  • I think it's really hard to distinguish rudeness from just a straight forward comment sometimes online. That's the problem with online socializing and sites suited to the same. Sometimes it's impossible to know someone's true intentions or meaning without talking face to face with the person.

  • Social networks, I just ignore it. Same with real life but I usually get mouthy with people who are rude and say smart ass comments.

  • People think I am rude all the time online. But in reality i'm not, Just honest & straight to the point. Sometimes i feel like people havent experienced someone like LOL. As for others being rude to me, I usually have something just as sassy to say back to em, things lke that make me giggle.

  • Online I tell myself its text on a page, not to say I won't call someone out for being harsh/rude. IRL I'm a little more assertive with someone who is rude to me.

  • I ignore rudeness. Not worth my time to address any of it.

  • Same with both. I delete it and move on. Then I make a mental note to try and steer clear of the ignorant person.
