I know we're all so big and bad but.....

Be honest...have you ever let a CM post piss you off?

I know, I know...these people shouldnt matter, they are just random, anonymous people hiding behind a computer screen yadda, yadda, yadda...but the thing is...I've made some friends on here..people who's opinions I value and who I look forward to talking to...so if I take the stance that everyone on CM is just some random person whose words shouldnt effect me, then wouldnt that apply to the people that I've befriended also?

I have to admit that I'm not good at the whole "your just some random anon who happens to have a screen name" thing...so sometimes people's idiotic, trollish questions, and rude, snarky answers piss me off

Am I the only one????

  • There's been a time or two when I just wanted to reach through the screen and slap another CMer, but someone inadvertently left that button off my keyboard. lol Most of the time though, I realize that the other person is probably getting ticked off too, so I end up laughing at the situation and trying to make light of it, which pisses the other person off, but oh well. It IS just the internet, and I do try to keep that in mind. lol

  • Yes. A few different posts over the years. I think the first one was when someone told me I wasn't a true Christian because of my stance on a few different political points. She went on and on, then took it to another post that I wasn't even in. Another time, someone made me really angry when she started bashing my DH and the "fact" that he was a "pussy" because he was in the Navy. She even implied in a PM that he'd joined the Navy vs. the Army because he was afraid of danger. She also tried to tell me that ALL Navy members were on ships. lol.

    I eventually get over it, but I'm human - I get upset.

  • I do let some answers piss me off. But there isn't anything I can do about it so I just tell myself: text on a page. My life doesn't change because someone wasn't 'nice' to me on this social network. Some cmmers are just nasty mean rude snarky people who have no life other than being mean nasty rude snarky people hiding behind a screen name.

  • I doubt you're the only one. I asked a question about Your Baby Can Read. I had shown my excitement about learning to read and how i thought it could be beneficial but I also know there are skeptics so I wanted a more broad view of it. I did feel there was one or two posts that implied I was a lazy parent, and it upset me because in the back of my mind, I feel guilty for being away from home so much to go to work. Btw, we never did figure out who down voted your name lol

  • I am waiting for the liar to come out and say she never gets mad. Whether they all admit it or not, we are human and have emotions. Being behind the screen makes it easy to hide, troll, or be an overalll bitch. But every woman has felt emotions at one post or another. I think that is why they troll or bitch...

  • Sure, there is one person in particular that has been around a lot in the past 6 months or so and she has kinda spoiled my love of this site. I realize she is just a bitch, but stopped posting as much because I just don't need the drama.
