Internet arguments

I see them all the time, especially on FB and tend to just shake my head and wonder "why?".

Have you ever gotten into one?

Have you ever posted something and had the persons replying to it start arguing with each other?

I once posted on FB about how I got Roo to put some pants on by threatening to take a picture of him without them and posting it on FB. (I would never really do it, but sometimes you gotta be creative). I had one person that I didn't even know reply about what a horrible mother I was and how I should be ashamed of myself for publicly humiliating my child that way and so on and so on. I did not reply to him or think twice about what he said, he was a stranger to me and I really didn't give a shit what he "thought". Some of my friends and family went ballistic though, defending me and calling him names. I don't think he knew what hit him.

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, before internet or social media, and when Jessica was about 8 or 9, her dad "tied her up" with duct tape and tickled her.  It was a spur of the moment thing, and so funny.  She was so ticklish!  Of course I snapped a picture.   A lady I worked with at the time was horrified and told me that picture could be mistaken for child pornography.  yikes.  Jessica was fully clothed in the picture and it was perfectly clear she was laughing ... but of course I was very careful after that. 

No telling what the ramifications would have been if I had posted that picture online!!!

What is it with men and duct tape? Mark tapped me to my computer chair and spun me around once when he was in a silly, playful mood (until I threatened to puke on him LOL).

I have heard of parents getting in trouble for taking pics of their babies/toddlers enjoying a bath because it shows "too much". There are a lot of crazy ass judgmental people out there these days.

I've seen that happen. I think it's so dumb. They aren't arguing with me. They are with each other. I do simple posts, and people can start arguing over them. That boggles my mind. Lol.

That wouldn't have been good if you had posted that picture. I think from a very simple fun thing, you would have had a lot of trouble on your hands. You can't trust the internet.

A lot of parents take pictures of their babies, without clothes, when they are laying on a rug. I've heard of the CPS getting involved in that. It's just a thing that some parents do, and they have a lot of trouble, because of stupid people getting involved.

 Yes, I did. I had to delete the person, etc. She was in another group on here. She was very foul mouthed, started a fight with of of my bff's. Unbelievable!!

Yes, and I deleted them. Someone had said they were shopping and the person in front of the had an EBT card.....and a tan, nails done, etc. She 'obviously' was cheating the system. This was her conclusion. I a tan and nails mean your a cheat? And she and now a group of her friends went on to say that the one behind the register didn't have a tan because she was working, etc. I said maybe she was disabled, not all disabilities are obvious. They went on and on, calling me names, etc. It got really ugly. I figured them to be a very self-centered group of selfish people. I deleted them this morning. I don't need that trash in my life. Judging because of a tan.

On FB once I had to unfriend a coworker because his friends kept posting things I thought were inappropriate, like 'f' this and that, we're gonna get drunk, etc. This is a grown man, not a college kid. I finally got fed up with it enough to unfriend him, block him and a lot of other people for that matter. They'd start commenting and arguing about the best places to get drunk or how this was dumb, pictures of their drinking and stupid behavior. Not things I wanted to see or hear about. He was pretty pissed off about it at work too, and I told him straight out that I hoped his private life wasn't really like that and if it was I sure didn't want any part of it. This was in front of another person too, because he brought it into the open. Now I am extremely careful who I friend, it is mostly family, a couple old friends from high school and that's it. I wouldn't hesitate again to cut anyone of them out either.

Guess I've been lucky but I haven't had that happen.  Some people are just nuts anyway
