I shared an opinion on a guy's question in which I told him the truth. I wasn't being all nice and "ooooh, poor baby, everything's gonna be alright..." But I told him that he needs to stop being a complaining loser and get his ass moving.
That guy... has posted several similar questions, basically moping around drowning in self pity and contempt for women. I know that reasoning is not going to go through him. I felt like someone needs to slap him, shake him up a bit, and tell him what to do instead of "oooh, I'm sorry you feel like that, don't worry, you'll find someone..." Because that's not going to do him any good. He'll just keep complaining.
But a mod removed that opinion. Guess the mods aren't fans of tough love, huh? hahaha... Is this an advice site or a friendship site?
What do you think GAGers? Would you rather have someone "ooh" and "aaah" you, even when you're completely going down the wrong way, or would you rather someone slap you and tell you the truth? On GAG I mean.
I gave advice to the guy... I told him to go to therapy because I think he has serious issues. I might not have used gentle words, but I put some thought and time into writing that long opinion. So am I butthurt that my opinion has been removed by a mod? You bet I am! Yet the guy's openly misogynistic questions are still online. And if I was attacking one guy with my opinion, he's attacking all women with his misogynistic posts!
@GirlsAskGuys: you know that people like the user I've just reported are ruining the GAG experience for many of us, don't you? What are you going to do about it? Do you tolarate misogynistic posts, that openly antagonizes an entire gender? An actual answer would be nice, instead of you removing this question, which would only prove my opinion of you guys. I know I'm criticising you guys here, but I just think that if you remove my post as "antagonistic", then what about those misogynists?
Well I personally try not to go overboard, but sometimes I do. I think they care more about the site's reputation than about "general niceness" by the way, it just doesn't look good if you have people calling each other `dickasses` or the like in a general conversation, after all. We're just sharing opinions, no one's right and everybody is wrong! :D
I'm not a fan of sugar coating. What you need is to find middle ground. Be blunt but refrain from name calling and just all out rudeness. Blunt hardly ever gets removed, "You fucking loser", will. GAG is a little to lovey dovey in a lot of regards. Just my opinion.
I feel ya, girl. I once reported a guy who was harassing my inbox, and get this: had a VAGINA as a profile picture. It took them more than a day to finally ban him even though I had other people report him. Users like that are the harmful ones, but also the ones that never get punished.
