I often wonder why I ask questions on this site as there seems to be so many judgmental people who clearly do not know how to express their opinions without being rude and putting humour before the feelings of others.
I read others questions myself, and there have been some that I have read from upset, heart broken people who are simply looking for an answer that does not require a nasty comment - yet some people feel the need to make comments that they find funny, which really isn't helping the individual. I can understand this attitude on questions that are light hearted, but when someone is merely seeking advice is it really appropriate to be so negative and nasty? I think not.
If you are one of these people maybe you should think about how your words can affect others and stop being a keyboard warrior.
I completely agree with you! Many GAG answerers truly overestimate the value in what they have to say, assuming that it’s worth the utmost which is actually quite arrogant. They clearly lack social skills, social intelligence, and need to learn how to give input with tact instead of regressing social skills to a child with no filter. You can definitely tell when an answerer’s goal is more to inflate their ego rather than to genuinely help someone with an issue. I think people like this probably lack healthy sources of confidence, true confidence not arrogance, in their lives. So they gain this false, minute, worthless sense of confidence by getting on GAG and playing “who can be the bigger a**hole/smart mouth”. Just imagine how pathetic they feel when they watch truly gifted people receive legitimate accolades for their NOTWORTHY accomplishments, feel sorry for them, and proceed to act like they don’t exist because technically, in your world outside of GAG: they don’t : ) So keep them nonexistent.
because its the internet! its not "Just because 'it happens' it doesn't mean it's acceptable" its "just because its not acceptable, doesn't mean it doesn't happen" its impossible to have anything online without spam. wether its a forum or a fb group, or whatever. it can't happen. it would take a huge a mount of mods to eliminate it completely and you have to remember that this is a free site for us. i dont think they make that much money to hire so many people. so you can't expect a spam free site here. and i do have to mention that for the amount of users that gag has, gags spam amount is really really low!
Well, a lpt of people seem to forget that this is the internet. Some people are rude to others because they just don't care. To them, they don't know anyone else on here so they feel they can make hateful comments and hide behind their computer screen. That's why I always say people should take rude comments on here with a grain of salt. It's not worth getting upset over. You can't control what other people do, all you can control is your reactions to them.
