I have noticed a common attitude on this website where people act as if they are entitled to your cooperation, patience, and listening ears despite how foul, dramatic, and argumentative they present themselves. I disagree. Just as in my real life if someone was completely negative, toxic, dramatic, argumentative, and essentially a child's mind in an adult's body; I would not give them the time of day. I wouldn't speak to them more than necessary if I had no choice, such as a work or class environment. I would essentially "block" them by keeping them mentally and emotionally excluded from my life as I give them zero time, attention, or energy.
So I'm confused as to why so many GAG users don't humbly understand that no stranger is obligated to patiently listen and pay attention to a piss poor, vibe killing presence? Help me understand this? What are your thoughts on this topic?
It is the nature of the internet that people evolve personas - I suppose we are happy to see like minded people but like real life there has to be room for dissenting voices - The site can't do anything until they cross a line.
Aggressive people conquered the world and currently run it. That entire the meek will inherit the earth thing only applies after the aggressive people have killed each other off for resources. It's not childish to act that way, it's just not gentile...
Consider your own statement. Its a two-way street and furthermore an opinion based website and they are therefore entitled to submit THEIR opinion. Just because you do not agree with it, doesn't make it any less valid.
This is a public forum. Exchange of ideas is all that matters here. Aggressive and dramatic presentation, only helps influence people emotionally so they can let go of their biases. It also helps to actively shut down morons instead of waiting for them to go away after spewing their moronic verbal diarrhea all over the place.
I explain once and if they refuse to read, instead of explaining, nest time I use the word stupid. It hurts a person enough to either go back and read, or go away and stop annoying me. It's like an anti-moron spray. Very useful and beneficial. It also reduces typing time since it allows me to get to the point.
There is no "vibe", if you want vibe, go hang out in real life. This is a forum. The only thing that should be forbidden here is stuff like spam, trolling, harassing in some non-written ways, etc.
If we start banning people for not being "nice", that's censorship that would quickly turn this place into a wasteland of mouthbreathing morons (mostly just women and a few emasculated nice guys). Everyone hates having their ego bruised and "not nice" is an excuse to censor those who bruise it.
If you think someone is not being nice, you can fuck of. Find another question, find another take. No one owes you anything here lady...
I prefer not to block anyone, unless they pm me perverted things. This is an opinion site, you're bound to meet everyone with every type of personality you described here. I think it's good to be exposed to different types of people, I've found lots of people annoying and argumentative on here before in multiple questions but then once I got past the fact I didn't like their personality, I actually found that they had a few valid points. Also I like to point those sort of people out and tell them why I disagree with them, some of them actually were not as bad as they initially came across.
That's just the way I handle things though and it's the way I am in real life as well, a lot of times people like that are the way they are because people just ignore them and let them carry on the way they do, essentially a block button. It's up to you how you handle the situation though, my way isn't for everyone lol.
