Do you think that the questions asked on this site accurately represent the situation? Or do you feel like the person may be leaving out vital information? No one is perfect and sometimes we may do things to push people away or cause uncomfortable situations. Do you think that because this side of the story is normally left out, inaccurate advice is given in some cases?
I think this happens often and you can tell by how a person reacts when they tell you something like "don't judge me you don't know the whole story". As you read the comments and opinions and people give their answers you realize they left parts out and they reveal it with ifs, and, or buts every time someone answers. It's quite annoying I think they do it on purpose but its pointless if you really want an honest answer then it helps us to have important details. They tell certain parts to see if they can get more answers of validation or to prove someone wrong who they may be in conflict with which mainly happens with relationship questions.
There's always 2 sides to every story. And it wouldn't surprise me much if both people were posting here at the same time and we didn't realize it. Doubtless some information gets left out along the way. Whether it's intentional or not, we don't know. All we can do is offer the best advice on what's given, and sometimes tease out more of the story. I've even become friends with some of the posters.
YESSSSSS. It takes a very mature, humble type of person to willingly be vulnerable enough to actually give the full facts even when they make them look or sound bad. A lot of people probably leave out vital information because they may have been really emotional and distressed when creating the post or because they can't handle holding themselves accountable for a part they may have played in their own mess. So you are spot on when you suggest that inaccurate advice may be given!
A lot of questions are biased. Sometimes the posters will step back and say okay well here's a set of articles or studies and other times they'll be like OMG Rawr rawr raw. One type of post is more desirable than the other.
Yes. I often mention to the question asker that I can give them an answer based on what they wrote but I believe there is more to the story then what you originally wrote. They normally respond and give me more information so I can give correct advice.
