It happened to me multiple times already. I come to this site to give advice when I can, to share my opinions and to challenge people's opinions. I don't mind a little fight once in a while, but I don't comment with this intention in mind unless the question is hateful or blatantly dishonest. I am fascinated by people's motives and behavior and I like to get to the bottom of things. Yet, very often it seems people think I am picking fights with them when all I am doing is trying to better understand their opinion. Some people take it for what it is, some other if not most actually don't want me to comment and even complain that I write too much text. So my question is. If you don't want people to comment on your opinion, why do you come here?
Well, I do get annoyed sometimes when I just state that, for instance, I'm an atheist and 3 people comment "how can you be so ignorant?" "your going to hell" or "you're just living in denial" - it's called an opinion for a reason and opinions are hardly ever objective - I don't mind if someone doesn't agree with my opinion on certain topics but I think there's a difference between disagreements and disrespect.
Hey! So I tried messaging you but I can't because I'm not "level 2 yet" but you gave me some great advice before and I have another question. I just posted a recent one. Would you mind posting on it? I'd love to hear your feedback!
I relate to this post. It's mostly people not liking being told they are wrong and it's kind of immature. They post trying to get everyone to agree with their way of thinking and get upset when the people do not.
Lots of people come on here just to reaffirm things to themselves... like when a girl asks where you want to go to dinner between two options, they already made up their mind, they just want you to pick the one they want with out telling you to lol
All joking aside, I see it all the time where people ask if someone likes them and then if you say no, they just keep bringing up more and more tangential reasons they think the person likes them... regardless.
Lots of people come on here with their mind made up about something, they just want you to say what they are already thinking...
And lets not get started on the political stuff... I admit I get dragged into those things more than I would like, but the internet is not the place to come and debate those things...
in the end though, I stick on here because there are still enough people who really do want to know other people opinions or have questions too awkward to ask IRL and I want to help those people and love it when they actually listen and at least accept your opinion as an opinion-even if in the end they still disagree.
