Do you think people take advantage of the MyTake feature on here?
I do, especially lately. I feel like people write things to either
A) Rant and rave about the other gender. B) To talk disrespectfully about people and doing so in a crude manner. C) To put up disrespectful and immature pictures, that at times border on porngraphic (or at least inappropriate) And, last but not least D) To get a rise out of people and just basically stir the pot and cause trouble. They are always making changes on here and I feel they should focus on changing the type of people that use this site, instead of the site itself. That's just my opinion though. So, do you think people misuse the mytake feature? If so, what do you think they should do about it?

Yeah, people misuse it. Do nothing about it and wait for people to get bored of trolling. I think the problem stems from the removal of pretty benign posts due to blatant bias and lack of objectivity on account of the mods and admins, people get pissed off and just start posting whatever they like because they might as well; since the rules and guidelines are regularly broken by the guardians of the site themselves.

That's part of the reason I mostly stay out of the mytakes. They're a pain to report too since they've been "preapproved". It's healthier for me to just stick to questions.

Do they take advantage of it? Well, if they use it they are taking advantage of it. Do they misuse it? If they violate the terms of conduct on here, then they are misusing it. Otherwise, they are just using it the way it was intended - to express their take on something.
I don't think they care who uses this site for the most part, so long as people use it. This is a business first and foremost- foot traffic is money.
I also don't think anyone misuses any feature on this site. Things are here to do with what ever you wish, provided you stay within the confines of the site rules.
That sounds like censorship to me. If people write some offensive things, ignore it. No one is forcing you to read it.

Mytakes are the worst feature ever added to this site. They're a platform for people to spread their stupid little opinions uninvited. This used to be a q&a site, not a place for people to rant.
That's what fucking 4chan is for.
My view on this is to incorporate your own censorship into this. You see something that you don't like just skip it and move onto something you will like.
Yup just like on opinions and questions, people troll on the MyTakes as well. It's just part of the internet. Just report the obvious rule breaking ones!

Yeah I agree. Some MyTakes are not in any way helpful and is just basically the diary of a angry person ranting out their feelings and opinions. MyTakes that give actual advice is what I enjoy.
I work so hard on my take... just because it wasn't sexist it never got feature.
I don't have time for drama queens. I just ignore them if I can tell they aren't legitimately looking for an insightful answer.
They just want attention anyway—why give it to them?
