Some do, very few though. The majority are still too hang up with political correctness and social conventions despite the fact this is the internet and you can basically say whatever the fuck you want.
I think it depends on the person, like there's people who will just tell the asker whatever they wanna hear so they can get the MHO, then there's people who will lie in how do I look questions because they don't wanna hurt people's feelings, then there's the people who make sure they are always staying very PC and then there's the people who just really don't care and actually answer honestly - but those make up the minority, I would say like 40% of gagers :P
I think the anonymous people often do. The rest of the time people often seem too worried about offending someone to be honest enough to give helpful advice. Just look at the rate me questions that give average girls so many high scores. Most of the people are just trying to make the other person feel better.
seriously... I think most do... of course there are exceptions, but I personally don't post at all or do it anon if I don't want a specific opinion connected to my name. and wouldn't lie just to make something look better
good lord no. they usually just suck up to the op to make them feel better. then again, i feel like a lot of the people who ask questions just want to hear what they want. i've been blocked for giving an honest opinion... #truthhurts
Not sure about the How Do I Look topic, I prefer to be direct, but sometimes some questions just seem like it's better if you don't say anything if you just say negative things so I tend to skip over those.
No way in hell. Especially not the women. They're frozen with pc dogma. Terrified of being outted and thrown from the good girls club into the cold with the likes of us truthful folk. I say it as I see it and I will not lie to suit any do-gooder arsehole. Bloody cowards the lot of them. Their arse holes must be killing them from all the time they spend sat on the fence
I try to the best I can, I see no point in lying, even in real life, it doesn't accomplish anything other then foot in mouth syndrome, I may embellish a touch now and then but mostly with stories, but even then still pretty close to what actually happened.
Some people certainly do. Some people certainly don't. Some people spend their entire answer boastfully trying to show off what they think they know and trying to stroke their ego with zero to little genuine regard for how their answer will impact someone's life or state of mind. Some people only open their mouths with the hope that they will be able to argue and bicker while masking it as a debate.
It's best to apply their answer to real life situations or see how realistic it is on the grand scheme of things.
I think most people are usually honest. Which can be awesome or awesomely hilarious. The trolls here aren't usually very good and like the 'best" ones are usually the mods anyway so it's hard for people to say too much without getting called on it.
The only pure honesty out there exists in each of our heads... safe from the world unless we decide to share. I think there's more honesty online than in real life, but I also think a lot of honesty is not a good thing. Humans can't handle the whole truth. We wouldn't function. We wouldn't get along.
Well, I can't talk about everyone here, but I personally always like to give my honest opinion, if I feel, like i won't give my honest opinion, I won't answer lol 😆 but I think some people do.. Others don't.. It depends on each on individually
