Last night I actually had a dream about an 18-24 Pink Anon following me around. Like in real life. LOL. WTF?
But here I am again today. Because like a train wreck, GaG never disappoints. There are always trolls trollin' and catfish catfishin' and other weird ass shit to keep you from ever being bored.
A few weeks ago I posted a question about the bombings in Brussels and some new user girl came in with her first ever GaG post like "you stupid f@cking racist c^nt! how dare you you f@cking b! tch" LMAO What?
And the other day, a well known user here told me that I make him LOL on a regular basis, but he refuses to up vote my opinions because "I'm too big here". ROFL. Seriously? I'm only level 8. Can't wait to see what happens when the down votes come back. We are holding back appreciation now because we are worried about one additional xPer point for a user? Hahahaha! Alrighty then___
It's always something. Do you ever get to the point that you say to yourself something like "OK, that's enough GaG for a while, or today at least." ?
I think if the site is affecting you mentally, emotionally, or physically, it is time to take a break. If you are crying or feel sick or supremely jealous of other users, that is not good. That is not the purpose of this site... or most others, haha.
I tend to log in everyday, but I don't let it overtake my personal life. If I'm busy doing other stuff, I tend to forget about GAG and focus on whatever I was doing.
I also don't let GAG anger me. Personally, I haven't had a run-in with many people specifically targeting me, but if someone does target me, I'll just deny their claims, flag their stuff if it is blatantly antagonistic, and ignore the rest of it. If it is really bad/persists, I'll just block them and leave it be. I don't like getting into internet fights and I don't like getting angry without just cause. If they are trolling, getting into a fight would only please them anyway.
Basically, I'm a very boring person to fight with lol.
If I did feel myself getting angry over something though, I would just take a breather and log off for a bit and maybe watch a TV show I like. Either that or I'll play some music. That tends to calm me down.
I still believe GAG is a positive influence on my life though so I'll still continue to go on it :D
I found this site a few weeks ago. I was and still am overanalyzing a guy I have been seeing and posting questions about it helps me write about it and get it out. Otherwise, responding to questions helps me get my mind off of over thinking about things, so I have been logging on every day and then find I spent hours posting and responding to questions!!!
