It seems a lot of people come on here to vent, but when someone has an opinion some do become a bit agitated or aggressive. I am not sure why, but they need to verbally talk to other people in their lives to help them. Coming on the internet to bitch and moan isn't new, but it's best not to take things personally.
I agree. I've been on gag a few years and it's definitely changed. Part of it is the nature of the internet and people don't take the time to read the question/opinion, and just attack without actually considering what the person is saying. Another part is that this site has become so political. When I joined the site was honestly used for dating advice. Now, there are so many questions and takes that have to do with controversial events, and it seems like people are posting them specifically to make others angry. It's like they aren't looking for advice, they just want to state their opinion and not listen to anyone else. I don't think that's what the site should be for.
I used to be a major GaG addict especially on my old account but I am now on it less and less - I guess I am trying to find a usage style that suits me enjoyment and time wise - One of the main things I found beneficial was not to engage in the negative stuff.
