I'm honest, and answer honestly. I run by my philosophy of how I think I should live and advise what I'd do in the situation because only I can see a stiuation in the way I can exactly.
I get downvoted sometimes; but that's just because some people don't agree with me sometimes... and of course no-one will agree with you all the time.
It's the points system I don't like. I listen to everyone from level one up to 10 because some levels ones can speak as if they are guru's and some "guru's" speak like they were smacked with the stupid stick (some with the whole tree).
The main point is. My philosophy entails "honesty" as one of it's major rules, and I hold true to it.
i'm always honest, even when that gets downvoted. people who ask pointless or ignorant answers can expect a blunt answer, but those who ask interesting or meaningful questions can expect a wel thought-through, hopefully helpful answer.
