You can check my "question" to this questioner. Since, this was a question asking other GaGer's to raise any questions about space. And for the rest of the story, you can read my comments and also the woman who commented on my opinion.
I want your opinion on this. Are all the GaGer's aged between 30-40 so rude and immature?
Because, as far as my experiences are concerned, whenever i stated my opinion on a question, i saw more mature answers from 18-29 year olds than all those 30-40 year olds.
I wan't a moderator to end this question. It seems like i'm being insulted by people over here who have clearly misunderstood me and don't exactly know the situation properly.
Okay, I've noticed the same exact thing. I think it's because they think our generation is spoiled and they think we feel entitled. Which is true in some regards. They never have anything nice to say and have an attitude like we've got it so easy. We're 'dumb kids' in their eyes 99% of the time. The things our generation worries about is beyond them in someways, and they think we're annoying because we're worrying about petty things. One time I asked a question about my finances, and someone in this age range said I wouldn't have to worry about money so much if I spent less money on make up and more on my bills. Was that even necessary?
That brings me up to me next point.. Perhaps they're jealous that we're so young and try and bring us down in that way. These may not be accurate but they're my best guesses.
Ah, call me biased, but I don't think she was the immature one... Nothing more frustrating than talking about a subject you like, trying to explain things in an interesting way and get a great discussion going, and then the other person just kills it with such a comment "wow, I'm impressed by your intelligence" and not even a comment or question regarding the topic at hand.
No offense, but it just showed you didn't have a clue about what you were asking, and no real interest in it to booth. I don't think she even took your "compliment" seriously and the fact you're taking it this far and associating her behavior with lack of maturity and her age while you're very mature is a bit funny.
From what i had gone through , people in our age can understand you better. Mostly, they think the way you think and experienced what you had experienced, thats why they usually get you. On the other hand, the older people lived in a time different than ours, this is why they dont get us easily.
You misunderstood her. I did not see her being rude to you. She was nt aggressive to you but really informing that there are other females who are smarter than her and into it as a profession. I can see why she thinks you're sexist to her lol. I guess you are not exposed to a lot of highly intelligent females and this is where both you and her have a bad collision with other about life experiences.
not all of them are...but I think they probably have more experience in most of stuffs, since they are older, and lived a bit longer than us (generally speaking)... May be... maybe they think the questions that we asked are "nothing to worry about" so they hate to see that we are worrying about the tiny tiny things from their perspectives, because they have bigger problems in their lives? LOL so they tend to say mean/rude advice? :( maybe.. i was just trying to understand why..they are rude/immature T_T but really not all are like that.. really sorry to hear, you got rude/immature comments from them.
Um there's GaGers (under 18) who are educated and mature
I agree with you, she was way too sensitive. You did nothing wrong. She needs to get over herself. As for the rest of your question? I haven't really noticed a difference between the age groups and rudeness.
Not all but some are. Just like not all of the younger groups are immature advice givers
You asked a question that was ambiguous. She responded appropriately by asking for clarification. You responded with a snappy tone, like she was stupid for asking for clarification. She responded appropriately by overlooking that insulting behavior.
After you clarified your question and she answered it, you gave her a compliment. That compliment seemed anti-woman because it sounds like you thought she was some grand exception to the ordinary stupidity of women. Given the behavior before, it came across as, "I thought you were stupid like all other women before, but now, you do not look stupid, though other women still do."
It is possible that you did not mean it that way, but that is how it sounded. She had every reason to feel offended by it. She responded by explaining (without insult) that she felt offended. That was an appropriate way for her to respond.
Instead of admitting that you could have chosen your words better, as would have been the appropriate thing for you to do, you began to insult her intelligence (going back to the "Oh, you are a typical woman" theme from before) and her psychological health.
I don't see what you're complaining about, basically she asked you to narrow your question... which you suggested wasn't easy, she then told you how you could've narrowed it down. Then you became quite condescending to her about the whole thing, which I personally think is more immature than what you're suggesting she did at all. I mean being sarcastic, calling her 'ignorant' and 'stuck up' is hardly being mature, nor the better person in the whole thing.
I think she got offended way too easily. I didn't see your comment as sexist at all, when I saw that she got offended I was like "wtf he complimented you!" But that doesn't mean your 100% innocent either. You took kept arguing with her when you should have just dropped it, that would have made her look stupid.
She's a feminist but you get angry easily and you hold grudges. That's my opinion.
Also, by asking this question you make yourself look really immature.
i think you are right man! i used to know some user here who was in his 40s and he acted like a 14 year old trolling and picking fights with everyone. and i even had one with the age of 25-40 attack me when this new gag opened up at first and i attack him back and hit him were it hurt it the most. then a day latter he asked a question that was all about me. bitching and complaining because the attacks he made on me were getting frequently removed by the administrators
You kinda came of off cocky and condescending in that convo. man. The comment could've been taken either way and she took it the wrong way. I doubt you meant to come off like that. Also, Starting this thread about how 20-somethings' are more mature than 30-somethings' while using this particular issue is your center piece doesn't make you look good. This looks someone that refuses to admit fault in any capacity. Seriously, you want this thread closed because you're not hearing what you want to hear?
What kheserthorpe said. It was a misunderstanding but then you wouldn't let it go.
But then you asked a question devoted to judging an entire age group based on the actions of one person, which in the end makes you look less mature.
There are rude people all over the site. I haven't noticed any correlation with age.
