Hi y'all. :) So, over the past couple of days I've noticed these negative, and quite frankly, hateful myTakes getting promoted, and I wanted to know why?
Of course, everyone is allowed to express their own opinion, whether hateful or not, but I was wondering why it's encouraged around here, and often praised.
I don't want to specify which myTakes I am referring to for the sake of the individuals, but just look around in the myTake section, and you will see.
I'm just confused as to why this hateful behavior behavior is praised, and even encouraged by featuring such takes. I've heard G@G say time and time again that they wanted a positive user environment, and praising this hateful takes is doing the exact opposite.
No hate, just genuinely confused.

Personally, I haven't noticed this. In fact, many myTakes are, I feel, well-intended and well-written. There are some very talented writers in this community. @Stacyzee and @zombiebabe are the first ones who come to mind.
The problem I have with the idea of getting rid of myTakes is that there are people here, myself included, have things that they want to say, but can't say them fully or properly in a regular post. They might have an important story to tell about themselves and their experiences that would be helpful for other people in similar situations.
Personally though, I'm sure that some things could be done differently regarding how myTakes get featured. I don't think that they should be automatically featured just because someone has the "Editor" tab.
I see what you're saying, but it's one of those "is it better for ten guilty men to go free or one innocent man to be imprisoned" things.2

Because they encourage site traffic and hits. I have a problem with it too, it just shows that GAG values increasing site popularity over maintaining a positive and hate-free user experience.0
