Downright Nastiness

Started by: SoniaB (114)

Is anyone else on this website disappointed and disillusioned with the sheer nastiness of comments by many people.I'm referring in particular to recent comments on a thread on General,about 'child poverty 'If you have to resort to such insults you shouldn't be posting.Also,some begin another post about their holidays !I despair.

SoniaB.... I see you are a new member. I am afraid if you stay around long enough you will find the majority of threads wind their way along the vile responses path. I was also shocked by the sheer vitriol of some replies when I first joined. There is stated in the rules.....no antagonising of members by members but this rule is ignored daily. Best to let it all pass by and enjoy whatever is left.

I totally agree Sonia,there's so much anger and backbiting..I tend to add
one comment then leave it at that..it just isn't worth it..there are some nasty
people on this site lately.

SoniaB,
It is possibly really difficult to say how many people on this website are disappointed and disillusioned, but it can certainly be said, that many have either left this site or no longer contribute.
In comparison to earlier years, it can be easily noticed that the contributions of today are far less than those of earlier times.
As for myself, I am sorry to say, I am no longer greatly motivated by this site and I rarely contribute.

SoniaB if you do not like a posting click on the yellow triangle and report it. If you report the member enough times either their comments will be removed(pickfords) or they could be made inactive

Yes the post lost it a little but people have memories. Sonia has only been a member a while and won't know the history between posters. What Sonia contributed was only a similar comment. The woman she knows who spent on an I pad could have had it given to her by her parents or a relative to buy her child a Christmas gift. We will never know. I spent 30+ years in the construction industry and the discussion was tame in comparison to what I heard almost very day. It merely reflected life, maybe not at it's best, but it was typical.

No Broady,I know about the iPad because a member of her family happened to tell me.Also what has 'tame to what I heard in the construction industry' got to do with it???Get over yourself

Plenty. It is called life. Vile in my book is cruelty to children, cruelty to animals, sexual exploitation etc. The discussion was an exchange of views in cyber space. No harm done to anyone. If you don't like it don't read it. As for getting over myself proof to me is more than he said, she said etc. As PeterP said you can always run to the moderators and report it.

The trouble with you Broady is you can't stand anyone disagreeing with you,even if you are proved wrong.Get on with your insular little 'life' and carry on being deluded.

Yes Brpady, I take your point of the horrible things in this life that you list.However, I still believe that trying to compare this website to what is acceptable on a building site a stupid comparison.

I suggest we agree to differ.

I agree Sonia, nothing like it, it's the same people who go around, in a pack, attacking people and spoiling the site, it's disgusting

Yes BB,I can see what you mean.I get the impression several on here aren't happy with themselves so attempt to make others feel less than good.

SoniaB,
You possibly could be right!
Infliction and torment occurs in so many places and in so many ways. It is all too safe and easy to hide behind a computer with the feeling of having the right to choose the words one wishes.

SoniaB,
Ask you new mate B.B. why he has been banned from this site at least four times and returned under a different name. By the way just post and stop trying to be Freud. You know nothing about 99% of people on here.

YES,as usual you are both wrong Boredy and NAnna,I am a relatively newcomer to here. Also I have no idea who BB is , all I know you both just make it plainly obvious you can't stand being disagreed with.

Well said, SoniaB, they don't like anybody who stands up to them, that's why they do around in a pack, I'm suprised the other 2 sheep have not joined in.

Replied: 23rd Feb 2018 at 14:30

Still no answer to the question. Grow a pair and answer for your self. Incidentally Walshy sheep go around in flocks not packs. No what I mean.

Depends how much grovelling you do to mac,boredy, you getting back on there can't happen quick enough for us decent posters.
