I've been offended on here when people have had a go at something I've said and taken it entirely the wrong way. I think there are a few people on here who like to stir the pot for their own entertainment.
I am overly sensitive at the best if times though.
I dont get offended..At the end of the day you kind of have to remember its a forum on the internet with a bunch of women who dont know each other..words are easy to read but a lot of the time can be misinterpreted because they are written..when youre the one reading what someone else has written youre putting your own emotion into them and sometimes might not click onto the way it was meant to be said. If that makes sense?
Nope, mostly I just don't give a toss. Call me anything you like, have whatever opinion of me you like, I don't know you, so it's water off a ducks back.
But there have been the *very rare* occasion when I have been accused of doing XYZ which is just complete and utter bollocks and yes, I have taken offence to that.
it takes a lot to offend me so no i dont get offened
It's all water off my back. They can call me anything they like. If it's true, I'll gain nothing by defending myself. If it's a lie, they know that and I know that, so they've gained nothing.
However, I don't take sweeping generalisations about my lil family lightly.
I guess if someone made a topic and put "certain person", but it was quite obviously about me, I would be quite annoyed. I'd try and settle it through PM first but I would make a general post in the topic thread if other members were joining in the witch hunt.
If I read something nasty about myself usually I just yawn and laugh, and don't even bother to finish reading it.
Do people really send nasty PMs?? Yikes.
Nah. I get peed off at things, especially at ignorance, but rarely personally offended. We really need to remember that posting on a forum is different than conversing in real life and that generally, we don't *know* each other. It helps to have some perspective and try to take most negative stuff said with a grain of salt. I agree though that it can be hard sometimes, depending on the topic.
What gets me is when people make an OP about a situation asking for opinions expecting to get a "hugs and rainbows" response and then they get peed off when they get some opposite responses. Drives me nuts!!!!! Don't put it out there if you don't want honest opinions!! *vent over* haha

I try not to let the internet get to mez. If something upsets me I just step away. I use to get upset but now I know life is too short to worry about what people say on the Internet.
