    It's like that in real life too, so I just sort of roll with it. Although, if people are being vindictive or really nasty, I will call them on it.

    As for your thread, *shrug* you asked for opinions, this is what happens.

    I agree totally, sometimes I thing BH should just be exclusively for certain members as no body else's opinion seems to matter but theirs. I thought you were really attacked in that thread for no reason at all, it took a really unexpected turn!
    I keep thinking I should leave BH too but I enjoy reading the threads, don't really participate unless I think it will help somebody.

    Im the same as you @SpicyTurtle

    I think sometimes people enjoy hiding behind their screens. I think there are ways to say things constructively, rather than just being cruel.

    Yes..the OP did ask for *opinions* not sarcastic remarks/insults including the memes.

    Sometimes people are blunt and rude all in the name of being 'honest'. I think that you can be honest without being mean, nitpicky and snide. In my opinion that's where a lot of the hurtful comments come from.

    And I disagree that when someone asks for opinions its open slather for a thread getting nasty. When its clear that someone is getting upset, or has said that they're feeling attacked and hurt then people should take that into account and moderate their tone. There's no points for 'winning' at all costs.

    I did not post anything like that. Actually, I don't believe I even saw the memes...

    I can highly recommend a hiatus.

    I'm back from about a month break. I found it good to have a break, it's healthy not to become too invested in people you don't know's opinions.

    I've been back a few days and I'm just going to see how it goes.

    Sorry off topic but it's lovely to see you back xxx

    OP, I'm sorry the thread went so pear shaped, it wasn't cool.

    The way you wrote opinions comes across as sarcastic.

    Just realised I only saw two memes- the one the OP put up, and one about not making jokes.
