    When I do get offended over anything on the 'net, directly or not, I *know* it's time to go for a nice long walk outside.

    Could not agree more!

    No way!!

    I'm a regular on another forum and it is very heated most of the time. When it does get heated I get hit the x in the top right and walk away.

    You can tell which threads have been made to stir the pot or certain members who are just plain bored.

    Not really offended, annoyed or frustrated, yes. Which is why I tend to read and not post much in the 'stir the pot' threads. The only time I have been genuinely hurt was when I was about to give birth to my son and had already chosen his name and I got hammered in another forum for our choice. His name is Zackery. I got told 'I feel sorry for your child', that I was 'going against the bible' (um not religious plus Zachary isn't even in the bible, it's Zachariah) and a whole heap of other insults. It really almost made me change his name until I woke up and realised I was letting some faceless Internet women affect me. He is still Zack and he's gorgeous

    Yeh i guess i do find that offensive. When people are asking for help with special needs and someone comes in saying they wouldnt get the child assessed as a label isnt going to do anything... Etc. That really friggen ticks me off.

That someone is prepared to take responsibility for what they have said may have been understandably taken as offensive is not only disarmingly honest but really refreshing. Thank you. (I'm not sure what the icon is doing but it's supposed to be a thumbs up).

    To answer the OP's question, I do find some commentary in here disappointing and like to distance myself from the bad energy this gives off.

    Nope. If you don't know me then you can hardly make an assumption on one thing or one opinion I have stated in a thread and I can't form an opinion if you either.
    It's the Internet which for some people can be like alcohol in the sense where they are straight up and say what they think or are full of Dutch courage, not really themselves and totally full of BS lol
