What sort of person are you, Read the comments vs Don't read the comments?

Depends on the subject or how much information I can get from the headline. Sometimes I just know I'm gonna end up pi$$ed off and keep on scrolling. Sometimes I'm even silly enough to get involved in the comments. M
In regards to the whole BF'ing in public.... I'm so over the subject and the frustration it brings me through people's narrow POV that I don't even bother.

I do read the comments for me it's like a car crash situation, you don't want to look but then can't look away.
Bfing in public, seriously people get over it, mums aren't flashing you, there's more to see at the beach or in town on a Saturday night! Beside that, they're not breaking any laws, it's their right to be able to breastfeed wherever they are legally allowed, it is actually against the law to tell them to cover up or leave. ..

I do read the comments & only 'like' a comment I agree with but that's it. Sometimes when people comment something so silly I do wonder if they're trolling the comment section to stir the pot (because nobody cold be that arrogant, right?!😜).

I read the comments. I take it as a learning experience about how diverse opinions are in Australia. And usually I'm just glad I don't personally know any of these m0r0ns!

I read the comments and there are times I want to add my 2c but then I think nope not worth the backlash etc. I have read some very interesting things on BH lol. Certainly has opened my eyes to how ppl parent and their priorities etc

I generally don't read the comments. I definitely don't read them when I am alone - I need someone to vent to if I am reading them. They make me sad - there are so many people who completely lack empathy and that terrifies me.

Depends on the topic. If it's something regarding a person on the bigger side I don't because the fat shamers come out in droves. If it's something about welfare I don't for obvious reasons. Something about parenting I do at times but it depends on my mood.

No. Unless I'm feeling masochistic and want to be completely bummed out. After years of internet I've just concluded that comment sections just give a public voice to the worst kind of people who would otherwise have to keep their awful opinions amongst themselves and the people unfortunate enough to know them. I don't want to give them the pleasure of having their opinion heard.
Of course there are perfectly nice and sane people who comment on things, but they tend to get drowned out by the crazies.
