Okay this exchange occurred on thread that I won't post a link to since I want to keep things anonymous. The person apparently replied without reading any of the posts in the thread. If anyone here wants the full context, I'll PM a link:
Member said:Saying sheesh rolling your eyes makes me shrug, nothing more. I've yet to read the content of your post. I simply read the topic title, and by it I gave my answer. If you find yourself personally attacked by my high-on-valium whim, then whatever, again I shrug.
Me said:First off, I'm a very sensitive person. I'm trying to use the anonymity of online forums as a step to help me overcome that. Second, how was I supposed to know that you were high on valium? ...Unless you were being sarcastic there. :tongue: And here's a lesson for you: When you respond to a thread, read what's in it. Other people may not be as polite as me.
I've posted a brief apology just now, but he hasn't had the chance to read it. I was only trying to give the person some advice. Just what did I do wrong? :crying:Member said:You do realize that by "telling me what to do" you could provoke me into hurting your feelings on purpose, right? I don't find people who tell me what to do anywhere near polite, I find them disgusting. Having a self-righteous attitude doesn't help the situation.
