Being verbally attacked.

In my last discussion, I was attacked by a relatively new mylot member, so I have decided to ignore this person, and will no longer respond since he continued to verbally attack me even after I asked him nicely to stop. I don't know this person and have no desire to, and have never responded to any of this person's discussions in either a positive or negative way so he had absolutely no reason to do this. His last response in which he pretty much called me a whiney woman and basically told me I should shut up, and also pretty much called me a coward, I did not respond and simply reported him. I can say a lot of things about this person after visiting their website, but I won't, except to say they are a hypocrite. In the future I will refuse to respond to negativity, name calling and verbal abuse here on mylot.

It is sad when we can't have people respond with respect, even when they disagree. We have a very good friend who calls people 'stupid' and worse if they don't agree with his politics. I don't mind anyone having strong views, I do mind if they are rude about it.

Yes, I agree. Everyone has a right to their opinion, but they don't have a right to make comments that are just mean and uncalled for.

No, they don't have the 'right' to do/say things like that, but they seem to think they do. I keep hoping to be a better influence, or at the very least, to not sink to the level that uncouth people so often do, in their speech and actions.

How horrible that was for that person to do that. It is good that you reported them because myLot does not need someone like him harassing others. I think that you handled it well in response to his comments that he made.

Thank you, I didn't know if this person was attacking anyone else, or if he just randomly decided to attack just me. If I see him attack others, I will be sure to report him also.

Report him for being abusive. Its not allowed to be abusive to other members. That will fix him from treating others with out respect.

I feel really sorry for you but somehow I do not understand that why people spread so much of bitterness in this world, Life would be beautiful if such persons are not around, it is good that you reported this person as abusive. I am really proud of mylot community but I truly feel that those who spread bitterness should be definately banned from here.

I'm sorry! But I am hoping htat you stick around I think that alot more people are nice than nasty. I had someone get really nasty with me when I first started out. I said something about we need spell check. ANd she went on and on about me being lazy! I never explained to her why because she didnt deserve a reason. I am really bad at typ~o's. My eyes have been going down hill. At times I will look and look and I cant tell is that a m or an n. And they are right next to each other. Yes I was just at the eye Dr. I'm getting OLD!

I think that is a great way to handle it. Ignore it and report it. Sorry to hear you got attacked. Alot of the time if you ignore someone they will get bored and move on. LIVE IN PEACE
