Have you ever stopped liking another My Lot member?

Have you ever started out liking another My Lot member and then later decided that you didn't want to hang around them, because of the type of posts they made? Do you think the type of stuff someone posts is indicative of the person they are? As for me, I rarely find an individual that I want to stop hanging around on My Lot. That is with the major exception of argumentative people. I don't like arguments or disagreements. Those usually get deleted anyway, so why spend time getting embroiled in something that is simply going into the trash can anyway. Most times when I read over another member's profile or discussions and see topics that I don't agree with, I don't hold it against them personally. Sometimes I think that perhaps they are simply looking to open up a dialog on a topic so that everyone can voice their opinion. But, that's just my view. When you see that another My Lot member has started a topic on a subject that you find objectionable, do you wish to stop being their friend? Do you find that you stop posting to their discussions, after you find offending discussions? And, by offending, I mean simply a difference of opinion or other topic you don't think should be discussed openly. What is your view on this?

It never came into my mind that i would dislike any mylot members. I choosed topic to responsed with. As long that i can relate and my mind open with it. I do respect and accept different opinions. We have different views of every discussions we make and we responding with. By posting a objectionable responsed or by having a arguments or disagreement is not the basis of friendship or making friends. I think mylot was made for either contrary and comparable, agree or disagree, objecionable or not. And it made for us. All of us. YOu should not expect that all people here in mylot will agree all the time and not will offend you sometimes in a means of the way they responsed of your discussions.

I don't agree with things that a lot of my friends think. That's just the way life works. It would be pretty boring to be surrounded with people just like me all the time. The main reason that I delete people from my friends' list (or not accept them in the first place) is because their posts don't make sense, or they are too inconsistent in what they say. A few minor inconsistencies isn't a problem, but if one day you say you have three kids, and they are 8, 10 and 14, and then two weeks later, you are talking about your only child, who is only 2 years old, I don't really want to talk to you anymore, ya know? Some people seem to say whatever they think will get them the most responses, and it's just silly.

I tend to feel that life is too short to get worked up about it really, I have only come across this once on here and the person involved has long since left here now.

Helo beautyqueen26. So far, I haven't stopped liking anybody in mylot. I find that all mylot members are good people. Especially people like you, who are polite, intelligent and tolerant to others. I have to admit that sometimes there are topics that I don't agree with. However, everybody in mylot has the right to write what they want to voice out. I don't find their topics as hitting me personally. If I don't like a topic, I will just ignore it and find other topics which I like and able to answer. Even if the person has so many negative topics, I would try to find topics which I can answer from his list. I believe there must be several topics which I like. That's the way I do it here. Lol. And I agree with you about argumentative people. I hate arguing and if possible I would avoid such topics. I am not good at arguing, and in fact I think it would begin a fight if people start to get the wrong interpretation of what I am writing. I like discussing topics in a polite manner and not hurting others' feelings. This is the best way of interaction to me. Well my friend, this is my view in this matter. I hope you have a great day over there. God bless you, and happy posting!

I haven't so far unless they say mean things or be mean to me, otherwise I am still cool with the difference in opinions. And quite luckily, I haven't met people like that in mylot and so, I am happy with my friends around here so far. But if I don't like a person, I would just totally ignore him/ her and I wouldn't even bother to argue or fight with him/ her around here. What's the point of wasting the energy anyway?

Hi beautyqueen!No i dont wish to stop being their friend at all.I just dont go there and put a response.I stay out of it.I will still post in their discussions if i find it interesting and it relates to something i know of or experienced.Ive had friends in the past that discussed things that i never agreed on and i just stayed out of it.Why loose a good friendship because of a little discussion maker.Thats just my thoughts though.Have a nice day!:):)
