People trying to pi$$ others off on myLot, why not try it with me?

Hi everyone. I stumbled over some discussions, where some people can get a bit nasty towards others. I thought: "Ok, not my discussion, not my concern..." But I recently got inspired by one particular person (to wich I'm greatful for that), to make it my new subject, to get all these angry people to try to pi$$ me off! The successful response will of course be rewarded with the "best response", promise! My statement for all of you out there which actually like to p people off: "You will miserably fail!" So better don't even bother trying. (I will have to do it myself, because you just won't make it, haha!) But you could give everyone else a break for a while and come here and give ME your best shot! And for all those of you, who get "abused", refer these people to this post, here they can let their steam out, I will manage to twist it around and turn everything they say into a compliment, or at least, throw it back! If they don't let go of you, let me know and I will come and "invite" them here lol. It sounds like great fun to me, a post, where I expect you to be as ironic, witty and sarcastic as you can. I hope you will have as much fun here as I think I will have...

I think you're annoying and long-winded. You have too much faith in your own intelligence and writing ability, and think that someone actually wants to read those extremely long responses you post! Oh wait. I was writing that about you because you left a HUGE response on my poem discussion, but it sounds like something people have told me on here more than once. I guess we have a lot in common. *giggles* Oh, and just to clarify, I liked your long response, I'm just teasing! I do wish I hadn't been absent the past few days, so I had some troublemakers to send you. With any luck, someone will bring a Bible-thumper or two along for me to horrify.

He-he, it took me long enough to finally annoy someone, over 4 weeks! lol ;) But maybe I'm just testing patience... I noticed that too, that we have a lot in common. For all people which really get annoyed by these long responses: There is a reason to why someone invented the "scroll-bar"; try it, it actually works! (Now I'm getting annoying) lol But (anyone correct me if I'm wrong) wouldn't it be true that long responses are only (but not necessarily) annoying when: 1. They are not on your own post, but on someone else's ("you" in general) or 2. You don't agree with the person responding or 3. You just have no reasonable argument against it What else could be a good reason? Thanks 4 your support...

Hi Mike. You have been drawn by your anger and frustration and you want to get even. So, you turn to this site and challenge everybody to your level. There are still many users of this site whose aim is to help someone and make a difference. Why not look at those who posted over 6000+ and observe. Are they cocky, or are they trying to be of help? Of course, there are a lot here who also try to earn by posting anything under the sun. Just be calm and just make someone happy today. You only posted a little over 30 and you are cocky. It pays to be humble!

Hi Ngippol, Thank you for your response. You can believe me, when I tell you that I did not initiate this post out of anger or frustration. As a matter of fact, I hardly remember what that feels like. I'll never lie to you again, if you don't believe me! lol To be honest, I haven't given much notice to the "numbers" does a higher number make people automatically "smarter" and more deserving to voice their opinion? I respond to topics, not to numbers. People with high numbers have spent a lot of time & effort here and I treasure and respect that, of course. I know, maybe I should restrict myself to the standard "4-liners", but I like to make my point clear. Even if only one person actually reads it and appreciates it I consider it worth my while. I'm not "money-" or "star-hunting" here. Maybe I also deserve to be "cocky". After all, I am 41 years old and had my fair share in conversations too, just -no one kept track of them... I don't think that it is important for the quality of a response, to have a "high number" lol. (This doesn't mean that my responses are "good", that is in the eyes of the beholder, what counts is the intention behind it and my intentions are intentionally good. ;) It also pays to stand up for your believes. (I for mine, in this case) And as you could read in the post, I do try to help others with this; the ones which do feel offended by others.
