I agree Marcie. I have been here over a year and never had any problems with anyone here until here recently. I accepted a new friend and they started sending me some very rude private messages. I messaged them back several times because they would not stop. I told them off even though I hate doing that. I am here to be nice to people and they need to have respect and return the favor also.

Yes. If they are only here to cause trouble, then they need to move on to some other place. We sure don't need it here at Mylot especially when we have some soft discussions and some heartfelt responses. they can either be nice or stay out.

I am sorry that something happened to upset you. I just answered the topic of another friend who is having problems with someone on here. I have learned to ignore it and move on. Everyone on here is not going to know how to act and we have to over look them. A long time ago, I got into it with a woman on here and come to find out, her husband was on here too. They both took turns attacking me and had other friends doing it too. My star rating has never recovered from it. But, it taught me a very good lesson, to suck it up and move on.

Is someone being mean to you Marcie? Send your possie to go beat them up. I think mostly Mylot is very nice, but just like in "real" life, there are bullies and not so nice people. Try to stay away from them, and if they respond to one of your discussions, just ignore them and go on. You know who your friends are.

I have certainly had my share of nasties. I usually report them but if they persist is being really mean and stalking me then some of my friends back me up by letting them know what we think of them. It amazing how one's myLot friends will rally around if they think are being harassed. Thanks guys!!!

Mylot.com has been the best forum that I have ever joined. Not to say that I have earned lots and lots here. But many of the discussions have provided me with much valuable knowledge of various issues. This is something that cannot be bought with money.

I agree with you. If you have nothing to say good better not respond toi the topic. Or you might hurt the one who started the thread. But on my part,if I got nasty responses, i still say "thank you". Well, that's the best words I could say to them.

Often there is, sadly some people cant just move on and have to spread their oppinion regardless of the impact of it. Not telling any names there is particulary one that pisses me of, some person pushing down others just because he is a fanatic follower of evolution. Its ok he believes in it, but he doesnt have to go around forcing his oppinions down others throats. I often try to defend people when it happens, ive probably also offended people but thats never my thought when responding to any discussion. Why some people deliberately push down on others i can only guess, but its sad when it happens because often the outcome isnt good and just leaves a bad atmosphere. If you can write something good or defend the person being pushed, then its worth writing something but otherwise not. Not nice being a part that pulls the level down further, and learning when and when not to write helps.

Yea, every once in a while there will be an idiot trying to be stupid! And I treat them just the way they try to treat me! I guess they can't think of anything intelligent to say!

Yes, I have been cyberbullied on here. I wrote a discussion about this bully and even though it got deleted, it helped me get rid of this person. Some of the kind people on here that saw the discussion before it got deleted helped me out and we weeded the bad guy out. And to those that did so I give a big THANK YOU! If it hadn't been for them I'd probably still have this person bullying me. Yuck. Cyberbullying should not be tolerated by anyone! I know we aren't supposed to pin point users on here, but sometimes a gal's gotta do what a gal's gotta do! Even if that means going against the rules.

Thankfully I havent really had to deal with anyone like that on mylot.com yet...because I thought that everyone was nice because that is all that I have ran across....I do agree with you that there always seems to be a bad apple in the bunch that just tries to be rude and hateful and ruin it for everyone else...I think that on mylot.com you should have the choice to start any discussion that you would like to and it should be where they can only say positive things(voice their opinion but in a good way and not hateful)

Knock wood, I haven't met up with any cyber bullies on here in a long time. I usually just ignore them...why get my blood pressure up?! It's true, no matter where you go, there's always one or two who just have to make everything hard and create drama. I've often heard that people who are like that have problems feeling inferior, and that by causing problems it makes it look like they're superior and 'better than them.' Flaming people is never necessary! Just because somebody has a different point of view doesn't mean that they should bully or flame somebody. When that type of person repeatedly does it though, it definitely says something about the type of person they are!

If I'm not interested in a discussion, then I leave it. If someone writes something that I don't like, then I leave it. Who am I to judge the way others think? Keeping open minded about everything means greater understanding and greater knowledge. Close your mind, and you learn nothing new and run a greater risk of age related dementia too.

I've not ever run across this within my discussions that I start. But I don't start very many either. Maybe that chance increases with more post that you make. I don't know, but don't let it bother you, just move on.....
