I Really DO Have A High Tolerance Level..BUT...ENOUGH Is Enough

Okay folks I like to think I have a healthy sense of humor. Sometimes a person will respond to one of my discussions and isn't exactly responding to the discussion per se, but is cracking jokes and making fun of the issue with rather STUPID comments...so I let it pass and make some wise crack joke back...but then every once in awhile a MyLotter comes along that doesn't "give" up with stupid remarks... I can see this happening at maybe just ONE discussion...but then the person decides to horn in and make stupid, insulting, outlandish remarks on several discussions of mine...what??? Is this person stalking me?? Not only that but then the person decides to make insidious, lame, stupid remarks and attacks my friends comments/responses as well...and that's where I draw the line...NO MORE sweet, gal in me...then I get defensive and am on the attack...sorry but I just won't tolerate this kind of shat... As a rule whenever a person responds to one of my discussions I rate them a positive...even at first some remark that is plainly stupid or mildly insulting...but if the same person makes insulting, stupid remarks over and over again..will rate a negative...then if the person just plain doesn't let up..bingo..then I report--sorry but I just don't tolerate this kind of stupidity in people especially if they start attacking my friends with a$$inine non-sensical replies. So how is your tolerance level??...do you let obvious stupid remarks slide...at least for awhile, and if the same person doesn't let up, finally report them? Especially if they start doing the same kind of shat with your friends?

Like you, i have had one or two responses to my discussions that are to say the least impolite. I dont know why they feel the need, do they have ego problems...well possibly, but i also feel some people just dont like me, for whatever reason they have just taken against me and will either ignore my discussions all together (which is the adult way of dealing with it) or they react like a backward child. Recently I have had one of these and the person felt ok about being down right rude in their responses. Now i know manners are culturally defined and we should not condem someone for not sharing the same cultural references as ourselves, yet still i feel there are common rules of conversation and response that are only broken by the termainally stupid. Ok done venting blessed be

Yes I wish this person would just ignore my discussions if he doesn't have anything of value to my topic...and he does come across as a backward child despite his age....and no can't blame a cultural difference...he's a fellow American...Also he's older than me...I thought with age came wisdom...probably skipped him, right?

I don't blame you for not wanting to take abuse from other MyLotters. I know that usually when you are on a site like this you can report abuse via administration. Did you do that? If not, it may be a way to handle the situation.

I agree. If someone keeps putting down your remarks and makes it uncomfortable, then they should be reported. No one should have to put up with that kind of treatment. It is bad enough if they say something bad about you, but when they start putting down your friends as well, then it should be stopped. I haven't been on here long enough to receive any responses so I haven't had any bad ones yet, but I'm sure it will happen sooner or later. I only noticed the rating links when I came into this message and I believe I will be using it in the future.

There is nothing wrong with disagreeing with what someone says, but the way I understood the initial post, it was more like negativity against everything the person said as well as what her friends said.

I don't have much tolerance or patience, or maybe I do? Usually snide and rude remarks on my discussion I will be rude back I don't care if it's a newbie or first time responding to my discussion or how many times. I don't want to be rude and hopefully haven't been that way on mylot, but if someone is rude to me then I will be rude to them I don't care who they are. Of course if I know why I may still be nice - but that won't happen often since I was 15

Here are the words exactly.. (Quote) .."You are showing your self to be a true bigot with no room in your ideology that your beliefs have no real intellectual foundation..." This is what was said to my friend..you didn't say "acting" like a bigot..what you actually said was quite more damaging than "acting"...

Well... I don't know, I am still quite a bit new yet but so far, there are some stupid response to my discussion but not insulting though! I have yet to see one where they try to insult. Usually I am thinking that if it's not the answer I was hoping for, that's because they either misunderstood what I wrote or probably they live in a country where they rarely use English. No matter what it is, I still rate all of them positively.

Yes, I can understand when a person makes a strange reply cause his English may not be too keen, but in this case one can't blame the person for not understanding the discussion topic because his English isn't good, he is also a fellow American..

Awww black cat, who's giving you a hellish mood? Tell me? I happened to finish sharpening my claws, lol! If you feel that this person had overstepped or went beyond the boundary of what's proper, then, by all means, report him/her at once to the admin. Slashed him/her 100 negative ratings if you must.:P I do have my fair share of those kind of people. But I refused to take the bait and stoop down to their level. Albeit, I was simmering inside, I still showed them that I was a civilized, educated and sophisticated bunny. :)

I can tolerate him because he's a misguided idiot. He's probably doped up to the eyeballs, and that, to me is far worse than what he's coming down on. He's not just doing it to you, my friend... several different people, all over Mylot have retaliated to his idiotic, abusive and obnoxious remarks. He's not worth the trouble, to my mind. Thanks for sticking up for me, my friend. As you say, enough of that BS is quite enough. Brightest Blessings. x

I think you and I have similar tolerance levels, Pye; I'll also take it for so long, then I give the minus and finally I'll report it, which is something I've done only maybe once or twice. I agree also, when they start attacking my friends that's the proverbial last straw! I've got to do my homework here and find out who's doing this to you, Hon. I've got your back... Annie

I'm sorry that happened to you pye, I haven't noticed anyone attacking any of my friends in my discussions, nor have a noticed anyone attacking me in every one of mine. But i have noticed some of those rude people in other peoples discussions, and i even made a discussion about it after soemone was rude and responded to one of mine with nothing nice to say and the responses really didn't answer or follow suit with the discussion at all. I say rate them negative and ignore them. If they dont get a response back that they are looking for from you, they will go on to someone else in hopes of getting a rise out of that person instead of you. At least we would hope. And if everyone rates them negatively then they will bomb at mylot, and if everyone ignores them, maybe they will get bored and go away ;) *hugs & good luck*

Villains - too many faces of Villains
Just ignore them. Report is the best thing you can do. I was stalked by few people about one year ago. One get nerve to comeback to one of my discussions, but I ignored her/him. Those people are still here, hard to believe, but true. The best thing is to totally ignore them, they are looking for fight and reason to report you.... The abuser acts like a victim very often... They don't have life, they don't have friends, they don't like themselves... HUGS

I know who your talking about Pye and I thought he was way out of line. I would have done the same thing. You know, if there's a discussion I don't care for or agree with, I don't respond to it. Very simply put, this guy was asking for it, and he got it. I can't figure out what the heck he was after...talk about getting rid of negative energy, I'll be glad to see if he's banned.

I am sorry to report that my tolerance level is much lower than yours. I will usually give someone a second chance... but not a third one. However... I have a different approach these days... That sort of people are provoking us into reacting. And they get a great laugh when we do react... and it encourage them to do it again. The way I deal with this... is by not reacting and not replying. But if they breach the rules... I will report them immediately. No second chance on that one.

I haven't noticed anything like that yet but, I haven't been here for nearly as long as you so, you may have a trolling stalker. I would have to see if I ever get a trolling stalker before I can tell you how I would handle it. I would probably defend my friends too. I might let it roll off my back if it were just me. Or, I would just get nice an sarcastic back at them.

How awful for you.nobody should turn our various discussions into something to be made fun of.I hope I have never done any of these things in my responses. I try to read and reread any discussion I respond to and give my own feelings about it but I would never make fun of anyone's discussions. I have found most everyone here is kind and considerate but evidently there are some who are not. I might not always agree with some point but I never put down the poster or try to be insulting in any way. nobody deserves tobe attacked because of something they posted. If someone posted something then that person deserves our respect. and not our criticism.
