Recently i came across a response to my response which had my blood pressure up. It was really absurd and though i did respond to it and it did left me a bad taste in my mouth and thankfully she didnt respond to my response but it let me think why did i responded to it. did it ever happened to you too?

HI Agrim, That happens with almost all of us. What we like and we think is not necessary for others as well. Ya it did happen with me many times. Some time I responded and some time I didn't. Reason is simple: I wrote what I felt, the other person wrote what he/she thinks..And that's why I feel I am here on mylot..To Share...It also helps us to know what other people are thinking on the same topic. So, keep thinking and keep writing....

Thanks informer for the response. It is not the different point of view which gets me angry as everyone has right to his or her point of view but when someone gets disrespectful to a community or religion or race or how some people live as compared to them then it gets me angry.

I never received any response that made me angry here in mylot. I just feel a bit challenged when my reactions and opinions are being questioned by someone here but I do not get mad. It is normal that many people's reaction clash because everybody wants to be the best or they want to claim they are right. Well for me I just take it in a positive way by debating on their arguments. I am not after a fight or to make other people's blood pressure go up but I am just after a friendly conversation, exchange of ideas and to learn from others as well. I think we should never take all things here seriously because after all it is just a website that we happen to visit because of money as the main reason.

Thaks yori for the response and Thats good you never had to read a response or comment to make you angry. Again those who get angry on conflicting views was not my idea to ask. It is a site for discussions , and discussions means different views od different persons, but so long it is discussion i dont think anyone should mind, the anger which comes is from fact that many person dont want to discuss they just want to hurt and hurt you on race, or would abuse u for no reason like little above ur response a lady said someone for first time in her response to her told her she is terrible mom.. now things like these are not discussions..r they?

i avoid those discussion that i don't agree with or will just make me feel bad in some ways. but it rarely happens that i see one. cause only those discussion that very one sided and that tends to criticize other people or judge people will make me want to avoid in posting or replying to.

Thanks hot summer for the response , i dont mind different views on any topic, mine can not be always right and every guy/girl here has his right of opinion , never doubted that , it is only when people start to be rude because u dont agree or u write what they dont like then it is problem and so long it is discussion it is ok but when it turns to abuse or racism or things like this then problem occurs.

yeah i have had it before.. i try to not even respond because if i show my anger it will just make them happier.. or if i do respond i try to stay calm and ask why their opinion is that.. i dont mind difference of an opinion but i do mind people that are just being rude and ignorant for fun

Thx for the response. I like your attitude and i am sure once you dont get angry the fun ppl get in making others angry is gone and whole point of their response/ discussion goes down the drain.

I just get angry about some people's ignorance but what keeps me coming back is the opportunity to learn why and how people from different cultures see things. I do my best to respect that others might have different opinions because of the way they are raised compared to me but I try to understand them and see their point of view. Sometimes some people seem to start a discussion looking for a fight and I will generally stay away from that. Usually they are not open to learning anything. Sometimes when someone gets you mad like that it is hard not to lash back, then they will respond and it will go on and on. It just becomes hateful and why drag yourself down to their ignorant level?

Thx for the response Nutty Momma ..you are absolutely right that we can be offended because what they say may be ok in their culture and not acceptable in mine or urs and it is always wise to stay away from such things as it becomes very bad fighting out here and in end degrading urself.

Yes, there are some discussions that really angered me, especially about religion, because I am very extra protective of my faith (Roman Catholic) that's why I am a little bit sensitive when other people keep attacking the church. I have a very high respect to God and never utter any blasphemy words and if there are people who disrespect God, Christ and Mother mary and other religious leaders I really felt bad and hurt.

Hmm before using bad words about others religion a man shd use those words for ur religion and if he can use it for his religion then only he should about others and look if i know u personally real well only then we can be free to use the words but not here. it is public site and using bad words on public site only show what kind of upbringing he got who used those words. I have my own opinion on religion and god and do express it but never do it disrespectfully on public domains.

yes i was the same.when i was first time here i encountered so many like that but time time we need to accept their opinion because we should consider that this site is open discussion.every one of us has different types of opinion

Since mylot is far reaching and members here come from all walks of life, we are bound to meet people of different characters and some are rude but most are gentle people. I have come across people who test my patience by responding in an inhuman manner, rude and have no diplomacy at all. I have to keep my cool and answer them in a very soft manner to the extend of feeling like a fool. In the end they surrender and ask for apologies. I can be vocal but when people come to my discussions I mellow down a bit and this makes them apologetic.

Thx for the response and i checked ur profile and saw ur from a very polite and nice culture and thats y you would always try to be nice and reasonable. Vietnam i never have been to but i heard though it may not be super rich but people are very nice. Well i am referring to some responses about where they hit u because u belong to not first world and things like that which is real rude and i dont like it.So i have decided that if someone is trying be rude knowingly i would ignore.

I wouldn't say angered. As most comments that upset me are the ones that make you wonder what are they even saying? it has nothing to do with what your discussion is about ya know? I just ignore those that make no sense & I also have the option not to accept explicit topics/comments so that saves some time not having to deal with inappropriate comments that way as well.

Hello agrim94! There are some discussions here that kinda hurt me (not really angry) I came accross to it and I just can't believe there such bad people like that. The discussions are all about filipinas, religion and politics. That's why, I don't usually go to politics and religion discussions because I don't want to cause trouble not because I am scared that my rating would go down.
