Have you ever started a discussion and gotten a really rude response? I started a discussion recently, and I got one response that just made me cringe. It was so rude and self-absorbed, and I could totally tell the person hadn't read the entire discussion. w

Your response seems best to me. Kindly enlighten us all about how you manages to LOL when some one is trying to put you down or is sarcastic. I haven't met too many of your rare kind of people. I will be happy to join your class. You are really great.

Yes I have had a few Rude responses,some that have really hurt my feeling or even made me mad. I tend to ignore those post though because I dont want to encourage the poster to keep posting rude things.plus it is usually pointless to respond to these kind of post's because it usually ends up in a fight...now I dont mind debating but I dont like plain out rude people who seem to just want to fight

Yeah, my feelings were hurt too by some of those responses. It is so easy to get into a fight if you respond to them. I think if you want to confront someone like that, it's best to do it maturely and bemore knowledgable rather than emotional.

Yes just ignore it! Sometimes people don't understand where you are coming from or as you suggest have misread something. Also here there are people from all over the world and different places may have different ideas about what is rude! Don't let it bother you!

that's sad to hear that someone is here to be rude and not be fare on each persons opinion. we live in a diversity world regardless where you are. we are all here cause we want to be, for those who don't like people's post or responds is just plain rude. you share your opinion and keep it that way, don't be rude cause you don't like what you hear. no ones opinions is the most important everyone has a different views to everything in life. then we wonder how wars get started cause some people just know it all and how it should be done, NOT! lol

How rude that person had responded? Maybe he is telling the truth and you hate to accept the reality. If that person really wrote something that hurts your feeling, i will advise you to ignore. Don't worry, be happy.

I usually try to talk to the person and work it out especially if it is obvious that they have misunderstood my meaning entirely. Most of the time this actually works and clears things up....no hard feelings. If the person responds back rudely still, then I try to ignore it which is not an easy thing to do sometimes at that point. I make a mental note of who the person is and in the future try to just avoid that person. Anyone that is habitually rude usually doesn't last long on here anyway.

In my understanding, the correct way to look at the others' response is to realize that everyone is reflecting his/her own thinking/feelings. Good feeling generate good response; and bad feelings brings out bad response. Then, there are some who are not yet mature enough to be polite and courteous. A garbage can only throw out garbage; you continue with sharing positively.

Since I'm just new my answer is no. I haven't encountered anything like that yet but I can tell that it's really irritating to have somebody being so rude, inconsiderate, not reading your discussion before giving opinion or simply stubborn person on your discussion. If I get to encounter something like this I'll just leave the responder alone and totally ignore them. If not I would answer back to their ill-mannered post and never come back again.

Well I know I have seen that a couple of times, and all I can say is they probably won't be on here too long. Just look over there comments and do your own thing. Don't worry about the rude comments, they are only getting what they want by upsetting you. Just trudge forward and keep going. Eventually they will learn to stop commenting like that.

It's happened to me a couple of times. Mostly in Yahoo Answers and Orkut Communities. The minute I realize that somebody's trying to act over smart, I just give them a sharp reply, and never visit the blog again. It happens a lot of time, and I guess people really get a kick out of their habits by giving rude responses.

i just ignore it... i learned my lesson here... when i received rude comments, i just don't answer. i guest it could be better that way than an exchange of words here it could be misinterpreted by some readers.

I have only had one guy be rude on 2 of my posts, I just didn't say anything back and rated him bad. I asked a question... i cant remember what it was and his answer was "yes... please learn how to use my lot and are you any intelligent?" He could barely speak English and didn't make any sense! I was like w/e! lol

Well, so far it never happens to me. I am sorry it happened to you. The trolls and troglodyte are roaming free, I guess. My suggestion is to ignore them, they want your attention, and when you get mad, they're happy because they get what they want. If they are crossing to many lines, better report them to the admins, but never ever give them your attention.

I had this sort of response recently in somebody else's discussion but to my response. There was no meaning in what they said and it was totally not connected to my response. But it still hurts. The discussion owner also felt for that comment and gave her comments and consoled me. May be these people do not read the response or discussion properly and understand in their own way and comment.

I kind of don't mind if the "rude" response is related to the discussion, or moves it along in some way. It's the ones where not only does the person have nothing valid to contribute but they offer their vast nothingness in a very harsh manner. I get really upset by responses (to my discussions and to those of other members) like "I don't (do/like/think/say/ ....whatever the discussion is about) so I'm not going to answer," because I think those people are just trying to get more points for the day and really aren't being productive members of a community and I feel like that kind of response is rude and unhelpful. If the discussion doesn't apply to you, move on and find one that does....I think.
