I recently responded to a discussion here that made me really incensed. I don't know why but I did response with a very choice words (I do not wish to be seen as the 'bad guy' nor decrease my rating) in the said discussion. Have this discussion been made in real time, I would have literally started a cat fight or challenge that particular perosn. Fortunately, I wasn't given that chance. Have you ever experience this kind of situation or emotion when responding to discussion here in mylot?

I do not ever recall picking a fight here and or on my off line life either. If anyone says something I do not care for here on myLot, usually I will re-read their discussion/response/comment twice to see if I can see it in a different light, because my first thought is that I having an opinion would want mine respected and so I will do the same. If there is room for clarification, I will but if the myLotter is unreasonable then I will skip and not return any comment/response. The way I see it is that I have quite a bit of stress offline and do not see it a point for me to be frustrated on any online site really. I can't say that I have had the same experience as yours because if I notice a member is a repeated type where they enjoy confrontations and or is always unreasonable, I just do not get involved and any future discussions as such. Sometimes too we must remember that language barrier can be an issue and therefore, I do my best to be sensitive to any with the barrier because it would not be fair if they are not able to understand my reasoning. In which case I can input my response and hope they understood and if not there really is nothing else we can do.

nope, everyone on here has been very nice, there has been disagreements, but on a healthy debate on a discussion. I haven't as of yet, been in a big a fight with anyone on mylot. As i've said above everyone i have spoke to on the site have been really nice and when disagreement is present, we settle it in a civil and correctable manner. :)

I never really liked being in that kind of situation. I don't want to hurt others feelings here for I really wanted my stay here to be meaningful and full of fun. If ever I encountered a discussion which I commented on was commented by the starter of the post or any other members here that I think is already not good and is already something I can sense that will not come to a happy ending conversation, I will just ignore the comment and leave it be and so the tension will not rise. This place a a place where we are free to give our opinions. Hopefully we do respect each and every ones opinions here so as not to start any fight.

Never hand any chance to do that.. I like to have a fight sometimes but people here are very friendly and I have never got any chance to do that here. Everyone here respects others opinion.

I don't pick fights online or off. Life is too short! If I hear or read something that I think is wrong then I try and put my opinion across, with facts, pleasantly but without antagonising. I saw the topic that caused you so much anger and will be responding there too later. I waited because I wanted to see how others reacted to it before adding my piece. I do admire those who state their own opinions, even though they are controversial and especially when they do so in a language which is not their own and therefore possibly express themselves differently from the way the intended.

I haven't started any cat fights yet in mylot hopefully any of my comments don't start any since I do voice my opinions. I have started one a chat site long ago when I 1st started using the internet..lol..I think it's funny reading the cat fights as long as I'm not in any of them.

As much as possible, I try not to pick any fights. But in real life, I do pick some fights. You know... I start it without me realizing that I am actually picking a fight. Well,... hopefully I am different online. :D

Hi there jeanneyvonne!!! I haven't experienced yet that kind of situation and I don't wish to experience it.I am not really a person who likes fighting or who gets mad easily and as much as possible I am really avoiding any situations that will spark a misunderstanding between me and other people. I just hate fighting and using offensive words.Here in mylot I am trying to choose the words carefully before using it in my posts and responses to be able to avoid hurting anyone.

hi jeanneyhvonne I have responded to those who insulted a dear friend of mine on here and I would do int again as the person was insulting and flaming and he did not even know the person he was calling all sorts of horrid names.so I do not go out of my wary to pick a fight with anyone but I will just hit exlamation point and report a person being insulting and nasty to a fellow mylotter. we are asked to report violations and its a violation to insult a fellow mylotter.I was attacked a year or so ago rather viciously by a woman who had been through the New Orleans tornadoes and was still affected by it.She really insulted me and a whole page of her insults had been reported and deleted by mylot admins. so I have found instead of picking afight Ijust report if this is really flaming or insulting.
