If you can't be nice, then be quiet!

I was just on one of the social sites I am with. This guy was not very nice to a lot of people. He had a picture of a skinny girl with her lip pierced that said "If you don't look like this then your ugly!" That made me so mad! I wrote to him before I blocked him and removed him as a friend. If you don't like people then you should be all alone with no friends and no one to complain to. Keep quiet if you don't like everyone in the world. I guarantee that for everyone he is very nasty to that there are more people who nasty and critical of him. People do judge others when they need to live their own life. Learn to deal with everyone whether you like them or not.If you don't then don't look t or deal with people you cannot stand the site of. Not everyone wants to look at someone who is so bad that they only like one person and criticize everyone else.

Don't be quiet - anything but that! When someone is acting out online you just drop a line or two, you know, correct them with a little style and grace and move on, it's not personal it's the WEB.

I can definitely agree. People who act out online tend to do it simply because they are convinced that there is no one that can "take them down" (as they would think) but in all honesty, no one wants to follow up their bull crap. Their behavior is absolutely unacceptable and should be dealt with the correct way. Since we are online, there is no need to draw anymore attention. Be graceful and wise with the words you use to explain that it really does not have to be that way. There is NO need to be harsh to others on the internet, let alone at all.

I agree there is a correct way. I've been reading over this thread and getting some good thoughts out of it however I disagree with one point made in the thread. Why do we really write to this post? Why are we discussing this? Why do we seem passionate about this topic? I think for same reasons I am. It is personal.

I agree. A common expression I've read is if you can not say something nice, say nothing. I can understand people having an urge to express anger or a rant but it is better if they can do that for example inside a post of their own then other people can choose to address it or ignore it. The very old idea of treating the other person the way you would like to be treated is a good way to behave.

Some things are not worthy of a response! Speaking about this rude person you are referring to. It almost seems they live to hurt others, or piss them off. It sounds like you handled it pretty well. Try not to take it all too personal. Thanks for bringing this up to remind us to use our courteous minds to communicate.

A judicious reticence is hard to learn but it is one of the great lessons of life. A joke-- A lady took her husband to a doctor and complained," My husband murmurs during the sleep at night." Doctor replied," Please give him a chance to speak during the day."
