Are you always honest in your comments at myLot?

United States
April 20, 2017 7:13am CST
When you leave a comment on a post are you honest or do you just say what you think the writer wants to hear? Example: I think Ruby is adorable. If I say that in a post I am sure many would respond in kind. However, there are others who couldn't care less about a dog - do those people agree with my statement or be honest? In other words, do you give your true feelings or do you say what is expected? Sometimes it is better to avoid conflict by saying what is expected, just as it is in real life. But this isn't real life.....or is it? One thing most people know about me is that I tell it like it is. How honest are you? (Now be honest!) Photo from Pixabay

If I cannot be honest I skip the discussion, I do not want to be rude and sometimes I cannot stand what I read.

There are a lot of things I skip over since I do tell it like it is and I need to calm down LOL!

@AbbyGreenhill LOL, sometimes I also need to calm down. There are times that I am tempted to write what I think.

I curb my tongue also. I didn't in the beginning and well, hostility ensued so I reigned in. If we didn't curb our tongues here, all out vicious verbal warfare would rule the day.

I have always given honest comments when the comment has been a serious one. As you may be aware I also make silly or jovial comments at times, in which case I simply say whatever I find appropriate as opposed to what I really believe.

Rather than upset someone I might water down my opinion or I'd move on without commenting. I might try to be non-committal. I don't tell lies. And I honestly love Ruby!

It depends on my mood. I try to be agreeable in my responses to others posts even though I'm snarky sometimes in my own posts.

I do give my true feelings. I feel that fibbing or not being totally truthful is a waste of time and a lot of work. I tell like it is. Altho sometimes I do change my mind on some things from time to time.

@AbbyGreenhill Well, I can't be rude to people. It's just not my way. And unless I walk in their shoes, I don't really know how their life is. So I move on and return later with a different discussion where I might have something better to say.

@CRK109 I can be rude when the other person is rude first - and that happens here unfortunately.

If my comment would be deemed hurtful then I usually don't say it. I am brutally honest but sometimes honesty is not the best policy. So instead of lying I probably won't say anything.
