As we go through life we must be in touch with a variety of people and personalities - the good, the bad and the ugly. We meet them at work, play , business dealings, church, and even online - there is no escape. Our hope is that we cross paths more with the productive than the destructive. Online I am not part of any facebook group, I am not on twitter or other social sites - Mylot is my only site, the site where I come to relax, discuss have fun and earn - but even here there can be no total escape. Sometimes you see a post by a member and you can't help but wonder - what was he or she thinking? how can someone actually think like that? Most times I would ignore and move on , because we are free to voice our opinions - within the guidelines of course, but other times it is difficult to ignore. What do you do when you see a post or a comment that truly leaves you amazed - do you ignore it or attempt to sway that person's way of thinking ?

@Kandae11 I'm sure that the guidelines in today's society are much different than the guidelines in the old philosopher's view of order. Most people that think they can have open and intellectual discussions are nothing more than bullies who only want to hear those who are in agreement or will follow like sheep.

Mostly I ignore it because I know they will never understand my point of view. It can be really hard to ignore some posts but rather than get into an argument that will go on and on, I move on. Sometimes I do a post with my point of view but without attempting to draw the other person into it or mentioning them. That way I feel better without hopefully getting into a heated debate.

I usually respond. Reading such kind of post makes me more curious to know that person better. I want to know more their life stories, I want to understand why they're like that. For me, they're the one that triggers most the interactions here because readers can't help it not to react.
It depends. I try to write my ideas if I am not sure with words like that, I'm not positive, not to be confused with not being positive. lol But some people have their mind set on something and that is okay I think? They are not asking for help but making a statement. The world is round, God is good, butter is better than marg and mylot is not my family it is a website on line that I like. However the internet works because aliens are in charge - now that might be debatable. you think?
