Forget about which side you may support with the fighting back and forth.

What do you really think about the mean comments posted about anyone?

I personally wish it would stop...So I am taking a stand here to say I don't support either side.

If your saying something mean to someone you are wrong! No exceptions!

You are absolutely right Chatty.
I know I'm not right to banter back and forth like I do, so I'll try and be better.

What is the point in trying to hurt someone you may disagree with. Nasty comments say more about you than the person they are directed at ;)

I don't think bullying of any kind is right. If you don't like someone or what they think, just avoid them. I try to treat everyone the way I want to be treated and if someone treats me bad, I try to stay away from them.

Hey Bex, I am having the same trouble as everyone else which is not allowing the meaniness to make me say something mean back. But it is really hard because its natural instinct to want to protect your friends and stick up for them. I have done it myself and still do at times when my Irish gets the better of me.

I don't know if I can do this either but going to try very hard to respond but not be mean about it. I still plan to stick up for who are my friends but without saying something mean to the person who said it. I also don't have all the answers so I am hoping others who post will share how they feel it should be handled. Hugs to you!!

I will take this as my first test...not sure how to take your post..did you say this to see if I would say something mean? Or do you really feel that statement is mean spirited.

I will take your post sincerely and ask why you feel the statement was mean spirited.

Hi CF, thanks for posting. I am hoping to read more about how people feel about it and how they see is the best way to respond. And I think it gives you more insight on who you are chatting with. Offbeat is suppose to be fun and use to be. I am hoping it will be again.hugs!

Ferrerman, I like you I think your a funny guy most of the time. BUT you have to agree what you said here is mean. I know you two are fighting a lot on here but if you wanted it to stop how would you respond? Just my thoughts here.hugs!

I just don't post here as much,
because I am kind of tender-hearted and it hurts my feelings to be attacked for no reason

(and it also really bothers me to see flame wars, too, even if I'm not involved...I just don't get it)

Yes we do, trolling is not just a job, it's an adventure for us.

well said MLR29! One thing that I feel is important though is to still be there for your friends and this is where I think it gets a bit tough. Sometimes I think it is important to respond to let the person know what they said is mean but to do it without calling them names also.

When defending a friend, just keep pointing out the good things about the friend without making any comments about the bully. I know its hard, but its worth a shot.

I disagree. It wasn't mean, it was facetious. Sam's a horrible person who trolls under many disguises. If he didn't hate our president and democrats, your other *friends* wouldn't give him the time of day and I think he knows that. Who needs hate-based friendship? I guess Sam does. Others must as well. While you might think it's admirable or pragmatic to over-look someone's hate, I don't.
