I have posted in forums, feeling that some of my comments have been attacked, rather than commented on. I know there's a lot of tension in these forums sometimes. I don't understand it???
How can someone get their knickers in a knot about something someone has typed? And why do some peeps feel the need to attack others, i think it's for their own sick entertainment.
If you ever have anything negative to say to me, don't bother, because someones negative text can't effect me in the slightest. I do not entertain nasty idiots. More peeps should take the same attitude, and then maybe people can be nicer to one another.
I have a theory why people are mean in the forums. I think in their real life they would like to lash out at others but they do not have the intestinal fortitude to do it. It is much easier to be a meanie when you are hiding behind a virtual facade.
Lol yeah. But why though? Does it not upset people when they upset others? If i upset someone, it's never deliberate, and i feel awful to hurt another person. Some peeps parents failed to teach them a little something called ediquitte. Yeas i know thats a shocking mispelling. These peeps might as weell be baboons, but thats an insult to baboons..
If they are at work they would like nothing better to vent at coworkers or even superiors but they cannot. So they take their rage into these forums and vent at anyone who irks them. Either that or they are just miserable people and of course "Misery loves company"
No I am just as vile in reality. Seriously just say what I think it is more honest, that plus as the marcel said, why would anyone give a toss about a bit of text. You really would have to be super sensitive, and I am not.
Words have power, whether spoken in person or written out. Think of all the things that are "just" text. The Constitution, Declaration of Independence, collected works of Shakespeare... dare I mention the Bible?
It effects me, but not directly. In reality, words don't hurt me. But they do hurt some people. like my partner is a really emotional person and gets upset if peeps say nasty things to him, i don't get upset, i disregard negativity.
But it does hurt me to see other people suffer, whom are not as strong. Suffering, (Dahkka) can lead to torment. Human beings don't deserve that from one another.
I think it is the fact that people are arguing over beliefs. If you look at the forums, the Religion forum here on hubpages is the largest forum BY FAR. That being said, when I joined the company that I presently work for I had to attend training seminars that spoke of the dangers in discussing politics or religion in the workplace.
If you look at history then you will see that wars have been started over religion. Wars have been started by religion, for religion, and about religion.
It is completely absurd to me as to why people want to debate their beliefs in an open forum on hubpages. Which is a writing website. Not a theological one.

Not me, but the natives are restless! It's PCSS or post Christmas shopping syndrome. I think it has affected the ladies the most though. Going cold turkey from shopping does it every time. They'll calm down in a few days hopefully. Where the heck have you been?
You know marce - I said that silly thing about the word "peeps" and I may have offended you - sorry if I did - I just get the giggles when I see it in print - not so much when I hear people say it, but its funny - isn't it? and we used to call Easter chicks "peeps" so that's why I'm all hysterical - I thought after 24 hours I'd get over it, but I'm still all laughing and everything. I'm sorry. I hope you think its funny too!
I'm just wondering... I've only been on HubPages a few short weeks, but I've noticed from the Forums and the Religious section that it seems like the majority of people on here seem to be anti-Christian. I just recently...
With all the back and forth on these religion forums, I was just wondering has there been even one person, who has been convinced otherwise from their original beliefs. The atheists say one thing the theists say...
Hello all,I was just checking around in my activities to see where I spent too much time (reading in forum threads I am shocked that people write in) on HP or not enough time lately (minding my own business, I guess)....
Often, a dispute or argument is about religion. A lot of times, I'm drawn into it since I'm very religious myself. But, often I hesitate to respond because it can cause a war online( aka, a flame war). I usually have,...
When I first joined Hub, I looked forward to good debates, discussion, learning about other Hubbers, and even the occasional arguments. You can learn a lot from what people write, and what pushes their...
The religious forums for the most part are highly contentious and not for the faint of heart and sensitive of disposition. Only those who are strong mentally can and do surivive, even thrive. The rest of us...
