Explained by Darkest_Serenity...

OK......so we know we have the potential to be triggered and even the coolest of you Panda's out there have lost your cool once in a Blue moon. We have all gone through our own experiences *some horrific* some share / some don't and that's personal choice. I tell NO ONE certain things unless I am happy for them to know (I specifically hold back out in forum) because how can I expect complete Strangers to Respect my feelings ? 1) they don't know me from Adam and 2) how would they even know if I was telling the truth ? THIS is an OPINION SITE where all kinds of views are going to be heard and sometime's we're not going to agree or appreciate what some have to say because we can relate in a way some may never be able to understand. I understand when certain memories are triggered it hurts , makes us sad , makes us angry. IF we were in our own Lounge we would have the choice to say "Shut up , I don't want to hear this , can you stop talking and leave please" but this isn't our own personal space , this is AMIRITE. An opinion site for all. An Online social lounge where anyone can walk into a discussion or start one at at anytime.

True. But some get more freedom to make it personal.

I remember being scolded in a PM because a troll here blocked ME, and YOU didn't think it was right that he couldn't defend himself. Remember? Check your PM to me if you forgot. He was kicked off the site the next day. Maybe he crossed a line with someone of importance here.

Just for the record, I didn't block someone recently over the issue of gender. I blocked because he followed me around with, "what are you?... a man, woman, or an IT?" That was one of many things I got from a complete stranger on the internet. Instead of answering such a thing, I blocked him. So go ahead and scold me or remove my comment here. I won't care though. It's the internet.

So if this is all about us being strangers on the internet, that is fine. But it's not OK for some to act like complete morons while some of us get our hands slapped.

Very true and I agree with you. But like a lounge? You can always log out and come back later and not say a thing. I prefer this method. But yes, anyone can be triggered by certain things. I just try and remember that it's a website and not real life.

I don't ask for a lot of opinions about issues in my personal life because frankly, I don't really want to hear those opinions! No one on this site knows me as well as the people in my "real life" do, so to expect nothing but completely helpful and sensitive answers to a very specific personal issue is unrealistic. And that, in general, is not what I am here for. When I ask a question, I am fully prepared to hear a variety of answers and opinions, otherwise I wouldn't ask it in the first place. I can't ask for people's opinions then say I don't want them. This is an open forum where anyone is free to comment.

Of course there are going to be times when something catches me off-guard and I react before I think (and we are all guilty of that), but I try to remain level-headed as much of the time as possible.

Oh I totally agree. It doesn't happen often but there are some things that are said that trigger a tsunami of emotions for me that are hard to control. (sad)

Yesterday, I saw something that really pissed me off. Instead of wanting to call this person a jackwagon the word "****" came right across the screen. I sat back for a few minutes reading what I have just wrote then told myself "I am better than that". I then changed my comment and went to posting funny stuff.

I look at it this way, just because someone's wheels on their bus doesn't go completely around doesn't mean I have to stoop to the same level and show my ignorance.

I try to be respectful when it comes to giving making comments or posting. I know I once made someone mad over an OCD post. My intentions were to be funny not to upset anyone. I have OCD but I can honestly laugh bout it because some things I do are down right silly.
