Do you ever get hurt by people when you're online? Wouldn't it be easier to log off and go back to your real life?

Probably, but I have an over active sense of right and wrong; not to mention, I don't take being **** with too well.

Being ** with and being hurt are two different things to me. I don't take getting ** too well either. It usually ends up costing them.

True. I can't really say I've been "hurt" by something that happened online in quite a while. I think the last time was a faked death of someone I thought was my friend.

That might be something to get hurt about.

If I down vote you, will that hurt you?

No. In fact, we can downvote each other to show it really doesn't do shit.

Yes, that's the best cure of all. I don't remember ever being hurt but maddened sometimes. I just log off and do something else that I like! Like working on the game I bought the copyrights for to improve and modernize for Windows 10.

I find it difficult to be hurt by someone I've never met in person and who knows nothing about me.

I might get the urge to shake my head, but I can't say that I have ever been hurt. I understand that some people are more sensitive than others, but if the internet is hurting you, get the heck off and stay safe. JMHO

Agree, social media sites isn't a place for people that are very sensitive.

Synister, some people get very attached to on line personas, or they may not know any people in real world.

Well people shouldn't let that become the focus of their lives. Remember, there's a real world out there with people whom you could interact with face to face. Just saying.

Synister you are right, I think too many people lack real world contacts. so many have a big list of facebook buddies but never do they go out to dinner or for a walk with them, just talk on fb or texting. Gotta feel sorry for them right

It's all fun on here or other sites, but you do have to get back to reality of the real world and mingle.

Yeah I do feel sorry for some.

Sure but I imagine it's not quite as potent as the shit people pull in real life. Maybe the pain from it is a bit more manageable.

That's true, some real life incidents can be quite potent.

I remember there was a similar post here about people crying over online harassment, as if they can't get away from it by simply blocking, ignoring or turning off the device.

If those online people meant something to me, then yes I might be able to be hurt by them.... if they meant nothing, then it just annoys me, when they do/say something stupid.

Don't get close to people online, unless you are 100% sure.

Words can be very powerful and very dangerous they can be sharp and cut like a knife leaving wounds that sometimes only time can heal. It doesn't matter if they are verbal or written they still can make someone feel less than what they are, they can be hard to forget, and they can hurt like no other.

You are right, I could log off but the same things happen in real life just as they do online so for me there is really no difference. Its kinda like I am damned if I do and damned if I don't. The only good thing is that the online world has a block button.

I have always been a sensitive person but I have had to walk the flames of hell so many times to get where I am at today so I can admit there are things said to me that hurt and are often hard to forget.

Great post btw

Agree, the real world isn't even close in comparison to online social media site.

The block button is the first step to peace and quite. If that doesn't work then log off.

At the end of the day, real life is what counts.

Thanks LP.
