I welcome it. I wouldnt be out in public if i didnt want an open discussion.
So while in an earnest convo...someone interrupts to say your all wrong...actually mad.
Nope. I dont have to respond at the time...or at all.
But you will.
That is true..but if you are having an earnest conversation with someone...do you like it? Especially if they say something like: you are full of shit.
Sukie...tiffanee and i get told we are full of shit, several times a week:[
So do many others. I tell people they are full of shit, several times a week:[
I just butted in!
I'm afraid to reply for fear of butting in. lol
I never see those conversations. Show me one.
Hi Oz, how have you been?
Everything is great....
Find any political post that i make a comment on. "Full of shit" in so many words.
There is a certain woman that will find a way to jump and tell me i am an ill informed, pussy hat wearing, ignorant liberal. And a particular guy that wished me dead. (That was a while ago).
It's alright. It is an opinion site after all.
That is bad. That is more than an opinion. Especially wishing you dead.
No one can harm us online, sukie.
That is true. But then why does it bother you so much that you d/a twice?
You have no idea why i d/aed.
And it's been three times. None of them was due to me being hurt in any way.
I was under the impression that you d/a'd because you were hurt on here. People were picking on you? Serious.
Picking on me?
Come on, i'd quit everyday if i was that delicate.
That was the word on the street... This is also why people scorned the "strong women" tag...since you kept running away.
I'm glad you clarified this.
What if it's a semi-serious convo? Do you mind people interrupting and saying: Marky...you are wrong.
No one 'fights' online. But it can be a more serious conversation than others.
So that's your opinion, then? What do you do if someone interrupts to tell you what an asshole you are.
Wait and see.
I hear there are a few cows in our midst... Boo.
Damnit. I thought I sent them all back to the barn. Cowbas...cowbas!
There was a cow
or say an ox
that mooed incessantly
I think you left
the tv set
So they have to be respectful.
How is that...give me an example of a respectful interruption for someone to interrupt...to say that you are wrong.
No one ever sez that.
You've butted in on my conversations and you've never put it that way.
Okay...so Platinum is gone...now we have JD. Does he come with a new AV? Ser can cruise online and come up with a new one that is also just as sexy.
I don't usually mind, but there have been exceptions. I do not, however, think people who "interrupt" a discussion I'm having with someone else on a site like this are breaking any internet etiquette "protocol".
Depending on the situation it can be rude.
Of course it can, depending on what is said and the interpretation of those reading it.
And I thought being rude online was a no-no.
There can still be courteous protocol to use. Jumping in and defending one person is all very well...but don't act all hurt when someone calls you on it. I'm not sayin you.
Sometimes a person can get drawn into a serious convo in forum by accident.
Being online we all follow some decorum. If you interrupt a serious one-on-one conversation...do it at your own peril.
It can just snowball hypnotically so you don't think - or get a chance - to take it to PM. Hard to believe you haven't experienced that.
Um...but we ALL have to follow Amirite's rules of Internet Etiquette. And that works for me.
And I'm pretty certain that Amirite frowns on ganging up on someone.
Now where did that "original" comment come from...?
Your comment was not original...just sayin. And I don't have a problem with that...
Yes...but people always say stuff like that when they are trying to defend themselves.
That was a complete change of topic...and this is what happens when ppl are trying to defend themselves. Especially trying to poke at the defendant.
A heated debate with other points of view are always welcomed...but not when 2 people are ganging up on one person.
