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.
Well on public posts like this one, if someone wants to give an opinion it's their right and I'm fine with it, always happy to hear others opinions, even if they think I'm wrong and want to politely correct me. But on the rare occasion when someone interupts and is judgemental and angry without knowing all the discussion that has previously gone on.. well that's just annoying and they'll probably get a sarcastic or dismissive response.
Hi Oz, how have you been?
Hey I'm good thanks!, hope all is well with you :)
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.
Open forum means just that...open.
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.
I am simply saying if one truly desires a "one-on-one" convo, the place for that is in a PM. Open forum, by its very definition, invites others to join in. That is not an intrusion if the convo takes place in an open forum. It's just not.
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.
Aaaand they can take it to a private message, Sukie. There is no dictate that the conversation end where it began.
Um...nope...we do not all follow Sukie's Internet Etiquette. We just don't.
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.
"Snowball hypnotically"??? Wow. Nope, Sukie, it is the internet and no one is put on the spot, everyone decides when (or if) to reply. Moving a convo to PM is not rocket science.
Yep. Obviously it does not work for you, as you are constantly trying to enforce your own protcol upon us.
I'm pretty certain that cannot happen in PM.
You really need to get a fucking life, Sukie. Amirite is not the end-all/be-all of existence.
Now where did that "original" comment come from...?
Not sure what, or whose, game you are playing, Sukie...but you can count me out. All of my comments originate with me...if you have a problem with that, the problem lies within.
Your comment was not original...just sayin. And I don't have a problem with that...
My comment originated with me.
Yes...but people always say stuff like that when they are trying to defend themselves.
My response contained two distinct statements, Sukie.
You really need to get a fucking life, Sukie.
Amirite is not the end-all/be-all of existence.
Which is the one you are referring to? And how, precisely , is that, or either for that matter, perceived by you as me "trying to defend" anything?
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.
Noooo...it wasn't a "complete change if topic", and the questions (which you failed to answer) stand.
A heated debate with other points of view are always welcomed...but not when 2 people are ganging up on one person.
