After tonight I do anyway. I fucking hate it when such sensitive topics are tarnished by cunts. angry

I know AIBU and it's impossible but I feel that way.

Without more information it's hard to say whether YABU or not.

It's a PUBLIC forum, so whatever you saying you are gifting it all and they can comment how they wish... for good or ill.

But isn't that the point of a discussion forum. That things can be hotly discussed, and that it would be unrealistic to expect everyone to agree with you?

What do you mean by a "closed shop"? Only certain approved people are allowed to post? It is moderated (tho don't know how closely as I don't post/read regularly enough).

I know I was just spouting as so angry. It's a thread about a thread so don't want to say really but anyone who was on it will know.

I know it's PUBLIC.

Juniperdewdropofbrandy Wed 17-Apr-13 22:17:56

I mean no one else allowed in. Totally unattainable I know that.

It's not the agreeing. It's the trolls who constantly post crap and really insensitive stuff before being banned.

Impossible to stop them I was just moaning.

But you can't just have threads where everyone is only allowed to agree with OP and all the posters. As you say totally unattainable. It can be very hurtful though and some comments can take your breath away with their total lack of empathy.

No these are the Trolls who get deleted quick sharp. You can't unread it though.
Anyway I was spouting with anger tbh.

You are making no sense

hobnobsaremyfave Wed 17-Apr-13 22:39:15

Would it be rude to ask what the jeff you arebon about?

hobnobsaremyfave Wed 17-Apr-13 22:39:30

are on

Juniperdewdropofbrandy Wed 17-Apr-13 22:43:56

It was a child cancer thread - trolls came on taking the piss.

When I said 'you can't unread it' I mean once you read it it's in your head.

Anyway like I said won't happen but I was spouting as so angry at them.

StealthOfficialCrispTester Wed 17-Apr-13 22:46:44

I'm not so bothered that I can't unread it. But I am bothered that, now it's been deleted, the op may think it was worse than it was iyswim. It needed deleting and I reported it. But I'd hate for the op to be reading back and thinking " what did they say" when it was complete and utter shite and bore no relation to the actual posts.
I may have also sent a "you fuckwit" pm, I'd like to point out for the record if I am banned that this if the first and only time I've ever sent an unpleasant pm.

Missed the thread you're talking about, but have just read 2 pages of a thread that made me think exactly this.

TeWiSavesTheDay Wed 17-Apr-13 22:59:43

Yes. Absolutely feel like that some days - it's the trolls deliberately trying - not just to wind people up, but to really genuinely hurt them in the most personal way.


Juniperdewdropofbrandy Wed 17-Apr-13 23:32:21

Exactly Stealth. I reported them both too.

Anyway am off to bed now.

HeavenlyYoni Wed 17-Apr-13 23:45:28

Was it the one about baby Joseph?

Night all.

I didn't see the thread, Juniper, but I can imagine

Try not to let the inadequate cunts drag you down x

WTFisABooyhoo Thu 18-Apr-13 00:23:02

i didn't see the thread but i could tell what you meant from your first post. not sure why there was confusion.

as AF says. dont let them into your head. they are irrelevant. here to stir shit. no logic involved.

Juniperdewdropofbrandy Thu 18-Apr-13 08:36:16

Thanks I know I just think they're cowards.

Unfortunately, this is the nature of the internet. Many people are reasonable human beings but there are those who just LOVE the anonymity of it because it allows them to reveal their true selves. That which they keep hidden in real life because there would be consequences for them. of course there are those who are just as vile in real life but many more function reasonably out there but unleash the core of them behind the safety of a computer screen.

I have always felt that you see who someone truly is when you remove consequence (and also when you introduce alcohol, btw!)

It's quite scary to see behind the masks people wear.

Very true Hecsy.

At least with FB I can hide, delete or block.
