MN is full of rude and opinionated people

I'm going to delete the app from my phone and try to forget about this poisonous forum for a while. It may do me good and I might even find the time to read a book for once.
Before I go I would like to say that I strongly despise all those posters who:
- hijack threads because they feel the need to open a debate over something you're not even asking about in your OP. e.g. If you ask advice on how to (not whether to) do cc. You just can't do that on MN because a whole army of harpies barge in to say you will fuck up your child if you do. Did I ask their opinion? I don't think so. But they won't go away.
- accuse me of being a shitty parent and tell me things like "shame on you" but expect me to take it all in my stride because I asked AIBU? Erm, no...I'm prepared to be told I'm being unreasonable not that my DS is going to grow up a fucked up teenager because I'm a shit mother!!!
Basically I've been depressed all day more than once because people are so shitty on this website. Other times I've sought advice and haven't managed to get any without people being judgey and digressing like on the cc topic.
Sure there are lovely people on here, but I feel there are far too many of you MNers who are just saddos who moan and don't complain and take out your frustrations by swearing at people on here.
Well I won't be one to take the swearing anymore.

Proud to be loud and opinionated and sometimes rude if called for.

you do need an exceptionally hard skin to persevere on this site but it's worth it if you can bring yourself to keep at it wink

i don't like the swearing much myself either if i am honest grin

I'm sorry you feel upset and low at the moment- maybe taking a break is for the best. Perhaps you'll come back when you're feeling stronger and can see more of the positives, because there are many.

Good luck and have a nice Christmas smile

Yes - people are rude and opinionated here. And very kind and loving and giving, and unselfish, generous and rude and opinionated. And funny, and thoughtful, and witty and humorous and plainly mad, and rude and opinionated. And wise - whatever you are thinking of - someone already did it. So when you are ungrateful for their advice, they come across as rude and opinionated.

I love it here me.

AIBU is not the place for a calm, non confrontational debate about cc hmm
