Is it me?

Is it me, or do some people responding to the advice line questions enjoy bashing the the person with the question? It IS obvious that some people are throwing questions out there for less than advice type reasons. (which is not what the line is for, however it can be amusing) But, MAN! There are a few people who are constantly responding to questions with a negative, sarcastic, judgemental tone that burns my ass!! (for lack of a better phrase) Questioning questions, questioning motivations (as if true motivation can be detected on a computer - you can only assume sincerety), and degrading the daring questioner (who could be new to the whole thing and not understand what a serious thing the advice line is) is all crap that is just as useless as the guy wondering where all the women from Tibet are. Either give advice, make an interesting or amusing comment, or have a BIG CUP! Think before you say something that proves you're an asshole! You have to assume that 90% of the people are not attempting to have meaningful conversation. That is why we appreciate the 10%. Do what you gotta do and move on. Honesty is appreciated, but judging motive or content based on what you think you want to see or what you think they are trying to pull is ridiculous. (don't call people pathetic for asking a question) Finding people that want to communicate the way you want is the reward, but it is not a license to smear morons. Each of us can only use the wherewithall we have been given. You wouldn't blame a mentally challenged person for being born that way. Consider the resources from which most people have to draw, and consider yourself lucky to be on a higher plain. (is that true or do you just think it is?) (who decides?) Being nasty to idiots is a waste of energy. The negativity is a drain on the universe. It is like trying to explain quantum physics to a newborn. The guy that wanted a separate chat room for oldies but goodies? I wonder how you could enjoy an existance that is so foggy, but doesn't the comparison make you feel special? Get off the high horse and take people where they are. Ignorance is bliss. A&E weren't ashamed until they new they were naked. Don't be a dick! That's it for today's rant. BTW The best advice comment I have seen yet is "Have him call you cracker or honkey or casper.." J

"You may think I'm a little off center, but if you really knew me you'd run~!"

I know exactly how you feel! I used to love going to the Advice Lines...But, sometimes, the fighting between the responders is enough to drive me out. I used to be one of the top 4 responders. I have recently started trying to respond only to the questions that I can honestly help with. I do, however, occasionally see one that is so far over the top, that I get a little sassy in there. But, I have seen people being belittled, and that's one thing that I will never do!

Thanks for letting me rant and rave too!! Sometimes we need it! LOL
