What do you do when someone leaves a nasty reply to one or more of your entries?
Usually I delete them. I make it a point to be as nice as possible on 43t. Way nicer than I am in reality. 43t is my little bubble of encouragement and cheers and I don’t want anyone to ruin it.
Does it make a difference if the post is really personal compared to just an ordinary post?
Of course. Someone left me a snide comment on a drawing I post once. I felt a little disheartened. But I was still proud of my idea…so fuck em.
On the other hand, I posted a very personal and encouraging response to someone’s entry once, about a mutual problem that we shared. Someone responded to my response telling me to suck it up and quit being whiny for attention and maybe I’d be better off if I let my problems overcome me. It was so negative and so uncalled for…I was so offended and taken aback because I RARELY open up like I did…anyone who has ever read any of my entries can tell that…and some random person completely disregarded me. I felt embarrassed and hurt.
Have you ever not posted something because of how someone may reply to it?
Yes and no. I try to be extra encouraging on here since thats what this site is about. I try not to post anything negative unless it is totally called for.
Has there ever been an entry that someone else made that you just HAD to say something unpleasant to?
Probably. I can’t think of any off the top of my head, but I’m sure I have.
What do you do when you come across an entry that someone has wrote that you don’t like?
I ignore it, unless it really affects me. Then I say what I have to.
Lauraly, I LOVE reading your entries on 43t. I’m not subscribed to many people, and you’re one of them. I would hate to think that some jerk said something offensive that would keep you off of here.
A lot of us will really miss hearing from you.
Either way, I wish you the best and hope to run into you again, whether it’s here or on another site. :)
