That's actually my brother...who looks just like me. So I take offense to that.

Hahaha! Does he look like you in the face, or in the body?



The body? I wish! As I come back from the bathroom with whitestrips on to keep from eating all of the chocolate mud cake in the kitchen. All my good genes are in the eyebrows! They are the frame of the face, you know.

Jason,
I just want people to respectfully answer the questions being asked. Some people, including yourself, offer excellent, helpful advice. Some others do not. But sometimes I do see you defending people that are condescending and rude. I wish you'd stop doing that. Sometimes it feels like being ganged up on.

And this is what I assume the op was talking about. Just a simple opinion, why does it need to be debated to this extent. She explained pretty clearly why she feels the way she does. Sorry Jason she isn't going to be able to give you irrufutable proof ( and I don't really think she should be required to) it's a FEELING. Some people do not enjoy every discussion becoming a debate. People sometimes having differing oppinions and neither is wrong.

Which is worst:
1:
I am offended by a comment I received when asking a simple question, the comment was too honestly written, I feel scolded! Since other people agreed with this comment I feel bullied!
2:
The OP asked for an honest response, their cake was poor and so with my advice hopefully they will try harder next time. Now though, Im being called a bully and I keep receiving offensive PMs telling me to butt out of the forums! I was only trying to help!

Response to 1: OP's stop asking questions they could have researched in an hour and stop posting just to fish for possibly undeserved compliments.

Response to 2: Experienced cake makers stop replying to questions, their advice is no longer added, readers other than the OP now gain nothing, CC loses is devalued, questions stop coming.

I am just re-posting my post from another thread. Very appropriate here as well.

Wow, this whole thread is cracked. So I say to myself, "I'll join in!"

Bottom line-sticks and stones people! This is a forum on da internets. If you don't like what you hear then simply go to another thread. There is absolutely nothing on this board that is worth having a nervous breakdown over. If you want only the good self-serving advice, then please put a disclaimer in your post which states that you expect rainbows and unicorns to accompany the replies.

I am a tell it like it is person, but after working almost ten years in my "real" job, I have learned to carefully choose my words and say things politically. It's just part of who I am now.

So remember, sticks and stones. Do parents even teach that anymore? Or is that why we have so many boys walking around with tight pants, nail polish, and long hair? Hmm...

@AnnieCahill, what does this mean? Can't boys dress however they want and wear long hair, nail polish and tight pants if they want to? What does that have to do with anything?

sorry Annie, but yes I found that comment offensive too when you posted it in the first thread. I chose to ignore it, as it wasn't worth my time but I do wonder why you would find it appropriate. I happened to have a son who at 12 had longer hair than me and wore girls jeans. It was in style. He's now 21 and has a buzz cut and at 6'2" couldn't wear girls jeans if he wanted to. And no I did not teach my kids words can never hurt you. I taught them to treat other how they would want to be treated. I'm not one of the overly sensitive who want all responses sugar coated but I find no reason for outright rudeness.

Who has asked the OP to provide irrefutable proof? Irrefutable proof of what?

That is certainly true, and if someone does not enjoy participating in a discussion or a debate they usually stop participating. But one person not enjoying a debate shouldn't mean that no one else is allowed to participate either.

I am referring to the ever-growing group referred to as "emo". Overly emotional children who are being raised with thin skins. It's not as much the appearance as it is the attitude (in my experience, they usually go hand-in-hand). It's the self-centered generation who think that everyone is so interested in them and they want everyone to pine over them and their wonderfulness, and have their ego stroked 24/7. We all know that it doesn't work that way in the real world. You get criticized, bullied, and holy crap, you might just have to work and actually do a GOOD JOB to get accolades. It manifests itself in Twitter, Facebook, and everywhere else. This is just a generalization-I'm not singling anyone out. But I am seeing it more and more and it's just awful. I was a teenager not that long ago and I never acted the way I am seeing these kids act. It's quite scary.

It all comes back to the same thing. Have a thick skin, stop whining, and move along. I was bullied every. single. day. Every day of my life. Kids are jerks. But I had a family behind me who basically told me every day not to worry about it, etc.

Never in a million years would I have a breakdown or create another user name to cry about someone being rude to me on an internet forum.

What some consider rude, others consider the truth. Perception is everything.

If you guys think this topic was weird, check out this thread from Etsy yesterday. It was epic. http://www.etsy.com/teams/7722/business-topics/discuss/11078711/page/1
post #89 of 116
Holy wow! 39 pages! I also don't see how it was "discimination." LOLz.
post #90 of 116
Interesting Etsy thread, I read several pages and aside from the OP the rest of the posters seem to very pragmatic and logical. What's even more impressive is that Etsy's community is much larger, those 39 pages of posts were generated in less than 4 hours before a moderator locked the thread.
