if you don't have something nice to say...

...don't say anything at all. does any one think this adage is good advise on a site like this? i haven't come across a lot of evidence of this, but think it might be good to remember...

Isn't this why we're all here and we have a weight problem? because we were told not to say anything that was unpleasant and we "eat" our negativity?

To the OP Poster

I agree with you 100%. Some people on these posts seem to be completely unhappy and agree people. Seems they just want to bring everyone down to their level.

I meant -- the rude people that respond on here -- seem to be UNHAPPY AND ANGRY.

I agree with the 3:59 poster. I believe being honest is sometimes more useful than being nice.

i do not have a weight problem because of the reasons you suggested. i also was not told not to say anything unpleasant. i was taught, and have learned from experience, that one needn't be rude when providing support to others, even when that support may be constructive criticism. there seems to be a lot of hostility on some threads. maybe someone should start a "get your anger out here" thread for everyone to be nasty on purpose-as a release?

Haha! 4:09 poster, I love the idea! I wish we could post some really skinny, toned, bikini-clad girls (or guys, i guess) on that thread as well. Kind of like throwing darts at an ex-boyfriend's pic! :)

I'm sure you're "breastplant" question girl. I'm not nasty. I wish you would go away.
