you want a piece of this??

i thought i'd start a thread where arguing is the point. what other threads are annoying you? why?

the diet pill threads are wicked bothersome to me!! this is a weight loss support site, not a drug-store inventory review panel!! pills are not the answer. how did people lose weight before the new wave of pills came out? no one lost weight successfully?

Yea, so, this so-called "new wave of pills" has been out for a while. Alli just came out but diet aides have been around for years and years. Lots of people have lost weight with them, myself included (14 pounds). Not to mention herbal appetite suppresants--

Diet Pills
I think that they can be useful to some, who need to lose maybe only 10lbs, and are already exercising and dieting and have been fo awhile and are not seeing results. They are not a quick fix miracle for someone who is very overweight, and think they don'y have to change their lifestyles.

As for other problem threads - where do I start
1. Anything that has a religious reference
2. Threads that encourage honesty and then bash people for being honest
3. The I am 15 years old and broke up with boyfriend and now my life is over sniff sniff poor me.
4.Threads that discriminate against people who do not subscribe to the general population' opinion.

i do not like the leg shaving thread. i do not shave and some people expressed extreme dislike for my personal grooming choice. and went on to comment about how dirty or lazy or messy i must be. i really don't like when people use degrading words or phrases towards another simply because they have different opinions. i often wonder if this is behavior that some people grew up with, so they emulate it? but then i remember that i experienced some pretty nasty exchanges in my home as a child, and i don't act that way.

Ugh- the "trash bag workout" thread- sure, you'll sweat out an extra pound or two. AND IT COMES BACK AS SOON AS YOU DRINK WATER!

I get so sick of people looking for quick solutions to their lack of self-control. Wanna lose weight? STOP EATING SO MUCH! Get off the sofa and EXERCISE!

"I want to lose 55 pounds in 2 months for my class reunion." Really? well, short of cutting off a leg, it ain't gonna happen. What, did the class reunion just sudennly spring up on you without warning? You couldn't have gotten up off your lazy @$$ 6 months ago?

"is there an all-natural way to lose weight?" Yep. it's called STOP STUFFING YOUR FACE YOU STUPID WALRUS!

Take some personal responsability! It's not your glands, it's not your big bones, it's you not having any self control.

"I can't go to the gym, people will laugh at me!" You narcissistic idiot. No one will look at you at the gym. They're too busy working out or looking at the hotties- if you're fat and don't want to be seen, the gym is the perfect place to go- you might as well be invisible, because no one is going to look at you.

O.K. deeeeeeep breath. rant over. Man, that felt good.

um, no...

well it's an interesting thread, in an observation kind of way... like "look at all the angry people who know a lot of bad words."
but no, don't want a piece, thanks.

Just a matter of time before the standard female tight-wad obligatory comment

I can't stand the comments made on threads from people that feel they need to express their "intellect" by commenting on fellow members' grammar, vernacular, punctuation and vocabulary. They completely ignore the thread's purpose and make ridiculous comments about how the text looks or how they don't want to be involved in the thread because they disaprove of the subject matter. If you "don't want a piece" then don't comment in the first place. No one wants to hear from you anyway. I just don't understand why they would partake in the first place. Maybe to get a rise out of others like myself? I think it reveals that uptight, Type-A personality that I just can't stand. It's terrible with all we as women deal with and the standards we hold one another to, the last place I would've ever imagined being insulted is on was this website. I've come to learn that outside my group interactions, the people on this website can definately be cruel and very unforgiving. Nit-picky perfectionist B*&^%$# drive me bananas. Yes. I am being insulting and negative, but this is the only thread I feel comfortable doing it in.

2:12 Perfectly said!!! Thanks for the laugh, I could feel how annoyed you were.

9:36 Apparently you misread what this thread was for, DUH. Just by commenting you did get a piece.
