Cranky people on threads

Why are there so many people on this website that are so negative, cranky and totally rude to others? This is supposed to be a site for motivation, health and fitness. Stop being so negative and stop putting down other people that don't have your view! Open your mind!

I've been a member since early July and I've definitey noticed, and have been shocked by, the blatent rudeness on this site. I used to post regularly on a different message board where we all had a certian breed of dog in common. I stopped visiting that site because of the extreme nastiness and negativity there too.

Unfortunately, I think it's a statement on the world today: People aren't very nice to eachother. Also, the fact that posts are completely anonymous (as opposed to showing our user name) encourages people to be a little more reckless with their comments.

Ignoring the ignorant is key.

to poster 1:25, not everyone on this board is here because of weight loss, some are here to track workouts and maintain.
So we can assume from your comments that only the dieting people are hateful?

i agree that the asumption is incorrect. i have not deprived myself of any foods i love. i sometimes bet a bit b*tchy when i read a comment that reeks of stupidity. i know it's just my opinion that makes me perceive the comment that way, that it is not a FACT that the comment is stupid, but i get rattled anyway. i try to keep myself in check, and sometimes feel like i am, only to read a response that asks "WTF?" about what i've shared. it's not intentional, just like in real life. i think people with strongly-held opinions who suddenly found an outlet to express them on topics ranging from foot odor to maintaining a weight-loss are excitied to just spout off. that's my story, anyway.
