Why does it seem comments are so rude lately?

I have been a part of PT since October and I just find it sad that so many people when they make a comment to a post show such venom in their words to the poster. Why is it that so many posts lately sound so hateful and cruel?

I agree. I come on this page to get support and ideas from my fellow PTers, and it seems like every thread has some kind of negativity in it. There's not a lot we can do about it, unfortunately. If I see a thread with a lot of negative talk, I just move on.

ehh, it comes and it goes. and i know how you feel. i used to get so frustrated by that, but now, i just try to counter it with positivity. if no one responds to the rudeness, it usually fizzles out. good luck with your goals! :)

I agree with 2:33. So long as I do not do my part to perpetuate it and respond to rudenss with more rudeness, you can see that it's just a few individuals. Best way to respond is to respond to the OP with constructive comments.

I agree - it is sad when people have so much venom in their hearts. You know it's poisoning their mental outlook overall. Just keep rising above it.

Oh I think it's entertaining to read the "fights"!!

Everyone is different, comes from different backgrounds and belief systems and yet angry posters still try to argue and think everyone will see their point. While I don't comment, I usually read them and smirk to myself that some get so worked up over comments posted on a website!

I also think it is so funny that the rudest most unhappy sounding people are the same ones that demand we be tolerant of other peoples views. We of course are completely wrong and they are completely right and we have to be tolerant. And heaven forbid you say something about God. Stand back and watch the fur fly! Just laugh and have a great day.

Ya know what that is the dumbest thing I've seen posted...Oh just kidding, a little humor here! You are right we should just support each other, if enough of us do not respond to the negativity then there will be no fuel to keep it going. Thanks for addressing this topic!

Rude

You know it is true. I think if you enter a thread because you think it might be interesting please read on. If you don't have anything constructive to say and just want to have big "I am so great and you should all be like me" moment save it for your bathroom mirror. It is just so easy to play holier then though in an anonymous forum. I have read people calling names and belittling others. I think people who behave that way feel so badly about themselves that the only way they can feel better is to make others miserable. I also think that if you are the OP you should be able to delete the comments of jerks so every one can stay on topic.

while i agree with some of what you said that some people put in negative messages to get other people worked up, I also know that I have had people say I have been rude because I do not sugar coat things and stroke egos. That doesn't make me rude, it makes me a realist. sometimes tough love works. When stroking ego's doesn't work, then telling it like it is may get through to others.

I also believe people should not be attacked for being different and working through their own thoughts. Calling posters names like Moron and a**hole isn't positive--and yet those same posters are calling them names for not being positive....i don't get it...

Your nasty fingerprints are all over peer trainer. I know you have appeared in MANY threads and I can honestly say you have some hostility issues. You have been and continue to be rude.
Do you feel empowered by being beligerant and condescending towards others when they turn to peer trainer.

The name-calling cracks me up. I'm often on the receiving end - sometimes I can't even figure out why. I just figure someone doesn't like what I said but lacks the intelligence to articulate why.

2:53 this is for you

Thank you for proving my point! That's exactly what i was looking for. I give a nice polite thought about how we're all different and i agreed with you on some issues, but not all--and that's ok. Then you turn around and are hostile to me and call me beligerant. Do you realize how you sound to others? Do you realize you are accusing me of doing exactly what you just did? You just proved the OP's point and mine.

The point that I was making was that there are many things that you say on other threads that many others have considered very offensive and very rude and would be described as beligerant.
I am not calling you names, I am trying to explain that what you have said isn't just " tough love" it is very hurtful, so maybe in the future consider the content and delivery before you hit the post button - there is usually an emotionally vulnerable person on the receiving end of your tirade.

don't presume to know me or what i've said through pt at all. now you're blaming me for everything hateful on pt. what a shame. but if you need just one person to blame for everyone else's action, i'll take the heat because i know it's coming from someone who isn't seeing this conversation from both sides.

you've assumed i have hostility issues, you called me beligerant and condescending. how is that not calling me names? how are you not doing everything you are griping at me for others doing? you don't know me.

Unfortunatly for you, your manner in writing is what gives you away.
So no, I am not blaming you for all the nasty posts, but I can tell you have been at the other end of many arguments. You have a tendancy to provoke people into enaging, and are usually demeaning in your comments.
So as much as anononimity works for you , it doesn't.

I am not blaming you for ALL the nasty comments, only for the ones that YOU make.

4:13, I'm not the person you're arguing with...
But "belligerent" and "condescending" are very specific adjectives (that come across as accurate, by the way) and quite different from "idiot" and "moron", which are just nasty childish names for people you don't like.

again, it wasn't me who said that. you shouldn't make assumptions because it makes an ass out of you and umption.

I will, however, apologize for using the word "ego" in a different thread than someone else. i didn't realize using the word would bond me to someone else on PT. if you find that person, please let me know so I can send a formal apology for using their copywrited word. i thought words in the dictionary were public, kind of like PT.

good morning everyone.

i am the one who's been blamed for every mean person in the history of PT and just wanted to check in and say "thank you" and "you're welcome".

thank you for the support and you're welcome for the laughs!

To quote the famous Rodney King (and I'm sure that was my fault, too): can't we all just get along! if someone gives an opinion and you don't agree with them, don't attack them and don't call them names. everyone has different opinions and that's what makes us unique. Debates are to be had, but not when you fight dirty.

I hope everyone has a healthy day!

And .. it is not all the nasty comments on PT just the ones that you make, and we both know which ones they are.
Are you familiar with accountability?

And .. as a pp mentioned beligerant and condescending are adjectives which can be used to describe soemones behaviour and have nothing to do with name calling.

I don't think the majority of posters mean to be rude or nasty. It is very difficult to get a tone or emotion across in writing. That is why some writers are good and some writers are GREAT! Sometimes when I feel strongly about a topic I can only address via e-mails, I re-read them for content and tone. Most of the time I end up editing so as to not come off harsh. A lot of people don't do that they just type and post.
Now for the people who just want to stir the pot. Well, there is a name for that type of poster. They are called Trolls. They are best ignored.

emationally vulnerable

Not to belitle anyone, but I'd have to agree that there are some emotionally vulnerable people on here. I've chatted with people who cry for days or who intentally hurt themselves. Unfortunately I'm not a professional, so I usually just urge them to talk to someone. Just something to keep in mind.

I agree with a previous poster - I wish everyone loses some weight today.

I think a lot of the rude people have already alienated everyone they can speak to face to face, are suffering from inferiority complex or have domineering spouses or partners. So they come on here to throw their weight around (no pun intended) and to make themselves feel like they are still relevant. Sad really. Just like the boy in third grade who pulled your pigtails, or the girl who kicked you and ran, they don't dislike you, they just want your attention. So, don't give it to them and they will run off and hide under their perspective bridges.

First of all it was not funny and positive, in fact nothing you say is funny or positive, just downright rude.

That's the thing. Not everyone shares the same sense of humor. Not everyone is funny. However it is hard to get intention across in the typed word. That is why some writers are great and some writers suck.

I absolutely agree. I would never use those words in a business or professional environment. But, when you are just goofing around and hanging out, it doesn't hurt to have a little fun with the lingo.

I have to say that in all my time at peertrainer, I have never ever seen what I will say is the most vile, insensitive comment as I did today. It was one thing to banter, it is another to be so callous and insensitive of such an emotional issue.
It was one thing not to sugarcoat it and tell it like it is, but this goes beyond cruel and sick !!

Oh Yeah!
That was pretty bad. I don't think they were wishing cancer on anybody. I just think the delivery was bad. REALLY BAD! Don't people proof read for tone?

They weren't wishing them cancer, they were just pointing out that high consumption of soy products can lead to breast cancer, according to scientific research. it was a warning, that there are risks to the product.

I KNOW they were not wishing cancer onto anyone, but the way it was phrased was disgustingly tactless.

Furthermore, the person is implying that if you eat soy products, you are bringing it on yourself to get cancer. How awful is that, what about the woman who eats very healthy, exercises, takes care of herself to do the right things for her and her family, and she gets breast cancer and DIES. Did she bring it on herself????

Do you realize that you all have turned into the rude posters that you started the thread about. Jumping on everyone for everything they say. Too funny, but sadly not.

I think people are so not used to being told they might be wrong about something or that someone else might have a diferent preference or opinion they automatically get all offended.
Maybe the opposite is true. Maybe they get put down so often that the only way they can feel any self worth or have their opinion heard is to type it at the folks here.
I think we can all be supportive without the name calling and fat bashing that goes on.

New: The PEERtrainer Cheat System
The PEERtrainer Cheat System is a new, simple to follow system for eating. The objective is to help guide you towards a way of eating that will make it easier to lose weight, give you more energy and help you feel better. It is free, easy to follow, and a little unusual and controversial. Most of all it is working. This link will take you to a blog post where you can download a FREE copy of the Cheat System Diet Cookbook! The Cheat System has also been turned into a major book to be published May 6th, 2014. According to Srini Pillay, MD, Harvard Medical School: "It works in a real way with how human psychology works...I love that it relates closely to how the brain likes to function... without crazy effort and with significant short-term gains."
Here is a preview of the cover:
