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!

I think the nasty ones have eliminated too much sugar and caffeine from their diets and just need a place to unleash their crankiness.

i think they like hiding behind their keyboards and thinking of stupid ways to respond. "haha! i know what i can say..." they get a little smirk off of it and then rush back to see if there is a response.
