Default Be Careful What you Say...

Lately I have been noticing a lot of members *unintentionally* being rude.
I am sure I have done it a couple of times, but when I see one that insults me, I get really hurt.
Here is a made-up example.

Member A: Today was my birthday! I ate at Outback Steakhouse and went to the mall. It was AMAZING!
Me: That sounds like what I would do! Outback has a really good Gluten-Free menu, so I eat there a lot. (I have Celiac Sprue)
Member B: Gluten? LOL! That is a funny word! xDDD And what the heck is Celiac? It sounds disgusting!

Member B would have insulted me, because gluten is something I have to take very seriously, and it really stresses me out having to read ingredients on everything, and talk to chefs, and call companies, so comments about Celiac really get me worked up.
Member B could have said: Gluten? I've never heard of it but it sounds cool when you say it! LOL! And can you tell me what Celiac is? I've never heard of it either.



So please think about what you post before you post it, and see if you can't make it a tad nicer.

I know! I won't say who but somebody said on one poll, "that is ugly and boring, why are you using that as your avatar couldn't u find something better? haha sorry but i had to laugh i hate it no offence" or something like that. "No offense" and, "Sorry" doesn't make up for THAT! I would've red flagged it but the owner of the poll had told them they would give them a warning to be nice..

I understand. Happened to me once but the person thought I was rude to them...I called them weird because they liked the Saints.

And Celiac is a sensitivity to gluten, found in things like wheat, barley, oats, rye, and malt.

As said above, even if you suspect a tiny bit of rudeness, flag it for a mod to take a look at. They will make a final decision on whether to edit or not. Threads have been made before on this topic.
