Right...'hate' is a word that can be used as bad as like..the worst cuss you could think of, therefore it should be starred out...

I totally agree. I LOVE this thread and HATE anyone who thinks otherwise!

BUT I learned my lesson from this WONDERFUL thread, and now:

I totally agree! In my opinion, this is a great thread. But some people might think differently.

Over time the english language changes. The meaning of Hate seems to have gone to: annoying, irritating, dislike. THe word love: like, enjoy, have great feelings for.
And yes, i do think people should be more kind the way they put things. thanks!

I have to agree with you, "hate" and "love" are strong words, and people can be very hurt or offended by them. I want to thank you for reminding WI about these very strong and hurtful words.
I also agree with Dixiecup, they should only be used when they are needed. I think these words are used in many bad ways, and that should be reduced. Thanks for making this great thread, I think it was very useful and informative information. I also want to give you a REP for the great thread!

Default Re: 'Hate' and 'Love' Are Such Strong Words...

You make an Excellent point!
I cannot stand it when i see these comments. I personally am not a big fan of either of them but I dont go around saying "I HATE THEM" because I know that would hurt A LOT of people's feelings. It is okay for every one to have their own opinion but people should try to be a little nicer about it. When I used to like the Jonas brothers and people would say "They are SOO STUPID!" That would hurt my feelings really bad. I really think you made a very good point and this is a great little reminder for every one to be a little bit nicer to all webkinz insider members about Twilight, the Jonas brothers, or any other group! Thankyou for making this thread because it makes a GREAT point! Continue to make great threads and spread the word!

I've been going around the Forum, and I've seen some people post things such as,

Or, "I LOVE TWILIGHT! If you don't LOVE Edward Cullen you're so stupid!!!!!! It's awesome and Edward is so HOT! Idk how anyone can not like him!!!!!"

There's a few things wrong with these 2 examples, right?

The 1st Example:
The excessive use of ???'s and exclamation points! It's okay to use like, one or two, but when you get to 5 6, 7 and more... it's just ridiculous and totally unnecessary! Second, it's really mean if you say "I HATE the Jonas Brothers! They are terrible singers and not even cute!" I know it would hurt my feelings!! (it even hurt my feelings just to type it!!) You can substitute HATE for something like this, "I'm not a big fan of the Jonas Brothers." and you can substitute "They are TERRIBLE singers and they're not even cute!!" for "They're just not my style of music, but it's awesome if you like them!" Now, let's see what my changes have made to this example, shall we?

"I'm not a big fan of the Jonas Brothers; they're just not my style of music, but it's awesome if you like them!" Hmm..which one sounds better? I think this one does.

The 2nd example:
It's very mean to the person who don't like Twilight or Edward because you're calling them "so stupid" because you don't like them and the other person does! Again, there's the excessive use of 's and exclamation points! Use a FEW, not a million!! We all have our opinions, and we can share them freely, but when it comes to this, please, please, PLEASE be nice! Let's change this example now to this:

"I think Twilight is the best! I think Edward Cullen is awesome, but it's completely fine if you think otherwise!"

Isn't that more reasonable?

I just want you all to think before you post, if you're going to hurt someone's feelings or not.

♥Lissy
I agree with the hate and the "if you don't love this your stupid" and such. Love is a strong word but....loving a book character (By the way Edward IS real!) or a movie is ok. Anyone disagree with me?

I agree completely
Hate should only be used when you are referring to something bad, like abuse. Love should only be used when referring to a person or animal, like your mom or dog.
