Hey! A good rule to live by is to treat others the same way you would like to be treated...or treat others even better!
But to do this, you have to truly be honest (some people will say, "Oh, I would not care if someone told me that _________(fill in the blank with a rude remark)"...but that is not being honest and sincere.
We all usually know when we've said something mean or careless...you just have to be a good person and apologize...because we all make mistakes and say rude things from time to time.
Another bit of advice ---- reread your posts BEFORE you hit "submit reply" and ask yourself honestly if you would feel good about someone writing those words to you or about you.
Name-calling and making fun of other people are just tactics to boost one's own ego... Because they are not able to respect themselves enough, you cannot expect them to respect anyone else. Or it's a cry for attention. Also, consider the largely juvenile audience here.
Those who act this way will have a rude awakening (no pun intended) because this type of behavior is not tolerated in the real world. If you are rude to people, you will only make enemies. If you show respect, willingness to listen, and have the ability to "agree to disagree", you will find yourself much further ahead in life. You may gain some instant gratification by putting someone down, but there will be very little willingness afterwards on the part of anyone to put up with you.
Bullying people might win you instant compliance, but it will not win you long-term committment. If you want mods, admins, and everyone else to look upon you with favor, kindness, honesty, and respect... you must offer these things in return.
You know it's not just on WI that this is happening. I have notice the consistant rudeness of others on MANY different websites. What is it with people lately? Has everyone forgotten their manners and the ability to treat others with respect?
Being an admin and/or a mod is not easy, I know I am on a couple of other sites. The site rules are there for good reasons, and the admins/mods are enforcing the rules to not only protect the site members but also to make the site run smoothly. So all you disrepectful people cut them some slack.
And as for the venomous PMing... well that can be considered a form of Cyber Bullying and should not be tollerated.
This site is supposed to be a fun place where people who love their webkinz can come together to share their thoughts, exchange info and possibly trade with one another. Don't let the actions of some ruin it for everyone else who ARE respectful and following the site rules.
shakesister, that is such good advice. Thanks for bringing that up too.
While everyone does make mistakes from time to time, we don't mean what we say. If I said, "I hate you!" or something like that when I'm mad, I don't really mean it. We all say things when we're mad that we don't mean. We can't take our words back, so we should think about what we say before we say it. And I've been noticing all these people calling mods and admins rude names and treating them with disrespect. All this rudeness has got to STOP!
