Default No disagreements?

There was a thread that just got deleted. It was because the thread was about Miley and people wondered if she was a bad role model. A few people said yes and then one person said that everyone was mean.
Seriously, can NO ONE have different opnions on WI? Do we all have to love Twlight/JB/Miley? Is any thread saying that they aren't that great or that they are worried about them worng?
There have been other therads. Threads saying that Ganz will lose costumers because of certain things got closed. This is happening everywhere, and WI isn't diverse anymore. Meaness and debate and disagreements are two diffferent things.

Default Re: No disagreements?

I agree that it's okay to disagree, that should not be a problem, but if someone is going to argue about something and put down someone else's opinion, then it's not good. Certain threads though may not be appropriate topics for younger kids, and there may have been other reasons why that thread was closed besides what you saw. [rep]

I agree, everyone should be able to state their own opinion. But if it is in a rude way, that is a different story!

Please don't use all caps. It's against the rules. You may underline or bold for emphasis.

No, you don't have to love Twilight/JB/Miley. You can even disagree if you can do it nicely, as in "I'm not really into Twilight." Just don't say "I hate those books."

Are standard rule is that if you can't say something nice, don't say it at all. WI is diverse. If it wasn't and everybody liked the same things, we wouldn't need a rule about disagreeing nicely.

i dont think that voicing a difference of opinions is wrong.. however i do think that mabye some of the things that some WI users post may be misconstrued by some of the younger members... i dont think that that is a reason to close a thread but mabye there are other reasons for the thread being closed... who knows???

Default Re: No disagreements?

I agree to some degree.

IT seems that sometimes, people go too far with their disagreements. It's okay to say something like "I don't like twilight" but when you start saying stuff like "All the characters are dumb or Edward's a stalker and Bella's bland" that's when the threads get deleted. IT's fine if you say you don't like it but sometimes people just go to far and become mean. There is always a way to express your opinion nicely.

That's my opinion.

The thing is, you can say "I don't really like Twlight, it's too dark for me" you get attacked. "Twlight isn't dark! It's great! Why are peopel so mean? I['mg oing to quit WI!"

Sorry, I didn't think there ere many caps. I'll be more careful next time.

Which leads us back to "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all." Anything--books, singers, movies--that has fans means people feel strongly about it. If you don't like Twilight, skip the threads discussing it.

It is pointless to argue on the Internet about Miley or Twilight or anything like that. You won't convince the other side and they won't convince you. Focus on things that do interest you and don't waste your time on things that don't.

I know your talking about me


I am fine with stating opinions but when someone seriously attacks our feeling it does hurt.
