There is one thing that I see on WI daily, and I think it's very rude and disrespectful.
When someone is posting their opinon, and you disagree, you should not be rude about it!
One way I have seen this happen is the big "No offense" that people seem to think makes everything happy to the original poster. There are some situations where this might be ok, but when we are dealing with another person and their opinon, then it is just plain rude.
Like for example, there is a thread on the coolest webkinz.
Usernamexxxxx thinks that the cheeky monkey is coolest, while usernamebbbbb thinks that the pug is cooler. Usernamebbbbbb would say "No offence, but I don't really like the cheeky monkey, I like the pug better." That would be a better way than "No offence, but I hate the cheeky monkey!! It's ugly, and the pug is way better!!"
I was just visiting a thread with a different topic, but it was a suggestion for WI, and someone just trashed the poster and then afterwards said "no offence" which I found was really rude, and if I was the thread started, I would be very very offended.
So basically, adding "no offence" does not make your post any less offensive.
I've seen this a lot myself and agree that just stating "no offense" does not excuse whatever rude comment comes before or after those words. My thoughts on the use of that statement are this, if you honestly think that what you are going to say might offend whoever you're about to say it to maybe you might want to rethink saying it at all.
yes I agree! REP for you! You can't just be all hateful and then say "no offense" when all your do IS OFFENDING that person and making them mad/sad/depressed even? please try to be understanding with each other BECAUSE we don't know others ages and personalities so really becareful what you say!
