'Rude comment rude comment rude comment...no offense!'
I mean, it DOES NOT make that post any less rude and offensive!
Another is when people will go around threads asking if you like something, whether it be a game, show, outfit, etc. and saying 'Thats stupid! blah blah blah' I mean, dont you think thats extremely rude? How would you feel if someone said that about something you loved? Chances are, not very good.
Really. If you have nothing nice to say, or think a post youre about to make may be slightly rude, just dont say it.
And then, theres the bragging. Thats pretty much self-explanatory though..
And people saying things of the nature 'Well people like me dont have anyone that doesnt looovvee me' 'Well people like me never get into fights' 'Well people like my never brag' 'Well everyone is jealous of people like me' I mean, if we're chatting with you, chances are, we'll notice things like that about you!
Just please dont do things like this!
RainbowSmiley(and others who are going/were going to say this) Just flagging the post and getting it deleted, sure its gone, but that doesnt mean that no one saw it, and took offense to it
You know, especially about your last part of the post, I will let you know this much. When you flag it, we can investigate. If it is rude it is deleted, yes, but that is NOT where it ends. The reason it gets flagged in the first place is because it is offensive. The second things that happens is the post-er gets a PM from me Or whichever Moderator/Administrator has to deal with it. They are told in NO uncertain terms that it is totally against the rules to be rude and it will not be tolerated.
Just a side note...Just because a person says 'no offense' doesn't take away the offensive nature of the post.
Flag it, it will be dealt with.

I have not noticed this, and IMHO if someone posts something rude, it's easy to just shrug it off, I mean you will never in your life know this person, so why should their opinion matter?

I have never really noticed that like, A LOT as you say. I know, I hate it too. This is a nice thread and a great reminder. But some things you can't handle. You don't want to get envolved so just flag the post. But it is very good to remind people like this NOT to fight. Just follow the rules. WI is a place to have fun. Be treated what you would want to be treated.

Flagging the post is the best way to get rid of the immediate problem, but I think Sparky's point is that it would be nice if people worked harder to make sure the problem doesn't occur in the first place. The "just kidding" and "no offense" line after a rude comment are really insincere and pointless. If you're "just kidding" than say something funny, not hurtful. And if you don't want to offend the person, than don't type anything offensive. Pretty simple really.

Luckily, I don't see this problem too much. Most people on WI are pretty nice. But I agree that sending a PM to the person and letting them know they hurt your feelings might help them understand what they are doing. Maybe some people just don't get it.

Where are you on WI when you get these comments?

I know when you're in Polls, Contests for Food, or just whenever you're asking for an honest opinion, you're basically asking for it. LOL! When people have to 'judge' between pictures that are on a thread, you're going to get "that outfit clashes" or much much worse. But that's all in fun, I think, which is why they might add a 'no offense' at the end.

But if they drop a 'no offense' after really carpet-bombing you, flag it. A mod can decide, and have a little one-on-one with them about their posting. They probably don't even know they're doing it. Things can come out poorly in writing, when really no offense was intended.

(I personally don't get or like the smiley because it gets used a lot in ways I think could come off as rude, although I'm sure the intention isn't necessarily rude. I guess people can be rolling their eyes at themselves, but it seems more like they think you're nitpicking them so they respond with a real sweet comment but toss in the eyeroll. It's a fun smiley when it's used properly, , like "Can you believe WW is down again? ")

Oreo, I would not suggest that. Leave that up to a moderator, that is what we are here for. If you start 'wagging your finger' at people, they may take offense to it and that can cause you no end of grief. Leave it to us, please.
tkprit, you have hit the nail on the head
Just because you are not really serious or are in a playful mood, the computer does not pick up on the 'tone' intended for the post. A well placed smiley can change the tone of thread very quickly.

The lines you mentioned are rarely seen. If you see it, flag it, and a Mod./Admin. will deal with it.

Do NOT go to their profile/wall and tell them what they did. It is rude also. Leave it for the Mods./Admins., since it is their JOB to do it.

Here's a tip I would suggest:

Only joke around with people who know how to take it and deal with it as joking.

I'm so glad you mentioned that some people can take offense to this smiley: . I never considered it to be "rolling your eyes" like somebody is doing something silly. I just considered it be thoughtful and sweet like it's daydreaming or something (LOL). I will be careful how I use it in the future. (Thanks for the tip! )
