Putting "no offense" at the end of a mean comment DOES NOT make it less offensive!!
Okay, this has REALLY been getting on my nerves lately...
ESPECIALLY in the "Head to the Pollz" section of the WI forum, I'll see a thread like this:
RandomPerson123: I was just wondering if any of you like the (insert Webkinz type here)! I really do, it's so cute!
And someone will reply saying:
MeanPerson123: yuck I hate it and it's stupid and ugly! No offense.
That really ticks me off, because putting "no offense" at the end of a rude comment does NOT make it less offensive! Now, I know what some of you will say. "It's just their opinion, you shouldn't be offended by it". Well, other people might. Like, sometimes I'll see topics like this:
RandomPerson123: this is my adorable pet! We rescued her off the streets and took good care of her and now she's the happiest cat in the world!
MeanPerson123: yuck that is one ugly cat. No offense.
So that could really offend someone or hurt their feelings!Especially the person posting the thread!! Now, I understand that, yes, it is your opinion. But, there are NICER things to say! Like, instead of:
MeanPerson123: ew! I hate that Webkinz!
You could post something like this:
NicePerson123: it's not really my thing, sorry. It's cool that you like it, though!
NicePerson123: I don't really like that Webkinz, but I think the (insert PSI or PSF here) is really cute!
See? Instantly nicer! And you didn't even have to type that much more! Or, if you just cannot say anything other than "ew! No!", then how about this. DON'T POST ANYTHING AT ALL. If you can't say anything nice, then don't say anything at all.
Sorry for the long topic, but that's really one of my pet peeves. If you managed to read this far, then thank you!
(Yeah, there are probably lots of threads before that have said this same thing, but I didn't see any when I looked at the first page of this section, so I just thought you all could use a refresher. )
