Exclamation REMINDER: Control your anger!

A lot of the members here are mad at WI or Ganz for something, and they post it her. Of course no one know exactly how mad you are, so they way you put it into words says it all. Let's say Ganz put up that "Can't connect to Webkinz World" sign right when i was about to win a trophy. Of couse, I'll get angry, and post it here. But when you take away all the mad smileys, red text, multiple exclamation points, bold font, and capitalized text, it will look like this:

Aw man! Ganz got disconnected while I was on a roll playing Zingoz Pop! I feel very disappointed.

Doesn't sound that angry or frustrated! Just a little mad, not that much to explode. But most people turn this little sentence into something big, even though it's not nessacary to be that huge.

OMG!!! GANZ DISCONNECTED ME WHILE I WAS WINNING A GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I AM SOOOOOOOOOOOO MAD!!!!!!!!!! I COULD JUST RIP A PILLOW APART!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! UGH!!!!!!!!

What it means:

CAPITALS: yelling, screaming

Red Text: Danger!

Mad smileys Click the image to open in full size.: Much anger and hate


Typing your anger ( I COULD JUST RIP A PILLOW APART):"Stay away, I'm mean!"

Multiple !!!'s: Loudness, like capitals

Wow! Lot of emotion and anger there! No one wants to read a virtual tantrum!

Next time you feel like typing this, take a moment to chill, and think about a nicer way. Maybe take away the capital letters, most of the mad smileys, and inches of exclamation points. I'm not telling you it's against the rules to be angry, I'm saying tone it down a bit.

Aw! Ganz disconnected me while I was winning a game! I'm mad! Click the image to open in full size.

Much - oops! Still red! Much nicer! See?

Try to type it nicer and with less hatred! No need to overreact! That way WI will be a nicer place.

Please excuse my cheekiness, I am in a rather silly mood. It is not to make light of your post, just to illustrate how silly it looks, in reality.
I really do try to refrain from going off on a tear, but every now and again I just have to let it out...Once in a while I will use caps to emphasize a POINT, but never to scream my whole sentence out. It is rather pointless and it does make you look like you can't control your temper. Thank you for putting this thread up. It is a good thing to remind ourselves that those responses are going out to REAL people, not just a piece of paper or a bulletin board. Pitching an all out fit doesn't make Ganz move any faster, it just blows off steam for the time being and it really is unproductive...isn't it?

You have a good point, if I get angry then I take a deep breath and let it out. If I'm really angry, then I just walk away from the thing that is making me angry and come back later.

Great post! It's definitely good to remember not to get so angry about things. It's just a game, though I know it can be very frustrating when you're having fun and it quits on you. Rep point for you!

Don't apoligize! I am definatly not trying to single anyone out, even you! Putting stuff on all caps to emphisize something is absolutely fine, just make sure you don't use many !'s or use it in a bad manner! It's okay to let it out once in a while, just make sure it's not as 'loud" - AKA, tone it down.

Sometimes you need to emphize a feeling or get a point across so then it might be ok, but posts like that are never fun to read. By the way, I think it's be ok to say you were going to rip up a pillow, people'd laugh.
