Just because it is polite to do.
And it doesn't sound quite so rude.

'Sorry,' is a powerful word, and doesn't always have to be for apologizing, but for basic politeness.

EDIT: If they want to be polite, let them. :]

But you do have a point, no one should apologize for stating their opinion nicely.
But, I say it just to be nice about it.

But, I do say sorry, I mean seriously, It's simpley manners.
xD I'm not really sure where my opinion lies ... you shouldn't have to apologize, of course not. Like bekah said, it just sounds more polite, but they shouldn't mind either way.
LOL, I like your attitude, but some people on here can be kind of sensitive ... never know how they'll feel.
Hi. What I've been seeing a lot is like..on those polls where people say "Do you like this outfit/shoes/backpack/profile/siggy/avvie/whatever?" A lot of the people who vote "No" post saying "sorry, i don't like it." why should you be sorry? I alway just say "I don't like it." The person shouldn't be offended by people not having the same taste as them. I don't get why some people are sorry for having their own opinions.
im gonna be frank
cause some people post threads that say that you should agree with the person so you dot hurt their feelings
People say its rude to disagree, so they are trying not to get yelled at. im tired of it, but some people agree
I would just say sorry so I dont come off as rude . But I would give my honest opinion to the poll or question !! I would say sorry because it sounds nicer & I wouldnt want to hurt someone's feelings . But we are all entitled to our own thoughts & opinions & we should not feel sorry for expressing them esecially when we are asked too !! Sometimes I come off as rude & I wouldnt want to offend anybody !! Thanks , Have a great day !!
I think it has to do with how you can take things typed over the internet differently than you can take in person. Saying "I don't like it" sounds more harsh online than "Sorry, but it's not my taste" or something like that. It would be different in person because then you have facial expressions and all that to interpret as well.
My opinion is, if you are unsure how someone's going to take it, then just don't post at all. Sometimes I totally disagree with someone's thread and I don't even bother posting. Why even come close to hurting someone's feelings? As far as the polls go, I'll try to find something about it I like and comment on that instead after I tell them something like "That wouldn't look good on me" or something like that. Something that would let them know what I thought, but in the most polite way I can phrase it.
Alright what if they've worked really hard on an outfit and you'd LOVE to be able to say you like it but you just can't quite manage to like it. Sure, you don't like it, but you want to adknowledge that they've put a lot of effort into it. That's when you say "sorry but I just don't like it."
If you care enough to open the thread, vote, and post, then you might care enough to add a 'sorry, but', and maybe even a little advice (eg, 'get rid of the blinking tennis shoes and it might work.')
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but there are some emotionally fragile or just plain sensitive people who be very upset about the comment; so I guess most people just try to play it safe by saying "sorry" or "no offense" or anything else similar.
I don't do the polls much, but I agree with you on this but disagree, as well.
You just say a simple, "I don't like it." But, others like to include their manners, and add a 'sorry' to it. Try and think of it like this-
Everyone's different, right? So, if you just met a person, and they said something to you, let's say, "Look at this shirt I picked out! Do you like it?"
And you just say no. It's someone you have never met before, so you have no idea how they're going to react to what you just said. They may take it as that you hate their taste and the clothing they wear. So, same with WI. There are people we don't know and we are never sure to how they'll handle a situation like this. At least try and include your manners, possibly.
But, I also see where you're getting at and I agree that people should not be sorry for expressing their oppinions but perhaps they could show them in a more polite way!
