Thumbs up Tolerance

I know that we all have freedom of speech, yes it is our right to say what we want. HOWEVER, with rights come responsibilities. We have the right to say things, but we also have the responsibility to make sure that what we say does not infringe on the rights of others.

There are so many negative comments about so many things. For example: the estore argument that rages on day after day some people like it some peole don't. Many of the people who like it are afraid to come out and say so because of the negativity towards the estore and those who shop there. Another example is the arguments about Twilight. I admit I had NO CLUE what Twilight was until I joined this forum, I had never heard of it. Yes there are a lot of Twilight fans here and yes people have the right to say they don't like it, but the Twilight fans also have the right to show their appreciation in avvies and siggies. I think that we should all try to remember that this is a friendly forum that is here for those of us wh love webkinz to gather together and share our virtual worlds with other who will understand and appreciate it. It is here as a place of fellowship for people to 'meet' and talk about similar interests, yes even those unrelated to webkinz (as long as it is in the open mike section). If it doesn't interest you move on to the next thread...

The fact that not everyone shares the exact same interests doesn't mean that the ones that are different from yours are wrong, just different. We all have the right to the forum, yet we all also have the RESPONSIBILITY to positively contribute and keep this a fun and friendly place for EVERYONE.

Thank you for this! People just need to learn to get along. Do you know how much nicer everything would be? Freedom of speech is a great thing to have, as long as you use it well. You have the right to say you don't like something, in a mature, kind, way. I hope that this thread makes some lightbulbs go off in some people's heads.

You are so RIGHT about this! Some people really need to know what's right what's wrong. With freedom of speech comes responsibility.

I mean we're lucky to have open mike. People should respect other's opinions. I found a thread about the Jonas brothers and people came on and said "I hate the jonas brothers. they are stupid" I think that's stupid. If you don't like something you don't have to go to that thread.

If it's an idea, politely say you don't like it. There's nothing wrong with that. It's HOW you say it. Here is an example. "I really don't like that idea there are so many things wrong with it and it's just horrible" That is VERY rude AND mean and can hurt someone's feelings. You don't need to go "all out" on how you don't like it.

Just say politely what needs work and find something you like about it! Maybe all it needs is some critiquing.

I think you deserve the rep that's comin at you! I hope moree people read this.

Default Re: Tolerance

You brought up a very good point. I think people should be more aware of what they say sometimes. Too many people are negative around here. If they don't have something nice to say, they shouldnt say it at all because it may hurt someone's feelings.

Yes it's very importanat that we respect other's opinions. I've seen many a thread (especially in the clubs) that say "I hate so-and-so!". That's really unnecessary and people should think before they type. It's actually got it's own term now- it's called nettiquite- or the way you should behave while on the interent. Tolerance is very important and mastering it will take you far in life.

Well, I'm going to say it. I like the estore. Sure, I wish the prices were a bit lower since I'm not getting an actual item...only a virtual one, but I have bought numerous items there (usually the pets, sometimes the items...if we really like them). I wish the maximum price on the items were $6 and on the pets $10. But, you don't always get what you wish.

Thanks for this thread.

I have no idea what Twilight is. A movie?

As you can tell from my avvie and siggie, I'm a Twilight fan. It's a fantastic (in my opinion) series of books by Stephenie Meyer about a girl and a vampire who fall in love, that will be released in theatres as a movie in 7 days, and that's what all the buzz is about!
