I have very little patience for some things:

When someone posts on livejournal a public entry that asks for help or advice, they should expect resonses to it. They should not go and cuss at me when I respond with realistic advice that got told me at one point in time and helped out my situation that was rather similar. If they don't want public responses, they shouldn't make public posts. There is a setting called "friends-only" for specifically this. You can even go in and specify -which- friends by using the friends group editor.

Are there any questions on this part?


When someone posts on livejournal bitching about the exact scenario outlined above, and then specifically names me and bitches at me, despite the fact that the post that I responded to was A) public, and B) requesting advice.

Anything not clear about that part?


-X

(p.s. Yes, those are two open questions to the public. Feel free to respond. Anyone.)

It's done, get over it. All my posts are friends-only now, no need to dwell on it.

[Unknown LJ tag] put up a post that is now friends only that I responded to. She didn't like the response despite the fact that the post was asking for responses, and then other people took it and ran with it on their journals.

And yes, that was a real picture of her actually. I think she posted the original picture on her journal somewhere.

and it keeps happening with the same damn people too, seems as some just don't learn or know better. my guess is said people just like to draw attention to themselves cause thats the only attention they get, the negitive kind, now keep in mind I don't know who your talking about but it still applys to more than half the lj idiots out there.

i know it sucks to be spat on when youre only offering help, but here's a few things [not against you, i'm just hoping it helps you understand and not feel so upset]

youre right that if you post something public you should expect a public response, even from ppl you might not know, that's just how it happens sometimes. however, sometimes ppl don't want advice, but just to be heard. also, sometimes ppl don't want to hear things that are different from the way they imagine things to be...they don't want their bubble broken, kinda...so if you do that, sometimes they get upset.

still, you shouldna been cussed out if you didn't say anything mean. and all this is just generalized bc i don't know the situation or who youre talkin about, so i understand that none of this might apply to your particular situation. i post everything publicly just bc i think it's more interesting that way, and if i'm gonna tell one person, i might as well tell them all. i'll hear what anyone has to say, even if i don't agree, but i'll tell them if i don't agree. anyway, my whole point is just that i want you to feel better. *hugs*

In this case, I suppose what I said could have been construed as 'mean', even though it was just the plain truth. People don't often want to deal with the truth when they're busy being depressed and angsty. I usually don't give a shit if they want to deal with the truth or not and generall just slather them with it. *shrugs*

Thank you for wanting me to feel better. :) *hugs*

youre completely right. sometimes i'm one of those ppl youre talking about, although from the right ppl i don't mind hearing the truth and sometimes, even when hurtful, i enjoy it and it makes me feel better. i can only speak for myself.

and of course i want you to feel better, i love you bc youre wonderful
