    Oh you'll get this thread shut down for quoting the mods. That's a huge no no....you know sensitivity issues.

    And your feelings were hurt by it, so you had to post it and respond. So far your point is moot really.

    Everyone has emotional responses. Some more than others. You just want to judge people on the level of it.

    To be honest, I wouldn't care if they banned me. I come on here to BS with you guys but I wouldn't lose any sleep over it.

    I don't get hurt feelings. I've noticed a lot of posts here that seem overly sensitive all the time.

    Does this bother you?

    Have you considered exploring the psychology behind that?

    Could be a form of deflection, I'm thinking?

    Also, if you don't care what people think of you why did you make sure to ask people not to post their thoughts about you? Sometimes what we wonder about other people is actually more indicative of what *we're* thinking. A mirror, sort of.

    I do love psychology. Just a thought.

    It also might be worth exploring why you would see any snarkiness as hurt feelings, including when people are just randomly poking fun at a person who really is kind of acting like a jerk. It doesn't take hurt feelings to do this, at all. So once again, interestingly, your questions may just reveal more about your own inner workings than anything else. Again, just my thoughts. And no, I'm actually not being snotty there, :D I really do find psychology fascinating, but only if you peel away the layers rather than looking for surface answers or the obvious.

    Go into the message for older men lol

    Yes, I've been there, as you've seen. It was pretty much a you-know-what storm of obviously prior personality run-ins, barking at women even though it was men initially who protested the idea (to his credit, OP waited patiently for the inevitable - the opposite sex chiming in too), and other clickbait.

    White knights come to the aid of a popular forum personality = feelings hurt.

    White knights are sexy. ;)

    I can only sum it up by mean people exist! Do not feel bad, in the last week I had 3 mean spirited comments that I just felt sorry for them and smiled.

    3 in a week? Geez I got more than 3 on a phone call this afternoon and it was my mom wishing me a happy Mother's Day weekend.

    I don't know why this made me laugh so much.

    I had an ex who used to tell me if my feelings were hurt that it was my fault for choosing to feel that way. It's kinda true, but still confuses me to think about.
