    i do see it from time to time and it's not pretty. It makes me uncomfortable. However i also believe some are too sensitive. What really winds me up is people giving out wrong information as facts, and people believing them. The truth is we are all different and you have to work out what works for you... x

    Just curious OP what do you consider bashing then? I don't see too much of it tbh and im on the forum quite a bit. A lot of joking,and sarcasm xD but not a ton of bashing.
    Sadly, I think this is when folks really get butthurt: they miss the sarcasm and humor. Folks are making light of a situation or topic, but not the poster. I don't know about anyone else, but humor is what gets me through life.

    I so agree! I posted a topic for the first time yesterday which I thought was fun but had some bashing also. My intent was never to pass judgment, however, I was sure judged!

    Just popping in to see if the usual trolls attacked this thread yet.... :huh:

    Yep, I see some familiar names.



    OP, I agree with you, for the most part. :flowerforyou:

    The only troll I've seen here so far is GasMaster....and I hope he never stops. That thread about stalking his wife was the funniest thing I've seen in a long time.

    people on MFP are jerks.

    they're cranky because they're hungry from calorie restriction, sore from working out, tired from the combination of the two. they haven't had a bite of real cheesecake/pizza/snickers bar in too long. they haven't gotten laid. they've had to smell raunchy bo, protein shake farts, and overpowering perfume at the gym all day and they have a headache. they've quit smoking, cut back on the caffiene, and eliminated soda from their diets. and on top of that, they probably have secret low self esteem, which brought them to this torturous lifestyle in the first place.

    so they take out all their misery on others on the forums. it makes them feel better about themselves.

    once you understand this, the forums are quite fun.

    if you're a troll

    LMAO... this!

    Wherever there are forums, there will always be trolls. There will always be people who get off on being nasty.

    The quicker you accept that the better I think. I do agree with you OP, but I can't see anyone reading this thread and then deciding to be nice from now on.

    Isn't there a phrase that most of us heard when we were little, "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all".
    I never heard this growing up. It wasn't until I was an adult and heard another adult say this. I looked at her like she had a 3rd arm growing out of her forehead.

    You never watched Bambi?! This hurts my heart.

    If you can't say anything niiice......don't say nothin' at aaaallll. Maybe I watched it TOO much.
