    I am going to be harsh, but you need ot hear it. This is the internet, and you gotta take what it gives you with a grain of salt. They wouldn t say it to you in person, but they feel that behind a computer screen its ok.

    Take it with a grain of salt and laugh.

    People who bash others of their weight, age or height are not the brightest bulbs. Since they can't make a proper rebuttal to an argument, they go for the easiest target. Its best just to ignore them. There is no point to pay any attention to these people when there are much better guys on here that actually have an ounce of intelligence and common courtesy.

    Good for you. You always have great input, and I enjoy reading your posts.

    A personal attack is simply a lack of self esteem by the attacker.

    You definitely should NOT leave. You have as much right as anybody to be here. Disagreements and opposition are normal - and not bad. It is pretty easy to just avoid people we don't like and leave it at that. There is room for everybody!!!icon_biggrin.gif

    I've noticed one particular person who makes very personal attacks on others and I'm surprised he hasn't been banned. We're not in grade school, so it's unnecessary, internet or not. We are adults and should act like it.

    ^the funny thing is, it doesn't happen only on political/religious threads. One of the threads was a recent one about some guy displaying male nudes in his entire house. But, oddly, that one seems to have disappeared.

    I had one guy in the chat room say to me that I was ugly and that my mother was even uglier.

    I told him thank you, and reminded him that when he dies, only his fleas would mourn him. Shut him up quickly as I guess he was expecting to engage me in a war of words.

    Of course he had no profile photo.icon_rolleyes.gif

    Some people just have no class.

    If anything, gay men can be jerks, this should be a safe place for our community, but as with all groups, assholes are present.

    Ignore the haters.

    Yeah but responding to something like that didn't make you a better person. What if that same guy went and killed himself that night or went out and killed a bunch of fags because of that comment?

    cold saidWhat's the point of this thread?...
    Clearly personal attacks are bad. You saying 'I think they're bad' in an out-of-the-blue thread isn't going to stop things. I don't mean to be insensitive, but this thread just reads as a huffy woe is me whine to the internet void.


    What this does for me is wish the rest of my 20's away because I am so sick of being close in age to all these young-mindless-pricks.

    Recently, I have had a couple of the younger guys on here make personal attacks towards me regarding my age and my weight. It seems these guys took offense to something I said...and I'm fine with that. We all cannot always agree on certain topics. Fine, I get that.

    Man, you are obviously too old to... leave because of those people; too wise to let them get under your skin, and too kind to actually call them out by name here.

    I keep hearing of these attacks, and I suppose I must just not be on here enough. I trust both you (and the recently departed member I assume you are referring to). I accept that it really is happening; I just seem to not be involved in those threads. It has been said by others, and I will repeat it- don't worry much about people who resort to personal attacks. It is the 'net, and where I would hope that people would act with some degree of decency, I no longer expect it. People like those who you reference will actually get pleasure out of your response and it only encourages them to continue the attacks to get a rise out of you for their pleasure. I can't understand it; but I play by the "rules." Using ignore and not responding if you can imagine the pathetic excuse for a human being on the other end of the connection and feel some pity towards them is your best bet.

    I hope you can forgive my "dig" at your age above... it really was meant in jest. The one thing that holds true of any of our more mature members is that there is life experience that they unselfishly share with the younger guys. They provide some degree of guidance and support and while I may openly (and possibly) heatedly disagree with some view points, I do respect ALL of them for being here and appreciate that they may bring a view shaped by different events and times to the table. It truly is a major advantage to have guys from every background, generation, race and geographic location here to learn from.

    The people who make these attacks from the safety of the internet are cowards. They probably hate themselves most of all which is sad, but unfortunately no excuse. Maybe they are dealing with thier own crap - who knows?

    But what I DON'T get is why these guys feel the need (or the right) to direct personal attacks at me regarding my physical appearance just because they don't agree with something I have posted.
    I took a break from RJ for a couple of days, but came back today and revamped my profile. But more importantly, I have completely blocked the ones who find pleasure in making personal attacks.
    One thing I noticed when I came back today was that another guy that I had discussed this with, as he had also been a victim of these attacks, is gone.
    I will NOT leave!! I have friends here...friends I have had since I joined RJ. I
    am here for FRIENDS...nothing else!!
    I can handle an intelligent rebuttal, but is it really necessary to bash anyone because of their age, my weight...or anything else about their physical appearance??


    Just ignore them. They are losers who try to make others miserable because they are miserable themselves. They are too stupid to come up with a reply to your post so they get personal and make pussy-fied remarks about you. Personally, I think that if you cannot say something to somebody's face, you should not even be allowed to think it. Keep posting your opinions. If they do not see your POV, someone else will. I promise you. icon_biggrin.gif

    I have been attacked in real life based on my age, height, what I say and I have been attacked on here when the whole thread wasn't even about me icon_razz.gif

    But I don't care cuz I am happy with who I am, so no one really makes me that upset. Yeah, it sucks for a little but you get over it after you realize that you are proud of yourself. Also, I try to focus on the many positive things people say about me and remember that when people are insulting me

    U said it younger guys so they don't think before they speak or some of them. I figure guys that act like that r the insecure ones so they have to talk crap and make other people feel bad because they hate themselves.

    That was my thread!!! I love that this thread is about me! I think I do it because I don't have a job, friends and family that care about me, not dating anyone, and have no education.... oh wait, I do have all those. maybe I do it when I am provoked and realize there is no way a rational argument would work with that particular person... OR maybe I am just an asshole! *ding*ding*ding* we have a winner!

    don't feel too bad for him, he is as big of an asshole as I am. if you cant take the heat then stay out of the kitchen baby.
