EdenFantasys Poll / Discussion Responses

Tangerine Tangerine
I am fairly new to Eden Fantasy and I seem to get the idea that the polls and discussions that are posted are to get the opinion of the the person responding.

Does it seem as if some of the responses come off strong and/or very fact and know it all?

I am not trying to offend anyone but I wonder why some of the responders tend to respond as if they are stating facts rather than opinions. I do understand that some posters request facts but some are "just asking"

Some people are asshats who think they know everything. Also, some people may not realize that what they're saying comes across like they're stating a fact when it's a matter of opinion. I think it's mostly the second one, but I've seen some posts here and there that feel more like the first one. Although it's hard to tell because of that whole no tone of voice on the Internet thing.

Exactly what Sam said. I try to give people the benefit of the doubt, since you really can't tell tone or intent online. But then again, there are people who think they know everything and that everything they think is right. I tend to skip over those posts and just keep on readin'!

This is a problem in a lot of life, I think... I know I'm guilty of it occasionally, even out loud---but it's the "not realizing that I'm coming across as stating fact," rather than the "being an asshat"... I just assume that people understand that, if I say something, it's just my own opinion and they are totally free to disregard it or believe the opposite.

Hope I haven't offended anyone! And---it's the internet, let's give everybody the most charitable interpretation, and know that most people are just offering opinions, and don't expect you to take them to heart unless you happen to think their opinion makes sense.

Unless they do it often, I feel like they don't mean to! I sometimes say things that come out wrong because, as has been stated, the internet has no subtext. Other times people post in a bad mood, so unless it looks to be offensive on purpose I'd just let it be water off of a ducks back!

Welcome to Eden, by the way

I'm totally NOT an asshat!

Other than that, I agree with Sam.

Welcome to Eden!

I think Sam is right. I notice that most people posting online ANYTHING tend to state things in a tone of fact, rather than opinion, whether they mean to be asshats or not. I give people the benefit of the doubt if they aren't directly attacking a different opinion. Conscientious people are are careful to note that their statements are simply what they think, rather than fact, or have a tendency to express an appreciation for and interest in differing opinions, and I think that would be an awesome trend to see in general.

There are always know-it-all's everywhere you go, whether its on Eden, on Facebook, or generally in life. Ignore people who waste your patience with know-it-all attitudes, and appreciate people who care about contributing to a discussion, rather than having the final word.

On that note, discuss on!

Thank you all for your feedback and a special thanks to Sam for using the word "asshats" that totally cracked me up and made my day. I laughed even more when I read in the other comments.

Ha! I remember seeing something like that a while back, but I can't remember where. Although I'm not 100% sure that that wasn't also sarcasm, lol.
