Over the last two years that I have been a member of EF, I have seen a few conflicts arise between various members. I started thinking about the means in which they were handled by those involved and wondered if this was how they dealt with the conflicts that arise in their daily life--or if they handled things differently when dealing with the people face to face.
--What is your method for handling the conflicts on the site?
--How is it similar or different than in your daily life?
--What would you do differently?
Its the same. I try to stay cool and calm, but I will defend what I believe in and if I feel ganged up on the gloves come off. The only difference between eden and real life is I cannot punch anyone here.
I wish I didn't respond that way. And I am working on it. But last night especially there were some serious issues. I felt I had every right to share my opinion, however because it was so different from some very vocal members who are also COMPLETELY entitled to their opinion, I felt like I was being ganged up on. I was being bullied. I was called a dumbass, a cunt, a bitch, a fucking idiot/ moron. At that point I went crazier than I would have liked, but no one who said any of those things knows me. I got private hateful messages and many things were said publicly. If you were being treated that way, ask yourself if you could keep a level head. I didn't I regret stooping to that level, but it is the same way I would respond in real life, except things likely would have gotten physical.
