Ahhhh ….. common sense. The most uncommon thing in the world.

Then there are those who are attributed to having being rude...but are not. I think abitrarily jumping to conclusions on what someone meant without maybe a P.M. to them would suffice.

I know of some folks who have left ToTV because they were misunderstood with comments they've shared. Friends of mine, whose faces I know as well as their names. Some others would say they'd never have an account here due to the snarkiness. Now, I personally think ToTV is tame compared to some links I've seen online. Our whole culture seems to be less than polite and I wonder if it's due to technology or what the heck is going on.

Just an observation. Many complain about "snarky" or "mean" posts, but still return consistently. Makes one think that they might be afflicted with an addiction. On the other hand, one's disagreeing with another does not necessitate a derisive response. It can just be a disagreeing view. Perhaps some take a disagreeing view as being mean or bullying and take it personal because another does not share their same view?

Of course....the problem with social media is people hide their identity so they can be mean. For that reason I have stop almost all forums because people are just mean. It’s sad

go to " the villages friendly folks" facebook page. Snarky, rude, mean is not allowed and the people are deleted from the group if they do that. It is patrolled all the time by the administrator ( Angie Fox) and she takes no prisoners.

Well, do you want the truth are do you want politically correct responses. Seems to me people should be permitted to reply without fear of reprisal and in today's world to hear the truth, there should be some identity protection.

Some people deserve to be ignored. That is what I do to snarky.

We can always ignore the rude remark. Replying to a snarky or rude post&comment just makes it worse. Plus I thought there is an Admin in this blog, no? Btw, lovinganimals is not your real name, is it? Just kidding.. My username is my real name... :-) And yet it won’t stop me from making a rude comment if I want to.. It’s all about manners and etiquette.. -myk

Hi! No, lovinganimals is not my real name but I did post it in the comments after asked. I dont mind because I'm not on here to make rude comments, I actually like people lol! I just hate to read innocent posts that are twisted to make the OP sound dumb or ignorant. It's a shame

Yes I understand what you are saying but I'm talking about totally innocent posts. For example someone posted about a bobcat attacking a duck nest near her yard. And to that, some posts were made about the bobcat having a good lunch or whatever. This person obviously cares about nature and animals. That response was totally unnecessary. So it's not politics or opinions I am against, it's just people being unkind.

I have been an advocate for abolishing anonymous posts for years. It would seem that a majority of online posters don't have the courage of their convictions.
