  • number 1:)
  • Ignore it :)
  • I ignore them. I come to help people and get help not to fight.
  • I would ignore them:-)
  • When people piss me off I typically ignore them but later on I murder them with my mind. I draw colorful pictures of me murdering them in most horrible and unimaginable ways. Fire, blood, knives, guns, shovels, saws, you name...I imagine it. It's quite therapeutic indeed.
  • I pick number one and if everyone else did we could co-exist pleasantly around here.
  • Probably a mixture of 1 & 2. Although it wouldn't really be a verbal fight. It would be more of a discussion.
  • I would make a petition... That will show them!
  • 5. Make my point as rationally as possible if I'm already mixed up in it, then back out and drop the issue. Under no circumstances would I allow myself to devolve into anti-social tactics. And if I DID slip, I'd apologize and move on. If it got offensive, I'd stop and let AB Staff handle it via flags. And then I'd leave the issue behind me. This site doesn't pay my bills or put food on my family's dinner table. It's not worth the heart ache. I have more respect for the rest of the community than to drag such behavior around with me. It wouldn't endear me with anybody, it wouldn't gather me any respect, and everybody would see me for a shallow person if I behaved that way.
  • Like I said before, I ignore them.
  • Option 1. Always.
  • I've done everything other than trying to get them kicked off. Although today, I am unsubscribing and asking them politely to leave me alone, but when they don't, (and not all do) I notify CL. I'm done defending myself, so if they get in trouble, they only have their selves to blame.
  • Now I would ignore them, but when I first joined AB, someone pissed me off large, and I got into a verbal fight with her. It only upset me more, and even though others came to my defence, she still hurt me deeply. Never again! I still get pissed off when I think of the things she said to me! GRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!
  • 1) Ignore them Didn't work. 2) Pick a verbal fight with them Also, didn't work. Both of us were even sent to the Penalty Box. Don't try this at home ;) 3) try to reason with them Again, didn't work. When someone hates you, they won't listen to reason. 4) try to get them kicked off Yes. This was what I did. It worked.
  • I think I would just ignore them after asking them to please leave me alone and trying to clear things up. I'd never try to get them kicked off. If they are bad enough it will happen to them eventually.
  • If someone really pissed me off, I would probably do everything but 1 and 3. As long as it was completely irrational and based in emotion...
  • For me it would be something else. Something like the unsubscribe button.
  • If I thought that the offending behavior was reportable I'd flag it and ignore the annoyer.
  • Ignore them. Never wrestle with a pig. You get dirty, and besides, the pig likes it
  • I call them out. So far there's only one thing that pisses me off and I just call them out on it.
  • I would get over myself.
  • My experience has generally been that I don't get P*ssed off. I get an answer that makes me squirm, I give my six points and move on. I sense a level of hostility - I usually try to cool it down because I've never gone out looking for it. I've misread things a few times and jumped to a reaction, but I've gone back and apologized because I don't want to pick verbal fights. Conflict makes me kind of queasy, admittedly. I don't want to campaign against other users or participate like that. If we can't have positive -- or at least neutral -- experiences with other AB'ers, the entire experience loses its fun and enjoyment. So yeah, when I do see stuff that bothers me, even when it's not on Answerbag, I completely leave it alone. Participating in it is a waste of time and energy. A really cool guy told me that "fighting with an idiot only makes two idiots"... another friend has told me that "it's only relevant if you make it relevant." Negativity can be a flash in the pan if you don't look for it and you don't dote on it. The something else is going back to your friends for what really counts: love, respect, support, and hugs.
  • This has happened, and I usually finish the conversation or whatever in the string, when over will then resume as normal. If I run into them again, will treat it as a new day and a new chance. Some who have p-ssed (as you say) me off in the past are now my regular idea exchangers and favorites to deal with.
  • I don't really get "pissed off" on here, but on the occasions that something such as that may occur, I make my point and continue to debate, being as mature and constructive as I can no matter how the other person is acting, though I can't help but to point out extremely weak debating elements that some people bring up, like start name calling or getting off subject to try and save face, or throw strawman arguments because they don't know what else to say about their point. I have to point it out, even though it's kinda bitchy. If they're obviously and blatantly being offensive though and don't even try to cope, I just ignore them. But I also remind myself that people are people, and while just about every answer I see on here suggests that everyone is always in the right and not in the wrong and that everyone else always is, I admit that I can be on the wrong and dumbass side sometimes. It's subjective to each, minus the evident flaming that is direct and defined enough that I shouldn't have to include it in my example, in short, everyone's a terrorist to everyone else, so to speak. I try not to, but sometimes you don't notice it, since you're so stuck in your conviction, and every time the person counters with something decent, you merely attribute it to them being an ass; which isn't always the case. So I have to stop and think better, therefore, option 3. It's happened often but I think I've admitted my wrongs more than enough when I was aware of them.
  • I would try and make my point, and if they kept on and on and on........then i would just drop it. No need to get kicked off, I enjoy this site very much~!~☺ Besides, some people enjoy arguing on here, so i won't give them the joy!
  • I start with reason but if I see that the person doesn't operate on that level or is dragging me into a "vortex of drama" I quickly make my exit and practice Yarnlady's very wonderful Power of Ignore;)
  • Ignore is my policy, although sometimes it is hard. If their behavior is bad enough, they will get themselves kicked off, so I don't need to act on that.
  • #3 I don't like people mad at me and always try a peaceful resolution. If that doesn't work, I just walk away.
  • Run to my friends and they make me feel 100% better - you guys are the best :)
  • 1)Ignore them much of the time 3)Tryed to reason a few times 5)Told them I would NOT argue and *unsubscribed* about one time There's only been a few times on a comment thread that I've had to do any of the above. A few times, I've received disrespectful answers. I figure if I ask questions, that's going to happen from time to time. I ignore them.
  • Ignore them I mean really people grade school was a while ago for most of us
  • I unsubscribe from the thread and move on
  • Make a big fuss about it all over AB and create all kinds of drama. Yeah, that will resolve the issue! NOT! 1 works well, although I usually try 3 before I decide to go with option 1.
  • Depends what they said. If I need to defend my answer or question I will do so but if they just offend me with their question/answer and it was nothing attacking me personally I would ignore them.
  • ignor them. Firstly you can't argue with circular logic...it's illogical and you end up wasting your time and becoming frustrated. Secondly trying to get someone kicked off is usually more effort than I am willing to waste on some jerk..plus it could backfire and their backpatting buddies all come to their aid and then you have a whole slew of idiots to deal with DR'ing you and such, and picking a verbal fight only means you have to lower yourself to their level and again you end up in another circular logic based conversation. Best way to deal with them is ignore them, they can't stand when you don't give them any attention.
  • 1 3 2 1 3 3 1 LOL
  • Try to reason with them first, then ignore. Something else? I mock them.
