People who announce they’re leaving after a thread doesn’t go their way don’t really want to leave, they just want reassurance that they should stay. I never try to talk someone into staying. We’re adults and know what’s best for us.
Thats my feeling, too...
Depending on what the response are, the OP could either
"be persuaded" not to leave...
OR, could simply exit, then return in a few days under a new

@shortbreadlover, sorry you feel the need to leave (don't know over what post), but I know exactly how you feel. I come here to share life experiences, ask other's about theirs and I generally try to be light and kind - even when we disagree.
Sadly there are some on these boards who feel the need to dominate with their "assertive," unflinching "I'm right, put down" posts, and superior attitudes. For all of the kind posters those ugly, vicious few hit the "hurt" target and turn many away (especially new posters). I too have chilled considerably on these boards due to miserable women who don't share my view of lifting up sisters, but prefer to put us down. Once upon a time you could hit the "ignore" button and not have to deal wirh "ugly." Sadly, those days are gone.
Best wishes to you, LuLu
@LuLuBelle2 ...Thank you, I agree with you 100%.

@shortbreadlover @I wouldn’t get too upset about a few differences of opinion.You were happy knowing that everyone loved you for helping the older couple so you are batting 50.Cant be the hero all of the time...I think you are a kind and caring person and I am certain that you try to be so that is why your feelings are hurt.I take the negatives that I receive here as a learning experience about myself.Sometimes there are things brought to my attention that I wasn’t aware of and I think I could work on that or I am going to accept that about myself....I don’t beat myself up over it though as I never expect to be perfect but just a decent human being.
You are so insightful, @Whatnow.❤️ I try to react to the forums as you describe -- though I admit I do beat myself up about some of the things I've written, mistakes I've made. I've learned so much from fellow posters, and some of it insight into myself and improvements to make, and I'm grateful for that. Thanks for this post.

OP was treated with disrespect that was uncalled for. We will always disagree on topics, but some posts are almost hateful. People were jumping to all kinds of crazy conclusions about an incident that they did not witness or know anything about. Guess what? Some children are lazy and so are some adults. i am amazed at how immature some posters are and how they seem to enjoy bullying others.

@shortbreadlover .............Ultimately its your choice but every poster the snarkers chase off is another win for them. I know how some of those responses must have hurt you feelings.
Its said how freedom of speech and my opinion and Im entitled to it is used as a shield to be nasty and hateful to another person. There are ways to have a different opinion and write a statement about a subject without the spew of nastiness. But some would rather twist the freedom of speech and their opinions to suit their agendas.
I do not post on here to much anymore, mostly read the posts just to keep myself out of the snark tank.
If you set back and do a lot of reading it will slowly dawn on you just how negative a lot of posts and answers to a post are. I just shake my head and go on. However, that is not to say I dont have the urge to slap it to a poster every now and then, but I move on because I dont need or want any negativity in my life. And I will admit it is very hard sometimes.

After many years and thousands of posts here, I have learned two things:
1. Totally ignore the posts from people you know dislike you and anything you say.
2. Apologize if you posted something in haste and regret it. Also acknowledge that the subsequent negative responses had merit. We all make mistakes.

One thing I've noticed on these boards is that, as a thread gets longer and longer, posters tend to deviate from the original post......they often begin going in a different direction. I do try to keep the original post in mind when replying, but I too can find myself responding more to subsequent posts at times.
