My annoying thing that happened:
I tried voicing my opinions and questions on a controversial topic I didn’t know much about.
I think it may have sounded like I was trying to be mean or something, but this one person got so annoyed at me… I understood that I may have said something offensive, so I apologized.
But the person kept talking to me in an offensive tone, and I was going to apologize again… but then the thread got closed.
I did say something wrong, but that was because I was ignorant, and then I realized that it was wrong, and was going to apologize for it. I was trying to tell this person that I wasn’t trying to be offensive, I just had questions…
I feel like I would have understood better if the person came at my ignorance with a different approach. We could have had an open-minded conversation on why my statement was wrong, but instead, it felt like the person was yelling at me.
I just think that if you see a racist/ignorant/mean comment, you can’t just assume that that was what the person was trying to say.
Sorry, this turned into a rant, but those are some things I find annoying on the forums…
I guess my annoying thing about the forums is that some people aren’t really respectful of other’s opinions on a lot of topics.
