Negativity and Passive Agression
Lately I’ve noticed a large number of passive aggression and serious negativity within the community.
I never post or create on the forums with the intent to offend anyone or stir up drama, in fact; I loathe drama and advocate for Anti-drama.
Despite carrying around these standards, I’ve still been harassed and made to feel bad by others. I rarely ever respond and either flag the comments, but that doesn’t change the fact they get to me.
But this isn’t just about me!
I know others in the community has received this treatment and want nothing to do with drama. But sometimes it’s hard avoiding negativity especially when you’re looking for answers and solving issues at hand.
I think as a community we need to fight harder against aggression of all forms and be more mature.
If you’re one of the people who are spreading the negativity, i ask of you to:
- Have Empathy
Before you write your message think of what you’d feel or how you’d react if you’re the person on the other end and you received that message.
Is making someone feel bad truly worth it? It’s it worth the time and harassment?
- Common ground
Find a common ground. Understand where they’re coming from in a polite and non passive aggressive manner.
I know sometimes you just want let it out all out and body slam some of these immature people on the forums, but please hold your tongue and figure out how to settle the situation before escalating it!
To The Community!
Flag negativity! Save the drama for the PM’s! If you’re upset or feel like the victim, contact a moderator or flag the post! You trying to communicate with the harasser might lead to you feeling even worse. Don’t put yourself through that. Let them bathe in their ignorance. Be the bigger person!
Lately these groups of people have been BAD and it needs to stop.
I’ve become accustomed to the positivity and groups of great people on the forums so it comes across as shocking when I see someone so hostile! and there’s a lot of these people
We need to fix this!
To the Moderators!
I just wanted to say thank you for everything you’ve done and the roles you’ve played in the community! You’re hero’s!
I think we should be able to flag or report accounts Incase said account continues harassment against a singular person or in multiples. A block option would be nice too!
Let me know down below if you have any suggestions on what we can to do to fight against harassment!
If you have any experiences or stories to shares, please share them. Others might relate to you and you can express your feelings with people in the same situation!
Thank you again!
