i know this exact reason explains my bad rep around those couple of people who think i'm stuck up and bitchy. i mean, i CAN be bitchy, but only when i'm attacked when i didn't do anything wrong. if anyone's actually heard me speak, they know that i'm kind. this is why the most painful thing anyone can say to me is, "you're vain," "you're stuck up," "you think you're so special," "you think you're all that," "you think you're better than everyone." but really, you guys know this, i'm very passionate about equality... and... you know how i really feel about myself... but this bad rep also comes from... well, remember when, way way back, that one girl got butt hurt because i blocked her because she insulted me for hating mpreg. then she sent her friend after me, who was once a fan of PWF, and who apparently is disliked by her fans because she's not too nice, even though she's a good artist. sooooooooo i tried standing up for myself, but apparently that makes me stuck up. and it all really hurt me. i don't want to admit it, but it did. and because of me standing up for myself, all these people i've never spoken to started flaming me. maybe one or two actually messaged me to maturely ask me what the hell was going on, and they were like "ooooh," and weren't mean to me anymore. maybe they still didn't like me much, but they no longer flamed me.

it doesn't hurt when people don't like me. there's plenty of people i don't like. but you don't need to flame. say... i hate justin beiber, but honestly, if i MET him, i wouldn't insult him. i'd get his autograph and find someone who DOES like him to give it to. i mean, how often do you get to meet a celebrity? same with john cena. *sigh* and i'm probably gonna be flamed for everything i'm saying right now, even though it's not mean. see, misinterpreting text is very common. everything i'm saying can be taken as like "oh my god, these people like OH MY GOD like hate and stuff," all like snap fingers and head bob like "oh no you didn't," but if you were to HEAR me say this, i am being sincere. honesty is one of my personal codes of life. i am also very emotional and very passionate. i just hate how all that seems to be... WRONG nowadays.

we can help reduce flame wars by not jumping the gun and also clearing up misunderstandings. we can't STOP it, cause there are always those trolls that comment to as many people as possible and insulting them. this is their hobby and they have no life. i think we can all agree on that. and remember, strangers online can be as mean as they want, but they're hiding behind a computer. i wanna meet my haters in person and see how they react to the real situation. i don't hide behind a computer, i show myself very bluntly, which sometimes can make it seem like i'm trying to get attention, but... heh, i can think of ways to actually perposefully try to get attention. but i am honest and don't hide. what's the point? some things don't have to be secret. and when people know what you've gone through attracts others who have the same problems to come forward and ask advice. i've saved a lot of lives because of this and have helped many people to find new confidence and such.

we don't have to like everyone, but we don't need to bring innocent people down either. help make a difference and think about what you say and think about what might be going on on the other person's side.

I've had people flip out on me when I say, "Cool," or, "Awesome".

So now I'll say "Cool! c:" Or just add a cutesy smiley face or something.

Hey Rei. remember when I asked you if I annoyed you with any of the questions/comments that I post? The answer to this interrogative was known well before I asked. As said in the above passage and illustrated in the animation people can receive a complement as petty sarcasm, often jumping to unjustified conclusions. Emoticons do help in making expressions more clear, but it only works if the recipient is familiar with them. For instance, does ^^ mean enlightened or annoyed? This one seems clear enough to me ( D:<- ) how do others interpret it? Perhaps it's best if you are not clear on a message you've received to request some clarification before arbitrarily jumping off the deep end and starting an argument or losing a friendship over some petty misunderstanding.

Have you ever sent someone a message and the recipient responded back in a defensive manner when there was no cause for it. In reply, you respond back addressing their behavior and providing clarity as to the actual meaning of the original message you wished to convey in the 1st place. They apologize then say that you should have used emoticons? This ruse is designed to place the blame back on your shoulders for having offended him/her and thus vindicate themselves from the responsibility of being a dumb-ass. In truth, this does not pardon impulsive behavior as it is the recipients responsibility to obtain the proper understanding to a message before a conclusion is reached. I once lost a friend this way after asking a simple question. Instead of asking to reinterpret or redress the question this person, instead choose to reply back with a venomous response. I then reply back with an apology for having offended this person as I didn't think the question was in any way offensive and they replied back with more flam-mage. A few weeks then passed and this person wrote back with an apology and said that I should have used emoticons.... 0_o
This was about 4 years ago and my animosity toward this person has dissipated since then, nor do I wish any ill will apon this individual. But, well never be friends again and all because of a immature, prejudice interpretation that would have been easily avoided.
The moral: be careful of what you say and dictate as you are responsible for your thoughts.

yea, for me, i've learned to ask, "what did you mean by that?" but i never blame someone for not using emoticons

I know, and if you're being sarcastic you have to put something like *sarcasm* so that they don't take you seriously. Otherwise they'll be bitching at you all day.
