Comment: I was once

(See in situ)

I was once

called a sock puppet on a site and it hurt. I didn't even know what it meant, so I know it hurts to be called names and accused of something. When I first came here 4 years ago I was called troll. lol

It is not wise to call names because the possibility of being wrong is so great.

I can also relate to the people who do call the names because of frustration and it takes practice to learn how to deal with such situations.

What is the answer? What I do is ignore the posts that don't want a conversion but just wants to bicker. I have no problem with people with a different opinion because I see it as an opportunity to test my own reasoning.

Hope you are not turned off on our little site. Hope you realize that there are all types of people coming from different perspectives and clashes will happen and sometimes our feelings may get bruised. In the end I usually just say let's agree to disagree until further information is available to help shed light on a certain subject.
