I may be overreacting but I do that so well! Foe, what a stupid word, it sounds like Faux, and that is further from the truth. I am personally offended

Happened to me once. I could see no reason for this person putting me on their list of foe's. I u2ud the person. They didn't even realise they had done it . So I wish I would have just asked why. Instead of crying and whining "How could you do this to me!"." What did I ever do to you" .
And on and on.

Hey don't feel bad.. Some people don't like what you have to say and some don't want to hear it. Well good for them.....
This is a good area to air those things out.
Keep up...

I bet starting this thread is an excellent way to acquire ALOT of foes

If you hate being randomly foe'd by people you have never heard should try being a mod for a day!

No thanks...This is one of the (more minor) reasons why I turned down the offer of Modship twice.

IMHO though, this person who "foe'd" you probably doesn't really ujnderstand the reason why it's there in the first place: It's to give mention to someone who has opposing opinions & can back them up with facts, but who also gives them a reason to really start thinking, instead of merely throwing out "catch-phrases & buzz-words" to make a point.

I've never listed anyone as my Foe, simply because a lot of members don't really make me think very hard to refute their posts. The only people with whom I disagree most are those who close their minds to any other point of view (even those backed by documented facts): that type of person isn't worthy of being my Foe in the first place.

Also because those who really do make me think are those who are willing to see all sides of an argument...And there usually comes at least some form of agreement between us in the process. Those people I usually wind up tagging as Friends instead.

The one person (so far) that listed me as their Foe at least recognized that I made them think, even though there came no agreements between us. At least my Foe made me think in order to refute his/her every post...

As well as the guy who "foe'd" me because he just wanted to "smash me in the face!".....

Another guy "foe'd" me & told me I'm "a waste of DNA & body fluid!"

Maybe...maybe not

Let's just say that was the only time I was vindicated.

Ah, I wouldn't worry about it.
If this was a bar, they might have suckered you with a draft mug.
The only thing they can punch here is the keys..
You could tell them:
Foe You too Chally Chan!

Recently happened to me also - same thing - by a new member with only a few posts, etc.

Does it bother me? No. What does bother me is the curiosity factor. I really want to know what specific post caused the member to hit the 'foe' button.

Soooo, I go through their posts and see if that will give up a clue, which it never seems to.

I too would like to know what post sparked the foe, or the reason.

In most cases I send a polite U2U asking if I've offended the member in some way, or, if they could direct me to the post that caused the 'foe', but, mostly those U2U's go unanswered and it remains a mystery!

Stock up on the duck grease and apply liberally to your back.

Added Note: Beautiful Akita!

Dear me, who cares? Well clearly you do...
It's just a stranger on an internet forum. I think you need a sense of perspective - and a life.

So what - I have probably been foe'd a lot of times - who cares? It is only someone else judging you when they don't even know you.

That is the least of your worries.

Greensage, you have only been a member for a month, please don't start blocking everyone who foe's you, and after starting this thread i reckon a few more will for giggles, and thats gonna leave you with incomplete threads that you sift through because you have 20% of the contributors blocked, lmao!

Seriously dude, only block those who directly attack you or offend you on more than one oocasion without even a hint of sorriness.

Peace and chill dude, welcome to ATS \_/8

I friend people who foe me just to be a jerk.

Don't take it too hard. Some people just need to throw a hissy fit.

I think i would not give a hoot...and to give it credence will just exasperate a unecesary situation.

to think one might only have friends would be silly....and if they are a new member they may have just did this without much thought and had no idea what they were doing other than trying out new buttons.

and as a new member me self....i know i will be foe' i am a strong very opinionated

be well and i shall not add to your foe list...but if it helps you to feel any better you may foe me just for that oh so foe'd

If being Foe'd is the worst of your problems,
then you're having a good day.

I have lots of foes, and as my signature says, if I don't foe you back, it's because I don't respect you enough.
