I live alone. I am a recluse. The most part of my social interaction is online these days.

I come to forums like ATS and Rolling Stone to socialise in part.

What generally happens is that I get ignored first of all. So I have to step up the tempo to get noticed so people will talk back. Then all I get is abuse.

This is happening to me on a constant basis.

Even my so caled real friends have been intolerant of my Christianity.

I no longer work because I was bullied out of two jobs and I broke down.

I now refuse to work and YOU have to pay for it, tax payer!!!

In the last week almost every post I have made has been responded to with nastiness and bullying.

On Rolling Stone I was defending Randy from Lamb of God about a fan's death after he pushed him and he cracked his head on the concrete (the fan that is). I was told to "Shut up" because my post was too wordy and eloquent.

I post here in the last two days and all I get is bullying and intolerance if I say anything that is Christian in nature.

I just had to report an ATS member for this after he followed me around today and ridiculed my every post; this was just out of malice.

Just letting you know that you are hurting me. I will fight you back because I am not a coward, but people pretty much disgust me nowadays!

I am me! I can't change that! Give me room to be who I am without having to respond with cruelty! Is that too much to expect? Or is this all I should expect from even you ATS?

Is that all I should expect? Should I shut my mouth up? Is that what you want?

Why? I give you room to be who you are!

Give me room and let me breathe!

You are giving away your power, my friend. Don't LET others bully you....they can't do it if you won't allow it.

Perspective and attitude can make a world of difference. In your rant, you come across as a victim; someone at the mercy of others. Change your thinking. You are a survivor, not a victim. And you are a worthwhile person.

It's not easy to do, changing attitudes and perspectives. But I promise you, it does work. And I make you another promise. I'll always listen when you need to talk, to vent. U2U me anytime.

You should never let words trouble you, they are just that. Words.
The only power they have over you, is what you allow them to have.

I am not interested in religions, but a few of my friends are very devout christians. We are still able to get along just fine.
I guess some people just don't know how to be civilized. Hopefully you will have better luck with your posting in the future.

Its your choice to be offended by internet trollz

dont be so sensitive you are taking things too personally. You could post just about anything and have people give you crap about it just roll with the flow and dont pretend they are people.

Oh and stop speaking about christianity if you dont want to be offended bc thats an open door for brutal posts.

I have been reading through your past posts and it appears as if you have had many very positive responses and you seemed quite happy. Don't let a few bad conversations with people get you down, and destroy your mood. Keep doing what makes you happy, let the good thoughts flow and keep your spirits up. You have many friends here, it seems. Never let others get you down.

Hey, I just got my butt chewed today by another member because he misunderstood my post. It happens. It's all part of "socializing" online and off.

Have you considered going to a local church occasionally? Or maybe inviting a Christian over to talk with you, and pray with you? There are a few mature Christians on here I'm sure would be happy to talk with you.

Have you also considered a Christian forum in addition to ATS? I don't know why you're a recluse, and it really isn't my business, but maybe you could stand some counseling with a pastor or elder of the church if you don't want to go secular.

I hope it works out for you.

Sorry OP but you have told me how you self medicate and we both know this can lead to paranoia, you need to calm down and lay off that stuff for a while, It can cause depression you know.

It's your own fault for living in cornwall!

No but seriously, your individuality doesn't mean anything, you don't deserve anything for being unique.

If you're being bullied, it's absolutely reprehensible, it shouldn't be happening, nobody should be making you feel uncomfortable because of who you are, but equally nobody should be giving you special leeway for who you are.

As for your rolling stone problem, I think you were probably in an argument there, and told to shut up by someone, not because of you being special, but because of them being stupid.

Regarding ATS, crying to the teacher never accomplished anything.

You be you, grow the # up, stop taking stuff to heart and live life as if it's your final days - WHY DOES IT MATTER WHAT ANYONE ELSE THINKS OF YOU?

Whether or not your opinions are stupid doesn't matter, just keep putting them out there, someone will like them eventually.

Do not try and get other people in trouble for disagreeing with you though, that is cowardice. If you have a problem with someone's opinion, tell them, not the admin.

Btw, from my personal experience with such matters, you're experiencing a mental breakdown leading to the schizoeffective spectrum disorders. Section yourself immediately.

Also according to my personal experience with such matters, you won't follow this advice and will endanger the general public by letting yourself roam with the unimpeachable belief that you are the arbiter of truth and justice.

I can certainly sympathize with you my friend. I too, am pretty much an introvert, and I find some of the verbal attacks on here towards Christians disheartening at times, as well. However, I just try to ignore them, and put it out of my mind and try to focus on other things. Sometimes I even stay away from here for a few days just to keep my head clear. One thing is for sure, there will always be bullies, ignorance, and jerks out there that don't know or understand how to disagree in a respectful manner. However, we should NEVER let someone else's actions dictate how we live our life and walk in our faith. So, keep your head up, keep your faith up, and don't give in to those that wish to drag you down to their level. Peace be to you my friend, and God bless you.

What you should do is give them a dose of their own medicine. And remember, words on a screen can cause no harm. Its a mistake to pretend the internet is anything like the real world, where courtesy and politeness is important.

What I'm seeing here is more bullying. The OP has a legitimate concern and some posters here are exacerbating the problem.

All this thread does is reinforce my dislike of contemporary society and its lack of basic manners and social graces.

Decent people don't speak to others as this person is being spoken to here. This may be normal for this day and age, but that in no way makes it acceptable.
