I received this message yesterday (part of it) by a member who was referring to a thread I told them about.
Another good thread ruined by trolls.
Why do they get on these kinds of threads, only to harass people? Are they so desperate to bully somebody and get away with it that they seek out ways
to do it online?
Why don't they start their own thread and just talk about how smart they are, or trade their best insults, barbs and put-downs? I'm sure they'd enjoy
being able to talk to somebody as smart as they think they are themselves.
His rant made me stop and think. This person is relatively new here. So, for them to come out of the blue and message me about others' behavior made
me realize just how bad this problem has become lately.
It seems a person is rarely able to put up a thread, or read a thread on ATS any more without these "insulting, know-it-all bullies" taking over the
discussion, and insulting the opinion of others. It's sickening! And it seems to get worse on ATS all the time.
I have a friend who told me of another site similar to this one that I may go to and say good-bye to this place!
I'm sick of all these people who think they are smarter than everyone else in the world!
Are they trying to impress someone? Or, are they trying to impress themselves?
People who have to bully others are very insecure about themselves. They have to try to make others look bad so they can feel good about themselves,
and their beliefs. This is a proven fact in psychology.
Can ATS start a forum for these people to post in, so they'll stay off our threads? Maybe call it "The Harassing Bully Forum"?!
