The trouble is that some people feel as though they have a right not to be offended. They don't. Someone crosses the line and says something inappropriate to you on an internet forum? Make a mental note that they're an asshole, and move on with your life. Problem solved.

Very few people have so little going on that they'll continue to torment another who does not respond. Most of us learn this in kindergarten. If you find that you are continually being hassled by strangers on the internet, it's probably a good idea to spend some time thinking about why that is.

Really? So why is it you spend time here, as opposed to, say, somewhere largely unmoderated, like the fashion section of 4chan?

He's not speaking to moderation he's speaking to those who seek moderation because they are thin-skinned and vindictive.

for the most part i agree with this. i would only add, that there are times where people do use the anonymity of the interent to cross lines that really aught not to be crossed, or push buttons for the sake of pushing buttons. whatever the reason, its almost always better, or rather, it probably is always better, to contact a mod. that is part of what they are here for. to date, i do not think i have seen someone come here to air a beef against another poster that ended well, or could not have been handled swifter, and with greater effect, via PM.

there seems to be about 5% of the posters who do most of the trolling and butt-hurt complaining and it is a highly correlated group. Of course, there is a reason why most of some people's social interaction happens on the internet.

You can spot these guys from a mile away, though. It is evident in everything they post, not only in their whining.

I didn't know they had a fashion section. I've never spent any time there; their bulletin board format seems extremely annoying. This site is primarily dedicated to clothing, with various clothing-specific sub-forums, and some interesting side forums. That site is mostly dedicated to bullshit, with a single "fashion" subforum.

Sending a PM to a mod is better than posting in public. Just ignoring it is even better than sending a PM to a mod. I agree that bringing someone's family into an argument is over the line, but what exactly is the net negative impact? The poor wife and children will....well, nothing actually, because they'll never even know it happened. Furthermore, the person who made the comment has never met your family, knows little to nothing about them, and is only making the comment to get a reaction out of you. The options at this point are: 1. Get in a big internet argument, which will lead to most people thinking both of you are acting like children, or 2. Not do anything, because the vast majority of people who see the comment the other guy made about your family will think he's an asshole.

And for those who still disagree, to look at it from a completely different perspective - let's say someone made a comment about your wife on the internet, and you responded. If you were to go home to your wife and say "Hi honey, some asshole on the internet who I don't know and will never meet talked shit about you today, but I really told him!" - what do you think your wife's reaction would be?

lolz

but to be srs, there is a reason to involve a mod at times imo. this is still a public place, and weather or not the musings of interent strangers actually impact ones life outside of ones feelings, its still wrong to treat people improperly and be an asshole. and if someone decides that the general rules of public behavior do not apply to them, then maybe they should be asked to leave the public places.

My wife would ask if I'd been trolling one of her friends' blogs, again.

And by "her friends' blogs", I meant, ThePurseForum.
