Why are some people so mean and unfair?

I just don't understand why some people are so mean. It's not fair to treat others badly. I wish everyone could try and be sensitive, at least for once. A while ago I was reading a post that someone had posted and the comments really surprised me. Some comments were so mean that I felt bad.

I understand that we have different personalities and we were created differently but it is good to be nice to others. It is also fair enough to watch our words. Words can can either build or break someone. Make it a point to be nice to others, it will cost you nothing. Being mean won't benefit you anything, and if it does, it wont last forever. Do good regardless of the bad that has been done to you.

My dad says I have a "chicken heart" I don't know about that but all I know is I love being nice to people and I always feel affected when people are treated badly.

I agree. I think there's a way to have a discussion without people jumping all over you.

Some people are mean to a fault, but also on the internet I think a lot of words are misconstrued. That is why using emoticons are important.

Unfortunately, with places like this, you are bound to run into people you do not agree with. Some people can be very blunt and to the point. I'm usually one of these people, but I try to not be that way here.

Some people's lives are just so shallow that they have to fill the void by making others miserable. For them I think it just sort of fills some void. I am glad I am not one of those people.

It's really easy to be a bully online. Like Gidget said though, sometimes typed words have a different meaning than if they were said in person. Hopefully the people you referred to were just misunderstood and not being a bully.

I agree, it takes no time or effort to type politely. However, I agree with some of the other comments that it's easy to misconstrue what a person's attitude is on places like this.

It is really unfortunate that people tend to be more mean or blunt with their opinions on-line. A lot of people actually find it easier because they don't have to see the pain they inflict. But also sometimes things can be taken in the wrong way because words without a sensory emotion put to them can be easily misunderstood. I wish people were more mindful of what they say and try to be as neutral as possible. I mean it's healthy to have a debate, but it has to be done in a polite and understanding manner. PP needs a friendly community, not a bashing one.

It is a free world
and being here is also out of choice and freedom
I don't think any one was forced to join this platform
I have noticed that self appointed apostles of clean and neat writing have been calling people names here and imputing that they and only they know what PP wants and likes, I have a penchant for putting people where they belong and that's what I am going to do henceforth, but it is important to point out that anyone who feels that he or she knows more of what PP wants than those two ( MaeLou , elitecodex , ) who are using their time and resources to keep this site running, then they should opt out of this platform and go set up theirs. Simply put

I agree.. each of us has their own opinions regarding any and all issues, it might be a good idea to respect each others opinions, if we disagree with an opinion, it's best to use the right words or if you can't I think its best to just shut up.

There are some people who do not understand what is off limit when it comes to social media.

Some could be so unaffected by being blunt on other people, more so online when they do not know what would be the reaction of the one they "bashed."

I would buy peace. Give benefit of doubt and move on and try not to cross that person's path again emoticon :grin:

Sometimes, people don't know that their honest remarks are considered as mean... Everyone is different with different personalities and cultures... It would do each of us well if we would think before we post....

See, this is what I mean. midastouch is simply being direct and to the point, but to some he may sound mean. Truth and fact, because they are not always what we want to hear, often sound harsh.... Thanks midastouch for being an example.

Truth has no other name but truth
say it as it is
