And you want to yell b$llsh$t ? Or is it just me who feels that way lol do you just ignore the post and move on? Obviously you don't want to be confrontational but sometimes it gets really bad on boards.

I think it depends. If it's something harmless or a one time thing, I typically ignore it. If it is upsetting people or attempting to take advantage of the sympathy and trust of the other girls, I tend to respond to it but not necessarily in a confrontational way. If it's an ongoing problem, like with a troll, I tend to call it out. I know there are people out there looking for attention, but I hate it when someone uses a forum like this to take advantage of the good and trusting natures of others.

I am pretty nave, so I don't often feel that way. Especially after seeing what's already gone down here, I would be loathe to think I know what's going on with someone else, and I would hate to think that someone thought it with me!

It depends. If I don't think I can be a little diplomatic I skip over it. If I feel like I can respond with at least some tact, I'll respond. On this board anyways. On the other forum I belong to I call ppl out because it's more of a free for all there.

My mom always said, If you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all!!
So, I try really hard not to post on things I find suspicious, if I do I tend to try a positive post first, then from there see where my hormones and mood take me...

Sometimes though, I will just pick a few to read and post on, bc I am normally on here while I am at work, so not too much time to browse!! So, I don't always get to see the shady posts as they show up!

It depends on my mood.

Sometimes I ignore it. Other times I try and nicely call it out. Then there are my bad days where I just tell it the way it is.

I can't stand being lied to. I can't stand when people think I and others are dumb enough to believe their BS. So more often than not I call it nicely or not.

Let's just say, knowledge is power, lol! People usually do a good job of letting you know if they are full of it/lying/exaggerating if you keep your eyes open.



Oh and if I see that someone is being dishonest in a hurtful and irresponsible way, I definitely call them out...as I did on another board on JM earlier this week.

I usually ignore it and if I do post, it's something on the nicer side just to be nice

I tend to ignore and stay away from drama. Life is stressful enough, I'm not interested in getting involved in other people's drama (especially online). Just my personal experience, but I guess it depends on the situation (particularly if it's hurting other people).

Just ignore it and move on. If a person is a troll they want your attention and want to cause disruption. They like seeing you get upset. Don't feed them and they will go away. If you feel that someone is a troll or that a post is inappropriate you should hit the report button. The mods will take care of.

It's important to not try and "deal" with it yourself. It can end up back firing on you and you'll end up with a banned account yourself due to verbal attack or hate speech. Remember there is an ignore function as well.

There have been a few post I sense are BS. But I'm just a naturally suspicious person. Lol I try to be tactful, but if the BS is reeking I must say sumn. Most times I let it go tho. I've been warned not to stir the pot by the mods so I keep a low profile lol.

I wont be the first person to say something on posts like that and try to avoid posts with conflicts lol I usually find them after they have been called out though so i am not very good at weeding out the trolls haha

I am really feeling like there was a purpose to this and now I am so curious!!!


As for ignoring trolls. The problem with that approach is there are people out there who couldn't spot one if they smacked them in the face. They could get suckered in and invested in sob stories and even taken advantage of financially.

There are also ones, like from my last DDC, who steal real stories and pictures and pass them off as their own. This not only hurts the people who believe them but also the people whose story they stole.

Who can just quietly sit by and allow that to go on? I would never feel right ignoring that. And sorry to the kids but they don't always have the time or inclination to dig as deep as needed for exposure.

I'm also curious...


I don't have the energy to post in threads with drama though. I tend to just ignore it.

Curiosity killed the cat but I'm also one of the curious ones!! I'd like to think that I don't stir the pot and that I'm diplomatic as well but I really think it depends on the topic and\or situation. If I truly know something is inaccurate, I feel the need to correct the post but if its really not something that I have a ton of insight on, if rather stay out of it.
