I've been noticing as I read through threads that some people seem to get offended when their opinions are questioned, or disagreed with or when they don't agree with other opinions. People are quick to either leave a conversation, place people on ignore but before they do, they usually give a reply to a poster in what often appears as rude or meant to shut down a conversation. Sometimes I see name calling thrown around and labeling that is meant to be insulting and definitely judgmental. Questioning someone's "Blackness" happens quite often. That is a form of cyber-bullying in my opinion because I've seen one member reprimanded several times for doing this. I'm not going to name any names, that would be inappropriate. But each time I read someone who gets offended because someone else won't agree with their opinion, or will ask them a question seeking clarification of their opinion . . . the exchange between them turns into a playground event. This is a DISCUSSION board. This is where people write what they think and other people react to what they say. Destee and her moderators expect that these exchanges occur with respect as opposed to insults. Sometimes there's agreement; sometimes there's disagreement. Why are some of us so sensitive and easily offended? Why do we sometimes take things that people say to us as a personal indictment of us? Why can't we just talk to each other in respectful ways?
