Philosophically speaking..Is Yahoo the site that has no answer to the question of why it is, that so many?

abuse what was set up to be a site of learning and sharing? How disappointed must they be that they cannot find a solution to all the bullying and harrassment on Yahoo answers?

It is because of this that i no longer choose to participate in this forum, with some (not all) of the most ill mannered, rude, obnoxious bunch of people that i have had the poor judgement to have tried to be friendly towards. It seems that the nicer you are, the more you are picked upon. I have experienced this personally, by people such as La dolce Vita who has multitudes of accounts that she uses to harrass and bully people. Her anger management classes obviously did not do any good. I received hate mail from this cold hearted woman who knew of my illness (heart) and constantly wished me dead. Wrote terrible things about my beautiful family. I can only assume jealousy was the reason for her cruelty. I feel sorry for her. And then there is the person who calls himself Nameless. It leaves me wondering how anyone can be so rude and still Yahoo does nothing about him. MTR.. i do not know what your problem is, and why you feel the need to pick fights. There are other USERS that constantly harrass some of my dearest friends on here... I will miss none of your codswallop and crap.. towards myself or watching you attacking such wonderful people.

HOWEVER..... there are people who i WILL miss. and miss greatly.. You have been some of the most genuine people i have met in my life. I thank you for your friendship and the love you have shown to me, in my time here. I have chosen not to name all my wonderful friends as i know they will only be subjected to even more harrassment.. but you know who you all are..


((((((((((((((((((((((WARMEST OF HUGS))))))))))))))))) (-:

I expect this will be deleted.. It is what you do best.. and you know who i am talking to here, don't YOU!!!.

Ps.. If anyone knows of a friendly site where all are considerate and caring, please let me know. (-:

    I got nothing to say about this site or any other sites out there. For sure we all know why we are here.....despite the fact that 'anyone' unimaginably fixated in malice and hostility can intermix with those who simply want to peacefully share and learn by laying down their cards right on this public table. As everyone thinks his right of freedom, some go as far as 'hacking down spirits', or go havoc slashing hearts----with their crude sense of freedom....and 'fun'. (I can imagine them now grinning over the thought of winning their fictitious battle.*lols*)

    On the side of things, let's pity the kind of 'cleverness' they boldly exhibit. As ably they could hide from one mask to another, their hearts might ever be nakedly cold. And how 'sad' could that be? They might be 'suffering' from things we'd never come to know.....because they wish their doors and windows closed. They might not even be realizing that they are bedding on their own vomits? They might be screaming frantic with the frightening image they see in their mirror? Maybe,.....they just couldn't comprehend themselves, and are too alienated on how wonderful it is to-----really LOVE one another?

    Blessings come in different mysterious ways, dear Lorrs. Let's not give up hoping for a bright dawn after a darkest night. Nothing defeats good.....not a ton of gruesome letters.....Not even a million thumbs. Let's leave them with their 'momental feast'.....till they're done......as we move on with our internal peace----over cuppas of strong faith.

    ((((((((((hugs my dear Friend and friends)))))))))))

    PEACE to ALL!

    I don't always expect to be right, and I'm not always bored. As a matter of fact, I sometimes am energized when I come here. I answer because, on certain levels of concerns, even though I do not have a formal education or degree on, I still feel strongly that I can assist, so I lay it down on this board. Sometimes you don't need a formal education, but life skills can suffice appropriately.

    Because one is able to hide behind a keyboard, and log in with a made-up name, they think they are the toughest person on earth. Sadly, this often does NOT cover up their stupidity and all they do is show said stupidity for all the world to see.

    However, a site like Y!A does not allow this stupidity to be highlighted, or pointed out, so with that in mind, an answer MUST be in line with the question. I can't answer for everyone, but I just cannot become that stupid just so as to answer a question! However, when I do answer a question, the answer is usually beyond the intelligence of the asker, so they report it. I'm penalised for someone else's stupidity! How does that work?

    Then there are the questions / answers that are a blatant breach of the Community Guidelines. I no longer report them as my influence is at an all time low, so my reported posts are NEVER removed, even if I include what the breach falls under in my report. The mods don't care, don't have a sense of humour, nor do they use any common sense. So, if the mods don't care, why should we? Afterall, we are supposed to self moderate, but how?

    I have thought about leaving Y!A many times, but have realised that by NOT replying to the stupids, posting answers what the asker wants to hear (even if information is incorrect), answer untruthfully (so as not to get reported); in fact, answer exactly how Y!A advises you not to, then you will be safe and allowed to continue to build your points. I have been fortunate enough to know where to look to find anything I'm looking, so I have NEVER asked a question here. Any question I ask would need a smart person to answer, and on Y!A, they are extremely difficult to find.

    Lorry I know of you through a mutual contact who thinks the world of you. I was just commenting to her about you, how you seem to be a very nice, caring and thoughtful individual. I see that in your questions and answers. The people that have already answered this question are intelligent, caring individuals. Every time a person of that caliber on answers leaves, the bad ones win. I come here for enlightenment and hopefully to make friends from all over the world. I am one that wishes, for reasons of my own, for all borders of the world to cease so that we may learn from each other. Every time we learn something, in a small way, we make this world a better place. I sincerely hope you stay.

    There are only a handful (if that many) that keep me participating

    here. I do not participate as much as I use to, but do pop in

    and out mainly to support contacts. You being one of them..

    you are one of the loveliest of people that I have come in contact.

    Your questions and answers will be missed,

    your style and class will be missed.

    I feel most who are so consumed with such malice have serious

    insecurity and emotional issues, and choose to take it out on

    the ones they wish to be like.

    I understand why you want to leave and can't say I blame you

    and another lovely contact of ours who is constantly

    harassed for no reason.

    I say nobody go anywhere,.. cut off communication from ones

    who have not grown up yet and do not play well with others. :)

    I know this is easier said than done, and am not taking

    away from what you have been subjected to, I just hate to see

    the ones who really belong here leave.

    ♥Love you Lorry, thank you for being you and being a special

    lady to so many of us.

    God Bless♥

    To be brutally honest, it ain't just Yahoo Answers, its the entire internet. I try to answer questions in an either serious or at the very least witty, humorous way, but there are still a few questions I've been too brutally honest and answered insensitively. It happens. The internet tempts people into this behavior with the anonimity it provides. Unfortunately there are no sites that are 100% free from it.

    Hi Lorry.

    I suggest that you stick around and learn the lesson you have been guided to this site to learn.

    There are no accidents.

    This is a valuable learning tool for people who tend to take nonsense comments too seriously.

    I know how this can hurt, but it really doesn't have anything to do with you at all.

    The things these people say tell a lot about them but nothing about you at all.

    These comments do not describe nor define you. It is just nonsense noise made by rude unintelligent people.

    The only way this nonsense can have any affect on you is if you take the nonsense to heart.

    If I walked up to you on the street and called you a duck billed platypus, would it hurt your feelings?

    Or would you just laugh at me and think that I was crazy?

    You would just see me as a confused person talking nonsense in your vicinity.

    The people who are insulting you are just confused people talking nonsense in your vicinity.

    The only difference is you are taking the nonsense that they are talking seriously.


    Stick around, you are one of the good guys.

    We need your help.

    Love and blessings Don

    I think, As a Wonderful Human , It is Better to Stay Here without Focusing Your Concentration on the Bad Dialogs of Our Literate Friends, and Let them as they are, Allowing Your Thoughtful Ideas to the Members Here, will Makes Our Time Here with the Fulfill Moments of Happiness, to SEE YOU, JUST HERE, LORRY!

    I think, They are Literate, But, They Leave Their "CRITICAL THOUGHTS" In the Study Room Itself. But, Any way, We have to Respect Their Academical Ideas, Which I Could Not Really Understand.

    Lorry I will miss you so much and your wonderful questions and answers. I hate to see you go and let the trolls here keep things up. You are a wonderful person and friend that I dearly cherish. I just hope you just take a break and come back. You add so much here and will be dearly missed by many. (((hugs)))

  • 7 years ago

    Lorry, dear one, please stay with us. I will miss you too badly if you go. One by one the good ones are being chased away. You are a beautiful soul and we need you. Perhaps if you stay we can sway the mood the other way, to one of gentleness, intelligence, something of value. We have been invaded by a hoard of low life. I learned a long time ago to keep private. When I first joined YA, I was attacked by a wacko through posts and e-mails. After that I cut off all communication with members here to save my peace of mind. I have no contacts, although I have wanted to connect with some...you are one of them. It is so sad that we have to protect ourselves from others. There is a handful of people so lovely they get into my heart. I feel I know you and them as friends. But I have been viciously attacked here and know how you feel. Please, dear heart, reconsider. If you leave you will be handing over your goodness to these malcontents. Please stay. Please.

    I miss the Yahoo that was when I came here 6 years ago.

    I know from experience sometimes you just need to go.

    I support you & love you no matter what you choose to do.

    May you always walk with God in truth & love.

    Many Blessings!
