Ok, I have been on this site for a "small" while now. Most posts have been very friendly.
It's happened before, but in the past two days, I have left my opinion on two different posts and have had rude comments replied to them.
What is going on? Do I not have a right to say my opinion, even if it is different that someone elses?
Are people just on their yearly mood spell, or am I just totally out of line?
I am a very nice person, and try to keep peace. I realize that everyone has different opinons, but mine are not stated to start an argument. I may comment on someone elses opinion, but I hope I don't sound rude when doing it.
Is this just where people can have their catty fights to release stress? Am I just reading most of these posts wrong?
Is this normal for this site? I feel my only safe haven is here in the break room.
Love you guys!

No it's not normal for this site. Keep it in perspective. You've got 2377 posts as of this minute, if you've only had two rude comments you are doing well! 99.999999% of the posts on this bb are not catty.
People sometimes lash out more so on bb's than they would in life in person. Every now and then you're going to set someone off and engage in a heated argument, just engage, but don't judge the entire website. Allow it to happen, stand your ground, and let it pass.
I set someone off on my first day when I said "my LPNs" the response was "who do you think you are saying "my LPNs", do you own any LPNs" and spent days defending my statements. I certainly didn't judge the whole website and certainly did run.
Also on several occasions, I've been called rude and insensitive and have been put on a couple of ignore lists because I it's true, I'm tough as nails and not as sensitive as others. You're a sensitive soul, others of us who aren't trample on that sensitivity often without realizing it.
And no you don't have a right to your opinion, what are you crazy? Please. Get a life. Grow up. I can't believe this post? Geez...grow some skin.
