There are people of all ages, backgrounds, and countries posting on here. Be polite. (And I am not talking about a heated discussion on a particular topic, I am talking about random threads where people come in to troll for no other reason than that they are bored.)

    In summation: if you need an INFP to be your voice of reason, you are failing at life.
    I was just going to make a thread about it to chide our very own forum bullies about that thing earlier.
    It's just disgusting to see someone who wouldn't hurt a fly get ganged up on like that.
    There's a difference between two or more disagreeing parties and outright bullying.
    Anyone with a heart should know that it's not even remotely okay or funny.
    It's far worse than physical violence, even.

    I like to point out that I have been here in 2008, surviver of rudeness !

    Except for isolated incidents with a few trolls that have been banned, things have never been as generally bad as they are now.

    I want that t-shirt. And, because I'm not rude, I'm not even going to correct your spelling. :-)

    In a way I like the abrasiveness. I've built a tolerance that has spilled into real life. I was always not too bad at keeping calm with difficult people, now, that has improved even more.

    You have to be careful though. As you get used to it there is a tendency to loosen up yourself.

    Yeah, that seems about par for the course. I think Te is probably the most "hard-nosed" judging perspective out of the four. Te deals with things directly to accomplish a task, while the social ramifications are a tangential issue, while Ti usually depends on the corresponding Pe function to handle its business, and Pe always seems soft compared to Je. Te also will say,"Technically, I did not mean to be offensive and was just working toward this goal, so why are you upset?" whereas Ti is more interested in the essence of things and thus a little more accommodating even if it can be stubborn in its own way to those with even more personal sense..

    I find it ironic to see these posts back to back.

    What did I miss? I don't think things are bad now at all. I agree with Crystal Violet that two to three years ago there was a much more severe dog-eat-dog mentality, and yes, I learned from the experiences, actually. It was a growth experience and I'm glad I had it. Shiny Te is shiny.

    On the other hand, I agree with Saturned that if someone is obviously hurting in some way you should back off. Making people cry is bad, but I think people should be allowed to joke, tease, and make certain points without it being white-washed as "politically incorrect."

    There is a line between the two things.

    But overall I don't think the forum is that bad right now at all.

    Yeah, I remember when I came here from INTPc - the ultimate place for NF hazing... I had gotten used to it and had to calm down a little myself.

    As long as people who give it can take it, if they can't, that's the thing that annoys me but I don't see it a lot here.

    In all honesty, the matter of insults and sensitivity is tad complex concerning the individuals invovled. Yes, an internet forum lacks the face to face interface of real life, but that's what emoticons and properly structured sentences are for. Now if two freinds are trach talking each other, like throwing jokes and insults but at the same time openly laughing about it, then that's all fine and dandy. But should such insensitivity be used against everyone? No. Some people are just naturally vulnerable, take insults seriously, and don't like being treated badly; it's who they are. So people should be more catious not to upset such delicate people with insults, and save such talk with those whom don't mind a little abrasive language.

    Also, the severity of an insult is crucial to consider; making fun of an idiot who sabotages his reputation my acting like a whiny bitch over nothing (like me ) is probably going to get some negative feedback thrown their way by the community, and chances are they deserve it, at least to a certain extent. But serious insults should probably always be avoided; making fun of someones recently dead mother is awful and will only hurt the victim, thus should be avoided.

    That's my thoughts on the matter anyway. Props to Saturned for having the guts to make this thread

    Solution:
    Go to INTPc and come back after a month.
