I thought that PersonalityCafe "The place to discover yourself" would be a forum for open, fair and equal personal opinion and discussion.
I didn't think that people's opinions, however contradictory to others, could be blindly taken as personal attacks, thus making it possible for personal insults and retaliations because someone can't see another point of view.
I'm disappointed that just because someone thinks differently, feels differently and values different things they are openly attacked and treat differently because of their personality.
Unless someone has personally attacked you how is it okay to allow a personal attack in a moderated forum? And is the founder so unconcerned with fairness because the offended party is naturally confrontational? Or does he just rely on the moderators? I don't understand :(
Just because someone is expressive of things not deemed socially acceptable doesnít make that person nasty it makes them different or interesting or just alternative, or playing devilís advocate if you will.
If someone takes that opinion or point of view personal when it's not aimed personally (however antagonistic itís perceived by the majority) is the one interpreting itís problem surely. Why is everything seen as a personal attack when it's just an apposing view, strong ones at that? Are people so insecure that any alternative free thought is a threat?
And why care so much that they think or feel differently, what happened to free speech, each to their own and all that annoying but vital jargon that allows people to be themselves. Insulting someone because they think differently and outside the box is basically crap and although I appreciate it is common place in pretty much most peopleís day to day life, I had hoped this forum would provide a refreshing alternative, that it would be guided and encouraged to be more open minded and fair in dealing with the varying personalities of individuals. I'm so disappointed; this forum is not what I hoped it would be.
I am not after an arguement, I am too depressed to engage in one but felt compelled to express my disappointment. I'm also painfully aware that humans are flawed and complex individuals (myself included) and that such matters are not that easy to assess, address and aim to rectify; but I do feel there are wider issues raised regarding the forum that are perhaps being overlooked.
