    Don't Agree.

    I don't agree with personal attacks because they happen to me so often. They especially happen online, especially on this site, but they happen in real life too. I live a very isolated life & don't have much interraction with people but when I do, a lot of times I end up...

    When people personally attack me. I feel it necessary to attack them back. Usually if someone asks you if you're ugly they are saying you are ugly. I mean that's not always the case, but I read into questions like that as personal attacks, and generally I personally attack...

    They Make Me Mad

    i hate when some people are debating something important that sometimes when the argument is going against them and they bring the dirt out and make personal jibes about their appearance or character, it makes no sense to me and shows a complete lack of intelliegence

    This site is supposed to be a place of refuge,artistic expression, compassion for others, to find like-minded individuals to form friendships with. It really upsets the balance of things when an individual is attacked on a personal level for their beliefs, their opinions, the...

    I Just Detest Them

    I can't stand when someone is personally attacked by another. Many times out of the blue for no reason at all. I feel so bad when that happens. I really try never to be that way myself, although I know I'm flawed. When I feel passionately about something, even though I try...

    I Don't Care If People Attack Me Personally...

    There are a lot of it going on here on EP and I have just reported someone who did that to me. I have never thought I would report someone. I have never flagged anything and I have used the thumbs down only once. When I see a group I don't like or disagree with, I...
