I Don't Invade Experience Groups That I Don't Agree With

It doesn't hurt if you want to ask questions and try to understand groups with opposing views. However, purposely causing trouble and trying to stuff your opinion down in peoples throats is not cool. 584 People

    I don't, although I have posted on the stories

    of friends, generally to support them or discuss their point of view. I don't understand why people go to the trouble of joining a group whose premise they don't support in order to troll or bully its members.

    Different Strokes For Different Folks

    I enjoy reading stories here on Ep.  Some have made me sad, happy, mad and given me the opportunity to look at a situation another way. But if the gourp is something I don't agree with I don't join nor do I leave comments.  Why would I need to begin a debate in a group...

    Exercising My Choice Not To Groan On Other People's Parades

    I have, on occasion, responded to a member's story with a comment that questions their point of view.  I may have done this out of curiosity, to gain clarity if I didn't understand their original point, or perhaps to even challenge their view a little.  It's my personal...

    Please, Don't Be a Jerk.

    It's one thing if someone starts a pro-molestation or pro-abuse group and they get attacked, but I'm talking more about groups like politics, religion, and mature topics that aren't hurting anyone. There are some groups that not everyone agrees to, no doubt, but it isn...

    There is one particular group I absolutely

    despise but harassing them about their choices would make me far worse than they are. Yes, it is wrong but it is their lives. They are aware of their actions and it is not my place to go and give them the third degree. ~ Adelaide.

    I Don't

    I'm all for a good debate but this is supposed to be a safe place where you can talk about things with people who understand you. When you invade other peoples groups you ruin it for everyone, not to mention you look like a total immature loser.

    If you don't like it or agree with it, don't look at it!   Its very simple, really.   Flaming in groups you don't agree with only makes you look like an intolerant moron.
