This is a microcosm of your/our real life. There are many different personalities here. It's important for us all to accept that there will be many different types of answers. If you don't you won't enjoy the good stuff. We have zero control over who answers or how they answer.
Cause this site is meant for fun. They shouldn't be mean but you can't expect a lack of sarcasm. If you want serious answers, let them know in your question.
Some of us who seem mean are actually simply direct. We would not answer if we did not care.
This site is like standing in an auditorium and speaking into a microphone. If you only want sensitive responses about something personal, speak only to sensitive individuals. Here, you've got everybody - nice, funny, insensitive, bitter, sarcastic, sincere...
It just wouldn't be right without it.
on the internet?!
Here? No way!
Some people forget that they are speaking to real, live human beings, with feelings, like THEY have. They say things they wouldn't dare, if you were sitting across from them.
I think it all depends on how you interpret the answer? If the facts are their, and they can back it up, why do you take it so seriously? If a person comes out and verbally attacks you and does not answer the question, then I can understand. No one should do that. It's rude and very unkind.
We're all different (thank goodness). Also, it depends on what sort of mood people are in. Some days I feel like being serious and other days I feel like being silly. What does it matter?
The same reason why there is always a class clown.
You expected something else???
why are there so many whiny *****'s on this site?
I know.....why can't people ever just give a straight answer?
You make me laugh HD
