Lol, Seriously.

People often do strange things, that make us stop and question their motives or sanity.

Today, I got blocked by someone called Hirafu, because I asked a question about Zodiac Sign and the traits of the sign individuals are proud to possess as part of the group. Fair enough, this topic is not for everyone. Personally, I do not believe in Zodiac signs, but as always I have a curiosity in what others believe. After all, isnt that what broadening our minds is all about, being curious about things that we ourselves may hold reservations to?

This is the ''conversation'' that was begun by him.

Hirafu: Sorry but I actually have a brain. I'll leave this dicussion to you imbeciles.

Me: Lol, you just came to have a hate rant here? What does that make you... insufferable and intolerant as well as ignorant? Get a sense of humour.

Hirafu: Get a brain.

Me: Oh, just get a life .... go hate elsewhere.

Hirafu :I'll hate wherever I want. You can always block me. Being blocked by imbeciles like you actually makes me happier.

Me: Lol.. fine, hate here and make an *** of yourself. I dont care enough to block you. Perhaps while you were getting a lot of brains, you forgot the station to humour. Goodbye.

Hirafu: Well I'll block you then so I don't have to see such ridiculous questions in the future.

End of conversation, blocked!.


This makes me wonder, what must he have been going through, to come pick on me, a stranger to him, for asking a question that is really not offensive and amongst the pool of questions, could have easily been ignored. Why do such people come aroung projecting their hatred to others because they lack tolerance?

The simple and easier thing to do, is ignore, what you dont like. Why go and spew out your hatred over something that is really not life changing or threatening. I mean, get a grip.

Phew... Now I feel better having vented. Sometimes these meaningless encounters can upset because I do not understand what I did to deserve this ....... but I am fine now.

Thanks for reading my rant.. whoever reached the end.

Cancel i dont get how people can make a big deal over nothing gad you kept your cool :)

Lol. Thank you. :))

insufferable and intolerant as well as ignorant...I would say it can perfectly be the reason for blocking...I mean, people worry about blocking as if it were cutting their heads opinion? It was a fair, cant help being sincere and saying what I do believe... to me, being impolite, rude or offensive is more than enough reason to block...and I block for the simple reason of avoiding to get bad language or insults, just that. I'm neither approving nor justifying anything in the conversation you posted...not my business...just my opinion.

You do realise that this post was made over 2 years ago right? Yes at one point it bothered me to be blocked because I did not understand the dynamics of how people operated on here. Its good that you are sincere, you are just 2 years late.

No...not late at all...I did see it was from other time...what I mean is my answer would have been the same. Time doesn't change what's written, does it?

Time does change the perspective of things. E.g This kind of thing no longer bothers me. Like I said, when I joined this site, which is around the time I wrote this post, an unwarranted attack like this was not something I was used to. Yes I gave back as good as I got, but the point is, I was minding my own business when he came to attack me.

You said, people worry about being blocked as if it were cutting their heads off - which I think is a bit harsh. You see this is a social site and people have their sensitivities. When we are blocked we question why and it does touch on our sensitivities. And if people say why take a place like this seriously at all then it begs to question why those people end up wasting their time on a site they cannot take seriously.

Now... I would not blink an eye if anyone attacks me or blocks me. You see, I have come to expect it of people on EP. :))

Again, you're not getting me... I mean written words don't change, ok? not the way people change or, abt this being a social site, I was and I am and will be unchanged at all by EP, but that's me, not generalizing, just explaining...don't feel attacked when nothing in my intention abt it... maybe I'm sure abt myself and absolutely complete as a person before entering me EP is nothing different from going into a bar, having a coffee, chatting and then leaving ...but again, that's me. I'd say nobody should ruin their mood worrying about what people may have in mind when blocking... otherwise they would go are endlessly changing...endless liers, etc. just my point of view... tks for your time.

I think we are both not getting each other. Some people are just on different wavelengths, that is all. Thank you.

No...I do get your point...and know why people are here, on the most... not my reason at all. It's quite easy to get your point...clear, but I was just stating my thought, not saying I justify anyone or anything...

May be somebody earlier predicted his nature and about him so might be that a reason....

Just a stupid reasoning am giving while thinking that why did he behave that way....,

It's old I know but I think there are people who just want to almost preach their viewpoint and others who genuinely want to learn, however uncomfortable that might be ... The latter often used closed questions ... The do you agree ... Type of question.... When I hear that it similar I know they aren't after your thoughts, just your acquiesce

I have had the chance to read him. He has inferiority complex disguised as a superiority complex.

Oh yeah. This happened at a time when I was new to this place and not used to such behaviour in people. Something like this I would not even blink and eye over any more. :)

That's good.

I found ur encounter with Hirafu hilarious...

Lol. Good it made you laugh. :)

internet is full of Crazy and dumb people !

Lol. Yes I learnt swiftly soon after. I was still new back then when this happened. Now this is so mild I wonder why it ever bothered me.

do not think a lot a about what happened .... just think about who is the next dub would be !?!

Nah.... I don't really focus on idiots. I am too busy having a laugh. :)

then ... just laugh ... and be happy ... do u know the song "Happy" ?

Not sure if I know the song. Maybe if I heard it. :)

Aah.. thank you. :) Lyrics are nice. Although, having a laugh and being happy are two different things. Just saying.

Some people really just seem unhappy and this makes them feel better. I never let these kind of people get to me as they must really have no life at all.

Fair enough. I do not even blink an eye for such things any more. I guess I am EP hardened. :)

Its not just EP, its the internet as a whole. People know they can be rude and say things they would not normally say face to face and get away with it. It must make them feel better about their boring miserable

I agree with you. :)

While boasting about his brain, he forgot to tell you which sides of his brain is working , and I have a doubt if he really have white cell in his brain. His ranting tells me that he have more grey cell than white cell. He needs to take lots of multivitamin.

LOL. That's hilarious. :)

Haha....hirafu ;)

Lol... something tells me you've also had some acquaintance. :))

He must have thought ladies has blocked me much of times n now its my turn lol ;) :))

some times we might get blocked for no reason and left wondering "WTF" LOL..

You are wonderful. Hirafu blocks almost everyone. His questions show his mind.

Thank you. :)

Yes he blocks when he can't answer or he deletes the answers

I just feel sorry for him.

I reached the end and I enjoyed it. You handled it well.

Thank you. :)

When I first had a convo with him he seemed legit. Now he showed his true colors as an ignorant turd.

Not being blocked yet, but I got a VERY strange comment to one of my neutral experiences too... Indeed, when not used to it, it tends to unnerve you... This online life teaches some lessons!

It sure does because it brings you across the kind of people you would never be meeting in your offline life. :) You'll grow a thick skin to such in no time, just don't let them get to you.

Don't care enough to block but you care enough to butthurt you are. What a champ. So much for being one of the "rare good gems" of EP.

I never called myself anything .... but thank you for leaving your comments.

Newsflash boyo, whitknighting is slightly more repulsive that stealing from a children's hospital. So stop jumping into people's conversation, you poor excuse for a ******.

Demonizing the opposition, wanting to eradicate those who think differently than you, rallying into violence. Isn't that what the Germans did circa 1939? Blocked because you're disgusting, flagged for promoting fascism.

Some people are just plain stupid.probly should be in the mental ward.i got blocked by a 19 yr.old woman day befor yesterday cause i said i wouldnt have sex with an under age girl.said she had been screwing older guys sense 14.i dont play that crap.

Lol yeah now I find these things funny to observe. It is amazing what can wind someone up and how they react.

Thats the second time i been blocked.i dont know why i got blocked the first

I keep finding new people I have never interacted with, or do not remember interacting with who have blocked me. Meh. :) Life goes on.

It dosent bother me anymore.its their lose.cause i can be a good friend.

Ha ha ha

You obviously did nothing to deserve this. No telling why this jerk targeted you and your question. My sense is that sometimes bullies like this will focus on people like you -- women who come across as very nice -- because they’re cowardly and sadistic. They tend not to pick on people like me because I’m a guy and I don’t always come across as particularly nice. I’m not as much fun for them to try to mess with. I’ve seen other women, including some of my friends, get treated in a similar fashion as you. They also didn’t do anything wrong and are very nice people. Sadly, people like Hirafu are almost certainly a permanent fixture on sites like this. Just try not to let them get you down. You’re a good person and so are the majority of people on EP.

Hey, thank you for your words. I was just so new on this site at that time, it shocked me. Now, this would not even make me blink my eyes. I have been told much much worse since. This is something I expect on this site as one side of the coin. :)

We all have to lose our innocence and develop a thicker skin, I guess. What you described isn't the worst I've ever heard, but it still sucks. Glad you can take it in stride now.

The other day, someone came to my question and prayed and wished for a terrible death for me. And he described it.... in detail. That shocked me for an hour or so and then I recovered. Before EP, never came across such people. Now, I expect such. :)

That is probably the worst thing I've ever heard of on Q&A on this site. I did see someone say something similar to that on another site one time. Hard to imagine what someone gets out of talking that way.

Feeds their ego when they manage to hurt someone else. They are full of bitter hurt and anger. And lash out in the worst possible ways. :) Life for them must be hard.

Your explanation makes sense. It must really suck to be them.

:) I think so. I now have to go, thank you for this. See you around.

You're welcome. Talk to you later :)

"The other day, someone came to my question and prayed and wished for a terrible death for me. And he described it.... in detail."

If someone says something like that to you, not only should you block that person but you should flag the post so that EP will see it. People like that should be kicked off the site.

it really is ridiculous sometimes isn't it?? i find that most of these wackos don't even want to discuss their differing opinion either…they have their agenda and their is NO changing their minds!!

Lol, this was when I was new, naive to EP ways, with fresh bright eyes pondering over EP. And I got hit with this. Today, this would not make me think twice and I certainly would not write a story about it. I know not to expect manners and humanity here. :P Lol.

haha oh yes…EP veterans understand this COMPLETELY!

I think he just want to boost his ego, and nobody seems to care.

All his responses that I've seen so far is like that. I pity him!

Yes I have seen some of it too. Oh well.. whatever floats his boat. He is full of hate and rage.

I think that guy smokes plastic bags, and never shakes the sh it out beforehand.

Hahaha! I like that. :))

Experienced responses of milder nature made by only one person over the two consecutive questions I posted here. When she asked for clarification or did a remark, I gathered that it was her way of finding an outlet to express her bottled up anger or just egging somebody for a fight due to her emotional disposition. I responded politely and didnt give her what she wanted from me. :-) You know, what is worse than retaliating is to kill these people with kindness.

Eventually, I learned that. At this time I was so new here, I could not understand this behavior. Now, this would not make me blink twice. :))

Love it

would you believe me if i told you i have been blocked by more than 10 guys because of my avatar pic

The world if full of strange and unstable people thats not counting maybe 50 or more i blocked just because first messages i got from them was im a sl -- because of my picture

YEP weird people indeed makes me wonder how they get thru the day aftee they log off the site

Lol. Meh, these things now amuse me. :) And yes I believe you, I've come across strange things on this site. :))

I have already been blocked by people while I was smart and so... Sometimes people even send me several Pm's and after that "blocked"... Strange but... now... I don't take time anymore to wonder myself what could be their motivations ! :-)

This happened when I joined this site, totally unaware such behavior could exist ... now I would not bat an eyelid for this. :)

So true ! Me neither but I wonder how people can think that they can start to talk with someone and after : Blocked ! As if in real life you could start a discussion with someone and 1 second later be teleported in another place ! :-)
The worst thing : once blocked you have no right to answer anymore of course :-D I admit it makes me feel strange about people but I'm still new here on this website ! (And Thanks a lot for you who added me ! )

You're welcome. :)

I'll never be able to understand actions like these. Such ridiculousness! I totally do the same thing, as I too allow myself to get all worked up...... especially when I've done pretty much NOTHING wrong. Thanks for sharing :)

Thanks for reading and commenting. This kind of thing no longer bothers me anymore though. This was when I was new here and did not know people could behave this way. :)

the minute he said get a brain, you should have dropped the communication. if you were interested in having this bloke explain to you why he is an idiot, do you think the average person in the world, let alone EP has the maturity to do that?
they dont.

Well power of hindsight and all. I think in the 'world' people do not really come out guns blazing this way and it took me back a bit. But we learn and move on. :))

at least half do the blazing guns thing

Not in the circles I move around in. :) I don't see such behavior.

People can act nice and often truly are nice. And good.
But think: lord of the flies, survivor, big brother, the way women are towards other women, the competitive aggression of men, the actual rape gangs that dolphins form. Wot the joker said about humans in dark knight.
I m not saying the picture is dark. No. But if we don't intelligently prepare for the darkness that people can show on their journey through ignorance, we re in for some nasty shox sooner or later. :)

Yeah I got my semi nasty shock and actually learnt quite a bit more about the true colous of people on here. :)

Too bad you ran into a moron like that. I remember a while back they were every where.

I think they are still there, I just got better at avoiding them. It is just a part of online society I guess, where anonimity brings courage and in some cases manifests into hostility and spewing out hatred openly. :)

Keep Asking Questions And Searching For The Correct Answers!!
If we all did this humanity and this planet would be doing much better right now. Thanks!!!!!

Thank you for those kind words. I can't seem to stop asking questions no matter how much I try to stop!

I remember asking my Dad many, many, questions when I was a little kid, he told me to shut up and stop asking so many questions. I never quit asking questions, except to him!!

I hope you never lose that sense of wonder. Someone told me this once and I tell you. When my seeking answers to questions gets too much, I remind myself of this. :)
