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!.

Lol.

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.

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 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.

Funny...he's still here, àsshatting it all over the place. His self awareness is woefully nonexistent. And being blocked by him is a sure sign of your own sanity;)

Haha yeah he is actually hilarious. When this happened, I was new to such behavior. I've never had it in my offline life. But now I got used to such, and when I see especially this person and what he says, I shake my head and laugh at his delusional hypocrisy. :))

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 time.lol

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.

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. :))

Everyone is wired a bit differently - sounds like this person might be defensive by nature & isn't used to being questioned about what he thinks. Props to you for exposing that.

I would have a hard time seeing why anyone would want to block you though?

Lol.. well I have a foot in the mouth thing.. I dig and dig and dig until I am satisfied. This does not sit well with some. :)

Lol - do you have nice feet?

That just goes back to some folks not liking it when they get challenged on something. It's never wrong to ask questions. =)

Yes I have been told I have very nice feet. I guess it makes it prettier to have the foot in the mouth disease then? :)) And yes... some people do not like being questioned. Sigh. :)

Lol - yes, it does make it easier! And the folks who don't like being questioned aren't worth your time.

You are right. Of course. :)

Sometimes I make sense. =)

So far, I am to see the times you don't.

Lol - give me time! =)

At least he told you why he blocked you, I've had ongoing conversations with some and actually thought that we had a lot in common and good conversations but then without warning they blocked me. Some even deleted their accounts and gmail. WTF? If I said something that offended them then tell me but honestly I just didn't understand. The first time it hurt my feelings as I try very hard to be a good friend and never talk in a disrespectful manner but even so the result was the same. I have moved on a little wiser.

It is cowardly for people to disappear without a word, and unfortunately the world is full of them.

Sigh... or even by taking advantage of circumstances to speak the last word, THEN disappear. Cruel and cowardly.

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. :)

Well EP has all types of people and some we are just not compatible with. If you have any astrological questions let me know I will answer what I can

Thank you. Well I am not quite sure I believe in astrology, it was just meant to be a fun question. And I agree about incompatibility with people.

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. :)

Lol.. its strange coz i find you interesting and wise lady on here :) be blessed xo

Aah thank you. But I realised much later that he just has this attitude with everyone. :) I was fairly new here when this happened. Now something like this wont bother me.

True that :)

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. :)

He will get over it,

Lol.. this story is really irrelevant now. Was when I was still a newbie here and did not know the ugly side of people that anonymity enhanced and spat out on innocent bystanders. :) At least this is obvious and we know where we stand.

It was the same way with me I have been on here along time with lots of good friend and one day people came from no were my friends didn't want me to go but I came back, If you like you can see some of my photos here if you look up lespaulmark, you can see my photos, ;-) That is my stage name,

Would you mind sending me a link? :)

Some people are such idiots! The first question I answered when joining was to a young, from a particular ethnic group, that was asking if she should steal stuff from her teachers desk! People were actually encouraging her! OMG! I replied and kept my thoughts toned down,but Im sure someone will reply negatively to what I had to say!

Yeah, this also happened when I was newish here. Since then I have realised plenty like this person here, who just need to insult another to live another day. :) Thank you for reading and commenting.

He's very manipulative. I think he actually achieved what he wanted, but he failed utterly to help himself. What you did was threaten him. Your asking questions started to poke and prod, or at least he thought. Who knows what he wanted to protect, he could have been threatened because he wanted to control people who trusted superstitions or felt he has figured out life. That is, you threatened his house of cards (which blows over if you sneeze). His life would fall apart if you revealed the weaknesses.

There's also the possibility that he has magical thinking. The stage of infancy can be messed up. Therefor, he did not learn the separation between himself and the universe. So, Zodiak makes sense to him. He doesn't like visiting it because it makes him feel stupid. He feels embarrassed to know that other people don't see this, that which he sees.

There's also the possibility that he's scared he might be schizophrenic. Your questioning because says, "I don't experience what you experience." You may say, "No, I was just..." but the point is, it doesn't matter what you where trying to do, what matters is what he perceived because he obviously didn't ask.

Of all things that could be, nothing was anything you could control. I personally hate it when people don't ask me about what I think or feel about things. That really ****** me off because it means you don't care.

The lesson is to take nothing personally. You should of course consider what the person said to make sure there's nothing you did wrong, but the first thing to do is to objectify the situation. Nobody can look inside your soul and see your weaknesses. Instead, this is his reality, his problems, and he's trying to deal with them (even if his methods are beyond stupid). So, this is all about him, it has nothing to do with you.

I really appreciate the time you have taken and the thought you have put into your comment. You of course make plenty of sense and there is nothing I disagree with. :)

With the very greatest respect,
And I feel you're obviously a v. Intelligent thoughtful person,
I think this is a little over analysis.
Totally on the right track, but way too far along that track.
Your desire to help angelicsmile is wonderful, but this zodiacal fellow frankly doesn't deserve your analytical gifts n powers. By fellow I mean the situation. It's a TTT--- total tempest in a teapot. Having a psychodevelopmental chinwag is helpful in reference to a good many people, but I feel not this guy. He's just so much goo goo and ga ga. Casting pearls before swine...
Surely many will benefit from your therapeutic insights! All the best. :-)

Have been observing similar types at a local church.."insufferable,.intolerant,.and ignorant"
They slag off at anyone not obeying their every dictate..This week it was "non-jews",..'people getting romantic that are not married'..."unclean pigs" etc...Like you ,i go there to see what others are into..Plus draw people and get free bread.
They make me feel unwelcome on a regular basis and i am often offended by what they say and how they say it.
Focus more on the good ones...including yourself of course !!

Yeah I do focus on the good ones and myself. This was a long time ago when such behaviour shocked me and venting helped. I am able to look past these now. Thank you for commenting. :)

Don't sweat it, guys like that are simply dorks.

Oh yeah sure.. it was so long ago. Plus I usually always forget these kind of things once I vent out.

well..the personality profiles have some common attributes of the people sharing same zodiacs....but one should not take a Halo effect from it...
and i dont believe on horoscopes

Thank you for sharing.. but this post was not really about horoscopes. :)

please disregard last line of my previous message....
ok now?
:)

Lol it doesnt matter to me... thats a totally unrelated subject to what this post is. I dont entirely believe in horoscopes but neither do I disbelieve. Harmless fun should not be taken too seriously. This post is about someones behaviour. :)
