Hate is so sad

Started by: oldswint (17)

I do not post very often but something that concerns me more and more is the nastiness in our society and even more sad is that it happens on this very site as well. I hope I do not look back with 'rose tinted' glasses but it seems that society has developed to now air any disagreements with venomous comments and which then turns into violence and ever increasing threatening actions and words. I believe one major factor in this expression of hate is social media which has many blessings for us but sadly can be used to promote violence and trouble (Wigan v Bolton last Saturday). Please can we use this and similar sites to the advantage of everyone and for the good of all rather than promoting ill will. We should not need Admin to police the messages but as responsible citizens ourselves have the highest standards and stand up for good and honesty.

Fully agree with you oldswint. I don't think I hate anyone maybe just a few itches that are difficult to scratch. I think if you can't say/write anything nice then keep shtum - lets be kind ..... yes!!

I will confess to retaliation and giving guidance to the trolls, I have turned the other cheek on many occasion but, I am not strong enough to keep getting picked on and keep my cool, I am working on it and with God's help, I will improve, as long as you three Barstewards keep off my posts,

Given the closing turn of phrase Tom it would appear you still have some way to go.

well said oldswint. I just can't understand the behaviour of some of the people on this site. Why do people enjoy goading and stirring up a bickering fest? why do people respond? why is it so hard for some just to ne pleasant and supportive of others instead of taking delight in causing upset? Having said that I think the majority of people in this group are on the right side but sadly the bad stops them posting.

Totally agree, Kath, people arent going to come on here when there being constantly attacked for having a difference of opinion and standing up for themselves.

and given the full content of your statement Sledge, we can see both your feet firmly concreted in the nasty camp, Its a shame really because I found an olive branch on my rambles in the countryside and I was going to offer it when you bring that free range chicken off your farm that you promised Also, If I may be so bold as to beg a half Doz free range eggs as a token of goodwill , that would go far in tipping the scales of the membership relationship award you seek in the new years honours list,

As soon as I saw this post Tom I guessed at least three people would publicly plead innocence and rush to the moral high ground.

Your name wasn’t top of the list……. but it wasn’t at the bottom either.

No I was not wondering , What did interest me is the nature of the opening post , It shows us that people in general DO NOT want you poking in and causing trouble, Kindley respect the request of the people and have a day off,

Replied: 24th Oct 2021 at 17:35

Posted by: oldswint (17)

I couldn't agree more, berylh. I started this to try and reduce the totally irresponsible 'back biting' and sniping and to encourage responsible posts of help and support, friendship and useful information for all members. I am 87, so an old codger now, but I am still a very proud Wigan lad and I claim that Wigan people are the friendliest in the land. May that continue and let us all play our part - it takes two to tango.

Tedious! It’s downright childish and infantile. Special note, it’s ALL male instigated bickering. I was always led to believe women were the catty claws out sex. From experiencing these so called intelligent male exchanges not so.
