Dude, what's your problem?

Question Posted Wednesday July 6 2011, 2:32 pm

The title asks it all. I don't get it; why does someone your age get so much enjoyment out of trolling up people's questions? Do you really have that pathetic of a life to where you have to make fun of people who have genuine questions and concerns they need answered? This is a website where ANYONE is free to join, so there are obviously going to be some crappy questions. But why can't you just bypass those?

I hadn't been on this site in two years, so I recently decided to look at all my past questions, and laugh at how stupid I was. I asked a question on this site about three years ago. I was a stupid freshman girl asking love advice or whatever, (Not cliche at all, right?). Anyhow, your answer to my question was, "You're overreacting.", and I had to laugh. I was curious, so I looked at your column. You have tons of questions you have answered, but most of which are you making fun of them. Which I have to say is quite strange. I mean I laughed at a few, like that "Nazi Joke" one, but some people really needed help, and you just made fun of them. You don't have to answer over 1,500 questions with answers like, "No.", or get over yourself, crap like that. So again, I'm just wondering, what's your problem?

Your threshold for trolling is laughably low; how exactly does giving extremely blunt answers that are stripped of the usual fat qualify as trolling?

You said it yourself. You were a stupid freshmen girl asking for love advice. Why are you so wounded that I told you what was obviously the truth? That you were legitimately overreacting and three years later you would look back on yourself and realize you were being silly. Is it because I didn't package it with a little pink bow and floral patterned gift wrapping? I give short answers because I don't want to waste anyone's time, least of all my own.

The problem here is not me, it's you. You're upset that I gave you blunt but accurate advice three years ago and continue to give it. How thin must your skin be that you felt so personally wounded that you launched into writing a nicely typed, but poorly thought out two paragraph message to me? Were you trying to be humorously ironic by criticizing me for being offensive while at the same time accusing me of having a "pathetic life," or is hypocrisy a character flaw you can't control?

My advice is only as long as the answer requires; that you're a sensitive person that feels a little vindictive is not my problem.
