Discussion in 'Star Wars TV' started by G-FETT, Jul 1, 2007.
Posting personal problems on a SW forum seems like a legit thing to do..
Wasn't the internet made for complaining?
I had to look this up. I'm as flummoxed as I was after watching that anime video yesterday. This seems to be a daily ritual with LACWAC: post something that defies a mortal's capacity for reason.
This will be a new daily game. Confound Barriss.
As far as I recall, this was on the first page of the thread, so I really don't see a reason to complain.
This thread is simply... To be sociable in. Come here and talk about whatever you want, Star Wars or otherwise. There will be no set discussion for this place and the conversation is totally down to you.
And I'm a chronic over-sharer so that's often how I use it. =b
Except when it's a personal issue, it's usually best to keep it to yourself or those involved. No offense intended, but I don't really need to know your issues when it's something personal like that.
Personal issues come up in social threads.
You know that there's right and wrong for any instance, including the internet. Posting issues that are personal and talking behind someone's back is just not right/cool/fair, ect. I'm sorry.
It's also like telling strangers your own issues basically.
Oh yes, God forbid people discuss personal problems in a social thread, especially since we're forced to read and react to each and every post.
There is no need for this comment. All I am saying is that if you are posting personal issues, especially issues dealing with yourself and/or your family, it is wise and better if you keep it to yourself. This is a public place, and as I said before, you are basically telling strangers your own issues. If you want to do that, then fine. But it is pretty stupid and wrong.
I do not know you and you do not know me, so why should I post issues that are private and personal. (Note, I am not saying that I want to, it is just another way of stating my point)
Well, I think we're a bit more than strangers. I'd say strangers have zero idea about one another. And if it made Seerow feel better to talk about a troubling issue and know she has some support, then that's a positive thing.
Actually, no. As an example, honestly no one here knows anything about me except my general hatred toward TCW. You may assume, but that is still very misleading. I do not know anything about Seerow and for her to post issues relating to her family and herself is just out of place and odd, regardless if this is a "social thread" (on a SW forum.) There is right and wrong, and posting personal issues such as that is just quite frankly wrong.
It is not a positive thing, far from it, if you are talking about your issues on a SW forum. Talk to your family, your close ones, those who are affected, but not to people you do not know.
If it's positive for Seerow and she feels home at LACWAC, then that's fine. If it's not positive for someone, they don't need to share their problems, no one's forced to do so. It's really quite simple.
Do you have a life if you think a forum is a home? Honestly, come on now. There is no need to post private/personal stuff on a public forum. There is a reason why it is called private.
Would you honestly like it if I asked you if you have family issues?
Sometimes it helps to talk about things, that's why I have a counselor.
At least you are doing it the correct way.
Yeah, your totally right. I sit in my basement all day and make up stuff to post on a SW forum to get attention. And Tarkas is my boyfriend.
If we feel comfortable at LACWAC, then we don't have a life? Thank you for your profound judgment!
If someone feels comfortable sharing their problems at LACWAC, then that's fine, that's up to them. You obviously don't feel that is the case, and that's fine as well. My point rests.
I know you guys would not like it if I start asking you personal questions here. Odds are, you would get offended and say no, but I guess posting personal issues by yourself is acceptable and okay...
I take it some of us are adults here, but I guess right and wrong is simply out the door anyway.
@akash You misunderstood me, so let me rephrase for you. If you think LACWAC is a home or a "get a way" place for you to post personal issues, then you really need to step back and rethink. I am not your friend nor am I one of your family members. I am simply a poster here talking about SW stuff. I do not need to know your personal issues.
Well if you ever just need a shoulder to cry on GGrievous, we're here for you bro.
Yes, I will cry all over my monitor and force my keyboard to comfort me as well....
It really depends on the person, GG. Some people like to talk about their personal lives online, while others, such as yourself, do not. I understand why you take issue with this particular instance, since this particular instance is a highly personal matter for Seerow and is maybe a bit much for this thread. But she's clearly comfortable with sharing it here. LACWAC, and the disco in particular, is a small enough community that some people feel safe being more personal than hey would elsewhere.
Otherwise why the hell have a social thread? Just to say "hi" to everybody every day? Personal info is gonna be shared whether you like it or not. That's what it means to be "social".
That's why I shared my right and wrong comment. To restate my previous posts, if she feels comfortable, then fine, but it's still out of place and odd considering she is sharing personal information with strangers. Don't just look at the typical LACWAC posters, look elsewhere as well. This isn't a private forum.
To be social is one thing, but when you discuss about issues that are personal, then you need to step back and rethink.
No one poster gets to decide who's an adult and who's not, thank you very much. And no, I did not misunderstand you at all. I do not need to "step back and rethink" at your word. You obviously are not one of my family members and I definitely do not consider you my friend to any degree. Nevertheless, there are members of this forum that I feel comfortable with and if I wish to discuss a problem of mine here, then that is my inherit right as a member of this forum. If this thread was purely for the purpose of discussing Star Wars, then that would be a different issue altogether. I say this for the third time, if someone is comfortable discussing their personal issues here, then that is generally accepted as fine, if someone is not, then no one's forcing them to post personal issues, or read/respond to those of others. If the mods have an issue, then they can make it clear themselves.
