If you treat people here how you would in real life...and how you would also wish to be treated...I think we’d all be happier.
this is something i agree with completely, yet it's also the thing That makes it even more dangerous.
i.m.o. these "trolls" are not as much the issue.
poisonous people can be evaded simply eith an ignore button and solved quite easily.
but it's the people that latch on to you, make you feel and believe they care for you and see you as their best friend that can cause the real damage.
of course not everyone will hurt you and not everyone is a bad choice of friend.
but there are those few that make you love everything about them, and in the end leave you with nothing at all.
if i need to pick an example i can tell you something that happened to me....in a very small nutshell.
i loved my best friend, and my best friend was chasing someone else.
she stopped chasing her, and eventually told me that we would be together.
after weeks of keeping it low, we finally got together, making me the happiest person alive.
3 days later i got dumped, she told me she still loved the other person, and never even loved me at all.
she proceeded to, not talk to me.
push me back as "just a friend" instead of best friend.
lied to me about never getting in a relationship again in 3dx Because she is now with someone else.
all while she was engaged irl and married her bf a few days ago.
and just so much more i don't want to explain "again".
these are people that don't take in to account that they might be seriously affecting someone's life and Messing things up really badly for them.
but in their mind, they did nothing wrong, or it were "just a few mistakes".
though the person at the other side is becoming depressed or stressed or ill or even suicidal.
the problem lies in people understanding that this place needs to be taken very seriously and with caution.
if you don't but make promises such as love and true friendship, things are going to turn out very badly.
maybe not so much for thst person, but for the people that person hangs around with.
my original statement stands.
be careful, treat it with caution, and if you need help, Don't be afraid to ask
