Why are people so hateful?
I started using this site to help people out, offer some fresh perspective and perhaps also gain some insight from others. I think a community of people with different backgrounds, expertise, experience, etc is a great way to learn and help each other. My particular expertise is in nutrition, and it would seem that when I try to give the best answer I know, there are always those few ready to challenge and belittle my knowledge. Is it fair to get called down on an opinion and of higher education you worked feverishly to obtain? I am finding my inputs less and less helpful and instead feeling frustrated and bullied by people who have never even shook my hand. It's a real shame people have to be so closed down to new information and some friendly advice. What is the crime in helping others? Offering your expertise? Why do people have know-all personalities and everyone else is idiotic? Why so cruel? It's starting to bring out nastiness in my own replies, and I don't like it!
