Im new here to ASK, and I cant help but wonder, most of us are adults I think here. Why is there so much insulting and making fun of others?

I just think we would be more polite here? Not meaning to offend just wondering. Like hating on peoples political party or choices in their life?

We are a family here...we may disagree on one subject but we will laugh and get along on other subjects. There are the occasional few that don't understand that and CONSTANTLY poo their diapers....but oh well!

I have to say ask is like family. We argue, insult, tease even answer questions but at the end of the day we all get along pretty well. A lot of what you think is rudeness is actually one member messing with another member.

Blugoo, okay, pull-ups it is, bahahahahaha !!!!

I have met more people around of the ages of 12-19. I agree there is no need to be rude.

People are offensive over the internet, a lot of times they dont even realize how offensive they sound. Like, religious questions are possibly the worst. People are trying to show wat they believe and it just gets nasty.

I don't like the insults, but if you a very "thin skinned" then this isn't the place to be. I laugh at that guy in the mirror all the time.

Lots of us are very polite, seasoned, and knowledgable. I must admit that if a question or answer smacks of intolerance or racism, I can be quite direct. Welcome to Ask. Most of us have made good friends here, and there is lots of room for humour, compassion, and education. I am in Helixaqua's family.

Welcome to Ask ! There is a lot of that stuff here ! You'll learn to just ignore it and move on . Myself , I stay away from Politics and Religion questions , because there is almost always an argument ! Learn to give helpful votes to people who give you a good answer and avoid the dummies ! Have fun !

I think you're incorrect about most of the people being adults. I usually only answer with a stupid comment when the question asked is unbelievably idiotic. And I try to be somewhat funny when I answer most questions. Some people just may not get my humor and find it offensive. The only thing I get real upset about is when there is horrendous spelling and grammar issues.

Newbuddah, the spelling and grammar on Ask really makes me sizzle, but I am in control most of the time. Humour is the best!

Some people think it is "tough", a sort of macho attitude. Others know it is safe no need of a "tete a tete' confrontation with the insulted person. Still others pick up followers that way.

There are A LOT of underage users on Ask.com. There are teenagers, preteens, and immature adults as well. Seeing as this is an online forum, arguments pop up a lot.

Ask.com is actually one of the most friendly sites you could find!

Because some here think no one else should have their own opinion, funny thing is, they ask us for it, but don't want to listen and only want to argue or be ugly. I just move on, it's not worth the drama, there's always someone else on another post you can be have fun posting to.

I'm not sure that most of us on Ask are adults (literally or figuratively), but like others have said, the anonymity of the Internet tends to make discussions and debates turn into arguments too easily. But even with all the ugliness I have endured here, I have learned a lot and made great friends--even amongst those with whom I have had strong words over particular issues. And I have had many occasions to lol at my computer screen due to some of the witticisms. Thicken up that skin and drive right in! It's a great learning experience!
