Not particularly, and yes – at least, almost always.

Brian1946's avatar

There are about 2 or 3 here that I don’t like.

cockswain's avatar

Everyone on here I’ve ever disliked usually disappears after a while not because of anything I do to them

Mind you I think some people on here are enormous nerds.

Mom2BDec2010's avatar

@cockswain Thats pretty odd. O_o I’ll be watching you. haha, kidding.

wundayatta's avatar

I don’t think there’s anyone I actively dislike. I used to think there were people I always disagreed with, but then they’d surprise me and say something I agreed with. The only people who have ever been dis-civil with me seem to be gone.

mangeons's avatar

Yeah, there are some people I don’t like here. I just choose not to talk to them.

Fred931's avatar

I’m here to remind everyone that they do and will always have someone to hate on Fluther.

Symbeline's avatar

I don’t ’‘dislike’’ anyone, but there are some people I’d really rather not talk with, whether we agree on shit or not. Besides I can’t dislike someone I barely know, if know at all, ya know?

Neizvestnaya's avatar

No, No and yes. There is a particular jelly I love most of their comments to other people but they’ve been particularly vicious to me and no, I don’t know them irl. does it make me sick I can’t help but give them GA to stuff when they treat me like shite? Oh wells.

tinyfaery's avatar

What a bummer thread. This is worse than a popularity contest.

Mom2BDec2010's avatar

@Fred931 I don’t hate anyone on Fluther.

timtrueman's avatar

I have to steer clear of irrational people or I’ll get very frustrated. If someone is rational I don’t have a problem with them since we can talk about disagreements or agree to disagree.

Loried2008's avatar

I don’t dislike anyone. I can disagree with a person in one thread but the very next one we could feel exactly the same about. The only people hard to tolerate are the ones who have closed minds and expect everyone to feel the same as them about a subject. Mega annoying…

FutureMemory's avatar

@tinyfaery You took the words right of my mouth.

bob_'s avatar

1. Yes.

2. Yes.

There’re been people one here that I’ve wanted to smack around quite a bit but on the other side of the coin, I’m sure some people on here have wanted to smack me around a bit.

I sometimes have a problem with reading words because of the context I sometimes put with them. Most of the time on here, I just assume people sound like this as they type and that they don’t mean anything bad by whatever they say.

AstroChuck's avatar

Just that upstart AstroChuck.

DominicX's avatar

There are definitely people I frequently disagree with and yes, I’d say there are a couple I dislike. Not enough that I loathe them or anything, but I just prefer that they don’t ever talk to me. :)

(And just because I frequently disagree with someone doesn’t mean that I dislike them).

El_Cadejo's avatar

Yea, there are a couple people here on fluther that are just cranky ass people that seem to have a stick permanently shoved up their ass

ill refrain from naming though.

YARNLADY's avatar

@AstroChuck Me too

No, I disagree with several, but the only ones I actively disliked are gone.

chyna's avatar

No, I pretty much like everyone.

FutureMemory's avatar

@DominicX No wonder you’ve never replied to my PM’s.

josie's avatar

No.
There a couple that are easier to disagree with than others.
But dislike?
No.

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

I think I like everyone. I definitely wouldn’t say that I dislike anyone, though one or two people rub me the wrong way.

@cockswain I don’t know if I’d dislike him personally but I dislike his username.

cockswain's avatar

@Mom2BDec2010 He wasn’t likable at all. That wasn’t actually his user name, I’m just making fun of it because he sucks so bad. He used to say things about how we need to replace the Mexican immigrants with Asians because the Asians were so much more useful and intelligent. I could really go on for a while.

bob_'s avatar

I don’t like @Vunessuh.

She insists on wearing clothes when we Skype ~

Kayak8's avatar

I don’t actually KNOW any of the people on Fluther! I can read what people have to say and I may disagree with how they think or how they say it, but the fact remains that I don’t KNOW anyone on Fluther (well, except Delirium and she is a sweetheart). People can present themselves in a variety of ways. How I am on Fluther may or may not be how I am in real life (I honestly don’t know).

I do like to help people and in real life a lot of people ask me questions so that part is very similar. But Fluther has taught me a lot. For one thing, I have had to accept that everyone has an opinion even if they don’t know jack about the subject. That has proved to be a valuable lesson in real life (it doesn’t seem to be much different). When I accept that what people type on Fluther is just their opinion (and a couple people actually know stuff), then what they type is fine with me. This is not my real world . . .

This is a fun place I go for an escape, to respond to questions and to see how other people respond to questions. I can’t really dislike people I don’t know.

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

I don’t dislike people, but I do dislike their opinions on here.

cockswain's avatar

@bob_ If Vuhnessah actually looks like her current avatar, she’s as good looking as I’d hoped someone as cool as her would be.

kenmc's avatar

Looks at self~

Dog's avatar

I like everyone. :)

Until they spam or troll

Pied_Pfeffer's avatar

Nah, I’m happy with the diversity of personalities. As for answers from someone that I always disagree with, there probably would be if this site was limited to one particular topic, like politics or religion. Thankfully, Fluther isn’t like that.

I sort of even miss spotting Pink Panty Guy cropping up every once in awhile.

bob_'s avatar

@cockswain What, ugly people can’t be cool? ~

kenmc's avatar

@Dog Wanna buy a hand bag or purse?

cockswain's avatar

@Brian1946 Another great example.

@bob_ When someone is cool and good looking, that’s even better.

wundayatta's avatar

If anyone on fluther actually did dislike someone, I’m sure they’d be an equal opportunity hater ;-)

Trillian's avatar

Nah. Not realy dislike, though sometimes I holler at them while I read their posts. I get whatever it is off my chest and move on and forget about it. There are a couple who remind me a bit but I don’t lose sleep over people who disagree with me. They’re enitled to their opinions.

TexasDude's avatar

There are only one or two that I actively dislike, and there are a few that I can think of off the top of my head that make me facepalm or cringe with nearly everything they post.

Jabe73's avatar

Disagree with, yes. Dislike or hate I would say no. Who on here could anyone actually hate another user? I’ve read alot of posts (unless I’ve missed something here) and for the most part I can’t see anything (outside of differences in opinions on a certain topic) that would cause someone to “hate” any user on here. Isn’t that a little immature?

Seaofclouds's avatar

I don’t think there’s anyone I always disagree with, but I have disagreed with people many times. I don’t dislike anyone on Fluther.

TexasDude's avatar

Ah yes, and there is a single user that I universally disagree with…. literally.

mammal's avatar

no i’m quite shocked that people harbour such resentment, it all seems so tame. it’s not like they are physically in your face every day.

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

I can’t think of anyone that I disagree with regularly, either…. Quick, someone start a fight with me!

TexasDude's avatar

@TheOnlyNeffie, the PS3 is better than the xbox 360, and the earth is six thousand years old.

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard Holy crap, you know me too well…

bob_'s avatar

@mammal How is it “such a resentment”? There’s a big difference between disliking and hating.

jrpowell's avatar

I hate and I keep a list of people I refuse to help with computer problems. Homophobia and racism gets you on that list. But I am sure you wouldn’t want help from me anyways.

Your_Majesty's avatar

Is this question is really allowed to be posted on fluther? I think it’s not a good idea to attack other people’s reputation here (even though you think they’re bad people). I have to say that there were some people that I used to hate here but later I found out that these people are actually good people with misunderstood behavior. I appreciate every disagreement and rational conflict here but those who have no toleration toward other people and attack others to satisfy their personal satisfaction wouldn’t be my friend,EVER. I prefer not to mention their names.

iamthemob's avatar

@Your_Majesty – I don’t think any current users were mentioned by name – the one that was is gone (and it sounds like the user needed to be called out)

Your_Majesty's avatar

@iamthemob So they’re not part of this community anymore? Thanks for your information! I didn’t know about that,but is that give us the right to harass their ‘legacy’ here?

iamthemob's avatar

@Your_Majesty – well, we all have the right to be “that guy” regardless ;-). But if it gets out of hand, that’s what the mods are for…

augustlan's avatar

[mod says] Some posts removed due to naming names (even past members).

Auggie says: There are a few that I am not terribly fond of. And probably one or two that I nearly always disagree with. I still give them a GA when they deserve one, though.

Loried2008's avatar

@Fred931 Aww I hate you too ;)

JilltheTooth's avatar

There are a few that I try to hate, but then they make me laugh, or are sudenly insightful and compassionate, or say something that touches my heart. Sucks the wind right outta my sails… I’m so confused

Cruiser's avatar

First impressions seem to make or break how I perceive a jelly and almost every single time I form a bummer negative impression of someone, down the road they either redeem themselves or I see I simply mischaracterized them. I have found all in all, everyone is here to just have fun and goof around a bit.

OpryLeigh's avatar

I don’t dislike anyone but there are a few people that’s posts often make me roll my eyes!

CyanoticWasp's avatar

There are some questions I really hate. This is one of them.

Seek's avatar

^ Mostly because if you actually answer it, you’ll be modded.

cockswain's avatar

How ironic of you to say that.

ucme's avatar

No, words on a screen baby….words on a screen!

cockswain's avatar

Then can we actually like people on here? I like you ucme. I really like you.

bob_'s avatar

@cockswain Exactly. If one cannot dislike “because it is the Internet”, then how can one “like” anybody?

ucme's avatar

@cockswain Well yeah course we can. I mean liking comes easy, to me at least. It’s a positive thing yes? Wheras energy spent on disliking someone we’ve never met or are ever likely to, seems to me to be an excercise in futility. Oh & I like you too by the way!

bob_'s avatar

@ucme Energy spent on disliking? It’s not like you make a voodoo doll of someone you dislike.

ucme's avatar

@bob_ I don’t know, do you? Negativity is what I meant, emotionally speaking.

bob_'s avatar

@ucme I don’t. Not since I ran out of needles anyway.

ucme's avatar

@bob_ Yeah, only dumb pricks would indulge in such antics.

bob_'s avatar

@ucme I KNOW! Have you seen the price of needles these days? Such blatant theft!

ucme's avatar

@bob_ I do get your point…....now go make me an omelette!

bob_'s avatar

@ucme No hablo ingl├ęs.

iamthemob's avatar

@bob_

No me diga. Puedes escribir y leer ingles, no?

@iamthemob Ich habe nicht verstanden.

I am making virtual voodoo dolls and will use virtual pins . . . it shouldn’t cost much.

zen_'s avatar

I come back after more than a week to a negative popularity contest – and it gets more than 80 responses? Well, we’re only human I guess. I, for one, refuse to answer.

bob_'s avatar

@zen_ So, yes?

YARNLADY's avatar

@bob_ you beat me to it

JilltheTooth's avatar

Hi, @zen_ , I wondered where you were.

zen_'s avatar

Right here babes. What’s on your mind?

JilltheTooth's avatar

Just missed ya, that’s all.

zen_'s avatar

Blush.

Dog's avatar

I love how a thread that was designed to be negative has become a love fest. Fluther is awesome!

AstroChuck's avatar

I hate you all. :P

bob_'s avatar

@Dog Why is it negative to accept something? Remember: serenity now, insanity later.

zen_'s avatar

I don’t like myself half of the time. The other half I’m a little astrochuckish.

_zen_'s avatar

^ Jerk.

There wasn’t before, but there is now. I never would have thunk it.
