Have you found an anti-you on Fluther?

Asked by SmashTheState (14228points) December 20th, 2011

There’s a person on Fluther I can reliably count on to chime in with an opinion diametrically opposed to my own on every subject. It doesn’t matter what the topic is, as soon as I see her name, I know in advance that it’s an answer I disagree with completely and totally. Have you discovered anyone on Fluther who consistently holds views on every subject in opposition to your own?

Not really, but, I don’t think of myself as particularly rigid on many topics.. aside from a few, so I think it would be tricky to find someone that I always disagree with.

wilma's avatar

I think there might be one, but I’m still open to seeing an answer from them that isn’t diametrically opposed to my own. It could happen!

YARNLADY's avatar

Once, but that user is long gone now. There are several users who appear to be anti-everybody.

rebbel's avatar

Yeah, it is irritating…., there is this one Jelly that always has the right opinion and on top is very kind.

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Oooohhhh…..anti-me? That would be [redacted], [redacted], [redacted], [redacted], certainly [redacted] and [redacted]. Often [redacted].....might be easier to look at those who are closer to me, I can use one hand and not run out of fingers.

PhiNotPi's avatar

No, I don’t believe so. But it would be interesting to learn if there was a jelly that thought that I was the anti-him.

Mariah's avatar

No, I disagree with plenty of different people on plenty of different topics but I don’t think I’ve noticed any one person disagreeing with me on all topics.

Blackberry's avatar

Nope, but I found an anti-fluther. Trolls in abundance.

HungryGuy's avatar

@Blackberry – Yeah. We’ve been getting swamped with trolls in the past half hour or so. What’s going on?

I only want the nice people to reply to my answer.

filmfann's avatar

I did, and I seem to have driven him away.

and you are all welcome

Blueroses's avatar

No, not in the complete opposite, Bizarro World sense. Only an occasional name I’ll skip in a thread because I hate the involuntary twitches that come with accidentally reading them.

Blondesjon's avatar

I am fortunate enough to be a singularity unto myself.

there can be only one

everephebe's avatar

Yeah there’s one jelly I can’t stand, but they’re not that opposite of me, they’re just an ugly-looking little quim. Disagreeing is totally awesome, but being disagreeable is shite.
I mean as long as you are a nice jelly I’ll spread you out with some peanut butter on bread and eat you up. Yummy in my tummy.

Blackberry's avatar

@Blondesjon “Heeeeeere we aaarrrre! Born to be kings!”

Judi's avatar

@SmashTheState , Why would you ask such a question? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It’s not me is it?

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

I disagree with a lot of people on a lot of subjects, but I can’t really think of anyone with whom I disagree on everything.

Michael_Huntington's avatar

Yes and I would like to say to him/her:
So it really doesn’t matter on how you intrigue
You can’t FUCK with those in the major league

Berserker's avatar

Not particularly. I disagree with a lot of what people say, as many do with me I’m sure. But I haven’t located anyone that’s really my polar opposite.

gailcalled's avatar

Anyone who uses “redacted” seven times in a row is probably an anti-me.

gailcalled's avatar

@tinyfaery: Milo here; Please, please say it isn’t me.

tinyfaery's avatar

No way. You are one of my favorite Jellies. I’m your faery gawdmother. I helped your person (Gail) learn how to treat you like the king you are.

gailcalled's avatar

@tinyfaery:Milo here; Please remind Gail not to try to prize my jaws open to see whether my new $$$ food is helping with my tartar problem. The food is delicious; who cares how much it costs?

King_Pariah's avatar

I would like to know who considered me an anti-them. It would amuse me.

incendiary_dan's avatar

Yep. Some of their answers are so comically stupid, I am sometimes agape at how a sane person could justify opinions in such a manner. Then again, I shouldn’t assume sanity on the part of anyone in this culture.

sneezedisease's avatar

Not really any complete opposites of me, but a few I usually disagree with. However, I don’t like to engage people I disagree with.

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

Oh, in retrospect, there was a user that I felt this way about. They didn’t stay very long, though.

Brian1946's avatar

Actually, the anti-me found me. ;-o

zensky's avatar

Pick me pick me.

Not yet.

I hate to admit it, but that’s a great question and well written details.

Bellatrix's avatar

No. Can’t think of anyone. I don’t agree with everyone, and people don’t always agree with me, but that’s how it should be.

augustlan's avatar

I thought so, but very recently we actually agreed! It was a nice moment. ;)

ucme's avatar

I don’t really form opinions on anyone here enough to give an accurate assessment.
Just one question after another to me, with a few laughs thrown in.

JilltheTooth's avatar

I wonder how many people saw this and the first thought was “It’s me, isn’t it?”

There are a few that I pretty consistently disagree with, but no one I’m opposite to all the time. Not even you, @SmashTheState ! If someone is always against me, I’ve missed it, but then I can be pretty oblivious at times…

Paradox25's avatar

I have a few antagonists on here, no matter what the topic, whether it is a serious one or not. I have found these on other Q&A sites as well as in my regular daily routine.

Coloma's avatar

I’m with @Paradox25
I can think of one person in particular, that is amazingly adept at creating epic works of fiction out of the flimsiest bits of info. Some master spinners in this tower of fluther.
If only they would prick their own fingers and fall into a deep sleep. lol

Dutchess_III's avatar

A couple who take the most benign comments and try to turn them into WWIII using big words.

Paradox25's avatar

@Coloma I have no problems with opposition and there are some that while we seem to disagree on everything we have brilliant discussions and they stay civil. I guess the particular users I was referring to were the ones who go out of their way to pick a fight no matter what.

Coloma's avatar


Agreed. My biggest pet peeve are those that distort ones words and put a completely fabricated spin on something while deducing a big picture scenario of the individual that doesn’t exist except in their twisted imaginations.

SavoirFaire's avatar

Nope, no anti-me. Even when I disagree with someone very deeply, we still agree on many of the most important things (even if we disagree about why those things are important or even true). Inquiry is a way of life for me, so I’ll argue with anyone. In fact, I prefer to argue with people I like and respect (“truth springs from argument among friends”). And despite what people may think, I like and respect everyone on Fluther.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I have no problem with debates either. But when they degenerate into name calling, that just disgusts me!

Kardamom's avatar

No, but I have found a few (some that have left and some that are still here) in which I’m truly amazed that they are able to live and function in the 21st century, with their outdated, antiquated and often ignorant views of the world and the people living in it. Things are much different, now, in 2011 than they were in 1911 or even 1950, but from some folk’s answers, you’d swear that either Eisenhower or William Howard Taft was still in office.

gailcalled's avatar

@Kardamom : They’re not?

Kardamom's avatar

@gailcalled And they probably consider This to be a gourmet meal.

gailcalled's avatar

Eisenhower, yes. Taft, probably not.

gailcalled's avatar

@kardamom: I just found this menu for an Edwardian Summer Ball Supper. About the same era as Taft’s.

everephebe's avatar

Anyone who is unwilling to break bread with you just because they disagree with you is anti-fluther in my opinion.

AnonymousWoman's avatar

I believe so. I hope I end up being proven wrong, though. That would be a relief. :)

gailcalled's avatar

@everephebe: Are you the baker? (Would you do a braided Challah on Friday nights? Will Thelma help?)

I have another candidate for my short list; how can someone possibly put these three words together and not fall down laughing?

“NIetszche was horny.”

everephebe's avatar

@gailcalled I am a baker. I planned on doing Challah for x-mas again this year but I don’t have enough eggs for it… And I’m too lazy to go get some right now.

If there is a jelly get together (on fridays or whenever), Thelma says she’ll help if I’m the one who goes out to get the ingredients. I made snickerdoodles with a friend today, and sourdough bread last night.

gailcalled's avatar

@everephebe: to make an authentic Challah (which is really not necessary), you need the ingredients on hand and to have done the baking before the sun sets on Friday night.

Around here that is about 4:45PM. However, I will eat a challah made by the great Satan himself whenever he wants to bake it.

The photos of the challah are gorgeous. (I’ll let you French-braid my hair anytime.)

everephebe's avatar

@gailcalled I should mention that I’m 75%+ goy… 100% authentic Challah isn’t my shtick. :D

gailcalled's avatar

I am wearing the wrong glasses. Is that “goy” or “gay”? Either (or both) is wonderful.

everephebe's avatar

Hahaha. The former not the later. G O Y. But for X-mas, I try and be a little jolly and G A Y too. :D

YARNLADY's avatar

@everephebe My husband went out today for a Today Only Sale on eggs, so now I have to make it.

everephebe's avatar

@YARNLADY Holla for Challah! I love me some Challah, but tomorrow I’m probably going to go get some asian food and go to the movie movies… and call my family. :D Who knows, maybe I’ll pick up some eggs on the way home?
