Meta Question

Do you consider that it may be you when people ask about attackers, people who are hated, or creepers?

Asked by Imadethisupwithnoforethought (14669points) January 4th, 2012

Is there a time window of concern when a question is asked about poor behavior on the website wherein you review your own recent and historical behavior?

Do you worry even if you don’t know the jelly asking?

If you don’t, why not? Are you just sure your behavior is always socially acceptable?

Paranoid much?

MilkyWay's avatar

Yes But I don’t tend to dwell on it much.

JilltheTooth's avatar

Yeah, cuz my filters aren’t quite as broad as they used to be… You’re asking this Q about me, aren’t you???

AnonymousWoman's avatar

I might feel that way if I have a “guilty conscience”!

cookieman's avatar

Unless you’re a fresh-baked cookie, you’re pretty safe from me.

MilkyWay's avatar

@cprevite But you most definitley are not safe from me.

HungryGuy's avatar

Of course!

I know that lots of people here would love to put me in a big slingshot and hurl me into the sun :-p

chyna's avatar

@JilltheTooth You’re so vain, you probably think this question is about you, don’t you, don’t you?

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

Yes, I really do. I don’t worry so much about being creepy, but I do often wonder if I am disliked and no one is telling me. I feel that way a lot, actually.

JilltheTooth's avatar

@chyna : Something about Saratoga and a horse…which sounds kind of kinky and interesting…

JilltheTooth's avatar

@ANef_is_Enuf : Except that people here do tell, remember? At least they tell me. Then I offer the mods enormous amounts of money to take away the “we hate JilltheTooth” posts…

HungryGuy's avatar

@ANef_is_Enuf – I can’t imagine anyone not liking you, Neffie :-)

cookieman's avatar

@MilkyWay: :: run awaaayy ::

@ANef_is_Enuf: IMHO you should not worry about that. You’re a great jelly and a very nice person.

AmWiser's avatar

I may have thought about it for a fleeting moment. Then thought to myself WTF!

Fluther post: There is one jelly here who is really [insert appropriate negative word – boring, annoying, pesky]

Internal voice: “Oh shit, that’s probably me!!!”

What can you do? Can’t please all the people all the time. I don’t dwell on it but yes, it crosses my mind.

Uh oh!! This question was in my “Questions for YOU!” It IS me!

everephebe's avatar

Sure, but I would hope that someone would just PM me if they thought I did something off, or out of line. I’m reasonably reasonable. If you think I am being a jerkface-doo-doo-head, lemme know, preferably politely and privately. Cheers. :D

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

Not really any of those, no.

YARNLADY's avatar

Oh, yes, I have even PM’d people saying “Do I recognize myself in your question?”

Blueroses's avatar

Well, they say there’s no such thing as bad publicity.

Seelix's avatar

Nope. I’ve never worried about it. I’ve only ever had a couple of conflicts on here, and one was due to a drunken, squirrel-inspired escapade. The other was someone else’s problem.

cheebdragon's avatar

I dont care what people say about me…..people talk shit, welcome to the internet.

cookieman's avatar

@Seelix and @cheebdragon on the same thread?!?!?! It’s like old home week at the lagoon. Nice to sees ya.

Seelix's avatar

Good to see you too, @cprevite :)

DaphneT's avatar

Is it me? I’d apologize, but I’ve had a strong dose of the ’‘I’m Sorrys” at work so enough for today

CWOTUS's avatar

More often than not. But I just soldier on being the only ‘me’ I can be.

wundayatta's avatar

Now don’t do this to me. I was talking to someone about being pursued by a creeper. I wondered what a creeper was, so I went and asked and next thing you know, I was being accused of asking because I wondered if I was a creeper. WTF?

Dare I find out what people mean when they say they are being attacked? Never mind. I’ve had posts modded as personal attacks. I must be an attacker.

Hated? Oh Gosh! Well, there was just a question about that and almost everyone said they couldn’t be bothered to hate anyone here; it being all virtual and all. So I guess I’m not hated. Maybe not even disliked. I do annoy people sometimes. I do really annoy people sometimes. Sometimes people think I am not kind enough. But hated? No. Not really. That’s not one that worries me.

As to creeping? No. Don’t think so. I don’t have nearly the confidence required to be a creeper. I like to be liked too much. Someone says they don’t like something I did and I’m outta there. I can take a hint. My evil twin Daloon, on the other hand…... ahahahahahahahahah!

Berserker's avatar

I guess so. Nothing really obvious, but I don’t really care, unless it was a friend or a good acquaintance, but even then, how the heck am I even supposed to know? So if they don’t tell me outright, whatever. Thinking or suspecting could hurt or worry me, but it hasn’t happened on here. (that I figured out, in case it has) It did on AB though. Lol.
I do consider it briefly sometimes, but I don’t have enough energy to worry about it lol. Thinking about it though, while I might be a source of someone’s hatred or someone who thinks I’m creepy, I may also easily not be anyone’s source. Unless a person is taking something way too seriously (within reason, not saying that some things don’t warrant important levels of seriousness) and is being too obvious about it, there’s so much stuff about what makes them ask something that would be too hard to pinpoint, unless they themselves specify.
For example, who swears the most on Fluther? If it isn’t me, I’d be pretty surprised, actually. But every time someone asks a question on swearing and the morality behind it, I can’t go and think, oh hey that’s because of me. Maybe it is, but it probbaly isn’t. And if it is, fuck it lol.

My paranoia coach counsels me to just look straight ahead, whistle a happy tune and no one will know I’m afraid.

Blackberry's avatar

During what I now call the “Great Atheist/Theist War Week” in which there was a slew of questions which lead to a fierce battle of the ideologies, I knew as soon as it started that I was a culprit. It was a hearty battle indeed, and I learned a lot. Lol.

Other than that, no. I’ve sent PMs to people, but nothing creepy. And I am aware there are some of us who give non-sugar coated answers, and if people want to say we’re attacking them, well….

Jude's avatar

I probably have a hater or two, but, I truly don’t give a flying fig out of a rolling donut. :)

cookieman's avatar

^^ That should be a new Olympic sport!

Jude's avatar

make that “at a rolling donut”

I certainly am aware that I have had some very irrational emotions over the last few months and that I haven’t always reigned it in and I have said some things that were uncalled for. I always hope that people haven’t built up grudges against me for it, but I wouldn’t blame them if they had. So yeah, I get a little paranoid about some of those questions.

“I certainly am aware that I have had some very irrational emotions over the last few months and that I haven’t always reigned it in and I have said some things that were uncalled for.”

I’ve read many of your posts and they’ve all been well within the parameters of rationality.
However, I admit that I’ve read very few of your posts about jewelry making, so if you said something wacky about setting stones, or bending bands, etc., I probably missed it. ;-p

Mariah's avatar

@Brian1946 Haha! Thanks for the reassurance. :)

zensky's avatar

Just because one is paranoid does not mean he isn’t being followed.

cheebdragon's avatar

Is weed making you paranoid?

“You ever seen the back of a 20 on weed. Oh there’s some weird shit in there man. There’s a dude sitting in the bushes. Does he have a gun? I don’t know man. I don’t know. What? Red team go. Red team go.”
