I used to have an account in f-list. I decided to shut it down because I found rejection and rudeness by many people I thought shared my interests. It didn't happen once, nor twice. It happened too damn often. And so I think it was a good idea I quit. The bad times greatly outweigh the good times I had there.
Recently however I found that one of my best online friends was treated by another friend in a way I consider pretty rude. I am their mutual friend yet they didn't seem to know each other.
I have been there before. And I know how it sucks. Also I'll keep the names private because I don't want my friends be judged by what I think of this situation.
Interestingly enough, the other user was also a friend of mine and had some drawings I made in their profile. That disappointed me. I praise tolerance, manners and patience amongst people, but I see my words reach deaf ears, or blind eyes.
I had to side on behalf of the other friend, I just hope I have taken care of this business and it doesn't escalate more.
I'll have to keep my eyes open, even in a site that brings bad memories to me.
