Always hostile?
 
I joined this site a few days ago and wandered into a thread. After reading about a jillion pages I aksed a question and immediately got attacked. I just went with the flow and kept reading. I posted a couple of times to the same thread, but nothing rude, just asking things back and forth.
This morning I have some kind of message telling me to go to my own website? What's with this? I do not have a website, I was joining here to be able to communicate with people on issues that affect the Indian community.
What's up? Is it always this hostile? I just wandered into a conversation and got attacked. Is this how it always is?

Most of the hostile threads happen in forums other than CHIT CHAT due to the subject matter. Hang out in Chit Chat a little bit and you will meet alot of nice people. Chit chat is rarely hostile in any form. Welcome And Enjoy.

I had hate mail my first week or so out here, and just for asking a question.
I admit I jumped in where the entire thread was getting disrespected, but I'm just wondering if everyone who got caught in that cross fire got slammed too?
Thanks for the welcome and heads up ~PathWalker~

What happens in that forum stays in that forum. The thread has been closed. So you kinda got caught up in a wild one. I dont think a thread has ever been closed over here in chit chat. I do hope you enjoy chit chat. More people post over here. once you are in this forum: its addictive and hard to leave,:lol:

Well, I wouldn't say there's NEVER been any threads closed here in Chit Chat. But not that many.

Welcome anyway, Urbandn. Not everyone is hostile at powwows.com. And I resent that term!! JOKES :tongue:

urbandn....it all depends on subject matter, the questions you ask & of course the content & vibe of the thread....like you said maybe you came in at a time when a thread was getting heated, maybe you said somethin that pissed someone off....thats the beauty of these boards you can pretty much say whatever you want.

POST ON MAN! no worries....hate mail is nothin new around here!

~pathwalker~ 07-14-2005 10:48 AM

NEVER SAY NEVER! Huh, WYO? :lol:

WELCOME URBANDN!!!!!

wyo_rose 07-14-2005 11:39 AM

:hysterica I'm only hostile when there's a good reason.

Anyway, I went over to read the closed thread and it was just getting good, then the whole thing got deleted. Not reading fast enough tends to get me hostile too!

urbandn 07-14-2005 03:02 PM

Well, ya look back at it and it's almost funny--hell it is funny. I just came in with the wrong question to the wrong person, I guess. I get the feeling I'm not the only one who has ever asked the wrong thing of that particular person, LOL. I was really just trying to follow along with what the point was. Wasn't important I guess, ayeeeee!
Anyways, thank you all for the warm welcomes. It's nice to know I don't need a flak jacket to come around!

Urbandn first off hello, It's okay to ask a question,your entitled to. I have been pounced & thrown as well (lol) just be careful not to get caught up in groups. The internet is alot like High School with clicks. I tend to talk to whomever as long as I like them & think their cool. I have become really close with one person on here infact we have exchanged numbers.There are lot's of nice pple on here. The internet is liked the world a mixture of both good & bad.

Last I 'm preety sure I no the Thread you are talking about (smile) & I had a disagreement with this person as well. They are really nice!! You will see on another thread perhaps. I think it was mistaken Identity thats all. As far as the hate mail in your box,I asked a moderator about that. Let a Senior Mode know & they will let Paul know. No one should be subject to that.
