'If You Can't Say Something Nice, Don't Say Any At All' -

AMC did a topic about about being RUDE to other on Toluna and other sites not so long ago. So I am following on with this message.

You may have a different opinion to other people but that doesn't give you the right to get abusive to other members. Everyone has a 'right to say what they believe and what they don't' and we all have the right to say so without any fear of people shutting down their views. Everyone has the right to freedom of expression. 'You are entitled to your opinion' just means no one has the right to stop people, thinking and saying what ever they want'.

Just stop being abusive and rude.

Whats even worse than those members who allegedly are not nice are those members who hide behind others skirts after they raise a supposed issue - is there anything worse than running away and hiding rather than dealing with a supposed issue directly and out in the open? Reply

You certainly are correct Maxree it's what Aussies used to do. The keyboard warriors will abuse you for having a different opinion to theirs that's just how the Internet seems to work unfortunately. Many are turning into west coast Americans.
As others have said the nicer people tend to leave, I guess they get sick of the same old tirades over and over.

Completely agree with you maxy if people dont have anything nice to say about another members comments or content or anything at all. Then they should not say anything at all. Toluna is not the same as it used to be. If someone voices their opinion on whatever the subject/topic is and other members dont agree then they should not belittle the member/s who have made their comment. They can however put their own opinion in their own post on the topic. The people being hurtful and rude in toluna don't even know they are doing it. Everyone needs to grow up and act their ages and stop belitting members comments and opinions. Maybe thats why other popular members have left toluna for good. I cant say I blame them. Reply

Outstanding - " Everyone has a right to say what they believe and what they don't " Thats why we have anti vaxxers, climate change denialists, people who believe the moon landing never happened, people who believe that Saddam had WMD's, people who believe in aliens and the best of all people who believe in that invisible being in the sky AKA god - we all know what the results of strong held beliefs can lead to - more pain, suffering death and inhumanity to our fellow man or woman.....................which again leads me to the quote I read the other day:
You are not entitled to your opinion. You are entitled to your informed opinion. No one is entitled to be ignorant."
Harlan Ellison.
Having said that I will agree that all need to be civil and respectful and even show deference when those views are factually incorrect --------------- unfortunately for some its easier said than done and for other impossible

"You are entitled to your opinion". With this comes that you take the respectability and ownership of what you say, be it right or wrong.
When challenged or the other opinion is put forward are we capable to stand by what we promote.
being, " You are entitled to your opinion".
