    me personally, depending on my mood, either ignore them and make a mental note not to bother my arse about that person again. or if i asked for their opinion on that particular subject, thank them for being honest. or tell them to fuck off and that their a c u next tuesday.

    but thats just me

    Unfortunately, that answer depends on who said it.

    If it's someone close to me, and I trust their advice, I'll ask them what they mean, or if they could explain further. I like to hear others opinions about myself.

    If it's just a random someone, I'll ignore them, or ask them what they mean. Better to flip them the bird and walk away, then get in to a scrap over something like that.

    If it's someone I hate, I'll tell them to politely suck on several of my orifices, and leave it at that. If they're out to hurt you, then chances are they'll say anything to make you feel bad.

    what if they were anonymous
    and you don't know who they are?

    Presuming it is someone you know, i would call them back, or see them in person. Explain that you are aware of your shortcomings, but then ask him or her to explain why they had to point that out to you and ask what their problem is and that you want to talk his or her issues out with them! If you want to of course!:smile:

    (edit) it seemed this is more about someone wanting to give fair critic so if I trust the person I would probably see if I had anything to learn from it and if i agree I would just say sorry and that I would try to better myself but if its someone I dont trust the motives of I would ignore it.(*edit)

    But If its about abuse, personal attacks ets.

    They usually feed on attention. And as they cant believe anyone would be nice ,helpful or like them genuinely so they go for negative attention witch subconscious in there mind is better then no attention at all.

    Also I think women get the most of this kind of crap and its probably a reverse behavior from what the immature bully really want witch is female attention.

    It just got me to think about the tragic event when a little kid took what he was thinking was a toy gun from his house and shoot a girl in kinder garden. Only it was a real gun. Thing was he liked her. Somewhat related maby even if its kind of far fetched.

    It was on the documentary "Bowling for columbine" for anyone interested.

    Anyway knowing who they are cant be bad. These creeps hides behind Internet where they feel safe but the trues is that its illegal to make threats or harass people even if its over Internet so calling the police is one way if it gets out of hand. Get the Ip:adress if you can then track them down and the broadband company may close there Internet account =)

    Depends on who wrote it. If it was from my ex best friend or my ex boyfriend who are both the biggest assholes in the universe I would either ignore it or write something mean back.

    If it was from my parents or someone else that I respected then I would have felt incredibly low and failed.

    What i would do is find out who it is, buy a AGM-84 harpoon missile on the black market then fire it at their house.

    But thats just me

    I'd ignore it. Could be jealousy? They could just be trying to make you feel bad?
    If they won't even tell you who they are they probably know you wouldn't think much of their opinion.

    I would probably try to find out who sent it. But I wish I could just ignore...

    Ignore it. And when it happened again I'd try to find out who it was. I wouldn't freak out, I'd just confront the 'problem' and be done with it.
