    well i joined this site about a month ago because i was looking for info about my uni halls etc. So anyway after using this forum for a while, i seem to come accross ALOT of negative posts, and alot of people who seem to be wrapped up in their 18 year old's sixth form 'everything-that-happens-is-so-important-and-dramatic, I-know-everyting-there-is-to-know-about-social-lives' mummy and daddy world.

    does anyone else get this feeling? and get worried that you're going to be stuck living/working with these people for 3 years? after living and working in the real world for 7 years its going to be tough for me to bite my tongue every 5 mintues when one of these precocious pretentious ********* says something they shouldnt.

    damn its something ive not given any thought before, n its really giving me a downer abotu going to uni. :mad:

    Guess what, growing up is about learning to live and deal with people who are idiots. Suck it up or don't go to uni.

    This is the internet, and people are completely different in real life. Honestly, I'm surprised you don't realize this. Although I agree, a lot of people on here are rather naive.

    Is this thread not somewhat guilty of being "negative"?
    This.

    I never understood why people would stay on a forum when they don't like the people on it?

    You're visiting the wrong forums and it probably wasn't a good idea asking TSRers whether they think TSRers are like this. You'll offend those who aren't (including yourself apparently) and please those who are. I think the generalisations you have made in your opening post are pretty harsh and if I met someone like that at uni I'd have difficulty holding my tongue :yep:

    yes i realise this thread is somewhat neghative - in my OP i meant the way in which other people are quick to 'shoot down' other peoples comments, or have a dig at someone else.

    'Triggers' comment is a fine example of what i meant.

    I think people sometimes get annoyed when the same kind of threads keep coming up or when it seems like people can't use a search engine to answer their own question.

    If it means being democratically nice to a load of people i dont like, for the sake of 'being nice' then no i'm probably not. In fact il probably find it harder than most of the 18yr olds coming out of siixth form - at least they already possess this skill.

    How very dare you make a generalisation! Don't you know it's a capital offence on TSR?

    (/sarcasm).

    Yes, some people here are desperate to be in with the first snappy comment and put others down with their Awesome Interwebz Intelligence. It's why I don't make threads any more. Find the forum with your uni in it and stick there, it's what I do mainly.

    Which uni is that? sounds like it's full of genuinly awesome people :yep:

    To the OP. I do agree tha some people are here to get at others however the way you have worded some of your above responses sounds a bit like you are one of the people you are criticising! As for being nice for the sake of it-that's what mature people do. It doesn't mean you have to agree with people's views but it would be nice to accept people's beliefs and attitudes.

    :yes: Particularly annoying when what they say isn't even remotely witty.

    In response to the OP it really depends what subforum, if you're in H&R it seems to have 2 opposites; the people obsessed with offering positive and painfully supportive advice and those who are negative with anything that comes up. I think you need to spend more time in the fitness forum which shines above the other mediocre sections of the site.
