Be nice or shut up.

Why would you agree with this? You have contradicted yourself... >.>...

Anyway, I don't think anyone will listen to this, I mean, they most definitely should, but they won't :P.

I think being nice was mentioned 1,8756,086,86,5 times before, so I don't think a 1,8756,086,86,6th time will help

Oh well, at least its entertaining to read.

Speak only if it improves on silence, and treat people how you would like to be treated.

Unfortunately, that's not how reality works.

In an ideal world, yes, but when you live on a planet with 6 billion people each with different opinions, ways of life, morals, and views than you're basically short. No one is obligated to be nice to you, me, or anyone else for that matter. In your lifetime you're going to run into a lot of assholes, it's just all in how you deal with them.

You were not put here to impress anyone or treat them so highly if they are mean to you. Talking to/Meeting new people, if they are jerks or just outright rude screw them, they don't deserve your time and probably have problems of their own caliber and just need to be left to themselves. There are over 6 billion people in the world you can find more friends, it may be a bit cynical but that's how I think. In the case of people just insulting you that don't even know you, they are probably anger at themselves for some emotional reasons, and in the end will be left by themselves all alone it's sad really but perhaps that's what they want.

"..I swear half the time they're like that because they want to look cool or be funny ...."

I agree with this. There are people out there that hate on things because they think that it makes them hardcore. Sometimes I think people purposely start arguments expecting to win just to make themselves feel superior and smart. It doesn't make you smart, you're just an ass hole.

^^This.

I'm unintentionally mean to those who are somewhat sensitive and/or insecure about things. I told one of my friends not to worry about her skin because she's so dark no one can tell if she gets a zit, and I didn't see it as an insult because I love her color. I thought she loved it more than me Or maybe she thought I thought there was something wrong with it which, in my eyes, is impossible.

Oh, if only it could stop, but it can't and it won't. I used to think that this was just a teenager thing, but the family living across the street from me proved me wrong. They are so terrible. All they do is gossip about other families. It's so embarrassing.

Experiences make us grow up.
Being treated badly doesn't last forever, in fact I believe it can make you stronger (not in all cases though).
The people who treat you badly will one day grow up and realize that their so-called-jokes are childish.
There are of course adults who still feel that they have the need to put others down but this is probably because of bad self esteem.
Kids and teens do this as a part of social life, I'm pretty sure it's always been like this and always will be.

A LOT of people on the internet are jerks; cowards I'll say. Particularly people on Youtube.
I am disgusted by the amount of hate comments being posted. I swear to God, I'd rather have ALL these people dead. OFF WITH THEIR HEADS! What's the point in bringing other people down?

Most douchebags just ride the bandwagon of hatred just to look "cool". I'm sorry to break it to you, but you do not look "cool". You look an uncivilized baboon.
/Rant.

Having that said, When people throw insults at you, YOU have three choices:
1. Let it define you.
2. Let it destroy you.

3. Or you can let it strengthen you.

Remember, people will always try to drag you down. The best revenge you can do is to be nice. They'll be pissed even more.

People don't usually bother me. What does make me mad is when I say "Hello" or "thank you" - things like that - and they don't say anything back. No, they straight up ignore me. It's like no one knows how to be kind anymore.

It's okay. Without rude people we'd be living in a world of teletubbies.

As strange as it seems, POSITIVE reinforcement works. As I have mentioned, I work in a mental health facitilty, with teen aged boys with emotional, behavioral and mental issues. Of 15 boys on my unit, there may be only 3 who are truly mental issues. The others are anger issues, behavior out of control, or just being a mean little shit that their parrents can't tolerate anymore. I've worked with them for over five years, and have witnesses a lot of people getting the crap beat out of them because they don't know how to give a positive reinforcement to an angry person. I've never been hit, never had anything thrown at me...never attacked in any way.

Once had a guy who was like six feet four inches tall...weighed at least 280...a BIG KID with a very violent nature. Staff was terrified of him. Not me. I'd talk to him like he was my own, and he respected me for it. The day he left the hospital to go to Juvie (becasue he'd beat half the staff up and damaged property into the tens of thousands of dollars) I went to his room to say goodbye, and asked if I could give him a hug. He cried and said I was the only one who ever treated him like a person. So if any cynical persons want to poo-poo this idea off, you can. But I know it works and it's what I use.

But I'm not above telling someone to go f**k themselves. You just really need to know who to say that to. A person with a gun is NOT one of them.
