Yes! Wheaton is closer to Chicago, But it still is more like Southern IL, The people there are not totally City Folks! I Mean there is actually farming around Wheaton! Iv worked in that area a lot and also around Tinley Park, Great people in those areas! Iv only been to Chicago once and It was just to BIG for me

Wheaton is closer to Chicago (where I am) than Southern Illinois, I think. I went to SIU for college, which is in southern Illinois. KJM- sorry for butting in. I know that you were not asking me.

Kimmie,

Since I am more of an emotional person who makes no apologies for it, it bugs me when people want to "f" with people. When I say bother, don't think that I sit home and cry or even get angry about it. I actually pity those people because their lives must be pretty pathetic.

Ah, I see. Then you would be talking about what message boards call "A Troll", a message board troll is a poster who ONLY posts to piss people off. We had a few of those here a while back and they eventuall either got kicked off or just plain left.

I will say that there is the occassional poster who UNINTENSIONALY pisses people off and come off looking like a troll. I've been that person before on a different message board not on SparkPeople.

I just don't like posters who make statements and then never qualify them. Just post their angst and run....ACK!

Oh I know what you mean. It is also called "being the devils advocate" lol. The way I look at it now is that the internet can't bother you unless you let it.

I am not talking about posts that honestly want to know someone else's opinion, I am talking about people who have nothing else better to do with their time than to rile people up. People can call it what they like (causing people to think is usually what they hide behind--nothing wrong with that), but if the sole reason is to rile someone up, that is pointless. But that is jmo. To each their own.

Lachstasia: That would be me. I like to think I'm inciting and provoking thought. Rarely do I post something off-the-cuff and without QUALIFYING it. Now THOSE folks, who do THAT, frustrate me.

Maki34, those are the people that I am talking about. Eventhough, I do believe that there are some that start topics to peeve people off but I never take the bait.

I get more upset when people don't realize that post are for sharing ideas and comments. That doesn't mean we are all going to agree. Then they start to attack or to insult the ones that don't agree with their opinion. Can't we just respect eachother's point of views and have civilized discussions?

I totally agree. There are those that thrive on creating discord.

There was a topic not to long ago I believe that was on this team about frustrating topics. I am more annoyed by frustrating posters.

These are not the people who I don't agree with or who don't agree with me. I realize that we are all different but it is the ones that seem to go out of their way to incite, be difficult, etc... that annoy me.
