Do you care so much about others opinion about what you write here on Italki ?
or you always have the full confidence about what you write here . . . without caring about what others will think ?
"Don't laugh . . . & tell the truth (o_O)"
do you always looking for the admiration of others about your opinions & your comments ?
You smile when you got ( Thumb Up ) . . . right? . . . don't lie,
& feel embarrassing & angry when you got ( Thumb Down ) . . . Umm
I think your smile now . . . Gave me my answer . . . lol
ok ok . . . I will stop . . . but tell me,
Why do you always looking for the admiration of others about your opinions ?
I don't care about other people opinion :) But I think "thumb down" shouldn't be on italki.
I think you can usually tell what your opinion is going to get. If there are -in my opinion- bigoted comments getting thumbs up then your comment disagreeing will get voted down. Doesn't put me off.
In Russia we have a saying that reads " The soldier that doesn't dream to become a general is a bad soldier"
I agree with you that it is normal when people try to take more points (thumbs up) because they want to be perfect and on the site the mechanism allows to evaluate your thoughts among participants of the site.
As minimum, it is pleasant to get more positive points that means that you have more supporters than opponents in your position.
Thank you ocean so much :)
I appreciate your comment,
But I want to ask 2 questions here :
how will the Thumb Ups / Downs spread the hate among members, while you can't know who give you a Thumb Up / Down ?
& If I will hate everyone who differs with me in the opinion & gives me a Thumb down,
Do I will accept any criticism or any difference with me in opinion in the real life ?
I think the problem isn't in the Thumb Ups / Downs, you think ?
Thank you Jacky so much :)
I think there are 2 reasons for Thumb Downs :
1- Hate .
2- Difference in the opinion .
but I don't know which one of them was the reason that made someone to give me Thumb down, right?
In my opinion the problem is when some people mix between both of those things ( Hate & Difference in the opinion ),
( I hate everyone who differs with me in the opinion ), Do you have this sentence in your dictionary ?
I think . . . we need to accept the difference in opinion, and before hating the one who differs with us in the opinion, we must think that this person need help ( of course if we completely sure about our opinions ), and start to explain the right thing from your opinion to this person,
If he accepted your opinion . . . great,
If he refused your opinion . . . he is free, right?
No hard feelings . . . as you said, the main purpose for all of us here is to learn and practice language, right?
P.S. ( I talk in general . . . I don't mean anyone )
but my main point here, not why they gives you Thumb Ups / Downs,
but why you cares about that ?
Thank you Marta so much :)
I appreciate your opinion,
but I want to ask you one question :
If you don't care about others opinion, why you think that ( Thumb down ) shouldn't be here ?
