Do you respond just to say "Who cares? or "So what?"?

    A few months ago, a celebrity died in an accident. I posted to say the outpouring of emotion was too much for an entertainer, essentially saying "Who cares?". Someone noted that I was showing my indifference to look cool, but that I was actually crass.

    I decided to stop responding just to say I'm too cool to care. Yet, I see responses that don't contribute anything, but just to poopoo on the thread.

    Are you one of these Negative Nancys who respond just to say you don't care?

    Of course, this wouldn't be GT if no one responded with "Who cares?". :dancingbanana:

    Those words could convey a lot, depending on who posts them.

    For instance if anything with a medical or hospital element is posted and @nursetim says these words, I would infer that the post is BS.

    See how that works?

    I save my whatever’s for when I am looking for a particular response, because I know that it jerks some peoples’ chains.

    Long ago, someone's "whatever" might have gotten to me. No longer. I'm a big boy now.

    Not really.
    If I really don't care, I won't respond or post anything. As they say silence can be the best answer.

    If someone responds saying "who cares" you can bet money that another will point out he cared enough to respond.

    In terms of pooping in someone's else's thread, I see it a lot. I have done it myself when the topic is offensive or despicable, because I do care.

    You must be new to forums. I'd wager that >50% of responses to "Meh" threads are.... "Meh". Especially if the threads have nothing to do with the subject matter of the main forum.

    Who do you care for? Certainly not me, and not you. So who?

    Not a celebrity either.

    I come here for two reasons.

    1.) To learn about guns, gun culture and community and to become a part of that community.

    2.) To speak my mind. Because there are fewer and fewer places in real life and virtual life, where you can do so. If no one cares, responds, or responds negatively, that's okay. That's their right. At least I still have the right to get it off my chest, feel better and move on.

    My new phrase with liberal brothers is "Have a nice life" then hang up.
