I apparently am really, really bad at it. I have never once been considered a jerk by people I know in real life. I am consistently thought of as a nice guy, funny, intelligent, sweet, and humble... Yet, when I post on GT, I get called a jerk, racist, stupid, train wreck, etc, etc. I thought that maybe it's just the way of the internet; lots of jerks that like to tear others down to make themselves feel better... But, in reading some of my threads that went downhill, it seems it is more of what I type in threads and how I say things that give people the wrong impression. I have a very sarcastic sense of humor that is obvious in person, but does not convey very well in the written word. I will have to stop assuming everyone else is being a jerk and try to analyze what I'm typing and how it may appear to someone that doesn't know me... Anyone else here that has the same frustration?
