All the time,I am usually pretty aware of other peoples feelings, sometimes I think I care too much about hurting someones feelings, unless I'm really pissed, then watch out. That doesn't happen to much though.

constantly, i feel that everything we do, everyday affects someone somewhere and we have a choice to have a positive affect or negative.

Ever? More like pretty much constantly. A gentleman always considers how his actions will affect others. Besides, I work with the mentally ill, it's imperative under those circumstances.

Most of the things we do have no effect on other people. Most effects we have on other people are effects of their own making. People let things affect them negatively, when they should be shrugging it off. Our behavior shouldn't change on account of those people. (Except in the case of people who are understandably sensitive: kids, the mentally ill, etc)

I have to try not to because I am disabled I like to blame my inadequacies. I have learned not to think about it too much. Normal people don't understand me, anyways. Besides that, often is it impossible for me to detect my own actions. People think of me as eccentric, for a reason. And in this society, it's oh so obvious that people are all at once sensitive and insensitive, in the wrong ways.

People who are affected by eccentricity are only bringing it on themselves. Their own behavior is affecting them more than yours.

Anyone who contemplates the effects of every single action, all the time, is being overcautious and neurotic. I get a feeling people are answering to their own favorable appearance here.

Honestly, I get that feeling too. I was very honest with my answer. If people really stop and think about it, I don't think that they consider other people as much as they think they do. To always consider other people's feelings before you do something would take too much time and energy.

Speaking for myself, I don't actually stop to think about it all the time, it's more like a built in thing, part of my personality,having manners and being tactfull doesn't mean your are neurotic.
LindaH Bronze Star Survey Creator

Having built-in manners is a good thing. Neurotic is when you actually worry about something that's pretty much harmless, and how it might affect someone.

I have it as part of my whole being. Built in. What ever I do, as my intent, "for the best for all" it doesn't mean they (others) will perceive my actions as fair. It's a universal affect and I agree that if someone is not happy they are missing out.
LindaH Bronze Star Survey Creator

You can't account for every possibility. There are good and bad potential outcomes to everything, even taking out the garbage. I see no reason that a kind, well meaning, harmless person needs to stop and consider their actions at all, except the very few that may turn out to be honest mistakes.

It's good to consider 'what's best for all' but sometimes someone's got to lose. It's not always going to turn out best for everyone.

In the universe, everything is perfect in the moment. you said it previously when you said that every one has a right to be upset about someone else's actions, even tho the other person meant well. If someone did something and I thought I lost something, than maybe I need to refigure my priorities. I don't want the responsibility of being a bad guy, but again I don't want the responsibility of being the fairness police. I am merely wanting to go to bed with a clear conscience knowing I did the best I could.

Unless we are talking about that skank thief who stole my bid out from under my nose at the last 25 seconds left on e-bay. Freaking skank thief. frown

Well, I was forgetting to watch, tired of paying more by getting into bidding wars and didn't feel like setting my alarm at 3am to get up and watch an auction to the end.
RGirl
(reply to cloudhugger) posted 14-Mar-2007 7:16pm  
I do it because I'd forget about the auction until it was over and to late or if the auction ends some ungodly hour like at 3am. I had actually set my alarm for in the middle of the night to be watch an auction to the end. I hated it when people did it to me and I do feel guilty but I'd just had my heart broken too many times. Don't worry, if you don't bid on vinyl records you won't run into me.

Huh? The second part, I'm dense. What do you mean? Because it sounds judgmental.
cloudhugger
(reply to RGirl) posted 15-Mar-2007 7:51am  
It is somewhat. I'm human, I get angry, I get pissed off, and I might even retaliate. But I won't contribute to what I think is a negative trend. If a group is doing something I don't believe is right, I'm not going to give in and join the group to protect myself or get back what I lost, it just creates more chaos. ANd the groups are able to continue doing chaos because the masses let them do it. I can't even imagine making it illegal, or immoral or even judgeable, it's just something people do that they think is ok. If people steal from me, as an example, I would be pissed. But I hope it wouldn't turn me into some kind of monster. An eye for an eye only makes people blind. Is that a judgement?
RGirl

And did it seem like to you I was attempting to recruit you? Because I only stated why I did it. You see it as stealing? Go ahead and think yourself above me, I don't care and you're probably right. I am a horrible person because I snipe. Put me on the lower rung of the ladder, the lower totem of the pole, not like I haven't been there before.

Isn't that kind of risky? or do you give it a price it can't go over?
RGirl
(reply to LindaH) posted 15-Mar-2007 6:44pm  
You give a max bid. Some one can still outbid you if they bid above what you have put down as a maximum. That part of it isn't any different than simply bidding through ebay. You put in a maximum and win if no one else goes over or lose if some one does go over. What it does is puts your bid in at the very last remaining seconds so the other bidders, hopefully, don't have a chance to outbid you. It is more effective and reliable than using ebay's proxy bidding. The idea behind sniping is avoiding a bidding war. Bidding wars can turn a $5 record into a $50 record because, usually, two bidders and caught in the bidding excitement. By waiting to the very end you avoid bidding wars and paying inflated prices due to bidding AND avoiding shill bidding, which is when a seller uses a different account to bid on their own items in hopes of attracting bids and causing bidding wars.

An auction that is listed for 7 days is open for bids for 7 days to the second. Any bid placed during that time, even the very last second, is a legitimate bid. I pay a fee for each item I use the service. Luckily, more and more records are listed as Buy It Now, which I prefer.

Well, I'm guessing you have classic rock mostly. I'll get those if I find something I'm interested in at yard sales and stuff so I don't spend a lot of money on those. I look for 80's pop and punk, mostly. That doesn't mean I wouldn't be interested in classic rock, just depends on what you've got. Female band or female fronted bands are my main thing. If we're talking classic rock I'd say Heart, Janis Joplin, etc.

I'm ranting about your post talking about how you wouldn't do something just because everyone else was doing it, insinuating that you are better because of it and like I was some how trying to talk you into doing it, going on about how you would never do something just because other people said it was acceptable. Also, insinuating that I would.

"I can't control what others do, nor do I judge. I just hope I never act in a way I don't agree with because society deems it ok."

"It is somewhat. I'm human, I get angry, I get pissed off, and I might even retaliate. But I won't contribute to what I think is a negative trend.

This part is interesting- can't even imagine making it judgeable....something people do that they think is ok?????
"If people steal from me, as an example, I would be pissed. But I hope it wouldn't turn me into some kind of monster."

First you claim that you don't judge, which is impossible, everyone does, and then you proceed to use language that signifies a high level of judgement.."I" would 'never' do such a thing attitude. You were being a bit cryptic but I got the gist of what you meant.

What else can I say, I state how I feel about a situation and you rant all over me telling me how you feel about what your opinion of me and what I am saying, you read into what I said pretty harshly, there's nothing to argue, if that is how you think I am and how I feel...well that's how you feel. I never claimed to be better than any one else, that was your opinion. By the way, I'm not better than anyone else.

Your words were so cryptic I had to read into them to make any sense of them and what I came up with didn't feel very good. I was ranting about your statements, not you. By responding I was trying to get you explain what you meant but it didn't seem to be happening, just more confusing stuff. I would never consider you an uppity person and I was surprised by what felt like harsh judgement of me on your part.

Or

My brain isn't functioning 100% and what you said made perfect sense but my brain isn't letting it through. Either way, I'm sorry. I should have known better to not mention the sniping. I already know most people have negative feelings about it. I don't feel good doing it but I do anyway because, just because, and that is where you said you wouldn't let something turn you into a monster. I'm not a monster because I snipe.
