- the most important thing is how and what you think about yourself. In my experience of people I have known who "judge" harshly and without a caring purpose, do so because it's just something they need to do to fill up a gap in their lives or because they have nothing better to do with their "energy". If you feel you are a good person, with integrity and honor, and you feel good about who you are, then that's what counts. Most people who "cast stones", do so, because something is lacking in their own life ... many are very unhappy people who have a need to make others around them unhappy, too. It's like they have an addiction to be negative.
But, don't let them pull you into their realm or let them damage your spirit. Think about who you would rather be around ... a negative person or a positive person? A person who always complains about everything, or a person who tries to look at the bright side of things? A person who plays "victim" and always blames everyone/everything for their misgivings, or one who takes "responsibility" for their life and looks for solutions to "move on", instead of wallowing in self-pity? Just be the latter in all these, and you will be successful in what you do and you will be happy and secure in who you are. But, you also have to be able to take/accept feedback when you know it's coming from "caring".
Anyway, I have seen you contributing/helping people with their problems on this forum, and in my opinion, that says a LOT about you. You get a
from me. There are those of us out there who aren't totally blind to seeing people for who they really are. When you get to that point in your life where you are totally honest with yourself and you know all your strengths and, more importantly, can admit to all your weaknesses, it's normally not hard to spot someone else's.
- Well, the saying "to each his/her own" is a prime example of why you can never have the "perfect" website.
As there will always be differing opinions/feelings about politics, there will always be differing opinions/feelings on what makes a good website.
You may like Picasso, while someone else may like Rembrandt or another may prefer a color crayon drawing by a child. You may not find a particular content/topic interesting, while someone else may find it fascinating, so what one might determine as just "filling up space" may not be that to someone else.
There are many "personal" (not professional/commercial) sites here that people have created to share their hobbies, personal stories, photographs, and just to have fun. I think that it is wonderful that they have put themselves out there (in whatever way they can or know how) even if their websites are not to everyone's liking or the most spectacular in content/design.
Many here are newbies just starting out their sites for the first time. Let's not judge these too harshly, because we all had to start somewhere.
I will say, however, that in my opinion "commercial" sites should (if possible) be a little more professional looking for credibility and appeal. Viewers will tend to judge a company, and may be the determining factor in doing business with them, by how their commercial website looks.
LOL ... I can see that this thread served your purpose of inspiring the type reactions that you were probably looking for.
Unfortunately, you won't change the world out there, but next best thing you can do is to contribute your opinion/feedback to make a positive difference to helping someone create that better site.
But, if all else fails and this world never conforms to your needs for perfect website development ... you have the option/choice to exit out of a site. That, you have total control of.
