Hey guys, I've been having some relationship troubles recently and decided that I would ask complete strangers on the internet for advice because I don't have any close friends that I can talk to about it. Actually my problem has nothing to do with a relationship, its the lack thereof. But now I've even more distraught and hurt than when I got rejected. When I took my issues to an internet forum I did not receive any help at all. No advice, no words of wisdom, no strategy that culminated in a public performance of an acoustic Coldplay song sung in public that would surely win the heart of the girl I pined for. Nothing, nada, zip, zilch, nil. Instead, the only thing I received was mockery. Insults and harsh words were shoveled onto me adding on to the weight of the heartbreak that I had already been carrying for the last 3 years (I've been in love with this girl for 3 years btw). I was shocked and appalled. I was kicked when I was down and salt was poured on my wounds. I guess I was foolish for expecting better from a community more concerned about the score for a shitty block climbing puzzle game.  
 
Anyways, here is a screenshot of my relationship advice thread:  
 

 Bigger: http://i51.tinypic.com/2jamed5.jpg 
        
Do you guys think that it was fair the way I was treated? It was nothing but mocking, death threats and insults being hurled at me. I honestly think that I deserve better than that. I thought that I could find a community of like minded individuals on the internet who would back me up and give me some genuine advice about my situation. I guess that was too much to hope for. I'll never make another relationship advice thread again, and neither should anyone else.

You just earned yourself a follow. Be proud, because only 9 other people have earned that achievement.

Your post does not looks serious. Neither do

Also, what did the admin say?

EDIT: Alright, it took me a second :)

I had a serious reply typed out about how I've seen plenty of good relationship advice threads and how you shouldn't hang out at a place where you get treated like that, but then I read the screenshot.

I dunno if you were being sarcastic or not in this thread, but in all honesty, just because there are some that kick those who are down on their luck on the internet doesn't mean that everyone does that on the 'net.  Those that do are just doing that because they can get away with it due to anonymity.  
 
Personally if I ever mocked someone because of their real life troubles that are getting them upset, I wouldn't feel comfortable with myself.  Some people don't have outlets to turn to whenever they go through bad times.  Sometimes talking about it to people close to them makes them feel awkward.  Sometimes the best advice you can get is from strangers.  I know if I were going through some heavy stuff I'd wish that when I did decide to talk to someone about it, someone out there would be compassionate enough to at least listen and not put me down.
 
It's all about being in someone else's shoes.. because even though it may not be your (in general) situation, you may find yourself in a similar situation at any time.
 
Edit:  Alright, looks like you were being sarcastic.  Jokes aside though man, I know we may see these relationship advice type threads pop up once in a while, but still, I don't see why there should be a reason for people to put those people down.   I don't see how that helps anything.

I hope that post in the pic was intentionally a jab at a specific user on this site, cause if so, that was amazing.

EDIT: I remember you now, so it definitely was intentional.

I'd still like to hear it Raliffe. Perhaps it'll come in handy in the future. Lord knows I need all the help and lemon meringue that I can get right now. 
 
@JCTango: I get what you mean. Even I had to turn to the internet to ask for help, its just unfortunate that some people are just really mean spirited. I'd ask some people I know in real life for advice but somehow almost all of my conversations with people ends with me breaking dinnerware.

A drunk Russian that frequents these forums will wake up in about 4 hours. He should be able to help.

Space camp? Where? Near Venus? Say hi to PixelPrinny for me, apparently.

Yeah things are getting heated here. Might have just discovered a new planet. Its an overly enthusiastic planet with glasses too small for its head.

I feel a little worse that it was an admin leading the charge of insults aimed at me.

They haven't forgotten about you. Part of their sign up process involves them attempting to get you to install a keylogger on your system under the guise of 'games.exe'.
