"LOL what is wrong with you?" (Gaming)

Can you try not being mean? Man, if this forum had an ignore feature, I would've blocked you for that.

Wait, what? You opined that this content creator is an "asshole" (still haven't told us why), Snipe disagreed and essentially also asked why, though a little more directly. How is that "being mean"?

Saying “what is wrong with you” is not only dismissive, but straight up implies that her line of thinking comes from some mental/ideological fault, saying that her opinion is not only indefensible, but absurd. That’s weirdly aggressive (and something something false consensus bias).

As someone who strives to make sure everyone feels respected in a disagreement, Snipe’s reply did come off as needlessly mean-spirited at the end. It’s disappointing, so do better.
