One bad apple

I joined one of those neighbourhood buy-nothing FB groups that has generally been really good. But there’s one guy on there who is so overwhelmingly irritating that I’ve left the group because of his posts alone. He’s just such a colossal moron and I wasn’t able to stop seeing his posts or stop him from commenting on mine. Every time I saw his name come up I would physically shudder.

Totally understand your position. Some online groups are fun for a while. Then they become suffocating with the relentless comments, the hyper posting by the same people, etc. I’ve gone dark in some groups. I hope you find another buy nothing type group without annoying types!

So, what you're saying is....

You're the bad apple for not having any tolerance, kindness or the ability to communicate with this person like you're an adult?

I agree with you.

Yet another titillating, outrageous, and shocking/hilarious "confession"

The group is a private one and within the group I can’t decide who gets to post and I don’t have any blocking ability. If you’re in the group you see everyone’s posts. The guy is just phenomenally dumb. The group is otherwise pretty good and there’s a wonderful exchange of people sharing items they are gifting or seeking, and so on. But the irritation from this one person is like listening to a radio station that you like but it keeps playing a song you hate every few minutes. I’m sorry this is a lame confession but it is a confession because I know I should be able to tolerate him but for some reason he just drives me nuts.

It doesn't matter you can block anyone on FB. You know what I mean Karen?
