You know, I do like this site, I REALLY do. It's sort of the equivalent to "Well, I would like my job if it weren't for the customers!" Seriously, some people on this site get so... worked up (for lack of a better term/word) about letters.
It's one thing to comment on the letter (its subject, grammar, etc.), but to "attack" the person that posted it is a bit uncalled for. It's one thing to say "Hey, maybe you should re-write this letter; you do/do not have a point." But it's a completely different thing to say "Pssh, did you not graduate high school? Learn to spell! Geez, you are such a whiner! Get a lifffffe!" Apparently, though, people cannot differentiate between the two.
I am appalled that people older than myself are acting like they have no decency. Oh, God forbid you have an opinion that is different from the masses! Shoot, you'll get reamed out, as well.
Yeah, this is the internet, but it is not an excuse for people to use rude behavior. Calling people whiners, telling them to get over it, etc. Hey! This IS a website for "whining," no? Just because you do not think the situation described in the letter is not worthy does NOT mean the OP has a point. Sure, sometimes letters ARE pointless, where people are just asking for freebies.
Just sayin'. :)
