I'm new to SOH, any advice?
Sometimes, when you're reading the comments, you might get annoyed by some of the trolls there. One or two in particular (I'm sure you'll figure out who they are soon enough) are absolutely terrible. When that happens, just take a deep breath, put your phone down for a second, and realize that 99% of the community here is genuinely nice. :)
And vote and comment
Engage with different people with different ideologies. Stay respectful. Listen to what others say. Block trolls. Don't get caught up in VC nonsense. Follow for follow (if someone follows you, follow them back).
Most importantly, be respectful and learn, don't just assume you have to teach.
When you do these things, it's a fantastic place.
Until SOH completes its next update, follow this when typing long comments so everyone can see them.
After making a long comment, you need to hit enter a few times and add a period or other character at the end of the comments.
It will look like this.
Don't take anyone or anything on here too seriously.
I followed because you are on the recommended follow list. Congrats and welcome to the SOH.
Follow everyone at first drop them if they're wacko.
And BTE is a great follow!
Thanks and suppressed is likewise. 😂
Follow different kinds of people. It's no fun just talking to people who agree with you.
Be respectful of other people's views.
The more you comment/participate, the more fun you'll have.
Don't feed the trolls.
Lol good advice. There seems to be many on social media these days. Just bored people I guess
Do what makes you happy and use the ignore on the assholes.
Don't feed the trolls and don't let people tell you what polls to create. You do you! Welcome!
Welcome! Be respectful of others, don't attack people, don't call others names.
If you'll follow these rules, we'll get along fine, as that is how I try to behave.
Follow people that you're interested in. Have fun!
Welcome aboard this is a wonderful community. Just be yourself.
Yes. Don't be friends with Democrats. 😉
Awe spook, this is not a politi-poll. Give it a rest, and help the newbie out with real advice.
Spooky is a troll. Avoid this asshole.
I think you have missed Spookys attempt at humor
That is quite possible, but it failed to register on my humor meter. I guess I better recalibrate it.
I did include the winky face for a reason.
Comment & get to know people as people. Don't be afraid of the ignore feature.
I try to keep things light & fun, as do many others. There are some here more focused on politics. You will find your niche.
What's wrong with politics?
Nothing is wrong with politics, but some folks here on both sides take it FAR too seriously! I'm not here for drama, so I try to avoid most political discussions on here these days. 🙂
Just because you don't want the drama of politics doesn't mean other people feel that way. Don't influence people one way or another.
Just giving my opinion as asked
Poll about whatever you want or whatever intrigues you.
Don't worry too much about what people think.
Republican or democrat
I'm a lefty, but I have an open mind:)
Bert hates liberals.
Welcome fellow dem!
Just do you, and stuff, I guess.
Welcome! Enjoy and comment as often as possible. 😊
Thanks! I will:)
