Positive Attitudes are Accepted - Please refrain from Negativity

By
Real Estate Agent with Realty ONE Group 65491

Many years ago when I first joined the Activerain network back in January 2008, Robert Swetz was a babe in the woods.

 

And yes Robert Swetz had his many ups and downs with members, being accepted and learning to post blogs.

 

Within 2 years at the Activerain network, Robert Swetz was given the name "Vegas Bob" by some of his favorite friends and associates.

Vegas Bob formed over 20 groups at Activerain, formed over 600 friends and associates, and did his best to fit in.

 

We as members don't have to agree with every ones posts, opinions, etc at Activerain.

 

So that being said, let's do our best to get along with everyone.

 

Please refrain from venting towards each other in posts, comments, emails, etc, in a negative way.

 

We are "ONE" BIG family here and it's very disappointing to view negative comments, posts, etc, and this (IS NOT) what the Activerain network is about.

 

We are all a large group of "Professionals" and let's try our best to act like pros's vs children in elementary school ;o)

Bob,

I agree with you.  Leave negativity out of the Rain and let's just be positive.  Being positive breeds positive results.

Hey VB! I've only been around the Rain for 9 months and I've seen my share of negativity already. As many people that are members I'm actually quite surprised it doesn't happen more often. I think for the most part we get a long pretty well given the hundreds of thousands of personalities, different people, and different backgrounds. A few bad apples can't spoil this whole bunch.

Agreed!  

When I first joined AR, a couple of folks were quite nasty to me.... actually called me Stupid in a post arguing with one of my post, made fun of my profile picture, etc (very junior high school).  At first, I was hurt, then I realized what miserable folks they must be to act that way.  I ignored them and still do (they are still members).  

Thank goodness I ignored the negative and moved on, because Activerain has become part of my family!  

 

“There is a magnificent, beautiful, wonderful painting in front of you! It is intricate, detailed, a painstaking labor of devotion and love! The colors are like no other, they swim and leap, they trickle and embellish! And yet you choose to fixate your eyes on the small fly which has landed on it! Why do you do such a thing?”

Good morning, Vegas Bob. Speaking of LOVE on Activerain, I LOVE your image. Did you do that all by your little ol' self?

As to getting along, 99% of the people in this community do get along... I guess that's why it's so newsworthy when someone signs up and doesn't get along. It's such an exception!

Hey Vegas Bob, I love that painting- it has a Van Gogh quality about it. If you ever felt difficulty fitting in the reason is clear, you're an artist at heart! (Van Gogh might have made more money from his work if he'd had access to the Rain) 

I noted that Bob Stewart commented that he'd featured that post so that the community could bring some issues to the light of day and I think it also spawned some very positive reactions, your post here among them.

Hello Joy ... so glad you agree and VB has been using this painting for many posts at Activerain now for around 4 years.

Whenever I post about the Activerain network, I will leave it at the bottom of the post

Hello Gabe ... Vegas Bob has noticed also along with other members. I don't know if it's because Ben & Bob are back or what, AR members trying to show their colors???

Really not sure, but I do know that members and readers will read and view this type of activity and it could actually be bad for the network

Can I get an Amen!  I posted a video, I thought it was funny, and I could not believe some of the negative posts.. (most were positive) only a few haters :) nevertheless, it seems people do use this as a forum to vent... I just deleted the negative comments... :) In the words of the wise and wonderful Taylor Swift, Haters gonna hate hate hate hate hate... Shake it off. :)

Hello Konnie ... thanks for the stop ;o)

I use to vent some when writing my posts, but never really got off on venting within comments ;o/

People are entitled to their own opinions and if we were to all act like critics, I don't think AR would have ever made it.

Thank you ever so much and the quote or poem really fits the painting. Maybe I will use this in a post in the future with my painting ...
