Crazy question

When someone insults us, we shouldn't do the same because it would lower ourselves to their level. However, is it wrong to wish bad things to happen to them like oh...say bodily harm, financial failure, etc. in your mind? Would it lower ourselves even though we are simply thinking it?

This applies to games too...

You should try not to think that way. Just ignore them, and get over it. Someone who insults you is probably not worth the time.

never respond to anger or an insult with anger

always respond with sarcasm, that's how i do it

makes them much more angry and look stupid at the same time

of course if the other person is physically intimidating this is not recommended

*still waiting for squelch b.net command*

Just don't react at all, that's all they want you to do. Just ignore them and they'll stop 99% of the time, for the other 1% you're gonna have to punch them in da face, jk...

If someone insults me online, I'll do one of two things:
1) respond sarcastically
2) pretend to be an idiot and ask a bunch of stupid questions and see how far I can wind the guy up

Dude, if someone insults you just get over it. Sure I have wanted to straight up smash a dudes face in b/c the way they disrespected me. But I can't cause its the internet. So I just get over it. Sarcasm is childish. Thats why I dont suggest that.

So is insulting someone. Tit for tat, but to each his own.
so you're lowering yourself to the same level anyway...
sarcasm isn't any better than insulting someone, you just feel superior.
what's the point??
just ignore them...

I just like to have a bit of fun with people that insult me. Whenever someone calls me *insert name here* on B.Net, I just respond to them in a sarcastic way, then I'll ignore them and go about my business. If you want to ignore them right off the bat, then go ahead. As I said, to each his own.

If it sounded like that, then let me assure you that I did not mean for it to sound like that. I sometimes respond to insult in a sarcastic way just as a way of expressing annoyance, not as a way to "be better than" the other person.

I eventually get over them, but at that moment, I get pissed off. I kind of ignore them by not responding, but in my mind, I wish negative things to happen to them, which is silly, but if those things happened to them, I would feel good, since it would not be my fault...

Nobody here really answered the question proposed in the OP. Everybody just states how they think one should react to people insulting you, but this is not the question asked. The OP begins with stating that someone insulting you is at a lower level, and furthermore that you can lower yourself to that level by replying with an insult. Then the question is proposed if one would also lower himself to that level by merely wishing bad things to the insulter. I think the answer to this question is different for everyone, depending on one's personal answers to the following questions:

* Why do you feel someone who is insulting you is at a lower level than you?
* Why do you feel you can lower yourself to that level by replying with an insult?

I think the main problem is wheather you think the lower level of the insulter follows from expressing the insult or from wishing bad things to someone else. If it's only the former, thinking an insult without expressing it won't make you lower yourself to the insulters level. If it's the latter however, it will.
Well, that's about my view on this moral issue...

Thank you. I was 80% sure that not expressing one's negative thoughts toward the insulter would not lower one's self, but hey...

I really shouldn't have asked because people might think I'm crazier. (I've been crazy since I joined the OTF dark side...*shiver*)

You are on the wrong message board bro. Try something like "Deep Thoughts about D2" or "D2 Anger Issues". Those might be more helpful. LOL
