I think there's a difference between not wanting to take *some* advice and not wanting to take *any* advice. I mean..if a poster asks at the end, "What should I do?" but it's obvious that they already have their mind made up, it can be frustrating. It really does seem like they were just posting to get the 'I'm right!' reaction...it seems even more so when they add even more details to try to convince people. Whereas, if someone posts for advice and a few people give really extreme reactions, I don't think it's a problem for a poster to be like 'whoa, too far'.
As for style..I've noticed lately a few newish (I think?) posters with really, really dramatic stories. A lot of them, in every thread they post in. It's a little difficult for me not to start wondering at the veracity of some of it, especially when they seem to meet *so* many people who treat them badly. I mean, I have no idea, all of it could be totally true, and I'm not sure if there's something in 'style' there that could change to make it seem a little less questionable. There are also lots of people who have a lot of odd encounters who I never question, so it might just be me!
