I'm sure that there are plenty of other posts on this subject but there is my take on it.
There are so many people on this site who are just negative towards everyone. Every time somebody asks a question people get mad and say that the person asking it should stop being stupid and realize that its not possible.
These people asking the questions are curious and they haven't gone through and read every thread on these forums, so they don't know these things already. They just want to learn like everyone else here.
There are also people who just say that everything is not possible. Honestly I want to know what these people believe is magick, because everything that I have experienced in magick they say that it's not possible. Yet when someone says they have experienced something people just say that they want proof. Where is the belief in others.
I understand it for some things, such as people claiming to be mermaids and stuff. That I would require proof to believe, but other things such as certain spells working. How are you supposed to show proof of that, record yourself casting it and then wait with a camera for the spell to take affect.
There are just some people on here who just make me so mad because they are just downright malicious to newcomers because they don't know the "obvious" things, think back to when you started studying magick and all of the questions that you had. What if every time you asked a question you were shot down and attacked for asking "stupid" questions that you should supposedly already know. Not everyone knows everything that you do.
So next time you want to bash someone think about when you were new and take the time to answer their questions in a way that will actually help them and not turn them away from magick because they cannot find someone to help them get started.
There's my rant, it's not meant to offend anyone or to be mean to anyone. It just bothers me that people can be so cruel to those who are just interested in the same exact thing as all of us here. Magick.
