Default WOW Is It Just Me???

Is it just me that when I read WOW then a statement takes it like How dare you say that. I know every board it different but it seems here WOW does not mean how excited I am but WOW you are wrong and should not even post here...


Yes I know I just state my answers bluntly and that irritates some... I am what I am...

I do not get offended easily so it is whatever ( do not like that phrase either LOL)

really I am not trying to start a fight today either LOL maybe I am bored

I guess I haven't read enough WOW posts to have that reaction. I tend to use WOW in a positive manner so I also tend to read it that way.

I don't read that much into a comment like wow, to be honest. I don't know of anyone who uses the word "wow" as a negative expression in real life.

I tend to use WOW when I'm surprised, either good or bad.


1. Wow, that is a beautiful dress!
2. Wow, I can't believe you just said that!

Maybe you are mis-reading someone's intent. I have used Wow to begin a statement on here but it was never to insinuate that I think another provider is wrong about something - it is mostly used in my case to express disbelief at how DCP's act like: Wow, I can't understand why they would expect so much special!

Wow I have no idea what this is about.

I take more offence at the misuse of the word "whatever"

I like "really" as a question! Negative use....."Your food is all over the floor! Really?" Or positive use....."You did it by yourself? Really? Wow!"

It's the "wow. just wow." phrase that sounds so sarcastic when used on this forum. I always read it as if someone's shaking their head in disbelief that someone would think/write whatever it is they're responding to.

Agreed! "Wow, I love that picture, DCB!" OR "Wow, did i really just find you sleeping in your pack 'n play w/o pants and a diaper?!" (Yep, both of those just this morning, too )

LOL

Funny, just yesterday I responded to a post and put Wow. At first when I read this, I thought I said something wrong in that post and I actually asked myself if the person whom I was responding to would take it the wrong way (it wasn't in a mean way, I was just surprised at what lengths they had to go through for something..the Celiacs post). I had to go back and look...lol
