Gah, why must people be so rude? The moment I saw the Red Cross donation button up at the top of the page, I practically rejoiced because I thought it was the best idea ever. I thought most people would probably agree, but a peek into CQ&F proves otherwise. >__<

Now, the point of this post isn't to be angry or point fingers or anything. What I want to know, is WHY people are so bugged. The only reason I can think of on my own is that there are people who see the button and WANT to donate but can't (too young, no job, etc) and seeing the button is making them feel unnecessarily guilty. I get that. But I can't think of any other reasons, and I am hoping that by posting this, other people can help me wrap my mind around this. :\

Sorry if this is offensive to anyone, I just wanted to say something about it. >__>

    That was kind of bothering me, as well. The rather unnecessary rudeness that is, not the announcement.

    Nice save Anna. XD

    I guess I should also say that something else that provoked this was that I saw on a Tvtropes forum an image that somebody made that was composed of all these horribly rude, insensitive, trollish, jekrish, generally foul posts about how Japan "deserves" this because of Pearl Harbor. -__- So yeah, any rude or insensitive things relating to Japan are gonna have a higher chance of rubbing me the wrong way. >__<

    It's not offensive at all! But if people do think it is offensive they're basically selfish. People these days. If you don't like it, don't look at it. *rollseyes*
