My First Private Message For The Day!

Last Update: April 01, 2017

Greetings to ALL from Adelaide in South Australia!


As I do everyday, one of the first things I do is check any private messages I receive overnight.

The first one I opened today (Sunday in Adelaide) was this one...

Private Message

Hi steve, Reading your post on Affiliate marketing pissed me off....As a newer in this system, please can you give me some direction....l will be much happy for your help. Thanks

I was wondering how other members in the community would react to receiving this type of message?

Is it just me or should I be feeling different from the way I currently do?

How would you reply?

I don't even know which 'offending' post this person is referring to!

I look forward to hearing from anybody who would like to make a comment...

Thanks...

Steve

Steve,
I think its an April Fools Joke on the part of someone. Your not doing a joke, are you? There have been so many today that it would make sense if it was............The pic seems to be a portrait of someone green with envy. Not sure Steve. Hope it is all a misunderstanding or a Joke. Donna

I wouldn't give it a second thought, There are mixed signals. On one hand they're saying yor post pissed them off. On the other hand they say they would be "happy for your help"

I'd reply with: "All your base are belong to us"

...makes about as much sense as that PM.

And I'm NOT happy to help in this instance...
I don't say NO very often!

One thing I've learned over the years is that texts, emails, etc. can be misread and misunderstood. Sometimes it helps to remember that. A person can think there is a tone or specific emotion attached to an email when in reality there is not. Its just the nature of the beast.
In this case since you dont know why this person was upset it may be best to ask, or let it pass.
Hopefully they see this last post of yours and understand it was all a misunderstanding. Otherwise, let it go.

I agree. It would seem his pissed attitude is directed inward because of his lack of knowledge or direction. I think he realizes he needs help and that is what's ticking him off.

Hmm.

It's written strangely, but the vibe I get from it is not that you said/ wrote something that upset him, but that after reading your post he perhaps realised that he needed better direction, and that was the source of his being upset.

I would just offer to help in whatever way I could.

you already asked my first question lol .... dont sweat it because you dont know. People say things differently, it may have been a post that you put up about something that pissed you off. so in a sense they may be in agreement. If you said something that really ticked me off enough to message you, i would not ask for your guidance in the next sentence
Tell them your not sure what "pissed them off" please elaborate and how could you help them..
