I don't know that it's a matter of taking advice or not. It's more about HOW the "advice" is given. To me, advice is, "Have you thought about a,b,c, or what about x, y, z? Maybe try looking at the situation like this, instead of that." As opposed to, "If you're not willing to stop being a big idiot, quit getting on the internet and bitching about it. Because I'm smart and you're dumb, and my way is sooo much better!" See? One is genuine, while the other is cunty. I have never taken advice from someone who clearly was just inflicting their maladjusted ego on us all to feel superior. Ever. But this is the internet and you'll have that, so whatever.
