That is not a relevant use of the word obtuse. I think you meant that they do that to intentionally cause annoyance or anger. Kind of like what I'm doing with this reply.

No, obtuse can also be used to say that one is lacking insight. Essentially, that just means they're acting (or they just are, naturally) stupid. It would be obtuse to click YDI on all of the FML's.

a) I wanted to, and b) I am perfectly aware of the common usage if obtuse, it was still used incorrectly. While going through and clicking YDI would be obtuse behavior, it would not be a person's intention to do it to be "obtuse." The intention of the person would be to aggravate people or something similar.

For further clarification, it would have been correct to say "they are just being obtuse" but it is incorrect in this context to say "they are just doing it to be obtuse."

47 - Thank you for finally clarifying that. I get in many heated debates with my english teacher about the use of the word "obtuse", but now that won't happen again. Also, I love you're picture lol

I have clicked YDI on other FMLs on accident on my iPod. The little pop up thing for YDI or FYL are pretty close to each other and you can't click on it to take back an accidental vote.

OP probably lives with their mother / their dad wasn't around when OP was a kid. I'm guessing it isn't a huge deal so OP's dad didn't even think she wouldn't know.

Sometimes when there is a problem, or a child needs a parental talk the mother deals with the issues of the daughter and the dad deals with the son. When i was growing up if my parents needed to tell me something serious my mom would always do it and my dad tended to handle my brothers.
