Is it rude to inspect people?yes or no?

74 replies 767 views Edited Apr 3, 2014

Ever since they added the inspect feature to our avi's ,i have heard mixed feelings about it from ,"sure its fine better to have them inpect than to chase you all over asking you all the time where you got something" ,to "jerk always be inpecting me its creepy and i hate it" to "its rude and annoying" but . when your unable to find a particular item and you ask the person wearing it where they get it you get rude sometimes just downright insulting comments like " find it your self you noob" or  a out right lie like " they dont have it in the store anymore " come to find out some much time later that its there. so personly the feature saves time and from being interupted with tons of questions that cant' possibly be answered in a second because my wardrobe is so full that it would take to long to find anything .that is if one of my friends needs to know about something i was wearing yeaterday .i think that out of kindness asking someone "may i inspect you seems kinda creepy in itself "so how do you casually inspect someone with out  it being weird ?

I found that this issue seems to create so much sighs,grunts , grrr's and lots of running away. i like the feature but i to have some inspect etiquette concerns. what are your thoughts? please post here

I personally do not mind when people inspect me, but i would rather side with the group that is against it, for other reasons. It really is something that should merit everyone having an option under social settings to allow everyone/no one/friends only automatically.

Personally I have no issues anyone inspecting anything off of me, although I do admit I miss some of the casual conversations I would have if someone asked me where I got something.

If I wish to inspect purchase something I tend to ask first, only to be polite, but if someone in a conversation and there's a lot of people about I might sneak an inspect in just so not to unnecessarily disturb them.

I don't mind if anyone inspects me but like anything else, it depends on how its done.  If you step between myself and the person I'm conversing with, thats rude. Otherwise, inspect away.

I think if they ask I'd be okay with it. But if they just come and inspect, I take it as a compliment. Because i made an outfit they might want.

No it's not rude. Asking would be nice but for me at least it's fine if they inspect and don't ask.

Asking somebody to inspect me is personally fine by me, but I don't mind it overall.
