These AITA (Am I The A-Hole) threads are basically a discussion forum where users post a scenario from their life asking if they are right or wrong in that specific situation. People are supposed to put forward the whole incident as it is without being biased and general people who come across the post have to read it all and then decide whether the person is a*hole or not! It is very important to give a neutral stance on the incident so people can judge it better.
