Keyboard Warriors/Trolls and Netscum!!!
Almost every time I read a post that allows comments, I prepare to cringe. Even the most innocent posts garner salacious, racist, sexist, disrespectful, unecessary comments. If you say you are depressed, someone says; “no one gives a f***.” Stop oversharing. If you are giving a shoutout to a restaurant, someone says…”bet ya still didn’t tip well.”
The worst part for me though…if your comment has a crap tonne of angry faces and people commenting that what you have said is cruel or disrespectful….why, why, why do people continue to argue? Do you really think you are still right or justified when a large group of people are saying…”Heyyyyy!!!! That was NOT okay!” I mean…give it a rest already.
We come on here with our opinions. Do we post with the thought that someone may have something enlightening to say? Never…we get up in arms, we throw dagggers and stand proudly arrogant. In my 10 years on Facebook…I’ve only seen 1 poster ever say; “oh shit yeh…I shouldn’t have said that! You guys are right…I’m sorry.”
No one takes responsibility online. No one feels bad about hurting another person’s feelings. And no one can be taught online. How sad is this???? I just wonder if all these asshats are like this in real-life and what a treat they must be to the people around them.
