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.

    Your words; “No one takes responsibility online.”
    Responsibility online? What?
    Your words; “No one feels bad about hurting another person’s feelings.”
    What? Boo hoo hoo. Somebody hurt your feelings OP?
    Your words; “And no one can be taught online.”
    Interesting you say this! So then OP, Explain WHY people post things (a lot of very stupid things) … fishing, trolling, pandering for ideas, opinions and in many cases advice… while you’ve just stated here “And no one can be taught online.”
    Things get dumb and dumber by the day, thanks to posts like yours.

  3. THANK you…..some responses are so unnecessary

    You are absolutely, positively 10000% right!!! Most people on here are asshats. It’s sad to come to the realisation that so many Shoutout Edmonton’s are jerks and so willing to jump down others throats and call names.

    OP: We are kindred spirits, me thinks!


  5. First time on the internet? People suck.

    Most people act when provoked, which happens a lot on this page. I think the OP is confused. I haven’t seen much unprovoked attacks at all. A lot of people can’t fathom anyone having a differing viewpoint than their own, that’s for sure. And we all know the hot topics. Just because, as the poster states, a “large group of people” says something, that makes it right, is asinine. If there’s a comment section for people to post their opinion, yes I agree keep it respectful, but if you start slinging mud expect it back.
