Sometimes I wonder what happens to people when they sit at their computer. We all have an internet persona and relax and say what we want to. But when does one take it too far? Why do we scrap everything we learned in kindergarten and say such awful things to virtual strangers? Would you say these things to someone in front of you face to face?
After reading this post on my FB feed, I felt abused even though it had nothing to do with me. Is this how we talk to the general public or “friends” on our feed? Seriously, since when is it ok to take this tone and exaggerate the gravity of the topic like saying, 8-10 groups, blah blah blah… Even with my huge list and all the SL groups I am in and all the photographers I know… I seriously doubt it was 8-10 a day anyway. Then, to threaten with randomly reporting your “SHIT?” SERIOUSLY DUDE. All this tells me is that he is NOT to be trusted. Also, I am willing to bet he is a good culprit to point the finger at for reporting in the past when you had no idea who or why would report your image… it was probably him being an asshat.
I scribbled out his name so he can’t come after me because I seriously think he would. But, I just wanted to point out this post as an example of what many people do to everyone behind the safety of their computer screen. People get into arguments on politics and pick fights on FB because they are jealous for one reason or another that others might be better at something than they are. But Facebook Groups are a touchy topic because the way they work is that they are designed as an organizing feature to make it easier for you to group together certain friends and converse with “them.” It is YOUR list of friends that YOU are grouping together for convenience of socially reaching out to them.
It is not malicious in any way whatsoever. You are not making a group to piss people off and spam them. Also, they have the tool right in front of them to LEAVE the group and to BAN any other invites to that group. YOU have the control here. Just LEAVE THE GROUP>ban the adds and get on with your life and BE QUIET. You do not have to write out a status like this and abuse everyone on your list. If I am considered a “snowflake” for my opinion on the matter so be it. I am walking the blizzard in right behind me. It’s high time people acted with common courtesy and good manners while on Facebook. We are not in kindergarten and are not in a high school popularity contest. Many of us in the Second Life community are older anyway in the 40s+ and higher age range. ACT LIKE IT.
This is my blog where I can write and share. I had this on my mind and wanted to bring it up here instead of yelling in a status update. If you have read this whole thing and agree with me… I appreciate it! hehe.
Anyway these are my thoughts and I will stick to them 🙂 But as I always say… keep your friends close and keep on doing what you do. When haters hate on you or blanket all and generally hate on everyone at once.. just remember… they can grab a ladder to climb to kiss your ass. LOL
