Hey blogging world,
Today, I wanted to rant about something I will never understand…why people feel the need to be so negative on the internet? I will never get why if people don’t like something they feel the need to bring it down and bring in all this negativity. Isn’t it just a waste of time and precious energy that you could be spending on doing something you like?
A perfect example would be YouTube, where I am convinced the idiots come meet the destructively negative and procreate. On any video, especially popular videos, you probably can’t go past one page without one person either bashing another comment or bashing the person in the video. I don’t get it. Really, is your life so pathetic and pointless that you have to bring someone else down just to make yourself feel smarter? Does the protection of the screen make you feel like you can say whatever you think you have the right to say, regardless of how ignorant or really quite stupid it makes you look?
People use the internet to spread information, entertainment, ideas, and just share yourself. But some people find that for some reason or another they have nothing better to do than be rude and despicable to people they don’t know. For some reason, not knowing someone makes it ok to talk to him or her like she/he is a moron? For some reason, the less you know about someone the more reason it is to treat the person like crap. Yes, it is true that one shouldn’t get upset over negative comments. But at the same time, if someone shouldn’t get upset by what someone else types through a screen…shouldn’t the person typing rude comments check him/herself? Or is that person’s goals and aspirations to be the biggest douchebag on the internet?
Some people make me wonder. The ones that make me wonder the most are those that have nothing better to do than prowl the internet to put someone else down simply because he/she has nothing better going on in his/her life. Invest your hate into a productive past time. Trust me, it’ll make you feel better than trashing someone via “reply.” (And you’ll have something worth while to look back on.)
WHEW. That was a lot. Thanks for listening guys!
Until next time,
