I have written before about how benign comments on the web can be flamed by people who seem to not have much positive to say or at least want to make a dialogue. It’s an all or nothing proposition as it comes to ones opinion. People like to live and write their truth but is harshness really necessary?
Perhaps when you blog from your heart instead of other places attached to your body you open yourself up to people who come from negative places. I am concerned about how younger users take the responses from older folks who come in blazing hot in their responses. We are seeing that with the Parkland shooting survivors. The advantage of being on a network is you have the bravado and security of saying whatever the hell you want with very little consequences but you know tragic things happen and they don’t have to.
