Wow, a resurrected post from what feels like ages ago.


Ah well, a new response from me anyway...
I recall the commandant at my high school once telling me that you learn as much, and indeed sometimes more, from people you dislike or with whom you disagree, because you learn about the kind of person you don't want to be.
Obviously that's easier said than done, but it's still something to consider.

-Jeremy


ok, but what if we already know we don't want to be that person?

It seems like we have fairly mellow moderators? Am I wrong?


Mellow, lazy, whatever.

Ever tried to participate in a forum where the moderators have heavy hands? The Tascam forums are an example. Try saying ANYTHING there that might find fault with any past, present, or future Tascam activities and your post will be immediately deleted. Do this a few times and you're OUT for good. Consequently, the forums are exceedingly dull. Or maybe Tascam stuff is just kind of dull, I don't know.

Anyway, we can all train ourselves not to tangle with people who sometimes make posts to get a rise out of us. Use the 'ignore' function that is built into your brain.

Could this be a case of culture shock? I had and interesting conversation with a friend who does a lot of gaming and uses those message boards a lot. He started posting on a skater message board and got zapped by a huge culture shock. It seems that the boards he usually posts on are just free-for-alls with the insults. He and his best friends say the most evil things to each other online, but it has nothing to do with reality-it's just fun. So when he started posting on the skater site people were hurt. They said things like "when I see you at the park you are a really nice guy, what's the problem dude, too much whiskey? You might need some help."

Regardless, nobody Wants to be an asshole. Maybe we should have an online intervention with the negative posters. Or set up a new forum called the Hall Of Shame where we move the more useless, insulting posts.

Unfortunately, no.

For all my talk about 'ignore', I actually suck at walking away from pointless attacks and petty arguments. Call 'ignore' an ideal that I claim to strive for. Maybe, instead, we should all start being total pricks in our posts, which would soon cause any truly vituperative posts to disappear into the general matrix of vileness. Here, I'll start: GO SUCK AN EGG!

Suck an egg? Is that the best you can do, fuckknuckle? The only thing worse than your pointless, meandering music is your misguidedly amateurish attempt to record it. You're probably ugly and stupid, too.

How's that? Mr. Green

Yeah, come back with a REAL avatar and say that, in carefully typed text, such that I can peruse it on a backlit screen many miles from where you typed it!
