Invective & Social Media

by Roger Pynn

I may just have to find a new social network. Everywhere I look people are SHOUTING at each other. The invective is ruining the experience of staying in touch with people. Even people I like and respect are SCREAMING at each other, calling each other things they don’t mean … not even realizing they are ATTACKING.

Walt Handelsman

And if you point out the decibel level, they reply by turning up the volume and HOLLERING back that they are not mad or angry … just SMARTER THAN YOU.

I told an old, respected friend yesterday that the cost of everything on our political plate right now … from bank bailouts to buying up GM and Chrysler to whatever happens in reforming health care and insurance will pale by comparison when the blood pressure of the debaters finally explodes and we have to pay for the cleanup.

Shhhhhhhh! People … whisper, please.

Note to self: you could make a fortune developing software that filters invective the way virus scanners keep out those nasty worms that take over your computer, steal your identity and turn it into an agent of the Namibian lottery.

    People forget how much their online presence is going to affect their future in the modern world. You can, after all, find long-term employment through a Facebook connection. Don’t misrepresent yourself to people, especially friends.
