The internet world is a fascinating place.
It’s a place for sharing news, opinions (like this one) and having discussions.
Sometimes those discussions are polite and rational. Often they are not.
What’s interesting is that a person you might meet, converse with, and generally find to be a pleasant, rational individual – can turn into a snarky, petty individual if confronted with the right (or wrong) trigger on social media.
Why is this so?
Is it that rational people are now simply avoiding social media comments because the levels of crazy have hit critical proportions?
Is it that rational people turn into irrational people when online?
Maybe we all just have “that” topic – the one where we cannot stand the other’s point of view and the only response we can bring to the table is to run down the hall with our hands over our ears shouting loudly.
Whatever it is – the internet world is a fascinating place.
