    Dealing with Trolls: Don't Feed Them and Don't Be One
    Dealing with Trolls: Don't Feed Them and Don't Be OneTrolls and Naysayers can be very frustrating and annoying to deal with. They can distract and discourage you from pursuing your goals.Β At every step, you will encounter the naysayers. To be successful in life one must master the ability to...

    #8 Yes, but Brigette does point our (correctly) that '...not all criticism is a bad thing. There is a difference between constructive criticism and personal attacks.'

    I'd add that not everything needs to be said; I for one don't point out every little error in every post, nor do I comment on *everything* I disagree with. For one thing, it's not a way to win friends and influence people; for another, sometimes a person needs encouragement and a pat on the back and disagreement can wait for a better time.

    It is, however, important to be able to distinguish trollish negativity from legitimate, civil disagreement. For the mind is like a muscle and if you feed it a diet composed solely of sweets and compliments, it will grow fat and soft and unable to do its job. Cheers!

    "Negativity is always all around but it’s important not to let it paralyze us."

    Isn't that the truth, on so many levels. I'm pretty good about letting negative comments roll. Well, I used to be. It seems the older I get, the less patience I have for negative BS from people. 99.9% of it comes from 'cyberpunks' who are shielded by their anonymity. The www has enabled disrespectful people to come out in droves.

    Great buzz.

    1. Messrs Flesch and Kincaid should be shot. If they're already dead, they should be shot again for good measure. Ruining good writing one 'that's-too-hard-to-read' at a time. Relegate that to manuals, where it belongs.

    BUT Phil speaketh the truth:

    2. 'Tip for Mafiosi: The best place to hide a body is on line 6 of a 12-line blog post paragraph.'
    That's really funny, Phil. Ah yes, the mobile phone. Wrecking the English language for good.

    3. Some of us (read 'I') really need to be hit over the head with the 'buzz @beBee' thing. I used it when first announced. Do I remember now? No.

    Every single one of us, even if we pretend it is not so, put our hearts and souls into the words we share on this platform.

    It is inevitable that not every piece of writing resonates for every bee.

    Occasionally, we might give feedback of honest intent, that hurts someone else terribly.

    It is not simply enough to ask for clarification or an apology, we must also be willing to accept one, as well.

    "If you chose to become a beBee advocate, you really need to understand that we are participating in a rather unique and radical global free speech marketplace"

    Here's to always trying to understand how we come across and working to understand what someone means. Having the strength to apologize and the compassion to accept a sincere apology.

    From this place of open-mindedness, we will all succeed, in ways we dream about! Close

    #60 @Deb 🐝 Helfrich; you give me courage! I have seen an altered state here (in the little time I AM here!); it's okay to let a little 'freedom' into one's writing. Snipping aside, egos aside, rage aside...we're all in the same place, accidental or otherwise. I've witnessed some truly great thinkers as well as those (like me) of average propensity exert their thoughts which are a perfect rainbow of color! Just goes to show...we all need to bare our own 'gimpness' and that's more than okay - it's healing and wonderful!

    Phrases like "stop acting immature!" Or "When are you are going to grow up?!" are really funny...I can sssure you (as a world renowned expert in Developmental Neuroscience) that with each "tick o' the clock"...(those of who are still alive) have matured (grown up) in accordance with our individual epigenetic trajectory...

    ...the process (defined in fact) as the inevitable increasing probability (stastical "closing in") of our death.

    This is an inescapable truth ; unfortunately when people "yell at you for acting otherwise"... they are engaging in folly...even worse, would be to believe that anyone is telling you such things is saying anything with a basis in reality.

    It's like when someone says: "What's wrong with you; don't you have any "COMMON SENSE?!"...what they really mean (of course) is that they asked you to do something...and you didn't do it the way they would have done it.

    #59 I know we aren't doomed, and I think it has to do with re-storying what virtual community is all about. It kinda started as a way to blow off steam, brag, and shout about me, me, me. Those dinosaurs will die out and the bees pollinating a collaborative hive where all things can be expressed, so long as no one is insulted, will create a fruitful new orchard for all the world's citizens.

    You said it perfectly, @Lisa Vanderburg, there is nothing hard at all to choosing to interact with our humanity and humility showing.

    So. Are we all doomed to failure as social animals on these type sites (think: LI). I truly hope not. It's people like YOU and Ali, and Javier and about 10 others that are keeping this thing working.
    We MUST learn grace and civility in the exchange of ideas - your message is well taken; or we lose it. Despite the fact that I'm not here enough to have any sort of stones in this, this MUST keep going with the standards it started with - humanity and more importantly, humility!

    #107 I understand, @Ken Boddie, but though I experience this I don't seem to be as frustrated by it as you are.

    I just skim through quickly when I first browse in to beBee and put articles I want to remember (and those I don't have time to read right then) into my Aleta's Reads hive.

    Of more concern is the fact that I miss so much from my favourites. There's so much coming in now that I get fatigued before I've read through every single title in my feed.

    I have to rely heavily on being 'tagged' by people who've just published something (the reason I happened upon this post, for example). Trouble is, some of my faves simply don't tag people. I feel a little presumptuous doing it myself, but I decided that being thought presumptuous by some was better than having people who are interested in my posts miss them.

    So, I would like to see improvement in the area of being able to follow the posts of certain bees. Don't ask me what that would be; happily, I'm a user here, I'm not at the pointy end!

    I must have missed the tag notifications on this @Javier 🐝 beBee and @stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand Ambassador for which I thank you.
    I have invested more than a substantial amount of time, effort, resources and a wee bit of money (my Scotts heritage bubbling to the surface) in 5 digitally based start- ups in here in Australia over the last number of years. All 5 have fizzled or died.

    That's business, that's entrepreneurship.

    I understand the concerns expressed by some in the comments below. I have had my own, and questions, conveyed personally.

    On the basis of this post and communications received, I for one will continue to support the promotion of beBee for the foreseeable future and look forward to the platforms update.

    In the meantime, here are some wise words from some wise ones.
    Innovation opportunities do not come with the tempest but with the rustling of the breeze. Peter Drucker
    Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere. Albert Einstein
    Patience is power. Patience is not an absence of action; rather it is timing; it waits on the right time to act, for the right principles. Fultong J. Sheen
    Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races one after the other. Walter Elliot

    I have been greatly impressed, @Javier 🐝 beBee, by the success of this great platform and cherish the many friends I have found here. I do, however, share some of the concerns of @Dean Owen (as set out in his various comments below) relating to the future. I continue to be frustrated by the increasing amount of time I have to spend trawling through posts with which I have little or no affinity, in order to find those I wish to read and pass comment on, and have tried many ways to limit my feed, but without much lasting success. I voiced my concerns in my posts of September and November last year as follows: https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ken-boddie/fellow-bees-we-have-a-traffic-problem; and
    From the subsequently received post comments it appears that many others are also having difficulty with their feeds and consequently are also missing posts from their favourite bees (Fbees). We were then, back in September, promised a great conceptual solution which you called the STING, but there has been very little more to come on this subject since, and the repeated promises of major change continue without fruition. Your above enthusiastic explanation is gratefully received, but perhaps this would be an apt time to reinforce, to your many devotees, a commitment to including the STING at the earliest possible opportunity? πŸ€”

We are but a few travel writers in a sea of marketers so we are critical to helping the beBee feed attract your typical internet user who are simply here to enjoy and communicate. Writers and storytellers like you and the delectable Ken Boddie are precious and I will follow you both until the ink runs dry.

    #103 i would love to if I was certain beBee would still be around many years from now. I fear they have, and are making some major strategic blunders by focusing on building a platform with the content provider in mind where they need to focus on what your typical internet user needs and wants to see. I don't want to wake up some day and find my writings have dissapeared because the plug has been pulled. I need to feel confident that my articles will be there for my children to read many years from now. I hope they prove me wrong. I need beBee to succeed. As such, I sent them an email detailing all my concerns yesterday, but it seems to have fallen on deaf ears.....

    @Flavio πŸ‡―πŸ‡΅ Souza 🐝 Irreverent and enjoyable Flavio! And here is one more from Africa: A lion is capable of capturing, killing, and eating a field mouse. But the energy required to do so exceeds the caloric content of the mouse itself. So a lion that spends its day hunting and eating field mice would slowly starve to death. A lion can't live on field mice. A lion needs antelope. Antelope are big animals. They take more speed and strength to capture and kill, but once killed, they provide a feast for the lion and her pride. So ask yourself: 'Do I spend today chasing mice or hunting antelope?

    It's only saying that LinkedIn is scared of the truth that follows from looking at the data about its influencers.
    It's data that says that many writers - who are NOT LinkedIn influencers - are engaging, instructing and probably helping more people than nearly all ofΒ their influencers.
    I've looked very hard at this data - which tells us about how many people like and even more importantly comment and probably even more importantly share the posts of those who aren't LinkedIn influencers.Β (And I've done the same with the Influencers as well)

    As you, I also have much more followers on LinkedIn (4 times).

    One thing I thrived on was LinkedIn's detailed analytics which is no longer available. I could tell what kind of audience I was reaching and viewed it often. Now I have to simply luck out and get a like from one of my target audience which is not readily forthcoming. Comments are key to who is viewing your posts now. BeBee interactors are generous with their comments, unlike LI.

    #24 I have to agree @Aleta Curry, if someone is called out in a group format, whether it's in front of others at work or on an email and the person who berated 'said person' was wrong, they do need to apologize to the entire group. This is where cliques form or people lose trust. An easy example, when my kids were growing up, I would occasionally call out one of my kids in front of the other. There were times I was wrong, *gasp* and I made sure to apologize to both of them because I knew it affected not only my child I chastised but my other child who was present. I hope that made sense.

    For me personally, I refuse to sqaubble with others on beBee or any platform for that matter. I stay away from heated topics because that's just my preference. Those who choose to join a heated topic they do need to remember things can get out of control fast, if even just one person begins to attack.. others may come to defend and many feelings can get hurt. I love your suggestions because those are great steps to follow in order to avoid confrontation with another.

    I really try hard to choose my words wisely and I would never want to hurt anyone on here. Everyone has feelings and these are good rules to follow with life in general and on the job.

    Comment 1

    Thanks for wishing me a Happy Saturday, Sandra, though it's already Sunday afternoon Down Under; I couldn't get to reading earlier.

    I agree with everything except the part about cc/reply to all. If someone has insulted me in public (and it hasn't happened here, thank goodness) they owe me (or you, or Joe Bloggs) a public apology. That is not to make them lose face, it is so that the matter gets proper closure. That's directly taken from Management Training, every good boss should know that berating someone in public and then pulling them aside later and saying 'I'm sorry about that' is weaselly. That manager is simply afraid of losing face and may not be at all sorry.

    Not that they have to flagellate themselves publicly shouting mea culpa mea maxima culpa over the loudspeaker, but they can simply say at the next meeting or around the water cooler, 'I just want to say that I was wrong in...or I apologise to Aleta for...I've said this to her privately, but I wanted to say it in front of all of you.' Then move on to the next next item in the Agenda or lunch or whatever, no song and dance, and Aleta doesn't get the right of rebuttal and there should be no commenting from the rest of the group unless the situation was so horrible that that has to occur, in which case you need a session with a counsellor.
    Aleta Curry
    26/03/2017 #23 Aleta Curry
    Cont'd from Comment 1

    In the same vein, I think it's wrong to cc people *if they were not part of the original communication*. If they were, however, and you want to say one thing to all of them, they're quite within their rights to 'reply all', otherwise you're being unjust and horribly unfair to the party of the first part.

    I do agree that a better way would be for whoever is in charge to step in and say that this is not the way things are done (making it clear that s/he means the original nasty comments) and instructing the jury to disregard the remarks) Which is of course much the same thing as telling a classroom of children to think of anything except rainbows and lollipops, but there you have it. So what am I talking about?

    The jury will please disregard Mrs Curry's remarks.

    It takes all kinds to make the world. Same with beBee I'd presume. But here one can get away with a lot as opposed to the real world:) The same care/etiquette/civility we exercise while differing in opinion or a POV ought to be exercised here too, in all conversations. Think the person you are responding (not reacting to) is right in front of you and then talk. Even if it is the President himself ;) It is easy being heroic sitting some thousands of miles away from the object of ridicule in a cosy chair behind a PC...but would one do the same face to face, like say in the Trump arena? ;) Everyone likes to be heard. Everyone likes to hear something different (a different POV need not be a disagreement or negativity); said with regard and respect, even camaraderie (depending on the kind of connect already established). beBee cannot become a battleground for old foes from the Atlantis. Ignore-Block-Report-Ban is a good progression. beBee is a fresh start...and a new beginning!

    News is filtered, produced, sanitized and delivered based on Agenda. That you are not hearing of the attacks, violence, murder, rioting, looting, rapes and kidnappings - doesn't mean they are not happening - it just means that the game the handlers are playing want you dumb, culled and complacent to what is going on. Information is a weapon - the 'news' is at best a confetti gun & cheap bullhorn. Signed from a conflict you wont hear about on the 'news' for another year - with an ever growing body count.

    #3 I should let you know, Fatima, that beBee is a rather engaged and intelligent community. Posting spam links in the comment thread might seem like a really good way to spread your content and generate leads but it won't actually help your business. Let me explain why.

    First of all, the link is posted out of context.
    Secondly, the long tail title within the link is spammy and most people will ignore it. Remember, beBee is full of intelligent and thoughtful members who are all over the age of 14.
    Thirdly, content marketing is all about presenting people with quality content and then trying to engage with them. That link simply won't do.
    Fourthly, by posting spam, you undermine your own credibility as a business person. Trust is an essential component for any sale. While you may be very trustworthy and honest, this kind of link and the fact that you are spamming comment fields will cause people to question your credibility. Even if someone clicks on it out of curiosity, they likely won't buy.

    Excellent post! I would like to add the benefits of offering live videos (these can be part of the learning process) in order to increase engagement between instructor and learner / student, answer questions and discuss comments in real time. The students will feel more involved in the learning process and the instructor can customize the topic even more. I am a huge promoter of live video and I always include this component in all my coaching programs with excellent results.

    There is an obvious reason why the anarchists voted for Trump, they were first to know where this is going, and there is his buddy Steve Bannon who actually believes that economics involves 80 year cycles that culminate in a horrific war, that is necessary for the good of people or at least he has made movies with that kind of message. Why would organizations like CNN give up a good thing, in just the rise of Trump and the election process, CNN profits went through the roof. There is a point where listening to what this new administration is doing simply consumes quality of life, It sometimes feels like the "Say Anything to Win" party is the actual winner of the US Electoral College Vote.

    #4 ah, Obmacare - what a clusterf*ck. The marketing cry of this monster is that 42 to 48 Million people in the US didn't have health care.....So they ram the PPACA down the throat of America with the penalties, fines and thuggery of the IRS - they pass it (without reading what was in it) and suddenly only 31 Million are now without healthcare - nearly overnight ...... except they weren't. What they did / and the CBO is complicit in this bullshit - is remove the 11 to 13 Million of 'Illegals' from the count of how many were uninsured because they were not 'eligible for coverage' ......There has been no Statistical net gain in Insurance coverage in over 8 years. Go ask the carriers. I am well in touch with their enrollment and performance numbers. The expansion of Medicaid has been meteroic - but that is NOT insurance and many doctors, clinics, and facilities have long refused to accept those patients - John Hopkins being the most recently vocal about it. http://bit.ly/2nEKYE1 Doctors dont work for free. Health Care in America is a Casino - those lights are one because of generations of suckers before you and next to you, paid - and oftent through their lives (go take a long look at deaths related to medical errors). - I would be happy to have a discussion that involves numbers, performance, stats and historic precedence - because as you all know by now - I grant no currency to feelings. NONE.

    #4 Doesn't everybody in America, who can afford it, have access to health insurance. This is the key issue that's either going to bankrupt or in point of fact kill a huge number of Americans. This is the most incompetent, uncaring administration in the history of your country. Sooner or later, somebody or some group will strike back.
    Phil Friedman
    20/03/2017 #4 Phil Friedman
    I watched an interview today with U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services, Tom Price. It was completely disheartening to see him deflect every question about the currently pending healthcare bill (including the projection that 14 million people would lose their coverage immediately, and perhaps 24 million over the longer term) with absolute politic-BS about how this bill was only part of a multi-prong plan, the other parts of which would follow at some indefinite time in the future. And that the Trump administration is committed to assuring that every American would eventually have "access" (direct quote) to healthcare insurance. What he assiduously avoided answering was what "access" meant, how access would make a difference if people couldn't afford the insurance, and what would happen to those who immediately lost their insurance in the meantime. Either Price is a liar or self-delusional. Hmmmm... sounds like his boss, doesn't it? Good thing California wine is good and still cheap.

    #56 This Jeep was 'borrowed', @Aaron 🐝 Skogen, when on one of my frequent trips to Java. As I stated in an earlier comment below, there are a few Jeeps used for regular tours up Mount Merapi, close to Yogyakarta, where I have family connections, but I'm not to sure how they got there. I fear that the owners know their worth only too well, not to mention that they look after them like pets. Add to this my spotters fee, handling fee, facilitation costs for various officials in order to smoothen the export process, then, of course the shipping charges, and the bottom line is that the bargain basement cheapest mates rates price elevates to penthouse suite price. But, hey, happy to help if you are really keen. πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

    Of course, I'm just one among many, many fabulous women here, but I'll take it!

    Thank you, Javier!

    What a nice surprise @Javier 🐝 beBee! I feel honored to be mentioned with all these lovely women. I'm also glad I've gotten to know so many, much respect! Great photo of the women who work for beBee (with those of you at beBee), everyone always looks so happy and I'm going to guess they are! I'd like to mention @Pamela 🐝 Williams who I've gotten to know very well. We knew each other on linkedin but I don't think we would have ever connected beyond virtual if we didn't have the chance to get to know each other so much better on beBee! Pam has a heart of gold, humor that is contagious and she's full of ideas. I feel like I met someone I've known for years.

Kudos to all of those mentioned above, as well as to those noted in the comment section below. Each one of these female bees is unique in their own special way and helps add value to, and greatly enhance, the overall user experience platform-wide on a regular basis.
    Again, where would beBee be without them? I shudder to think.

    #13 Well stated, @Deb 🐝 Helfrich, and I agree 100%. My time spent on social media doesn't include bullying nor do I want to read about someone's political or religious views. There are several bees that I like and enjoy reading what they have to say, however, if it is a political or religious opinion, I hide it from my feed.

    Regarding someone, anyone, who has a different slant on life from yours, that doesn't make them wrong or make you right?! My motto is, if you don't like it, don't read it.

    Ah the days of dual cassette deck and a screaming upgrade from 14.4 .... I can still smell the charred ether from some of my exploits. Here's the shit about HARD moderation, courtesy of a website that is close to home for beBee. I like their content in that it is written well - but it is rarely supported by anything of fact - any statistic is a feelly mushy ball of SJW blathering prattle that has no source - and the comments are hard edited. So if you disagree with the article - and I often do - your comment will NEVER be posted. The dialogue box - Your Comment is Waiting Moderation is nearly your only interaction with the platform. I have less than a 10% post rate there since the early days of joining. I am not sure if it is universal across the board - or if my brand of perspective has been specifically targeted (I may create an alternate account to test that theory) So, what you end up with - is a 'discussion' where nearly every comment is - "Great Post" or 'Insightful" or the ever present - ditto head quote. Any disagreement with the article is never seen. Nearly any challenge to the author's SJW Virtue Seeking Grandstanding is never viewed, and any retort with facts, evidence, precedence, performance, trajectory predictions and of course personal anecdotal instances NEVER meet the Comment section. It must feel like a Rainbow Brite Glitter Sparkle Enema of Hearts and Flowers delivered whilest riding a Unicorn - because it is nowhere near a C0NVERSATI0N.

    my 2c... when people come together on social media, there's always going to be a degree of disagreement. i am not on facebook anymore for personal use because I didn't want to fall out with close friends who were posting political opinions time and time again that I felt were insensitive. In the end it was just easier to close down my account. And these are people I've known for over 30 years and went to school with. If I had entered into any form of discussion on these views, our friendship would be over by now - guaranteed. Why lose a friendship over social media or political differences? It's just not worth it. If social media is making you miserable, maybe stop for a while. I took a 6 month break recently. I didn't miss it that much, and now I can enjoy it again.

    Ok, this is a compilation of my thoughts on this subject, already published within LI articles.
    Part 5:
    I'm an imperfect person with a bunch of weaknesses. What makes us unique is not our professional successes, social media itself or other trivia. Professional success in social media is a result of our humanity and willingness to recognize what is important and that's nobility. Not only humanity and nobility directed towards our family, but also towards others: "little"- great people in social media, with all its weaknesses. Our social media image must be consistent. What we write is the undistorted image of ourselves. This is one of the truly great manifestations of personal integrity. It is wise to publish only when you have to say something honest, thoughtful and helpful to others. Avoid blatant self-promotion at any cost. Only write about your interests in the field of personal knowledge and expertise. The need to write on social media may be something quite abstract or very intimate, but also a source of money, success and fame. I can not reveal why one should accuse those who might write out of necessity for a little spiritual exhibitionism only. The beauty of social media is primarily reflected through diversity and willingness to accept other people's views or motivations. Writing is the best way for a personal expression of gratitude to ones who read. What is important is the way in which we manifest our disagreement. A good foundation is certainly unquestionable respect of diversity and a very careful interpretation of other people's attitudes.

    Part 4:

    It seems that most of us here have a soft pen. Both β€œengaged” and β€œdetached” writers should make a proper balance. I prefer the latter type. Only activism, propaganda or aggressive self-promotion and pompous self-aggrandizement can be like a sword. Writing is more like teaching and mutual shaping of perception rather than activism. Even when we disagree, exchange of opinions brings us closer. Short-term influence is also short-lived. My idea is to be a support, never an instructor. My job is to point out what is worth. It is not generosity, but the pursuit of truth. Teaching is the most impressive way to help people. All great thoughts have a weird root, that’s why they are great. We can learn from children, they know everything. Only if we have the attitudes, then we can share them with others. It requires courage, which is often incorrectly characterized as a harsh word. The learning process requires dealing with opposing views. Of course, respect and kindness are certainly welcome. Offensive people are often insecure. It is important to communicate with people and to assist them. It is important to build successful relationships and trust. It is important to respect other people's opinions.

    Ok, this is a compilation of my thoughts on this subject, already published within LI articles.
    Part 3:
    I support all dedicated writers, who have not yet earned well-deserved attention. Carefully read the comments and also feel free to promote your thoughts and writing among like-minded people. This is my vision of a fruitful networking. People are not products. People are much deeper than stereotypes. Only if we learn, we progress. We must honor those who have helped us, and then we are "live" once more. As long as someone's pen carries a personal touch and insight, there is a hope that an expression will be recognized as Π° valid, even if it was alternative, obscure or even quite unusual. Insights is the final and primordial manifestation of our spirit framed by thoughts, words and feelings. On the other hand, only the expression of personality was never a real attack, rather a desire to be accepted. "Cogito ergo sum" - RenΓ© Descartes. Only when we are awake, but also a little imaginative, we are able to share with others the most valuable parts of ourselves. I am more prone to self-criticism. Self-confidence is particularly difficult for people who feel things deeply. Any kind of generalization is rather dangerous. To be, or not to be, i.e. mainstream or alternative, that is the question? I choose always what's inside of me. What I have learned is to recognize honesty in people. I think that I've always been able to recognize the noble intentions. This type of recognition, sometimes hidden, is the most important quality of these social media.

    Part 2:
    Mindfulness is a skill that is gained with an age and through practice. Please respect other people's writing, thoughts and dilemmas. In this way you keep reputation and integrity as a writer and also as a man. This is something that is hard to acquire and can be lost very easily. What are the most important values of this social media: constructive dialogue and exchange of good will in a pleasant atmosphere. It is very easy for a writer to surrender in front of the pervasive and intoxicating magnetism of superficiality. It's costly and has unpredictable consequences. That's the main reason why any social media, will hardly become a platform for quality writing. Writing motivation is the most important. Extrinsic writing motivation is provided through the support, human attention and interaction. The process of transmitting messages to the curious reader requires knowledge, dedication, writing skills and fresh ideas. Someone's writing must have color, clear personal touch and scent. It is better not to write at all than to write nonsense. Always, listen to yourself and not others. Writing is an exclusive and privileged activity. This is a reflection of your mind, when it makes sense. In the second case (hyper productivity - I am a "productive" writer syndrome), it's a nonsense. After all, writing is a serious profession.

    Part 1:
    My entire professional career has been built on writing. What's important is to find a balance between what makes money and what makes a business man or academic worthy and respected. Each writer has the responsibility for designating which information should remain within articles. Do not forget that there are messages that can only be divided in written form. Everyone chooses what will write. If we opt for the highly specialized professional articles or intimate articles about our thoughts, we cannot expect great popularity. It is certainly not a measure of quality. You do not need to pay attention. Writing is still our inner needs. Maybe our writing is blatantly trivial to capture someone's attention or imagination. I respect everyone's writing. It seems that sensationalism is what is required. Not at all! Seriously creative writing is certainly deeply spiritual category, that is difficult to subsume under standard forms. I also believe that enough dedicated people, can encourage one's insight, perspective and innovative perception through the mutual writing, discussions and spiritual learning (elevation). What is important is the human interaction as an inexhaustible source of unusual and most valuable inspiration.

    I do have to disagree about the 'Nada, Nothing.' I wrote two posts defending not just @Max🐝 J. Carter, although he was the poster boy, but the right of anyone to be able to participate on beBee, without being judged or disrespected for non-standard views. Many more people demonstrate support for his presence than the few who feel they have the right to veto his participation.

    I have went on record numerous times about the constant, repetitive, demeaning comments of certain parties on this site. Not only are many diverse individuals targets, but they also frequently devalue the activities of ambassadors, the validity of their actions, and the program itself with all sorts of specious claims.

    As many know, I refuse to invest my precious time interacting with anyone who is unable to show people respect. The currency that this sort trades in is locking up people's time in ongoing tirades so that they are not able to contribute productively.

    I do reach out to people directly when I see egregious comments in which they've been attacked, so that they know they are supported.

    I speak out frequently for tolerance so that anyone hurt would feel free to discuss any issues with me. But I just will not waste my time giving this type of attacking behavior any attention.

    #8 @Robert Bacal that is a VERY different scenario. You are talking about somebody who probably needs your help. But believe me... we say "no hay mayor desprecio que no hacer aprecio". A literal translation would be: "The biggest disdain/scorn lies in not paying any attention". We say that when we are mad at someone and we choose not to show our anger as a symbol of disdain. Because indifference can be much more hurtful than words.

    Thanks for the tag @Emilia M. Ludovino. I respect your professionalism and sense of responsibility by writing: "Please note I am neither a psychiatrist nor a psychologist if your anxiety is severe or debilitating please seek appropriate professional help." And: "There is no one way to settle anxiety, and each person responds differently to anxiety and to the techniques available." After this, I can say that your list is sound and offers thoughtful opportunities to consider in our day to day needs to gain control over our emotions. I highlight two of your points: 1. Awareness is crucial to maintaining control over our emotions. 2. Learning to listen to our emotions as communicating to us, bringing something to our awareness, can also reframe our experience and avoid moving into a reaction which an emotion can cause.

    Obviously, this may not work for everyone nor, for that matter, more than a few, but when I feel myself getting anxious, I ask very consciously "What could be the worst possible thing that could happen?" And if the answer is something other than fatal, I remind myself that, one way or another, it can be managed.

    FWIW, I have also determined in my life not to worry and stress over things that have not yet happened or not yet even imminent. My experience is that significantly more than 50% of potential problems do not ever come to pass. So if you stress over all possibilities, however remote, you will spend more than half your time worrying about nothing. And even in those cases where bad consequences do come to pass, following this path means that you eliminated a lot of useless worrying anyway. Cheers!

    When my daughter was very young, she used to describe those butterflies as a "bonkie in her tummy." She was born with an exaggerated sensory response to sudden noises...I can't tell you how many birthday parties we had to leave prematurely because someone popped a balloon. Her anxiety was rather extreme, however we have engaged in many of these techniques and quite a few modifications of our own to avoid medicating her...at times that too has been necessary. But sometimes, we just had to let her cry it out...I realized that children dealing with such powerful emotions are like open conduits to all the sensory input around them....they are unable to mute it as we tend to as adults. When they are at school among so many other children with their chaotic energy it is like being thrown into a snake pit! My little girl would come home sometimes after school and just lie across my chest for an hour or so and sob uncontrollably...Now, at thirteen, she's too cool to have me pick her up at the front door! Fortunately, most of the time given the proper coping skills, they grow out of it;-)

    Ian Weinberg
    24/02/2017 #3 Ian Weinberg
    Thanks @Emilia M. Ludovino for sharing another insightful appraisal of an important subject. The problem with anxiety and it's nastier big brother, 'panic', is that the amygdala (the seat of fear, anxiety, panic and rage) mediates its effects by secreting adrenaline-noradrenaline and cortisol, which in turn stimulate the amygdala. So you end up with an amygdala 'locked-in' spiral where one is a sustained victim of flight/fight. The only way that you can wind out of this spiral is through a 'break-state' - a diversion of attention, as you correctly point out. The second factor conspiring against us in the anxiety state is that the somatic symptoms of anxiety are invariably more forboding than the thing that actually triggered the fear in the first place. Hence when we administer Beta-blockers, by blocking the symptoms of anxiety but not the mind state itself, we observe a marked improvement in the overall anxiety state.

    You offer a great recipe for dealing with anxiety @Emilia M. Ludovino. I enjoyed all. I liked what you wrote "5 - Focus On Something Else: Distracting yourself from an intense focus on anxiety can also help". This is exactly what I do if somebody is talking angrily. I look the person in the eyes, nod my eyes occasionally let the person know I care and listen.In fact, I don't listen for two minutes and send my mind thinking about other issues. In two minutes anger cools down and then I may be truly listen, observe and think. It seems your prescription applies to anxiety, stress and other negative emotions.

    #108 Neil, thanks for reading and commenting. You say that well-meaning people can, "somehow end up supporting people who want to publish the plans for a bomb or the recipe for nerve gas on Facebook." No, they can't if they have any brains. Speech which ends in or encourages actions that harm others is not protected under the concept of free expression. Not to my mind, nor to that of any thinking person.

Summed up by, "I also can appreciate more the people I thought were very negative and unkind in a different light, as the glare from the positive rays can mask reality. We must seek to live in truth."

    I believe that we've grown together over the past year on beBee. Me toward more tolerance of those who don't understand me or my writing, and you toward more understanding of those who do. And I am touched by your loyalty and courage in speaking your mind these days. Your thoughts are both welcome and intellectually gratifying. Cheers!

    Thanks for the interesting and topical chat guys. It is certainly a hard balancing act for a lot of people. These days there seem to be a lot of calls for things and people to be banned by those who believe that their own desire not to be personally offended trumps the right to free expression. This is hard to agree with but the problem is that someone can start out in favour of non-censorship and the right to espouse unpopular views and somehow end up supporting people who want to publish the plans for a bomb or the recipe for nerve gas on Facebook. When there is a conversation going on this can be resolved in a messily human way by consensus and compromise. In the current climate however lots of factions are setting out intractable positions from the get go and refusing to budge an inch. So does the decision go to whoever shouts the loudest?

    #78 Thanks for the feedback. To promote the personal brand will show articles written by the author. We understand that is the most important. Although it would be interesting to offer other points of view, we want to bet on the personal brand.

    #105 Good to hear from you, Larry. You ask, I think, a couple of excellent questions. So let me answer: 1) Where the explicit mission of a social network is to create a "community" of users, I'd agree that, within the boundaries of the community standards for acceptable forms of expression, every community member's comments should be protected against removal. 2) Censorship is, in the strict sense of the word, prior restraint, either by active prohibition or by threat of sanction in the event of publication. Under which strict definition, removal or comments or posts by community officials would not, I think, be censorship, but as you say enforcement of community rules. Which is why I've repeated referred to an explicit statement of guidelines for removal or deletion. (The guidelines should be for the sanction because it is easier to define what is not acceptable than what is.)

    Notwithstanding that, however, I think we have to admit that the stated missions of most social media are not to create a "community", but something else, often a "platform" for self-publishing, personal-brand building, business and professional networking, job hunting, recruiting, and so on. So any inferences about what should be, cannot be drawn from accepted premises about a social community. IMO. Thank you for reading and joining the conversation.

    Excellent point @Phil Friedman and @Jim Murray and I agree on the points of censorship. However let me throw out another view where a social network is about creating a community of users. From a perspective of a community, as opposed to publishing platform, does user behavior and the removal of a user or their comment take different perspective? Could a user have every right to make a statement welcome in the community? If you have a state community value of respect and a user is not respectful are you censoring or simply creating a community where respect is valued by all and if not they are simply not part of the community? The results may be similar but the reason is different.

    Since you asked: You lead the conversation to borders. "Speak when you are spoken to..." I didn't want to be rude. [please do not respond to me, I'm going away now]

    #100 thank you, Antoinette. I am sorry to be obtuse, but what does this have to do with censorship? This is a post about censorship, not a general chat room. Thanks and peace. ✌🏽✌🏼

    #97 At least you admit we have a border.

    I compare our laws with other countries and we are EXTREMELY flexible. So flexible everyone seems to pick and choose which ones to follow.

    I am not one that picks on people whose legal status fluctuates because I know the complexities of immigration. The wall wont stop people coming here either or those that get paid to bring them. People whose status is in question are exploited and targeted for crime by their own people. They often cannot get home because they don't have a home or their home is over seas, not across a border... etc...

    Change is inevitable... hoping for the best possible outcome as always. Agitating people does not help and neither does masking reality.

    #96 In the absence of having anything good to say, say nothing. Even better, ignore that about which you have nothing good to say. It may be your right to speak, but it is also my right not to listen or read or pay attention. Cheers!

    #95 Yes, David, that is right β€” as far as it goes. The problem is with deciding what crosses the line to become, in your words, "... online bullying, harassment, needless name calling, personal attacks or demonization of one's character..." The hard part is setting the standards. For example, I personally find a lot of the self-ascriptive BS that some people post about how they are pretty much the second coming of God really offensive. But in saying so, I am not in any way advocating censorship of such material. I am just exercising my right to recommend that my fellow bees ignore that material and not promote it without first reading and pondering what it means to the rest of us who are concerned with the reputation of the platform.

    For me, freedom of expression is a fundamental right for all, including those with whom I disagree and who spout malevolent bilge. However, guaranteeing freedom of expression does not obligate anyone to listen or otherwise pay attention. Thanks for joining the conversation. And cheers!

    #93 Because, Antionette, the ends of the world do not stop at the US border. And hope springs eternal. Not to mention that a stitch in time saves nine. The bright spot on the horizon is, however, that the way things are going, nobody will want to emigrate to the U.S. (which will eliminate the need for a Wall at taxpayer expense).

    #95 @David B. Grinberg I agree. It is common sense. My parents taught me to be polite despite of disagreeing. It is smarter. But common sense is not so usual as it should ;).

    Thanks for another exemplary exchange as usual, Phil and Jim. I agree with Phil that there is nothing wrong with constructive criticism expressed in a cordial/polite manner on social media. There should not be unwarranted restrictions against an open online dialogue even on contentious and controversial all issues. Everyone has the right to express their own opinion and disagree with the majority. But once language changes from constructive to destructive then problems arise. There's never a justification for online bullying, harassment, needless name calling, personal attacks or demonization of one's character, etc.
    Just keep online speech polite and cordial even if you disagree, and there shouldn't be any problems. this is not rocket science but basic common courtesy, respect and good manners. Is that about right, Phil and Jim?

    #92 If that were true, then why is anyone trying to create a personal Brand? The "sky is falling!" is an isolated market.
