99% of You Tube is done by Trolls....
Now that I have your undivided attention; 99% of you tube is not done by trolls but the number is rather high. This is what I find aggravating and annoying and just down right frustrating.
I try to remain educated and informed even after high school and college. When I started college at San Diego State University back in the fall semester of 1990, the internet was in its baby stages. Remember AOL... you got mail !
That annoying dial up tone before high speed internet and Roadrunner fixed that problem. Chat rooms were fun to meet new people but that went away like the dinosaurs of old. I have had friends go bust in the dot com revolution.
Everyone just gravitates online since all your work and pleasure needs are just a click away. Need to perform a budget or crunch some numbers, open up Excel.
Do you have a report that needs to be written up before your next term paper? MS Word is at your disposal. And remember you will have to update your computer in 24 hours otherwise your files might be exposed with virus or malware or space aliens.
Ok... what's you point? Ever take the time to read the comments on any post or blog whatever the issue... fill in the blank...
Religion, Racism, Trump and CNN ( Russia collusion.. voting), sports, social issues, healthcare...
You get the picture. Not all the time but most of the comments I see are gross, vile, inappropriate, racist, sexist and the hate speech goes both ways.
Nothing gets done or accomplished and it just gets the flesh involved. I want to drive home a simple point with a few cases.
I like seeing other sides to a story even if my religious or political views don't always line up. Some people will claim the internet and social media outlets allow a platform for ideas to be shared and possible work and networks to be established.
So far.... so good.
You have find out really quickly you are not the center of the universe and there is truth and people's opinions. I once entered into a conversation with an online person about a religious text. I will not dive into the details. but I challenged the person to explain what he is seeing that I am not; I was curious how he was deciphering the text. He just had this unorthodox teaching. To make along story short, I told him this was not a good use of my time since he was becoming vulgar in his language.
HIs last comment to me before he logged off was this and Im paraphrasing: : HAHA,, you loser
