It sat there for 7 days and was deleted an hour before Mars closed the thread.
I'm not sure Lias, I didn't pay a ton of attention and I do not think I really read the thread, I saw the name and prolly passed it over but it could have been gone the next or day after. I know I looked over at the thread for another reason and recall it was gone tho.
Just a few years ago the Internet was considered all spam and porn. Evolution takes place. People don't expect to be verbally attacked at a social function in RL. And as the net matures and becomes more civilized, it won't be expected here.
I don't really care.
Pep (doesn't take much notice of what anyone says if it isn't entertaining.)
I looked at it every day because it pissed me off, LOL.
Actually, it depends on the function. A wedding? No, I don't expect anyone would be crass on purpose.
A bar? Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if someone started spouting off some bullshit about Browncoats being cowards. (LEE! LEE! ANOTHER ONE!)
Or did it piss you off because you looked at it every day? lol ...just teasing with this one.
So, how long you been livin' in NeverNeverLand?
Or didn't you get the memo of the RL protests against gay soldiers, being conducted at their funerals? Seriously, buy a clue, Vanna. Every/Anywhere you go today, you'd damn well better expect to be verbally attacked. Today's meme was about two (black) girls on a subway/train, eating spaghetti out of their take-out cartons, and some fat white bitch gettin' in their face, callin' them "animals" for eating on the train...
The net, like RL, is DEvolving. Wake up and smell the rot.
You must go to some really boring RL social functions.
Pep (only goes to such events for verbal interaction of a provocative kind.)
I particularly ignore posts that are merely recitations of cliches . . .
Pep ( . . . unless they are so old that they have an antique attraction.)
Nah. It's Evolving still.
Porn doesn't mean we're not evolving. Porn will exist until the last glimmer of humanity is snuffed out!
Totally not entertaining. You can do better!
Try again please.
I wanted to respond to it but Mars was clear in his instructions.
I'm afraid I have to agree with the idiot here. The world, as a whole, is degenerating into a filthy sewer. It's not getting better, it's only getting worse. The net is a key factor in this process, allowing people to stoop to the lowest common denominator, without any real consequences.
Every day for seven days?
You could always copy, repost and reply elsewhere if it's niggling at you that much. I suppose that misses your point though.
Lain, I completely disagree!
The net allows us to see the scope of dumbasses in the world more than we ever could before.
That's not something that's changing, it's something we're becoming more aware of.
Many of us could present a case that the net is showing people getting nicer just as easily as showing people getting nastier.
Personally, I think there's a strong undercurrent of positive change going on.
It looks to me like this issue is not resolved.
I started an entire thread about you just because you clicked the agree button on a post that was unflattering toward me on another board.
After resisting a flame war for a few hours , it's easier to resist. Flamewars usually roll on with knee-jerk reactions.
Yeah, this issue is definitely not resolved.
Man who sells you your weed? Seriously hook a sister up.
