Ya Wanna' Fight About it?

You’re reading this, so obviously you spend some time on the interwebs. Lately, I’ve noticed that some people seem to be taking it entirely too seriously. They are becoming upset because they feel snubbed or disrespected. I have some news for everyone: IT IS THE FUCKING INTERNET! This is the place where people can anonymously be the assholes that they tone down in real life. Sometimes they won’t even have a good reason to be a dick, but because of whatever random reason they are. Malach's Youtube battle, (where a stupid broad with too much time on her hands gets riled up over something insignificant) is a prime example, and there are certainly other's.
INTERNET FIGHTING

Hell, look at
this guy, he screwed someone over about some shoes, and he got owned in the worst way. To summarize, they posted a craigslist ad for 'all night dicksucking' (complete with real phone/address), ordered 60 dollars worth of pizza to be delivered, filled out information for army recruiters to visit because he’s “highly interested in joining the army” (but his parents needed convincing), sent a satellite picture of where he lives to the INS people (also saying they have seen him selling pot to children under the age of 9) and my personal favorite: made FBI most wanted posters saying he was a sexual predator and child pornographer. Now THAT is an electronic snipe!

When our internet lives eclipse our “real” lives, that’s where problems arise. Hell, I’m even guilty of spending too much time on the intraweb, and when I couldn’t have full access to it while in Wisc, I was jonesing like a crack whore in rehab. Granted, Wisconsin is a mostly miserable place even WITH the internets, but no one should let any one thing be that important. Unless it is
porn.

The interwebs are no place for children, that's for sure! Hell, I've even know of people who steal other people's ID and post shitty things under that person's name! Go figure!

There are lots of very sensitive people out there. They are better off staying off the internet.

I get my share of hate mail, but nowhere near as much as I was hoping for. I have been called a "pig" in comments though. That was fun. ;-)

This is exactly why I cruise the OuterNet and not the InterWebs.

Plus, I'll kill that guy if I ever find him...I mean, c'mon...we were just fighting about SHOES.

I was getting sad because of all the time I spend on the Internet and then you excluded porn and everything was good again.

You're learning TMo!
This aint real. For entertainment purposes only.
Maybe they'll listen to you.

You know what I find ironic (and this is not directed at you in any way at all), but some of the people that cry the loudest about "live and let live" on the interwebs, are some of the very worst when they get sniped. They literally go ballistic.

Isn't it ironic?

(Don't worry, I'll answer that for you. Yes, it surely is ironic).

For reals.

I'm still waiting for my first hate mail. I'll take it as a rite of passage.

P.S. That wasn't an invitation!

caring about the internets and blogs and stuff ain't cool it's stupid, you'd never catch me being so lame, at least that's what i wrote in this monthes issue of blogger news and world report, I'm gonna post it on my blog and my three myspace pages my facebook page and my gay craigslist ad.

Well, if there's a smidge of truth to it and the target of the pwnage is really in the 9th Grade, then I think there are some legal problems with the stuff that bled over IRL.

If it's a joke, it's pretty funny and scary. Pwnage invades real life. I don't like how my karma points look for that one ;)

Good point, TM.

I surf while drinking. Once I'm intoxicated enough, everything on the Internet seems harmless.

Then I sober up and realize I dropped a grand at eBay, joined an web-based neo-Nazi group, sent hate-mail to a dozen people and filled my hard drive up with porn.

Porn, retards, and internet battles. This post had everything!
