January '10 - Nice And Nasty People Online.
an internet theory that's been going around
for some years that goes: Normal Person +
Anonymity + Audience = Total Dickwad. I've
noticed this theory to be true on many
occasions but not all the time.
I was on
YouTube looking up Gillian Cooke, she's on
Britain's bobsleigh team with Nicola
Minichiello. There was a clip on live TV
where they are just about to race and Gillian
Cooke's race suit splits and it's funny. The
problem I have with YouTube are the stupid
comments people leave, most comments are just
comments where people laugh and say it was
funny but some comments are just completely
nasty and insulting both the women and the
person who uploaded the vid.
another website that I sometimes use called
Utherverse, it's a little bit like Facebook
but more adult, it also has a 3D chat/game
with it but it lags so bad that a lot of
people don't use that feature. It's more of a
fantasy Facebook where a lot of profiles are
fake. What I love about it though is everyone
seems to be so nice, even when it's abvious
that someone is faking people rarely swear
unless it's part of a sexual comment.
rooms often have nasty people too but they
are usually so over the top that it's funny
rather than offensive. Even I've acted like a
big moron in chat rooms before but then
instantly left, changed name and acted
extremely nice and polite.
