Flaming, Trolling, Hate, Ego, and sensitivity
As we read topics and engage in discussion, sometimes thoughts like, "This guy's an asshole!" or "This person is a total moron" or even "Tch. Weak.".
Well, obviously not everyone has the temperance to keep the angry thoughts inside, and end up flaming. Sometimes, we don't have the patience to try to correct and instruct people to do right things, and end up belittling them.
Some people actually aren't fed up with stupidity, conceit, or weakness, but instead actively seek conflict and hurt, and prey on suffering to feed their sadistic desires. Trolls do just that.
When people are hurt, they fight back, most of the time. They become vengeful, and past that, hateful. Two sides become ongoing enemies, resulting in peacelessness on both sides.
People with tight egos are especially susceptible to fights, and are constantly fighting to defend their cause.
Of course, in fights, there will always be some degree of collateral damage, but insistent proud people do not care, and will continuously hurt others for no reason.
Now, when you read this, you will think, "Wait! This isn't me at all. I don't pick fights! I'm tolerant of other's weak points! I'm a caring amiable person!" How dare I accuse you of such behavior!"
Well, please bear with my straightforwardness and accept my apology.
In truth, we all do such behavior in mild. Instead of flaming, we just chide a little. Instead of belittling, we ignore. We don't troll, but we poke at sensitive spots. We endure, but only so much. We try to be humble, but we have our honor. And little conflicts will accumulate if not settled.
So I suggest trying to resolve strife within these forums and try to build a community of peace and happiness. Let's discuss this important issue, and keep in mind that we will run into conflict; however, we should focus on resolving them harmoniously as efficient as possible.
Of course, trolls and bullies will try to pick on us, but keep in mind that their enjoyment is just a temporary relief from their own insecurities. That's all.
