    Default 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.

    How was this thread's introduction?

    I like bigger paragraphs with smaller amont of paragraphs, personally.

    And this is what I think: the Internet is used for spectacle. The ultimate entertainment, because we are involved and involving others in a humiliating fashion. We act psychopathic because we don't need to follow norms, and truly, all I see is text instead of a person.

    I expect that I should entertain, and I expect the same from you. If I wanted to be me instead of this asshole, I would go to parties more often. I don't like 'em, and this is generally a small portion of time used to entertain myself greatly.

    Though I do admit that it has been lacking lately, so I am thinking of bowing out due to the lack of energetic fodder to fuel my expectation for spectacle.

    It's human nature to do stupid insensitive things. It's also human nature to do wonderous things.

    Edit: not sure if I'm being considerate or inconsiderate here.

    Hey, I'm glad you decided to make the thread. Here I'm going to post the first two messages from our PM conversation to get us started, I appreciate any responses from all of you guys and what your personal thoughts are on this subject.

    If I want to ask somebody about their religion, how should I do it without offending them?

    An example would be why should I follow so and so religion, and how credible are the texts if they have been translated and rewritten over thousands of years?

    Well its always hard to ask someone about their religion, but its much harder to ask someone you don't know about their religion or race. So generally speaking, don't try to start a discussion with strangers about those two topics. I say this because at my work place, I'm a Sales Associate and while I work at the register, I get asked all sorts of stupid questions about my religion and my race, by people I don't even know. It annoys the living shit out of me. Because if I asked them, those assholes would give me hell, but they get to ask me and I'm supposed to be happy to explain myself?

    So this is how I'd do it; I'd begin the whole thing by explaining my own circumstances first. You feel like asking someone about their personal beliefs or racial background? Be prepared to fess up on yours first. No one trusts a person who can't give as well as they take.

    Then I'd be sensitive about certain things. So the guy looks brown, or black or asian or whatever. Don't jump to conclusions. I look as Indian as I am. That's fine. But don't go up to me saying, "you're Indian right?" You can tell just by saying that aloud that it sounds arrogant. For all anyone knows, I could be Sri Lankan, or Malaysian or Indonesian. But it's fairly rare for some whitebread american or some old black lady to tell the difference, and usually they can't and they won't bother to try. <--- Very bad policy. Ask without assuming any particular answer is true.

    So say I went up to my coworker, Collins. He's from Kenya. I want to ask him about that but I don't want to look like I'm full of shit, so I'd work my way into it.

    I'd start up a conversation about my home country or my culture, it could be anything, language, festivals, music, traditional dance, anything. Then I'd ask him about his. If you ask in an educated manner, and let them know that you care about their culture and their answer then you won't just be asking them to point out a difference between them and everyone else.

    Did that help? Rate me on a 1 to 5 scale. 5 being best and 1 being worst.
    Dear cousin choppitychop89, you were a good relative, though I hardly knew ye.
