I noticed people are always quick to jump down each other's throats on here. Sometimes (well, lots of time actually) I see GAGfolk engaging in all out cyber war. My reaction to many comments I read on here goes like....
I just always wonder what are these people thinking? For what it's worth, there's a difference between what you would call 'telling it like it is' and being respectful. You can tell the truth without being rude or obnoxious or hurting someone's feelings. A little tact is all that's needed. Something I learned as a child that you need to know; if you have nothing good to say, it's better to keep it to yourself.
Another good thing to note is that in life respect is like a boomerang, you can't expect to get it back unless you throw it out there first. Yes sometimes people might be very annoying or you may not agree with something they posted, however there are many ways to get your point/opinion across without being a total jerkface. Just treat others the way you expect to be treated, simple as that.
So to recap:
- Respect everyone regardless of differences in opinion
- Be tactful
- Be careful what you say(type) and how you say(type) it.
- Do unto others as you would have them do unto you
- Don't be a cyber bully
I hope someone learns something from this. It can be applied to real life too. Happy posting!
