Online Humor – Wrong on the internet

Posted by on February 21, 2013 at 6:55 am.

A few months ago, I stumbled upon this cartoon. It made me laugh.

I’ve seen my share of people interacting in various discussions where they simply have to be ‘right’ on whatever issue is being discussed. I shake my head and think to myself… You both made your point… just let it go. But no… you’ll have the same folks going round and round on the same issue, determined to have the last virtual word. A bit silly if you ask me.

I’m not sure what drove me to post this now. I haven’t stumbled upon any online train-wrecks in a while, and when I do encounter them, I go out of my way to avoid them. I dislike that type of foolishness. Then again I’m not active on any ‘drama filled’ forums/sites. The sites I do visit tend to be  drama free, so that might explain why I don’t see this behavior often? 😉

    Most people I know are that way…but…I guess sometimes I can be that way, too! Eeeek! I have to remember to bite my tongue sometimes.

    @Jennifer, If we’re talking about the same thing,’drama discussions’, I avoid them since I’d only be adding to the negativity.

    It can be hard to diffuse those when people let their negative emotions take the place of common sense. In some cases you’ll find people aren’t listening to each other, they are thinking of what they’ll say next. That’s a one-sided conversation. I can (usually) tell when a conversation is going to get toxic so I avoid them. Personally, I don’t run into many of those discussions.

    The few times I’ve encountered them I refused to engage, since if I’m not adding to a conversation in a positive, helpful and respectful way, then that’s a conversation where I won’t participate.
