START A PETITION 25,136,189 members: the world's largest community for good
Jul 27, 2008

"The freedom of speech is a wonderful thing and so are internet communities. People can have serious or light-hearted conversations and exchange opinions on various subjects. Sometimes people may disagree and that is just part of a discussion, nothing wrong with it.
But some people just randomly yell out insults like "troll", "noob", "idiot", "no one cares about your problems", as a response to serious threads. Such people should just get banned or at least suspended from the forum for a while. Lots of internet communities just let it slide, but they shouldn't, we should urge all internet communities to make sure that their forums are safe to write in, without people yelling out random insults!" ~ Signe Robertson

 My reply ( for the record ) :


I think it great to have communities police themselves like youtube has now. I also think that the cyber communities themselves should be able to do this exclusive of out side support. It is a very unique catch 22 because we are more or less not governed in cyber space. 

I have been stalked by an absolute psycho and it has just about ruined my web life! I host a group about HIV and AIDS and other than the 1 known psycho have had others; all kinds of mysterious attacks. I'm sure the one person at least is mistaken me as a vulnerable and therefore attacking me? People are the craziest animals. I try to let it go. You know we ain't gonna like everybody out there, and visa versa, no matter who we are! You know people will crucify the best among them? It helps me to understand this - I don't have any use for worry and anxiety otherwise. People are the cwaziest animals! I love them anyway!! I think in forums threads and the blogosphere usually these out blurts are from people who are intellectually ineffectual and therefore are acting their shoe size at the time! I have something like this to think (to myself) at times like these - to whom it may concern - "Whatever d a!? You know get off the porch so to speak! Sit down, take the cotton out of your ears and put it in your mouth, you might learn somethin!!"
