But we alrady knew all this........
"In a survey conducted by the group of psychologists, people who partake in so-called trolling online showed signs of sadism, psychopathy, and were Machiavellian in their manipulation of others and their disregard for morality."
He says "Understanding"?
In obstinate condolement is a course
Of impious stubbornness. 'Tis unmanly grief;
It shows a will most incorrect to heaven,
A heart unfortified, a mind impatient,
An understanding simple and unschool'd;
For what we know must be, and is as common
As any the most vulgar thing to sense,
Why should we in our peevish opposition
Take it to heart?
Act I, scene 2
Xlation: People know only what they do know, and they think it must be true. Others know differently and have exceptions to them. When things turn ugly and discent manifests itself in vulgarity and name calling, then we should just move on without partake. Leave it be! but, aghhh he says "Why, Take it to heart?" ie; Why argue?
Because people like to argue? Just who is the smartest, in the room? I suppose this is what artifacts like a forum does to (most) people. It is what it is, perhaps?
It is doubtful what you are saying, and what part of Hamlet you quote, is understood by most here...and that is a large part of the issue... :)
But wise indeed!
Yes, thanks. I don't post much but I do try to be a smart*$$ myself, in other ways.
I'm actually surprised that you replied, nobody replies to me ....haha! It matters little to me, i'm not offended at all. I actually posted a OP-ed about 2 months ago, praising many people here for their good work. A few commented but the post fell off the 1st page in less than 3 hours, go figure? Took me an hour to compose it and I foolishly thought it would be a winner. Hootie and the Blowfish are more important to a Pats board than it's good members.
This forum is now a personal blog for a few. So many good people have gone and fewer post less now. That's sad.
Have a great night ....
