I sat shaking while drinking my coffee this morning.
I had left a comment on my local news station about a local story. I was just trying to offer an alternative view. It inspired a dirge of negativity and name calling. Wow.
The internet provides a medium for people to make quick judgements and be downright nasty with a level of anonymity not previously afforded. My husband compares it to people driving in their cars. You probably wouldn’t cut someone off (budge in line) at your local grocery store. But people feel empowered in their cars to act brazenly in ways they wouldn’t in a face to face setting.
