the emotional minefield of "youtube"

... just recently I discovered that there is almost an infinite number of interesting things on 'youtube' to become interested enough to share thoughts and 'comment' on!

and I was pleased that I was keen to involve myself in discussions with other interested people.

...and to learn from these discussions.

then I was abruptly taken aback by certain individuals that presented nothing on the topic apart from abusing the crap out of me!

any attempt on my behalf to understand these individuals only provided them with more ammunition to 'character assassinate me'.

now?...I am not completely naïve and I prefer to believe that people are "good"...

but the blatant and shameless abuse that I received from people that had no agenda but to hurt me..no idea about the interesting conversation!

this one person appeared to ride all my comments in search of a spelling error?

...and proceeded to "hate" me each time I made a spelling error.

now I am no slouch when it comes to being dangerous if events arrive that require a dangerous response.... as long as genuine persons are protected I will always defend them from trouble!

...maybe I am naïve?...

because I continue to be upset by people on youtube that just seem to hang about for the purpose of 'dis-heartening' others and to satisfy what is obviously some severe insecurity.

thankfully I do not respond... for I fear that with psychopathic 'hackers'...

I might just find myself 'blown up in my own bed someday'

I guess the point of this post?...

I cannot understand why so many "many" people stand by ridiculous excuses to hate someone just because they are anonymous and have an opportunity to hurt someone else simply because it pleases them to be hurtful!

I enjoyed my conversation with likewise thinkers and then I got ambushed by those that were only motivated by being "assholes".

youtube is a playground for some very unlikeable creatures.

I refuse to call them humans

and it's in my best interest to avoid them.

I refuse to make contributions to youtube.
I refuse to have a facebook account.
I refuse to be a 'tweeter'...!

I am way too old and way to trained in the original forms of communication
to cope with the anonymous world of the "selfie"... which transcends all of these sick mediums.

the "selfie" occupies this personally unsustainable world!

what ever happened to 'humility'... to 'discretion' to 'deliberate kindness'...

humanity has dis-integrated into some disgusting personal event.

this 'global'...anonymous interconnected-ness has enabled the worse features of people?... to thrive.

I hope I am still alive when the "philosophical selfie"... backfires and reminds everyone that they are NOT "uniquely special"...and that only 'them' are experiencing "themselves"....all by 'themselves'.

humanity is under attack by the "individual"...

I believe that there are enough of us out here who can combat this...

it will not go away until we completely ignore it

The online and offline worlds are similar when socially interacting.
The anonymousness makes no difference.

The thing is to "know" your own mind.
Preferrably upfront.
