Sorry there are probably many other threads like this but I had a few questions and points I wanted to make. There all my opinion and please reply if you disagree or something. Today I went on youtube and looked at all my old videos which were not that great, but the comments were just horrible, sure it is easy to say some of that stuff behind a laptop but why would you? I mean youtube and all these places are meant for you to shared your videos, should people not share them just because they aren't as good as someone else? I mean we all start somewhere, almost nobody is a prodigy right away, but does that mean they shouldn't show there videos? I personally love seeing peoples improvement to especially my own it just shows what can be accomplished over time. I understand this is probably weird for most of you to see since you guys may just kill it at whatever you do but I mean my videos are maybe almost mediocre and such and my old ones were absolutely horrid. I find it fun seeing how people only respect people over the internet who stomp stuff and what not, which is probably why I don't get respect and I complain about stuff when I suck. But just because someone is worse then you does it make it right to hate? Well I know I look pretty pathetic complaining about this so Ill stop.
People saying the whole internet is like that are idiots and only visits site like 4Chan and NS. There are tons of websites out there that have intelligent discussions and the majority of content is valuable. That being said EVERY site will always have trolls. The solution is rigorous moderation and zero tolerance policies. But it would never work with a site like youtube or NS. The combination of a young demographic and anonymity makes valuable content next to impossible. The reality is on sites like this 75%+ of the content should be deleted.
If that was directed at me, I did not say every site is like this. Merely people are the way they are on the internet because no one knows who they are and they complete disregard for other internet users because they will never really have any significant impact on each others lives.
You shouldn't generalize "how people are" on the internet. It differs greatly from site to site and community to community. Trolls exist for the reason you described but why certain sites have more trolls then others is a combination of many factors.
I'm not generalizing how "people" are. The OP's irritation stems from hate on the internet. Now I know there are many people who who are helpful and considerate that surf internet, the OP is not asking about them. I don't think we're on the same page here, I explained why people troll and by and large trolls are quite similar across the internet.
As for my selfish asshole comment, that is why people hate. There's certainly a lot more hate than "love" on the internet. I can guarantee I've seen as much of the internet that is equal to if not greater than your exposure.
