Anyways, we are kinda getting off topic. Sooooooooo, yeah. God... Spirits... Stuff...


The problem is that people abuse the anonymity that the internet provides and say things they would be afraid to say in person. A lot of the people who bully others on the internet in real life are cowards. It's easy to be tough when you don't have to face your opponent in person.

We all have to do our part to stand up to bullies, whether they are in our physical space or cyberspace.

I agree with ya there. Anon can be a game changer when it comes to what people will say. Me, however, won't hold a thing back real life or not. People who only stand tall as anonymous are really low. Plus, we ought to start a bullying thread! ;)

I'd be happy to start a thread on bullying if you are interested in contributing. :)

Religions start wars over a lack of respect for the beliefs of others. This thread is a good example of what starts religious wars. :lol:

So true too. Thou most internet bullies are also bullies in real life if they find someone weaker then themselves.
The only thing to fear is the fear itself

I think the main problem is people are taking this stuff to seriously and to hear too quickly, also in many topics I find myself repeating the same statements over and over and somehow people will completely misinterpret it and get all defensive and pissy.

I don't see that you are repeating yourself and no on is getting defensive or pissy about your comments so don't worry.
