You used to be cool. What happened to you?
Why isn't he cool anymore, because he dared go against the grain and have an actual thoughtful and mature opinion and bullying? Why, because he refuses to jump on the bandwagon of petty insulting and ignorance when almost everybody else did?
People who can't handle a normal discussion say that here.
Just another attempt at trying to distract. Just grow up already.
If you want to talk serious lets do it but if you want to play kids it should be about time to hit that sandbox.
Now if your next sentence is gotten to again you will have proved my point exactly.
Stop with the main stream bullshit. There is no sucha thing as "human nature". I have walked this earth for 23 years.
I have met different kinds of people. Not every family out there raises their kids with the lack of good parenting.
Some actually raise them with actual good values and not just some flawed to the bone social darwinistic ideas. It's these kind of ideas that have been failing humanity for many years now.
People of course could create a whole new environment for themselves if they wanted to. It's all about the current trending ideas a society have. "Human nature" varies on the environment.
Matter of fact I would say it has most to do with the environment. Every single false idea out there can be replaced with a moral one. If that would to happen you can theoretically say that that building a society with no "human nature" would be possible.
People has something called a choice.
Hear this. People usually are nothing more but slaves to their own bad habits and environment. Meaning basically if rants was a nice community with people respecting one other you would follow the lead in doing whatever majority is doing here.
It's an environment issue no matter if this is internet or not. Believe or not actually same basic social rules apply here as they do in the real world.
I absolutely agree, and while this response wasn't directed at me, I wanted to reply to this.
These people are simply acting in their comfort zone. They see someone they perceive as weak getting harassed, and they jump in because 1) they can do so without fear of being ganged up on 2) it gives them gradification infront of their peers and the obvious 3) of being too coward to actually have an independent thought on the matter.
They hide behind the guise of 'having fun', but it all boils down to the brilliant Cloverleaf post in my sig. These people are marking their territory on this Forum, and they are trying so desperately to be perceived in a good light by their peers regardless of whether what they're doing is wrong or not. I feel like some Mods/Admins are no better as they help perpetuate the drama rather than be big enough to moderate it when it gets out of hand. In the end, I feel like they've made buddies on this Forum, and they don't want to do something unpopular even if it's morally the right thing to do. To me it is this structure that is wrong, the Asylum is letting the Inmates run it, but not all inmates, just the ones they personally like.
This may be the rant section, but there should still be a limit of where you are going to take things. Since I started this thread, I have gotten 30+ pages worth of ignorant and vile personal insults, and barely anyone has stayed on topic, yet there isn't a single person in authority remotely trying to stop it, or even attempt to cool this shit down.
When you group up to attack someone incessantly with personal insults for little to no valid reason, that is bullying. When the person doesn't aknowledge you, yet you keep coming back to dish out more abuse, that is bullying.
As you pointed out, it's not human nature because human beings cultivated these cruel and damaging actions out of social dogma, they did not stem out of the survival mechanism, there is absolutely no need for it in society, and our values as a society would greatly improve without it. I always thought that this behavior was cowardness, insecurity and indecency. these people think they are tough by ganging on a single Pinata, but they don't realize that they look pathetic to the group of people who are mature enough to stay away from this vile section, and i'm sure these very bullies would have cracked under pressure had they been in my shoes. Bottom line
They want to attack a guy like Sean for coming on Youtube with John Cena Gear. Who the hell cares? What's they point, why do you have to come back incessantly to take cheap shots at that guy when he's done you no wrong on a personal level. It really makes me sick.
One day, someone in this damaged community with enough stroke will finally wake up, and hit some sense into this sad group of followers.
