It’s bad enough that we have to deal with hate in the real world but in cyberspace it seems that little bit more insipid. I guess though it’s easier for small minded bigots to peddle there fear and hate online than in the real world. In the real world they would have to look at someone and see they are just like them. It’s easy to run arouund and call people names and try to intimidate them until you have to actually look them in the eye and deal with their own feelings.
Ryan is dealing with some hate comments and I must say although worse than comment spam they should be treated in exactly the same way. commenting about it and allowing them to continue validates their views.
When I rule the world people who do not allow others to get on with their lives regardless of race, colour, sexual orientation etc etc should all be made to live someplace else and let the vast majority of people in the world get on with it!
ooh a rant – I haven’t had one of those in a while!
