Strawberry Singh’s Monday Meme this week is about mean behavior online. It’s a good read. Go ahead and take a look. I’ll be right here.
Except for Second Life’s erratic my.secondlife.com pseudo-social feed (AKA The Feed that residents talk about), I tend to avoid social media so I don’t see a lot of the mean-spirited postings of which Strawberry mentions. Yes, I hear about them. I’ve seen trolls hit hard on The Feed, on Plurk (a service I have but don’t look at), and in comments posted to various Web sites I visit. I wish others could say that their experience is like mine. One-time troll magnet Tish Coronet has a beautifully executed image on Flickr showing some comments she’s received over time.
While I don’t imagine I could do something as elegant as Tish did for her reply to the meme, I know I could probably answer Strawberry’s questions. But I won’t. I’m going to step away from the drama. Here’s a Happy Kitty Picture!
