I've spent a lot of time in social networks.
If there's one thing that makes me sick to my stomach, it's the overall lack of social behavior or more specifically, people who completely fail to connect with anyone.
Don't be confused, although I am fasinated with being able to connect with such a varity of people of different interests, desires and dreams, I do not by any means expect to connect with every person I encounter.
What I am talking about is a complete failure to simply treat another person like, well, another person...the way you would like to be treated!
Sure most of us are probably quite familiar with the common 'social networker', the one way advert shouting machine, but this isn't even about them.
This is about the communicaters who don't communicate. People who stop by blogs or articles or discussions and leave a back-patting comment as if to say "YES, you are so right! I'm so glad we agree!" or even worse, can't handle a slightly contrary opinion whem in reality there is always another way to look at anything!
What the hecks wrong with a little disagreement?
Why can't people just accept that they don't know everything and open up to learning something new in the sheer delight of a heartfelt, hard-hitting healthy discussion and debate?
Are they afraid what people will think? That they'll look stupid or that someone might slightly disagree with them in opinion?
Are people like this here? I sure hope not, cause I have little if nothing to learn from getting patted on the back!
