I don't know if this is a new trend or what, but I've gotten to reading the comments on some news articles on Yahoo and have noticed that the general populace who use Yahoo seems to be full of hateful bastards.
Is it just Yahoo or is it all over the internet? I haven't seen much of it on CoM (though I've heard about it) and I haven't seen it on Facebook, but I know it has to happen all over the internet. It can't possibly be isolated to one social network.
But why? Why have people become so hateful and bitter? I mean, I have been pretty bitter in my short life, but damn! What gives people the right to bash a six-year-old for telling her mom that she was picked on by some boys at school? What gives them the right to bash the President because he played a game of basketball? What gives them the right to bash homosexuals every chance they get, even when the stupid article has NOTHING to do with it?
I'm just appalled at human nature right now. Maybe I'm just sheltered, but I am disgusted by it all.
Your thoughts, please.
