Yelling at the Internet by Insanity-24-7 Yelling at the Internet by Insanity-24-7
*Chocolatebonbons121 says that you cannot make just one stamp. That sounds like a challenge if I've ever heard one.

Since I first started exploring this beautiful series of tubes, I've seen a lot of wondrous, god awful, hilarious things. If you are willing to find your happy place, stay quietly in it, and ignore anyone who wanders past, then you can be perfectly happy privately doing whatever you want. However, if you want to do anything public, then you should be aware of something.


You can have the most valid, moral, widely approved opinion on the planet but, if you express it LOUDLY for PROLONGED PERIODS OF TIME on the internet, there will eventually be problems.


I don't mean "yell" literally, though you can yell with CAPSLOCK. I mean expressing an opinion in a very public, noticeable manner. And, when I say LOUDLY, I mean ... obstinately? In a manner that makes it clear you have already made up your mind and everyone else is absolutely wrong, regardless of what points they bring up. If you need more specific examples, I've got some. Just ask :)

For the most part, internet karma works. People who kick up a fuss get to deal with a fuss. Of course, there are people who get buried under more internet woes than they really deserve and there are people who are really asking for it but haven't got their comeuppances (yet). However, those people are outliers and not representative of the whole.


The moral of the story is either pick your words carefully, embrace the negative attention, or quit while you are ahead.

I was browsing through stamps when I came across this one at the slide "PERIOD," and the background is blood-red so I was like 'Somebody made a stamp about menstruation?'

Of course. ^___^ I help yell back and I have been yelled at. It is the way of the internet, and the way of the world. And the way of 4chan.

I really like this!
I never understand why ppl have to word things always so stupidly harsh and well... in the end they cry that everybody is so mean to them, or that they get stalkers / 'trolls' / 'flamers' ___o
My net experience is, that being friendly always shoos the mean ppl away pretty fast... and its fun to be super friendly to such guys XD~

Thanks :meow:

You can say and do whatever you want on the internet so long as you accept the consequences. And there are consequences :nod:

Being overly nice is fun~!

Yep. A lesson I've had to learn the hard way. Several times. *Rubs her poor bruised ego* FYI, humble pie doesn't taste very good.
