    Internet has ruined conversation

    I do my best not to get worked up about conversation on the interwebs. Sometimes though, I'm reminded that face-to-face conversations would go 180° differently than what they do on here.

    Disrespect is rampant. We're all grown folks here and should treat each other as such.

    I also think too many people have completely forgotten what it's like to have the taste slapped out of their mouths.

    Byproduct of the times unfortunately. We want things at the tips of our fingers .

    I have said it before. Cellphones have and will be one of the biggest downfalls of human civilization.

    I've read articles from former facebook executives where they admit social media has adversely changed how people interact.
    I try and correspond online in the same way I would face to face but agree lot's of people don't and they know it.

    As that's the second time you've brought it up in as many days, you sure you aren't the one flexing?

    I haven't made it back. I'll be back this fall for sure. I have some properties that I need to attend to.

    From time to time, I've pointed out that if we were all standing in the same room - most if not all the bad actors would not beak off like they do while fingering a keyboard.

    Some might argue that threatening to beat the **** out of people because you don't like what they said or how they said it isn't justifiable, but what do I know?

    Precisely...and should immediately result in permanent expulsion.

    Internet has ruined conversation

    It’s also unfortunate that we don’t live in a time where two men can have a go without the law or lawyers at the end. I wish we were still in the old west, you have a discrepancy, take it out of the saloon and settle it.

    Another problem these days, people don’t know when they have won, if you’ve knocked a guy on his ass already and he’s counting stars and wondering what day it is, there’s no reason he should still be getting hit and kicked while on the ground.

    I’ll not run from a fight if I feel it’s necessary to escalate to protect myself or family, I just worry that if I go down, will the other guy have enough sense to know when to quit before inflicting permanent damage or death?

    The internet has ruined everything. And Walmart, I blame them too. Lol
