thecapncummings asked: On the whole internet troll subject what do you think is the best avenue to combat this whole thing? I'm not a fan of complaining about it maybe just being positive and promoting good behavior? I've been taught being a good example is always best. Thoughts?
Just be the best version of yourself, use playground rules, you don’t fight with bullies, you don’t get in the mud,
as a good friend of mine reminds me every time someone in this business takes a swing at me: you don’t punch a pile of shit because all that will happen is you will get shit on you
I just wish that the larger higher profile forums would take a much harder stance on what they allow on their message boards. I am all for free speech but hate speech, rape speech, and general negativity on your forums is creating an unfriendly and frankly inaccurate atmosphere.
as I have said on this tumbler I have met women who have admitted to me that they have to pose as men on some higher profile message boards so they can have a decent conversation about comics without being Internet pawwed.
I have told the people who own these boards and they have done nothing about it because they’d rather have the traffic even though I think the traffic would be higher if people were allowed to have a conversation without being bullied or harassed.
all I can do is not cooperate with those sites anymore. and I do not. for which it has been explained to me I am perceived as a pain in the ass. oh well.
