Default Opinions for Sale: The World Of Message Boards & Internet in General

First Edition of opinions for Sale:
The Internet: Porn, Stealing Music, Online Abuse.....What a Revolution

Ahhh such a marvellous creation, Who knew the Internet would develop it's own sort of sub-culture as Web Lingo runs through the veins of just about anybody with more than 1,000 posts at any message board on the net as silly things like 'Noob' and 'Pwn' spread like wildfire through Cyber space, it kinda makes you wonder how much 'good' or 'damage' the internet is doing to today's Net Surfers?

We could rant on for days on the Positives and negatives of Internet Pornography but we all know it's a major part of the Net and in the long run helps the economy as it appeals to the Horny, Desperate or just plain Ugly and in some way generates cash flow. Although decaying the moral fabric of society but how often do we hear that about the Internet & porn these days from Upbeat Mormons knocking at your day at 8 in the morning asking if we love God or osme other bullshit. God I hate Moromons, bunch of Brain washing freaks with their complete idiotic beliefs, Yes I'm targetting All Mormons reading this, Fuck You! At least the Red Cross have the fucking decentcy to wait after lunch before they come knocking down my door for Donations, But not you fuckhead mormons!

Anyways with Internet Pronograghy you have the benefit of sharing Music and various other files over Giant Networks, now people say were stealling a lot of shit and robbing the Artist, Well of course we are but paying $15 - $30 for CDs with like 3 good songs on the album just seems like they're fucking robbing us. So it serves those right who release Killer material and leave the shit on the album for suckers to purchase with elevated expectations. If they're album work is good then they'll most likely be able to sell Concert tickets which in general generate more money than album sales when you release Artists get like a tiny fraction of the sales and majority is through Publishment, Shipment, etc.etc. and then of course the Record Label take out their big chuck of it too so the Artist themselves are basically the show ponies of the greedy Record Labels with the locrotive contracting. you'd be appaulled at the contract outlines signed through Talent Shows like American Idol and Popstars.

But now to the Chat Rooms, the Message boards and Forums. the Birth place of colliding Internet opinions as millions and millions of net users log onto sometime during their life time to spark up a topic on how great they thought Constantine was or What Great Music Avril Lavigne & Simple Plan release. But of course with contrasting opinions give way to flamming and with flamming came the net lingo used by veterans to be-little beginners or (Newbies / Noobs) as Simple things like LOL took off and cryptic abbreviations for some of the most simple words to type in full like (B4 = Before, WTF = What The Fuck) The forum meeting place has become so broad that there are various sites that design and host forums for different and various groups of interest, Including this very one with Vbulletin. But you can't help but wonder what is helping to all these people when they realise different opinions, well they either cave to poster pressure (which is kinda pathetic) and eventually buy into what people are saying that it slowly becomes they're own solid opinion too or they get run out of the message board by the majority....

The Internet Message Board is a dangerous Place as you can have a group of passionate people fire up on a certain topic you're viewing on the opposite side when you are being flamed back to the stone age for your opinions when you made the topic thinking it was completely innocent. Something as simple as a 13 year old Girl going "OMG Avril Rox!!!!" then you have the cynical basturds that come into the threads and ompletely shut her down for liking Avril Lavigne and break her self esteam by insulting her blah blah blah, The Internet is not a damn nice place and I find that really sad. But then again what can you expect, The Internet almsot gurantess no reprocussions for Online Abuse or Harrasment, Have we evloved our technology to a point where Harrasment in the Streets is not tolerated but we are free as a Bird to mouth off just about anybody of any race, culture, gender on someofthe most trivial or idiotic subjects on the Internet for Millions of Others read...?

We have created a place where Harrasing a person into thinking you're right and they're wrong for having different opinions is common occurance and again is quite saddening when the Internet was was originally made for Sharring Information when all we're doing is giving an excuse for be-littling all that wrong you.

---------------------------

Quote of the Week: Looking up for answers makes you lose perspective...

I've probably missed most of the pros on of the Net but I think I got something across here....

Almost 5,000 posts and you don't like what Message Boards do to 13 year old girls' self esteem?? Not exactly unhypocritical, but I can see your point. Well, the world is a hard place. Best to get kids used to it early.

Late.

Well I try to keep away from Flaming others, that's why I'm not constantly in the Warzone having pointless fights with....Ya know, them.

I've rubbed a few of you here the Wrong way but I tendto stay out of trouble majority of the time, I'm just writting what've I've noticed in my near 5,000 posts...

But yeah a little Hypocritical at times but then again, I haven't done much of this so I can't gloss over it very well....

Don't take it too hard...most people are guilty of hypocrisy in one way or another. It's just the way of things. Certain things about the Net can be very very cool. Certain things can be very very bad. I'm not without my hypocritical moments.

Fuck it though. Life's hard...you can't expect a 13 year old to be on top of her smack. However, it's twice as bad when a 13 year old is on top of their smack but not on top of their facts. Young'ns won't really come to realize the truth of this statement for a few years but:

"It's impossible to explain to a teenager that they are wrong or mistaken if they have convinced themselves that they are right."

I don't know why...I was a teenager and I couldn't explain it but I was never wrong. In retrospect, sometimes I feel physical discomfort at how completely wrong, unrepentant and totally ignorant of the fact I'd been in spots.

The past is the past though. Can't do it over and now's too late for apologies.

Late.

Next time they come around, tell them you're a Jehovah's Witness...same thing with those freaks...if they come around, tell the you're a Mormon. My sister did that when I was a kid and I don't ever remember either sect coming back to my crib for a pow-wow.
