Much Ado About Nothing

     William Shakespeare was the master of miscommunication and misunderstanding. If there is anything we can learn from his works, it is that there may be more to the story than we comprehend.

     The World Wide Web, often erroneously called "the Internet", is a tool. Like any tool, it can be properly used or it can be misused. Like this website, it can be used as a meeting place where people of like mind can find new friends and share information.

     The biggest problem with people is that they are human. They all have their own thoughts, ideas, and opinions. If thoughts are misconstrued, personalities clash and arguments break out. Rules are put in place to curb some of these clashes, but they cannot govern all human behavior.

     People often use the World Wide Web as their major source of communication. We meet other people all the time, but seldom get to really know the person behind the avatar, nickname, or online handle. Most of us do not need a deep understanding of each other to get a general outlook on their real-life characters. Oddities may be brushed off as quirks in a person's behavior. Some give-and-take is necessary in all human communication.

     Most people are the same online as in real life. There are some few who hide behind the relative anonymity of their online persona. The false sense of security may give them all the balls in the world, and they make comments online that they would never dare repeat in real life.

     People may take online comments to heart, and take great offence at what they perceive has been thrown at them. In the worst case scenarios, they may take drastic action including violence and suicide. More often those who are offended will simply abandon the website where that perceived (or proven) offence took place. Many websites have tools in place that allow users to block or ignore other users. (i.e. "That asshole is on my shit list!")

     What people need to understand is that the only power anyone has over them is the power that they give others. Most of us online will never meet each other in real life (IRL), so there is no real danger of harm. If "one bad apple spoils the barrel", then get rid of that bad apple! You may be helping others who do not have the courage to speak up.
