From the Guardian… November 30, 2013

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Culture.

an anonymous piece from an internet forum moderator on what they’re really thinking. Much of it isn’t applicable to the CLR, we’re a bit more calm. But I laughed at this, not because it’s absolutely wrong, or right, but just because given interactions on some sites, and again not really the CLR at all, one could get that impression:

There are topics some people seem unable to discuss without losing their minds. Politics, obviously. Being a single parent really gets people quacking. Benefits, too. I wonder why people feel the need to vent such strong opinions. If the country were run on the internet, it would be civil war, permanently.

I was listening – because I couldn’t avoid it – to a man at the next table over lunch today, talking in real life internet speak: it was like having to listen to a whole CIF thread, except……. he was actually on the ‘right’ side about everything; tories are scum, immigrants are an asset to the country, benefits should be double, people should have the right not to work…… but all delivered in that unbearable ‘I’m the only one in the world who knows this’ manner that made me hate him for keeping me from my book and making me eat too fast. His companion never got a word in.
