So that’s what I’m going to be doing with the old blog. Just not as often as I have in the past. I figure there should be at least one thing about the life and the world that catches my attention that I can rant about each week. Not serious rants mind, those crazy and hopefully funny rants that come to my mind.
Since this is the Internet, I figured I’d start with conflict. Remember, when the Internet was billed as the great thing that will bring people together in an exchange of ideas? Yeah, well. It still does do that occasionally. But what we hear about most of the time is the silly flame wars and hashtag activism.
One of the philosophies I’ve adopted in life is “Never fight a battle you don’t have to win”. On the web, that means don’t engage in debates that are pointless. There’s plenty of people out there who aren’t interested in discussion. They aren’t interested in facts or logic. Portions of your argument will be taken out of context and used against by an virtual lynch mob. So no. It’s just not worth it.
Wow. That is kind of downer. Not exactly the fun filled post that I thought it would be. But this is how keep from smashing my head into my keyboard and let’s me enjoy the other and more important things in life.
