Internet Respect: Be Very Smart Or Real Stupid?

By | October 25, 2012

Just today I decided to post a few links to Reddit as an experiment, primarily to see if they generated immediate traffic, even the slightest to the linked page.  Well, they did (somewhat) but what they also provided was further proof that a vast majority of those trolling Internet sites such as Reddit are idiots, for lack of a better word.  Additionally, it provided evidence that idiots are immediately embraced by their fellow idiots.

The Reddit post in question was a link to a theory I wrote on TeeTwits of the adverse impact someone with great influence, in this case Lady Gaga could have on a stock such as Apple if she one day decided that Apple was evil and not cool for her fan base.

The reply to the above link from a respected user on Reddit was:  “When Lady Gaga wore a dress made of meat, people still ate meat the next day”.

To this I had to say; “Obviously you have no idea nor the intelligence to effectively and correctly comprehend my thesis”.

Moral of the story?  Never respond to or get concerned regarding comments to your posts wherever they may be.  You know what they say, “On the Internet, nobody knows if you’re a dog”.
