What is wrong with YOU?

21 December 2011, 13:51

What is wrong with YOU people?

 

No, this isn’t another story about Zinjanthropus, the Twin-toothed rock-eater who lived in Africa 1,750,000 years ago; this story is about YOU!

 

I have only recently started reading and posting on News24, and Boy! What an eye-opener! At a rough guess it would appear that more than 95% (a thumb suck) of the posts and comments on these pages are made by YOU.

 

Is it really possible that the contributors to this site consist (mostly) of uneducated fools, blabbering idiots, disrespectful bigots, extremists, atheists – who believe they have all the answers, Christians – who believe they have all the answers, Islamics – who believe they have all the answers, racists of all colours, suicidal diehards, dogmatists, chauvinists, and fanatics?

 

If YOU feel that I missed have out on the category that YOU want to be classified under, please enter it here ………….

 

Using the anonymity of the Internet seems to have created a whole new generation of monsters. I cannot believe that if YOU are to have a face-to-face meeting with the person that YOU have insulted – with your disrespectful comments and jibes – that YOU would have the guts to make the same comments.    

 

Clearly, most of these arguments and comments are driven by hatred, racial tension, anger, disrespect, lack of social skills, or, that old evil; boredom.

 

I seem to remember that, in the days of the Citizen Band Radios (also known as CB radio); some of YOUR ancestors also took to the airwaves, broadcasting their vitriolic drivel. This has happened again with the Internet – as a direct result of the fact that when YOU get hold of a piece of sophisticated equipment, that allows YOU to remain anonymous and untouchable, YOUR true nature comes to the surface.  

 

In most cases YOU will never post an article. Probably because YOU cannot string two original thoughts together. Yet, as soon as an article is posted, (some of them really good and well researched), YOU climb onto YOUR misbegotten keyboard and spread YOUR idiocy.

 

It is also clear that YOU are not doing the job you where employed to do. This can be deduced from the fact that all YOUR comments are posted during working hours.

 

As for me? I am happily retired and love to read the comments and posts of the 5% (another thumb suck) of contributors, which do not include YOU.

Ban Hunting Now!

This is far too emotional an issue, it should be dealt with realistically. There are risks to conservation if hunting is banned ... like it or not. Read more...
