Prepare for the fallout.

Prepare for the fallout.

 

While growing up, many adults offered good advice like, “Do not wake up the sleeping bear." “Don’t poke a hornet’s nest.” Or “Let the sleeping dog lie.” "Don't shake a burdened tree." All for good reason.

 

Conversations on social media platforms create an opportunity to share information between one another, to catch up, to teach, to learn and grow. Relationship building  comes from like-mindedness and healthy respect.


 
Some people see on-line conversations as an opportunity to angrily deflect, verbally purge, to be heard above everyone else, at any cost to those present. It is an intentional act and clear lack of respect to all!


 
Let's face it, there are those who: 

  • feel the need to pick apart another's words
  • insert themselves just for argument's sake
  • or attack those who share differing opinions

 
Opposing views are welcomed, clicking off and moving along works too. Showing superiority, incessantly ranting on-line is a good enough judge of character and not acceptable by any standard in my world.

 

Don't come around shaking my tree too hard, you just might get some fallout and I'm a pretty good aim!

You know that is very true faye schubert, keyboard cowards hide behind their computers but if someone they hated on ever showed up at their door, I imagine they'd be hesitant to open it!

On a positive note Ron and Alexandra Seigel, a burdened tree produces wonderful fruit and I am looking forward to our orchard coming to life again in the spring!

There is always someone that does that and I just keeping scrolling or use the unfriend or delete button Carla Freund. My tolerance level for that type of attention mongering has waned!

Past experiences teach us and I was a quick learner in some cases, Bob "RealMan" Timm. One time, I had a stick and was playing with a black widow spider web to show my brothers and sisters. She shot out of there, I screamed (yes, like a girl) and I almost fell backward with fright!

My elders were wise with life experiences to share and I enjoyed listening to their stories, Will Hamm. When my brothers and sisters were out playing, I'd be stuck to my Grampa's side!

Most of them do it to see if they can get a rise out of those present, Nina Hollander, Broker. I'm not interested!

Hi Wanda- Social media has given us a virtual mask (as in a masquerade party, not the other kind) where we forget that in person, we probably would never say those things.

Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! - I'm in the same camp with you and Carla Freund!

NextDoor is festered with indignation! It should be removed and censored. Obviously, it's not working. Funny how you have to stop and think... one of the first things locked down at the beginning of the pandemic was all churches; yet the platforms like NextDoor continued to thrive and rile people up.

I rarely even get on social media these days and it is even rarer for me to even comment on something, haha.

Hello Wanda - I am not familiar with the saying about burdening trees but the concept is well-known.

I ignore those who incessantly rant, argue just to argue, or pick others apart. I have an area-related FB page which sometimes pulls in those kinds of people - I don't care if people disagree, but if there is any truly hateful or arguing type conversation that goes on, I just delete it. Life's too short.

Some keyboard warriors are real and then there are social media bots that mimic human behavior. Both can be vicious, Kathy Streib. They are not welcome in my day-to-day!

Years ago, I was invited to join, Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP . It serves a purpose but so do community pages. Nextdoor is just another place for unhappy people to bring others into their drama-rama, I declined!

The fallout can definitely hurt the noggin Michael Jacobs. Beware of falling fruit or an important life lesson!

A difference of opinion is expected as long as respectful but some are unable to do that and soon, it's a free-for-all toxic diatribe. I click off or scroll on to avoid, Kat Palmiotti! No time for that nonsense.
