Gods that annoys me to no end. I spend the better part of most days arguing with people who come into the office and have printed pages of this and
that and since they got it from a google search it must be true.
The internet should come with a warning label, something like:
This is the internet, while a lot of what you will find here is pretty accurate, there is a growing number of things that are questionable,
and more and more sites every day that repost false and misleading topics.
Granted, there are a lot of things and places that have an accurate assessment of things going on, and we all know to take the major news sites with
the proverbial grain of salt, but when someone pops in and claims that Elvis is going to be the next Pope, and has been hidden in a Vatican Vault for
the past 30 someodd years, and they actually BELIEVE IT... well then there's a problem.
Which of course goes to my next point which is all the scams and shams and frauds out there that could get everyone into major issues.... "but I read
it on the Interwebz" is not a valid defense, you have a brain? USE IT for gods sake... Trolls? Don't get me started on them, people who have to
twist every statement to mean something it doesn't just to prove that they are somehow superior to everyone else, and are in reality compensating for
the fact that they live in mommy's basement crunching on pork rinds, and trying to find the perfect acne cream. The bravado from some of these
people amazes me, and it's getting to the point where these SAME people are now showing up in Real Life to try this stuff on the outside world, and
I mean does anyone REALLY think that you can just go up to someone and threaten them with being killed in a horrible manner? "But I did it on the
Interwebz, and I didn't get in trouble"
All I have to say is get some brain cells together, and realize, that at least 75% of what you see daily on the net, unless you're doing some uber
specific searching and know the sites you're going to are just vast repositories for known knowledge.. (Sorry folks Bibliotechapleyades does not
count as a tome of known knowledge) .. is probably to be taken with some sort of question, lest you try it in real life and find out that people
aren't as forgiving as they are online.......
