I don't mean this in a malicious way, but sometimes I really do wonder about the sanity of some people on this site. I can't say which ones because I
don't know, I don't really pay attention to who is posting, and despite having been here a couple of years now, I don't really have 'friends' here as
such, I'm just a bit of a loner, and post here and there.
But sometimes I read posts and I think to myself a couple of things.
Lets say for example, that the Boston marathon was a legit, straight up, hate crime against America, perpetrated by two (or more) extremists. Hundreds
of people were injured. Thirteen people had limbs amputated. Three people died. There is such a shocking lack of empathy, of sympathy, of pretty much
any 'appropriate' reaction to the fact that many people have just been so viciously hurt.
Like... whats up with that? Is this site frequented by so many psychopaths, that they don't care that so many people have been hurt, that they're
willing to deny legitimacy of this attack, that they would call these people actors?
And the other thing, though it's kinda silly, but those kinds of people would be exactly the kinds of people I would avoid at a party. You know the
ones, the ones who stand by the drinks and try to entice anyone who will listen into a discussion about governmental subterfuge, and conspiracy
theories, and like, for real, who wants to be THAT guy?
People are trying to claim photoshop to a photo of Jeff Bauman holding his race sign, and rather than listen to (imo, sense) an explanation as to why
they might be wrong, they'd rather ignore you, or draw you into some kind of argument, because you think differently. And others here are more willing
to go along with some of the most absurd crap I've ever heard, than put their thinking caps on, and consider that, hey, wait a minute, thats a fair
point, and I might be wrong.
The thing that got me about the whole thing, is that it's just a picture of him with two women. What purpose does this photo serve, other than to show
he was supporting a race. Oh he has the same shirt on as in the pictures of him in the wheelchair. Well I've got clothes I wear to work out in that
I've had a long time too, it doesn't mean anything. What would be the point in photoshopping a picture that doesn't show anything?
It's totally ok to disagree, it's absolutely fine to think someone else is talking shizzle, but there is a line between discussion, and being tactful
and politely disagreeing and agreeing to disagree, and calling someone names because you don't know how to evaluate other opinions other than your
