I’ve noticed that over the last few years that in certain places on the internet people are getting more vicious, horrible and generally vile online.
It sickens me that people think it is acceptable to treat others this way just because they are hidden behind a keyboard or a phone.
I have been using a particular website for many years now, and I have made some really good friends through it who I talk to nearly every day and consider them my closest friends, they know more about me that most people.
However, in the last three days, I have been the target of vicious attacks from trolls saying that I am a creep and a pervert. This has genuinely made me angry, and the worst part is that I can’t respond to them because that is just a losing battle and I would have no chance of winning. All it takes is one person to start then all the idiots join in and pile on.
There have been a few people stepping up to defend me on this site, but they are few and far between. On anything, i have commented on in the last few days there they are attacking me.
I am genuinely hurt by these idiots, and I don’t know what to do. I don’t want to let them win and stop using the site I am on every single day.
I know that they are just trying to get a rise out of me, but I just want to have a good laugh and see some funny posts and on occasion have discussions with other people.
The one that annoyed me the most is there was someone on there genuinely asking for help from people as this girl has gone through a similar experience that I have, and I offered her someone to talk to and some advice. And low and behold within ten minutes there was some fucking troll straight in there telling her that I am a creep and only trying to screw her.
I don’t know these people, and I am really sick of them. I have been fighting them for a long time when they go after others, now it seems like it’s my turn. I can take it, and I’m not going to let them win. I just hate the fact that this is the world that we live in now where people think this is acceptable behaviour.
I pray to God that my daughter will not be brought up like that, She will be taught to respect people in the same way that I was.
Anyway, thats my rant for now. I just what to ask has anyone else been through something like this?
