Good to see you Skin. Write away. Never sweat the critics, sweat on the critics.

Good to see ya, Skin. I agree 100%. MLP is definitely a primer for interacting on social media. Real life too.

There are trolls everywhere. :laugh2:

my main gig these days is writing for the houston press, a media outlet in (surprisingly enough) the houston area. I cover all sorts of articles, from social/political stuff to music coverage and just ridiculous funny stuff.

Unsurprisingly, since my articles hit the internet and people are able to comment on them, they occasionally get lots of angry comments, or ones ranging from "furious and indignant" to just "angry and stupid". Along with positive ones too of course, although studies have shown that people most likely to comment on an article are the angry types.

It's all gravy to me, thickened my hide a lot, since i realized "wow, i get paid to write, and these folks are reacting like fish that someone dropped a lure in front of".

But i want to say, that a few years of participating here on mlp really helped teach me a bunch of lessons about interacting with folks online. It is a great primer on both the good and bad communication experiences out there, and taught me that it's perfectly acceptable, and often best to just walk away from a pointless argument.

This place is the best, so thanks for all of that.

I agree with Martin H.
I think "people" like "you" and what "they" "write" are the reason the Internets are so trash.
The fact that you're working in Houston shows how bad a city Houston is.
The whole of Texas actually.

If I ever get to read one of your so-called "article",
I'm sure it's gonna put me in a state of "furious and indignant" to just
"angry and stupid".

So just be advised and stop writing.
That is all.

P.S.: Now you better accept my friend's request on FB so I can follow
you and your ineptness or then you're gonna prove you're a real bum.
