I’ve been a on Social Media for a little more than seven years now. And in that time I have encountered the type of behavior that I thought I left behind in Elementary School. People being as brazenly-crass & disrespectful as undisciplined, and unruly children.
Recently I have virtually met some people whom I have developed quite a significant respect-for, and admiration-of. And although these people are considered to be “public figures” a term which people misinterpret often, they are still individuals with rights to respect and privacy.
But unfortunately there are some people in CyberSpace who lack integrity, humility, respect, and validation. These particular people spend their time and efforts sucking the energy out of others, and it is no coincidence that their common targets are always people of exceptional popularity.
These Energy Vampires if you will, are constantly speaking ill of popular people, but all of them are quickly offended when corrected by others.
What does it say about a person who has to constantly cast aspersions on others? What does it say about someone who has to insult others? Is it a feeling of self depreciation? Is it a feeling of uselessness and irrelevance? I’ve noticed that these types are always conceded and very full of haughtiness. Which comes as no surprise, if they would so expressively degrade others who are more acknowledged than they.
These types of people are a hindrance to the Social Evolution of this society, they keep many held back with their selfishness and disrespect. They deceive the current generation by making them think this type of behavior is okay, and simply a “freedom of expression”
These types of people should not be allowed to thrive, they are bullies in the purest sense of the term and must be made to suffer that which they have caused others to. If we are going to progress as an ever technologically-awakening Society, then these bullies have got to be weeded out and disabled.
If you don’t care for someone, theim being a celebrity or popularized does not give you the obligation to insult them. You can dislike someone without publicly disparaging them, and to their employer no less. Meanwhile, hiding behind an Avatar and Screen Name so that your employer, assuming that you do work, isn’t privy to your delinquency.
