Dear reader, just wanted to write a short article, my humble point of view about what is happening right now in social networks, about the abuse and harassing of internet users. Please forgive my english and mistakes, you all know that is not my main language! I'll try to make my point as clear as possible!



When being “mean” is the cool thing.

Heya guys, so it seems internet is raging out, full of insults bad words and bad behavior. What brings me to ask myself what's the core, the root of the problem!? I found a lot of great people on my social network, and have not been a victim of abuse, just a little casual guy trying to get some advantage being anonymous but that's all.

I have give some thinking to that and I get to the conclusion that the root of the problem is “educational” meaning that the dude that is doing that abuse had been misseducated (that word doesn't seem to exist in the dictionary!).

One of the things I have seen that raise in fulgurant success on the net is the youtubers. Thousands of young kids from around the globe watch youtube videos lots of hours per day. And one thing that those videos have in common (not all, just is a perception) the more viewers it has the more mean (bad-tempered, callous, cantankerous, churlish, contemptible, dangerous, despicable, difficult, dirty, disagreeable, dishonorable, down, evil, formidable, hard, hard-nosed, ignoble, ill-tempered, infamous, knavish, liverish, lousy, low-down and dirty, malicious, malign, nasty, perfidious, pesky, rotten, rough, rugged, scurrilous, shameless, sinking, snide, sour, the lowest, touch, treacherous, troublesome, ugly, unfriendly, unpleasant, unscrupulous, vexatious, vicious, vile) is the youtuber with his/her points of view and ways to express.

At first those videos are funny to watch, if you are an educated person you will take them as they are, ┬ájokes and funny, burst of rage and whatsoever…

But what about kids? Young ones? They watch the videos for hours, and what they do is try to emulate that behavior in social medias. They took the words and repeat them, they charge against everything because is what they have seen it's the cool thing to do.

Of course, it's harder to say something meaningful that use bad words, bad language to charge against everything and everyone.

That's what I'm calling to youtubers. Youtube is so huge that has become a mirror to society, so people drink and see himself/herself reflected on that mirror.

So, please think on those kids that are watching you, don't think on the money or followers you are collecting, thinks as them as persons, as young impressionable dudes. Who will take your words and raise a flag with it.

Can we be more constructive, educative and nice with each other? Can we build a right place to people enjoy, have fun and learn stuff? Because watching videos it's coolest way to do that if they are made with love and care!

Let's keep positive! Love moves mountain!

  1. Yeah, I sometimes find my little brother watching videos with swear words. It all depends on whoever is supervising the kids I suppose
