A Tip to Fellow Internet People
This applies to you regardless of what you do online. You’re always going to have to deal with people who hate you from time to time, even if you can’t really figure out why. They’ll take everything you say and find a way to hate you over it. They’ll twist things around, take things out of context, or just take a small fraction of what you said and assume you meant something completely different despite having the opportunity to just question you on it. You won’t be given the benefit of the doubt, and that’s okay.
As frustrating as it is, you’ll never win those people over. You’ll probably be accused of all kinds of crazy stuff, but it’s just not worth the fight. The time you’ll spend trying to explain to them the full story is just a waste, because most times, they’ll just disregard you.
No matter what you’re doing or what your plans may be, if someone is throwing insults at you and accusing you of something over the most throw-away of statements without simply asking for clarification or discussing it with you reasonably, you have something much better to do than try to talk to them about it. If you want to talk about it, talk about it to someone who treats you as an equal, not as an idiot.
