How to be polite on the Internet
The invasion of Internet in our daily lives happened so fast that many of us did not even have time to notice how exotic entertainment and searching the global network has turned into some kind of sub-reality, the shape of your (and my) existence, in which, was strikingly different from the usual offline life.
Anonymity and incorporeality of those creatures that live and interact in our place in the network became too strong a temptation for many. Sometimes it is scary how much different digital the human «I» from its physical counterpart. And the point here is not that you put on your pic in the VC titted blonde, and that blonde hot Tits though and says your voice (read: typing with your hands), but there is a concentration of all the most vile characteristics of human where you live even suspect difficult.
We do not mean about professional trolls and other fans of fake, deliberately constructing different identities online, we are talking about ordinary users that allow online what you would never do in reality. Especially in terms of communication.
If you have not completely lost the conscience in a senseless outrage, and, at times, you come to the realization that puts you, read below: remember, if you want to remain human on the Internet.
1. Real people
Communicating in a network, always remember that «the other end» there is always a live person, same as you. In a situation where the conversation occurs with a closed mouth and the only sound that accompanies it — the sound of a finger tapping on the keyboard, and instead of a face of the interlocutor in front of your eyes is a glowing screen full of icons and pictures, it is easy to forget that even this communication is still communication, that is, the contact between two living beings. Moreover, the contact of people.
2. Eye to eye
Never say on the Internet that would not be able to tell the person in the face. As soon as I feel the desire to blurt out something particularly daring, immediately I can imagine what would happen if you do it offline.
In order to use self-discipline when registering in social networks or on any other sites his real name. You will be surprised, but the simple inscription, copy the relevant column in a passport, will keep you from making statements of this kind, or nature that you will not be able to be proud of in the future. You will be much more difficult to abstract from their own «I», if («I»), at least at the level name to be similar to you really.
4. Do not rush
Bet you it happened: Internet discussion of the match Russia-Algeria whetted you more than the failure of the national team in the championship. And here you write another angry comment, click «send.».And the next morning it hurts to look at all this idiocy, which is why he took an active part.
Just take your time. Breathe in, breathe out, brew tea, and then open the browser and write down what you really want to write, not what you pushes your anger.
Or not write anything at all.
5. Do not write
As a wise man once said: «Sometimes better to chew, than to speak». No, seriously, just tell me: who convinced you that you have to write something? How the hell did the idea that you must comment on each proposed issue. The Internet is swarming with such pretexts. You so for a long time is not enough, man.
Isn’t it better, again, to drink tea and surprised to find something like that a minute ago you were excited to tremble at the knees, five minutes turned into a «Yes to whom it generally is necessary?».
6. Be nice
Instead like many other inhabitants of the network in any object or phenomenon ignore the worst and then make it to a discussion, try to try on the role of the good commentator. Note the positive qualities you have just read the article, because they certainly are.
