One interesting aspect of the internet is it is considered one of the most “human” media of all. This is due to its “social” functions in our lives such as Social Networking Sites (facebook, twitter, friendster, etc.), e-mail services, forums and many other things that connect people via the world wibe web. this aspect is generally referred to as the New Social Media. it basically connects people from all over the world, making the largest community the world has ever seen, comprising of basically just about everyone with an Internet connection and a computer. Of course if you lump all these people together, you’re bound to encounter one of the most bittersweet aspect of human life, conflict. This may be bad or good depending on the situation, and what’s better is it could even be funny at times.
Some people just can’t get along
Jejemons VS The Grammar Police
One of the most popular issue in the Philippines in the year 2010 and its not the elections.
People that tYpF LyK dizs are considered jejemons and is now a growing sensation here in the Philippines. They got their name from their signature laugh “Jejeje” and is hellbent on elongating words to make it “kewler”
The natural enemy of the jejemon are the Grammar Police. They enforce rules that govern how a language should be used. The reason for their hate is justified by their personality. Add in the fact that jejemonism is the exact opposite of minimalism, making the alteration of language detrimental instead of beneficial.
Trolls VS Anti Trolls
An interesting match up. In the earlier match, the participants directly antagonize each other in hopes of shaming the other person enough that he or she will change her life. This fight requires a more strategic approach.
Trolls are commonly found in online discussions and forums. They post inflammatory,extraneous, or off-topic messages with the intent to simply piss you off. Its what happens when you give a bored, pathetic and intellectually challenged being a computer and an internet connection.
It does sound annoying but a true troll killer will not reply with, “WTF!!!! STOP TROLLING!!! YOU @*&%#!”. The best thing to do when handling trolls is to simply ignore it and let it flame itself to death. It can be a long and arduous process but that’s just about the only easy way to treat troll infestations.
There are two types of both sides. Trolls are either Pure Trolls or they are Trolls disguised as Anti Trolls. Pure Trolls insult you, the other insults the Pure Troll on your behalf. People will then cheer on the “Anti Troll” and you’ll have yourself a flame war in a couple of minutes. See the beauty of this strategy?
Anti trolls on the other hand are classified as those who do their job by doing nothing, and those who screw their job by doing something. Do not reply to the trolls. Doing so will make you a failure of an Anti Troll.
I already mentioned trolls in one of my blogs but I wanted to add a little more to it.
There are lots of other interesting Matchups out there is the world wide web. Can you think of others?
