Subject: RE: BS: Why I am gone
For what it's worth here's my feeble contribution:-
I can't for the life of me understand why people get so hurt, incensed, upset and mortally offended by some words on a computer screen. If one is getting hot under the collar, turn the darned thing off. It's not as if the posters are knocking on the front door of your house or banging on the window pane. They don't even know who you are or where you live. I'm very saddened for example by these recent cases of youngsters committing suicide because of 'cyber bullying'. Why couldn't they just stop visiting that site and look at something else? I've read some nasty things on Mudcat, but I haven't ground my teeth down to the gums in shock. It would be nice if folk restrained themselves a bit. But there's no need to get your knickers in a twist or leave completely. I really like most of the people on here, and enjoy visiting Mudcat.
