If You Don\'t Have Anything Nice To Say, Cruise Around the Internet And Spread That Joy, Sunshine

Nearly every video, web site, Facebook page and anything else you will see online will have an option that allows you to comment on it. If you were there to find new information, to review old information or for a legitimate reason and need to voice your displeasure, that is one thing but there are people who do only that. They travel and hop from site to site to site to be negative, foul and in some cases outright abusive and they show up no matter what kind of site you are dealing with. Even the most positive of causes or happiest of videos is not immune to these Debbie Downers and Dudley Do Rights and they are really getting kind of out of hand.

It is kind of amusing until you realize that it is actually very frustrating. If you are on Facebook and you see a page that proclaims it is about something or another and you do not agree with that subject wouldn't the reasonable thing be to just go on about your merry way? Go on and update your status, play Bubble Witch or whatever 'Ville you are playing and just leave things alone. Most people do get that but then there are the others. They feel they have to interject. They have a point they want to make. They know everything and it's not just on one topic or genre of topics, either. They know everything about everything and oh, boy, we all need to know that!

A case in point: being the new year, there are a lot of challenges, diets and weight loss programs that are just getting kicked off. One of those, a very popular cereal brand, has a page with the information for joining their challenge. Now, if you don't think that this plan would work for you, then you should not come to the page and start commenting. And, if you don't think that it should work for anyone and do not have an MD, RD or other form of credential behind your name, you should also keep silent. That does not stop them, though. Everyone is very eager to get started, everyone is very reassuring with one another until that one person shows up to ruin the party.

They tell you that you are abusing your dog, cat, kid or pet turtle on the YouTube video that you posted. They tell you that your choice of religion, lifestyle, political party or even school affiliation is wrong. They will tell you what your future holds and any number of other opinions that were never asked for and you just cannot avoid them. Like Zombies, they seem to multiply in rapid manner, have no brains and absolutely no social skills but at least they are easier to deal with.
