Google android and chill: Writers are people, too

Disagreeing is awesome. Being hurtful isn’t.

I truly love peanut butter swirl ice cream. If I worked someplace and it was my work to write about ice cream and am was to compare peanut butter swirl to chocolate or even cherry vanilla, I would inform you I think peanut butter swirl is better. I can say why I think it’s better — peanut butter trumps the lack of peanut butter, in any configuration, not just a swirly one. Even though it lacks the delicious bits of meaty maraschino cherry it might be still better because of peanut butter to me. If I’ll express my preference, it will probably be swirly and peanutty unless someone can invent your favorite ice cream that tastes like fried chicken.

100 people will have 100 different opinions. Every single one of these is valid, but 99 of them won’t match yours.

If ice cream weblogs exist (I’m not sure plus afraid if I look I will never leave) that means there will be a lot of people out there who differ and think their dark chocolate is better than my peanut butter swirl. Some would take time to comment on articles about ice cream and tell me why these people think I’m wrong. I would enjoy reading those feedback because I’m really happy everyone doesn’t have the same opinion. But others would declare the Peter Pan and Skippy coalition is paying out me under the table to ruin the good name associated with Neapolitan or whatever these people like, and I’m no longer to be trusted whenever I actually write another article. Other people would go further plus insult me and berate me because I like peanut butter swirl better than anything.

That sounds really small and stupid, doesn’t this? Know what? It’s just as small and stupid when it’s about phones and not ice cream.

Previously month or so I’ve observed writers derided and berated for having an opinion. Even worse, We have seen their family insulted, their bodies made fun associated with, their sexual orientation asked and the size of their genitalia (both length and girth) remarked on. I truthfully can’t understand it and am left with the sensation of WTF man, WTF. It’s just a phone, guy. Stop.

Ridiculous comments won’t alter anything except how others think about the person making them.

To be clear, there are relatively few people doing this sort of clips. It’s not terrible here at AIR-CON, though some do press the limit. (You understand who you are. ) When it’s performed to me I don’t care. If I can think of some thing I feel is witty to reply with I’ll do it because I’m a bit of an asshole, but otherwise, We chuckle and move on to another thing. Hearing that I need to take all the money Google pays me for good reviews and get bigfoot’s ass hair surgically removed from my face was pretty funny. Yet others who do what I do for a living may find it very hurtful. That will does bother me. Wish people writing about phones or even game consoles or another cool tech products. Abuse — and to be clear, which exactly what behavior like this is usually — is never a pretty thing. Nobody deserves it, regardless of what they have said or typed.

The internet is a big place filled with people who don’t think the same way. Whether it’s regarding phones or politics or even sports nobody has the right to abuse another person because they stated something you didn’t like. We’re just regular people doing our job. Part of our job is to be publicly judged in open comments by people from all over the world. No matter what we say there will be people that disagree. This isn’t about disagreement. You should never stop voicing your opinion, no matter what anyone else states. I am also pretty sure that will nobody wants any tech writer to lie about what they like or hate to stave off shit comments. I can’t think of one good cause anyone would be so forceful and ignorant to another person because of words. I’ve get to the conclusion that if you feel a need to get toxic when you talk about phones you should talk to an expert about your feelings. If you do this “for the lulz” you aren’t just an asshole.

If you want people to listen to what you have to say, be respectful. It works.

I’m not trying to say you should like the peanut butter swirl as much as I do. Nor are I saying your viewpoint is any less valid than mine or anybody else’s. I’m just saying you don’t have to be a jerk about this. Being cool to other individuals — especially when you don’t concur — never hurt anyone.

Have a recipe for the best ice cream of them all and remember to help keep things chill.
