Reason User Banned (1 Week): Inflammatory false equivalencies
I mean... this might be slightly off-topic but lately I visit 4chan quite a lot because of apparant leaks coming from there and after visiting that place for a while I somehow ended up spiraling down in that same behaviour and it kinda made me not enjoy reading anything there, yet I come back for more. That is to say as long as you are between a group of certain unruly people that like to hate/vent/be edgy “for fun” even while I myself do not feel like participating I automatically drift that direction regardless because I’m surrounded by it. Which kinda worries me, because it kinda shows how easy it is to spiral out of control without intentionally doing so and ending up joining the ideology of the unruly, resentful side. coming here on Era I sometimes think that this place is able to breed haters as well by the harsh way they condemn certain things against commenters that don’t necessarily have bad intentions and by not tolerating these people that do not yet see things the right way you scare them off to the opposite way... maybe because they want to understand but now they feel left out and end up joining the other side where they can say ResetEra is just as bad a place as any other. That might actually be part of the bigger problem as well in my opinion. By being so passionaly heated by justice people tend to forget that the strong should protect the weak, not scare them off and hate them for not yet understanding. I hope I was able to explain my intention well, I’m not a native english speaker but my message has nothing else in it but willingness to learn, please remember that when I might have said something possibly stupid, I gave this post a lot of thought.
