Access: More Ro om For Stupid People
Mr. Vejita Valentine
I've been doing a little musing lately.
No, a lot of musing, actually, when browsing about the
wasteland known as the AOL scene. What I came across
was a wealth of stupidity. People typing "u"
instead of you, "y" instead of why, and IAFHRU
(I think it meant, "I am fine, how r u, feh.) and
such intelligent statements as "U SUCK UR CAT'S
*Ahem*. I began to wonder, where do all these stupid
people come from? I walk down the street, I don't see
people this dumb that often, maybe once in a while (particularly
when driving,) when it finally hit me.
Back in the early days, before online
was "trendy" or "cool" they're were
too many people online and about. The few of us who
did usually had more brain power then a gerbil (now
that fact is debatable), so it wasn't a big deal, but
it's the late 90s now. You are "behind the times"
if you don't have the Internet, and why not? It's fast,
it's easy, it provides with things nearly impossible
to find. This goes out to the students with the Internet,
stop and think. How much harder would school life be
without the net?
However, all things come at a price. The
answer to all these "newbies" running around,
the page pirates, the email harassers, the general f*ckin'
morons (as VegettoEX defined them). Is quite simple,
the easier something is, the more stupid people can
get a hold of it. Easy, ne? Well, let's start dissecting
First of all, I hate to say it, and you
probably don't think it very often, but most of the
newbies are most CERTAINLY under 12. I can safely say,
about 90% of these idiotic hateful mails are just brats.
This has been said with a touch of annoyance, but the
fact is, it's true. When people get on the net, they
become something they are not. The scrawny guy can tell
people he's 7 ft tall, weighs 350 pounds, and can lift
a Buick, and we as people don't know (an exaggeration).
So of course, these kids, who honestly don't think of
online people as "people" know FULL well that
they can get away with whatever they want around here.
Someone emails VegettoEX, Castor Troy, or Meri with
someone hateful letter, what is the most they can do
about it? Send a reply in anger, insulting them (which
is not to say they aren't justified). They can't do
anything about it, and the people KNOW that.
Which brings us to the "respect issue."
To be quite honest, online-wise, it's dead. Kids couldn't
care less what people think of them here. Most go on
with friends just to impress them by cracking idiotic
jokes. They think they're actually causing these people
to become angry.
All right, this is getting a little long
winded, and quite frankly, I could go on and on. Basic
rule no. 1 you idiotic, bad-spelling, lifeless Newbie
idiots. Get a clue, these people aren't getting paid
for this, they're not doing this so YOU can take what
THEY worked at and pretend it's yours. They're doing
this because they want the world to see what they like,
what they enjoy. Stop bugging them, stop harassing them,
stop emailing them. They don't care what you have to
say, and quite frankly, they don't WANT you to come
to their sites (did I mention this was Newbies only)?
Leave the Internet to us, because you're just one of
the millions that we click the little "block"
button for anyway.
Up late, Tired as Hell, and Fed Up.
Mr. Vejita Valentine. (Long Story)
