Apparently I’m a Waste of Time: One Commenter’s View of My Presence Online

There’s social media and there’s antisocial media, as I was reminded last night.

    Hi Tim,
    I hope you don’t let this behaviour get to you. I, like others, experience this on a daily basis on sites such as YouTube. The personal attacks, disparaging remarks, abusive comments, dismissive and condescending attitudes…
    If they’re not having a go at you, they’ll find someone else. Many times, if you can stay with the person – depending on the nature and context of the person and comments – there is, most times, a turn around and things settle down into a more constructive discussion.
    Just remember, it’s not REALLY personal…just someone venting their spleen.
    If they’re having a go at you, this means you’ve protected some poor person, who may not be able to handle it.
    I’m sure there may have been times, when I wanted to horse-whip some of these people myself…if I could have found a horse!! 🙂

    Hi Tim, Just know that your presence on Twitter, etc., has Never been a “waste of my time” ! @BethMooreLPM and others call these people “Twitter Trolls”… And, many times I have had to block some of them; but, having Negative people try to invade my Twitter tweets; or people I care about, doesn’t bother me one bit! I, for one, enjoy reading and listening to your tweets! May God continue to bless you, especially during this Christmas week! In Christ’s Love, Jennifer O.
