To Avoid Slander, Avoid Reveling in Nasty Gossip [View all]

Last edited Sat Dec 21, 2019, 09:08 PM - Edit history (1)

What kind of high school kid were you?

Asked because in recent years and all too often politics is reminiscent of high school gossip. He said, she said stuff.

Without a litany of life experiences, talking about others, sports, weather, and consumerism is all kids have to keep their conversations in play.

But adults engaged in the serious business of politics would be better served with policy discussions seeking solutions 😂😂

Laughing because almost half of Americans have returned to their most negative high school conversational vapidity with an emphasis on hateful gossip.😭😭😭

Crying because our Third Estate Free Press seems to revel in repeating the screeds.

Like it or not, we are engaged in a

WAR of WORDS

Some really hateful comments are being woven within our mostly civil and informative conversations. And what’s with the thread-jacking.

Have you noticed?

Makes one wonder how many of those uttering phrases the “other side”’could use to disparage this community are, in fact, working for the “other side”

Many have been muted; however, if Twitter and Facebook have moved to remove “bad players” perhaps we need a method to report those who seem to intentionally do DU a disservice like a good troll should.

Is there a method of reporting suspected DU BOTS?

We must win The 2020 War of Words!
