A couple of users who wanted to are Racistbassist and Heliopolis, (sp on that last stupid name). They decided that they'd like to spend a few hours of their time spamming up my last blog post with 108 comments each a few pages long.
Well, it took all of 30 seconds to delete them with help, so boys, sorry all that effort was wasted, I suggest next time you spend the effort on something worthwhile, I.E likely to MEAN something.
'Meaning' something Sarai?
Meaning is defined as having a purpose. In an ideal world everyone's actions would have a generally positive impact on others.
In reality, some decisions have to be made that are bad for a group of people (or person) in exchange for benifits for the majority (EG, me being demodded!) heh. In nasty reality, the powerful sometimes just make decisions for themselves.
On Newgrounds there is not that much that is 'meaning'. We post, we score flash, we chat, we make some e-friends. Lots of what we do is worthwhile here. In the greater context of the internet it is also worthwhile to spend time developing friendships and making other people happy.
That is why people like Monocrom, Jade, El-Duego, Mick and others make good use of their time, they make people happy.
Contrast this to the users I mentioned above whose activities are by themselves. They do things for themselves only, against the benifit of the majority.
This is because they are selfish and self-centered. RaccistB in real life could never talk down and call someone who is older than him bv probably at least ten years a cunt 100 times to her face. So he does it on the internet to make his little e-pen... ego bigger. He gets a kick from calling a woman a cunt on the internet and spending an hour spamming her blog.
He is the kind of person who doesn't have the guts in real life to be strong, but is a slimey little character who takes out his frustrations on the internet, behind the barrier of anonimity it provides. His actions are for himself and benifit himself only. It's sad isn't it?
But it's the Internet Sarai!
The internet is still real people communicating with each other. As more and more interaction becomes e-based (eg business, instant messaging, etc) the need to be mature and have your real personality shine through gets stronger and stronger.
Those of us who are stuck in the past, with fake personality, or worse, letting their bad sides out on the internet because they need an ego boost and going to get left behind. For example when RaccistBasist starts a job in the future, his employer will search his e-history, Myspace, Newgrounds, anywhere they can find out about him. They'll find out he went around calling people cunts all the time and that he defends child pornography and they won't hire him.
Are you prepared?
My story is expecting a new chapter today ;-) Hint hint. I am also looking forward to more by El-Deugo and the start of Monocrom's and Zen's stories.
Oh, and what the hell are you waiting for? GET DANCING
