Here Be Monsters
So in the last post I spewed all over the place about the cowardly little fucktards who populate the comments sections and Twitter accounts of the Inter webs. Today I’m going to be much more solutions oriented. Let’s fix this problem once and for all. We just need a name, an address, and a fist.
Why does everyone get to be anonymous on the internet? No, really. I have to take responsibility for everything I say and do in the real world. I can criticize or insult anyone I’d like but I have to put my name and my face with it. I have to own the action and, more importantly, I have to deal with it’s repercussions. That’s a good thing. So let’s bring the virtual world into the real one. When everyone goes online they should have to sign in with a name and a face. No exceptions.
There’s already an example of this. It’s called Facebook. I can post all kinds of weird shit and carry on about things but I have to sign in first. The same is true of my websites. I might say and do outrageous things but my name, picture, and contact information are right there for everyone to see. I’m not a technology guy but this wouldn’t seem too complicated to achieve.
Once we see who’s saying what and where they are there’s one more crucial step we need to take. It’s going to have to be legal to punch people in the nose. It’s the only reasonable response to cowardly internet trolls. Go ahead, tell me I suck or that some woman should be raped. Now I get to hit you. Oh, does that change what you’d say? I thought so.
I’d like to point out here that of you don’t like the loss on anonymity you might need to examine your life. What are you so ashamed that people might see? Maybe you should own it or stop it. Or get punched in the nose. Saor Alba, Vaya con Dios, & Viva la Revolucion.
