It looks to me like alot of people don’t know how to act. Whether it is people who are on all of the tv talkshows, or even wind up getting their own reality show, some people are mental. I think this is causing allot of the fears online, and the assumptions that people who are single and of a certain age must have problems… I think everyone should be looked at on their own merits.
Alot of people are getting overlooked, based on assumptions and imagined garbage, instead of treated like everyone else in society.
I have heard alot about autism & aspergers, and I know like 4-5 people with autism… Some people say that one of my friends has it, yet he’s not like some people that just drool online or that have no social skills, so I doubt that is the case.
If someone expects a certain level of “order”, or that eeverything is in it’s place just because, does that make them autistic? I think most everyone, after they reach a certain age, knows to pick up their stuff.
I think when it comes to the Internet, alot of people should be more willing to learn how to create new content and take time to meet people. I think people that have never tried to learn are afraid to, because of all of the assumptions.
People should do what they feel they need to do, and at the same time be responsible… My family is the type that assumes that only newpsapers or tv stations are allowed to post online.
I have seen that alot of people don’t really want to find out that they what they think about strangers or the Internet in general isn’t altogether true… People meet each other in any number of ways, that is no reason for anyone to be afraid of people with the same interests or that show their support… That is a normal part of society.
I think alot of people don’t really know all they claim to, so they want to have assumptions of other people to basically cover themselves, or even “look smart”
I have learned alot about blogging, I think it is so cool to have a way to express myself & show people what I know about. This is what the Internet about, not all the fears of everyone before they know what they are about or involved with.
Blogging about topics or commenting on forums is more worth the time it takes, than so many whom are somewhat scared of the Internet. Using comon sense should remove or diminish the unrealistic fears.
What’s up, everyone? I have noticed that certain people still want to be selfish & think they “know it all”. I hink these are the people don’t know anythiing & have no self-esteem.
The more active & interactive everyone is, whether online or offline, the less paranoid they need to be about other people that they know nothing about. This makes me wonder how people will act in 20-30 years.
Most people take their time to learn things offline, so why not do the same when it comes to the Internet?!
I have seen that some people are scared to treat certain people normally. It’s like they don’t believe people that they don’t trust should have a “normal life”. I think that is a civil rights violation. Who decides, if someone is minding their own business, that they are not allowed to? That seems unfair.
I think, when people have friends & know how to do certain things, that shows that they are not a threat or concern the rest of society. Some people just want to use their own opinion to disallow some people to have a normal life.
Everyone is making numerous mall runs, to get Christmas gifts. I think most people should get as many things taken care of each time, to reduce the number of trips. This will reduce the number of travel trips, so people can spend more time with the family.
Alot of people, when their family is all spread out, have to travel a long way. I only see alot of my cousins at the holidays or during the summer. Since people are far apart, e-mail & texting always come into play.
I have seen that way too many people are pretty passive online. Whether people are younger or older, they should just use common sense rules and learn some new skills.
It bothers me, that so many can be disrespectful to so many people that they never take the time to get to know. I think alot of people, because of things they only know halfway, have some biased judgments.
Helping friends learn things, or interacting with everyone who has a computer, is not something to be afraid of.
If someone has their own computer & knows alot about the Internet, can they be kicked offline for someone else’s misguided opinions… Most people use their skills to make the most of things, not for anything that they shouldn’t. I would say that 90% of people know better.
In some cases, I think alot of people insert their own opinions instead of looking at the facts and the situation. Someone wanted to insist that my friend install & pay for a keylogger/screengrab program. That is basically forcing them to use spyware.
It looks like there are alot of people, many with limited knowledge, that never really take the time to learn what they don’t know or have a passion for. This is why so many are having so many online fears, or get scared in big cities.
Pretty much everyone grows up learning how to act in society & in most cases have no problems with social interactions. This is one reason that, if people used chats, made websites, and used the Internet, they would see is wo is doing what they should or shouldn’t.
I would like to talk about the people who seem to be obsessed with the thought that some people have no rights… If you don’t know them & they’re doing nothing wrong, why should anyone avoid beng friendly & hanging out.
People who have all of the assumptions should take a look and see whether or not they are valid concerns. Being scared of everyone, just because, is not normal.
People should take time getting to know each other.
I wonder how far some people will go, just to assume that some people have no right to socialize or be accepted in society. Is that ok, and who has the right to do those assessments? When do people lose the right to get on with their lives…
This i an act of bullying andand harassment. If someone has private property, that is perfectly allowed, is the normal use of it some type of of an offense… Thats sound like a personal issue, not a legal one.
I would like to talk about some lengths thatI have heard some people are going to,in order to act like a friend of mine has no right to privacy or a normal social life. Can police & law enforcement do that, is that part of their job?
I think this is a civil rights issue, just because someone doesn’t respect another, to assume that they have no personal rights, not even to be social, much ike everyone else. How do peopel lose those rights & who decides? Do people have to provide the police with personal passwords & other secure information?
I would like to talk about what I think about something that my friend is going to, which amounts to pure harassment…

What people are doing to Mike is striping him of all rights ad uman dignity, based on something that expired 6 months ago… Is that allowed, under any circumstance? I think people who are looking for reasons are missing the entire point.
How can someone be harassed by people that are to “serve and protect society”?
I think both parents and kids should learn from each other, especially when it comes to the Internet… Not everyone poses a risk or danger, despite what so many older people believe.
I am sure glad to learn all I can about computers and the Internet, because it can come in handy! I have seen where they have a college class for adults, and it’s basically the same thing at school, ust for older students… That maes me think that alot of people need to “catch up”.
I have seen some people online that talk tough online,but knowing how they are, it amazes me how they can turn on a computer…
When it comes to bullies and mean people, wehether online or offline, it can be pretty easy to handle… All anyone needs is a little common sense.
Alot of people like that are just looking for attention… Trying to include them in activities or using humor can sometimes get them to laugh at themselves & see how dumb they look.
If it goes too far & crosses some serious lines, then other more drastic things can be done, depending on the situation.
I think it’s always good to have plenty of friends in your corner..
I think parents, teachers, and other older people don’t really give teenagers that much credit. Everyone learns new things at their own pace… The younger you are, the easier it is.
My grandparents told me, that since younger people learn things in school, it is all just learned & adapted to… But when you’re 20-30, you know alot of things already, so most people get too busy to try new things.
I can see that, even with my friends… They are all so different, even dealing with some of the same things.
I think it’s good for parents to be involved, but just not too pushy.
Whether it is a website, an e-book, or a video channel, everyone should spend time embracing & learning about technology. There is no reason to be scared of things that are assumed… Alot of things can be disproven with just a little bit of critical thinking.
Learning computer and online skills isn’t hard… I have noticed, by what a friend of mine told me, that some things are interesting to everyone, while other things aren’t even looked for, even when it should peak interest to the masses…
Alot of people seem limited in the things they know, or want to learn about.
Looks like my friend and I might be starting our static pages over, since all the other articles from last summer are pretty much out-dated. Things online are permanent, yet their “shelf-life”, as far as relevance, will expire in several weeks.
Alot of people seem scared to learn, just because they have alot of opinions about things that they know little about… I think people need to start looking into things, instead of being so afraid of everything and everyone.
I think people assume that only big companies and businesses have the right to be online.
