Anonymous Keyboard Warriors on AFF


I was scrolling through some of the email we receive on AdultFriendFinder and something dawned on me.....not just about AdultFriendFinder, but, about technology in general.

While the internet has been great in helping bring people together, and, helping people in many ways (i.e. you happen to have a particular fetish, while,being on AdultFriendFinder, you likely learn you are not alone, and, perhaps get to find someone to indulge in your fetish because they are into it as well), the prevalence of the 'net has also helped create a new type of personality...

The anonymous keyboard warrior.

These are people that hide behind a keyboard and the internet to spew venow or pass judgement on you or I. These same people often times tend to be crass, bold and outright rude. They would never dream of walking up to me or to us in a supermarket or even at a bar and saying things like they feel they can on here,and, the reason is the same, they can hide behind the anonymous nature of a keyboard and an Internet connection.

So, to all the A.K.W.'s out there, here is a better idea - before you approach me to say something dumb or rude or really in bad taste, stop and think, if you were standing in front of me - would you be willing to say it to my face, to our faces? If the answer is no, save yourself the time, save me the annoyance and keep it to yourself. I am comfortable with myself, with the choices I am making, with what I am looking for, I really don't need you to validate it or try to devalue it.

Good thought.

However, it's the anonymous part that gives them the courage. It's kinda like beer muscles, or the 100# nerd taking on the Captain of the Football team at recess. No matter how much you wish them away, it won't happen.

Best to concentrate on the intelligent crowd and bask in the compliments from those who care.

Thanks for the comments/insight Grib....

And, we realize the anonymous part is what facilitates the courage....doesn't make it any less annoying.....though, on occasion, what comes out is so ludicrous, it is actually somewhat amusing, so, maybe that is the silver lining in all of this....anyhow, off to read more emails from guys with clever insights such as 'Nice Tits' or 'My Cock is way bigger'.....lol
