Reading all the items on the list, I must say I am happy to be more of a consumer and less of a contributing type. If I have an opinion I write it and if someone else has an opinion they can react. I don't go searching for deeper meanings or react to someones opinion as I endorse freedom of speech.
Flaming, Trolling all these terms are quite new for me although I do understand the concepts. Perhaps the time has come to look at reactions on how you normally do this in real life. Everyone has an opinion, some are not to the point for a conversation going on. During a conversation such remarks are very often ignored in a gentle way. I suggest we take online conversations more like real life conversations and start ignoring more. Isn't being social all about ignoring each others flaws?
