I say, don’t that make you feel a whole lot better
What you say?
I’m just askin’” —
This week I learnt a little lesson about online group intimidation against me. I posted a tweet criticising a group’s message that I disagreed with. My tweet was pretty innocuous but led to the group causing me a lot of problems online. Lots of attacking replies and abuse. I was not sure what course of action to take and then a friend reminded me that online you can block anyone you want. I am still getting random people messaging me abuse daily and people following me and unfollowing me from that group and weird things. I have blocked over 20 people so far :( They use it to get more attention to themselves and self-publicise.
Some people have had worse abuse criticising them and if you have any members of the group on your list you get offensive private messages too! I didn’t! I have been wavering on this but I think overall I am glad I said my comment. If I feel that way about something I have to publish it. But I did get way more drama and come back from it than I ever thought. All my friends agreed with me on my tweet that replied. I feel happier now that a lot more people are criticising them and also some porn stars and twitter celebrities are coming out against them too. still it was a nasty experience. Overall I can be a pretty naïve person in the world :-)
