One thing that bothers me are people who say "Oh it's the internet, it's not real, get over it."
Oh, of course, relationships and feelings can't happen online. Who'd care if anyone on here died? No one ever cries from watching a movie since it isn't real. No one cried during the Titanic or during Romeo and Juliet especially if they were streamed online. No one cared when they heard the news of the Newtown School Shooting if they heard it online. You wouldn't respond to an invite to a wedding if it's online and you definitely wouldn't care if your friend said they had a bad day if it was stated online. No one’s ever gotten married because they found each other online. I definitely didn't ride my bike for 20 minutes through fierce cold winds to see a guy I had only met online at a Greyhound Station for half an hour while he was on a trip across Canada on around a $250 budget that he coordinated with people online. We also didn't raise $46,823 online thanks to for the that benefits charity. No one has ever been hurt and committed suicide because of things that were said simply online.
Also, credit and money aren't real online. eBay doesn't sell items and people don't do commerce on here. There are no stores and I totally didn't just buy a $1,600 laptop and return it the other week from an online store that I lost $230 to. That was just a dream since we all know the internet isn't real. Also, and aren’t in the top 15 richest Americans alive today because they created a product that runs on something that doesn’t exist. It's also completely fine to give out your credit card and personal information online since it is but a joke. Also, allow your 6 year old on here to join hangouts and make faces and tell everyone that they're alone and the exact address they live at. It's not like there's any predators out there, especially not in public hangouts, don't be silly.
Scientific research also can't be done online since none of this is real. When I did my degree in biology and chemistry we all just laughed at the peer reviewed scientific article databases online that I had access to. These of course couldn't be used in my academic papers since they were of course not real. We also don't do research and collaboration online either since none of this exists.
There are no politics surrounding the internet either, governments and corporations have no interests here. Last year there wasn’t some sort of bill called SOPA, that didn’t happen. also doesn’t care about the internet and never said that it is important that it’s kept free and open. He also didn't do a G+ hangout on Valentine's day last week, that's all in our heads.
I just had to let out a quick rant. Things get on my nerves sometimes, I hope you recognize this is sarcastic.

I'm not claiming that it's perfect, but it's better than clicking that blue button or pressin L :)
The auto reload will make you lose focus, e.g. on comment box, notification drop downs, etc.
No one thinks of themselves as the bully or the cruel one but it's the same as seeking evil.
You want to see that, just look in the mirror.
It's not momentous world-changing events that make the face of it. It's every small step where someone is too tired to be kind, too scared to show anything but apathy, every time we go with what's easier or what won't make any waves we add another drop to someone else's misery and we tear another hole in their hearts.
What is good and right comes in small measures as well. Even I forget that.

Curmudgeonly curmudgeon with a touch of hermit thrown in, add a dash of shut-in, a pinch of awkward and then a sprinkling of motormouth and there you are.
You've arrived at me.
I mostly spend days toiling in a hot kitchen and nights dredging the vastie deeps of the interwebs.
