So You Read it On the Internet!

So You Read it On the Internet! 
By Nicholas Ashton, CEO/CIO, CommSmart Global Group

Oh my, you read it on the Internet, so it must be true!  

No, anything whatsoever can be written on the Internet, anything and even scum bucket newspapers spread vicious lies.  As you know, there are always two sides to every story.  We have all seen the National Enquirer, the retractions, and the following lawsuits.  

You see, today people who want to get back at someone and attack them perpetually, using the Internet or a low life rag of a newspaper who never even approaches the individuals in the story to hear the other side. 

Anything placed on the Internet is there forever and ever and not always a happy ending to the anonymous writer or forwarder of the miss-information.

Sounds a bit far-fetched? 

No, as there are those that are closed mind and believe what they read, which is convoluted facts and fiction, then they spread the information or take action in a manner that is open for legal aggression.

No, I read it on the Internet!

Responding to these individuals, former co-workers or ex-girlfriends is not the way to go.  It allows them to think they have won and got one over on you

They have got under your skin and annoyed you. Never respond, as it is only going to cause you to do something you will regret.  This is the trend of the unsociable society of today!  

Unfortunately, there are those that never check the real facts and the twisted and derided muses of sick individuals who use this weapon.  They hide behind a keyboard and screen, smirking as they think they strike at your heart with each keystroke.  

Just as hackers, phishers, a man in the middle brutal attackers whose minds are polluted with hatred and wanton aggressive in harming you.

It is pure HATE towards people.  Hatred for what was perceived happened and then twisting the real facts, inventive, sadistic words that they write and giggle as they think what will be your reaction.  The hacker is the same, hatred for what you own, valuables, money, information that they steal and want for themselves without working or lifting a finger for it.

Bullying, stalking and just downright disgusting lies are growing day by day and I can understand the inner feelings of those attacked and the subject of these sick individuals. 

Defending yourself in these situations becomes an extremely difficult situation, as the seed has been sown. 

The more you defend, the more people think that those that shout loudest are guilty, not the fact!  It is inner anger that sadly comes to the surface.  You have maintained silence, not wanting to stir these individuals, which becomes like a hornet's nest or a mound of angry ants.  It is very difficult to maintain a semblance of calmness in this situations.

Beware what you spread about people to others through emails, regarding individuals, it falls under the electronic stalking law.  

Think first of how malicious you are being in re-tweeting, posting or sending emails that you happen to find while wasting your time to dig up what you think is dirt on someone you have a disliking for. 

It has happened to me and I have ignored their sordid intentions and will not stoop to their lowlife level of depravity.  I mean, what is the point?  

Anger and shutting yourself in a room is not the answer.  Nor is responding to those that do bring it to your attention, as no matter what you say, they will not believe you. 

I have met people who talk behind your back, spreading, what they believe is true or twisted, warped, anonymous statements to others.  They cannot stand it that you have a different solid value in making a change and have the testicular fortitude to take it to the upfront and center.

The unsocial side of the Internet is bubbling to the surface and will be stopped, lies, innuendo, hacked information is out there and being extracted to do harm to each of us.  

Do not think that an eight-digit + password is a lock on your world!  It is NOT!

So, in business and your private social life, watch your P’s & Q’s on how you try to retaliate, there are laws against.  

Those that receive such vendettas, ignore and do not add these people to your Christmas card list.

So count your blessings and remember to pay it forward each and every day!

Oh, look what they wrote about… it has to be true, I read it on the Internet!

WE are in the NOW and
KEEP YOU; in the KNOW…
