Anonymous Internet Commenters



What is it that makes people online such commenting assholes? I suppose it's the anonymity, but still, it's damn annoying.


I learned about the online "dozens" as email was being born. Between 1994 and 2000, I started and ended my share of flamewars, so when someone comes at me with a comment dis, I almost always respond and escalate the war (or is that "surge"?).


Check out this comment from nicenonya2 on my YouTube video about black conservatives:


what is your fat ass gonna do with 40 acres and a mule?


And my response:


nicenonya2, based on your favorites you began @ YouTube w/ hope, watching Baz Luhrmann, Daily Show and Meet the Press clips. But you got more... pathetic.



Did "Hot Chick with Sexy Tits and Ass Strip in Bedroom Webcam" make you a) proud of your mom, or b) cry yourself to sleep?



Tell me what YOU would do with 40 acres and a mule. Would you film yourself making sweet mule-on-man love while dreaming of sex with a real, live, unrelated woman?



Thanks for the comment!


I hate that I spend my time doing this, but I just had to do it. I had to.
