Taking your BBS persona to other websites

We have a kind of neighborhood watch bulletin board for news of crimes, lost and found, events, suggestions etc... Also, the local newspaper has one where you can leave comments at the end of an article. Much like this BBS most discussions end up getting political and abusive. Trouble is the people posting are not as good as it as members of this good ship.

I tried to keep off of there, but sometimes it’s very hard to resist pinging back at some of the nitwits posting on there. So, like a true keyboard warrior, I’ve started posting responses to some of them using my best BBS sarcastic, irreverent persona I can muster. Funny thing is they become very indigent and become very defensive – on the whole they don’t know how to handle it. Take them out of the “Praying for you” Facebook format and they are stumped.

It’s amazing how many people can politicize a car break-in or a car accident. Also, you get the little suck ups who endorse the right-wing wackos, who go off at tangents with their not so very subtle agendas. Racial, Trump supporting, gun toting undertones are rampant.

The BBS has taught me well, and about 20 years of posting on here has been good practice for responding to some of these nut jobs! Do some research, and hit them with facts is always a good response. Oh, and acting as the grammar police usually upsets them pretty good!

Anyone have similar experiences with posting on other websites not football related? And if so, do you use the same cadence/tone as you use here?

You are a racist and you deflect.

I’m on a neighbourhood FB page and more than once have had to stop myself from my initial reaction of posting in BBS mode. Pausing for a second you realise that a certain type of irreverence and looseness would probably offend.

People do not seem not have a problem with that statement on here in a conversation when clearly there is no racism involved just points of views...If you took that anywhere else they would think you were mad.

Just to add iv'e just read this in the politics forum,nothing to do with hedge

This the only social media site I post upon. ( unless comments on YouTube count ) I can barely tolerate the way human beings are to each other, from behind the protection and anonymity of keyboards, even when they are all Palace fans.

I've learned that, when dealing with the snide superciliousness of someone stating that 'they are praying for me,' to respond that 'I hope God forgives you for your arrogance to be so certain he is on your side.' Works well.

I like that, although I'm not sure I have the heart (or balls) to use it.

Agree. And my brief exposure to other sites has shown me that it also on the whole goes over their heads. But that might be an American thing.

Well yes, it's not easy being me.

I do come across as a bit "Victor Meldrew", but in the real world I don't think I'm really that bad.

OK, OK... so are policemen not allowed to transgress?

I'm no better than the people I pick-up on, I know that.

But it's still fun pointing out other peoples mistakes!

Come the glorious day, you will all be spelling the American way - you know you will.

Half of the country already talk like Americans, so it's only a matter of time.
