Neil at Citizen of the Month asks an interesting question that I hadn't really pondered before.
What is the one thing you dislike most about the online world?
I haven't personally had any negative experiences in the online world and I generally enjoy the freedom that the internet allows and the access that I have to a wide variety of perspectives on any given topic. Blogging in particular has made it possible for me to develop connections with people around the country and world that I wouldn't have been able to "meet" without it. That being said, I think that the perceived anonymity of blogging and commenting allows some people to say and do things that they wouldn't say and do if the interaction was face-to-face. Sometimes that's a good thing, giving people the courage to be more open and transparent about their problems or struggles and allowing a venue for open dialog about tough subjects. But sometimes people use that anonymity as permission to be hateful and rude. That's the part of the online world that I dislike the most.
How about you? Is there anything about the online world that you dislike, and if so, what is it?
If you've got a burning question for me but haven't had a chance to ask it, you can go to the original post and leave your question in a comment. I'll keep answering a question or two a day until they're all answered.
