Random pet peeve -- your thoughts?

I see this trend quite a bit on social media and even message boards. Is it me or do people scan posts rather than read them? I would say the former. More times than I can count, I'll post something on Facebook. It might contain say 6-8 sentences. Someone responds and may agree with most but they will fixate on what they don't agree with and go into full on attack mode. I can live with "I agree with most except for (fill in the blank)." At least it shows that you read the entire post. Thoughts?

    I don't like the "attack mode" either.  I feel people are losing their communication skills.  
    From Michael Berg:

    Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."

    Yeah, there's not a lot of critical thinking on most message boards. It's kind of scary. I wonder if it's mostly a problem on American boards. When I've perused comments on British boards, they seem more civil.

    One of my pet peeves on FB is when people will posts things without researching if they are true or not.  Some of these topics can really stir people up.  I will check them on snopes & without saying anything just posts the snopes report on there.  I have had several delete their posts without making any comment.

    Yes that's annoying. If you don't agree, just keep it pushing. I see comments on YouTube and people are making negative comments. If you didn't like it, move on and don't watch!

    I think with the anonymity people feel they can say whatever, however, if they were face to face they probably wouldn't say anything.

    I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.
