Social media is an interesting phenomenon.
People are so desperate for validation and feedback from complete strangers they are willing to let others act in a vile or openly hostile manner towards them just to get a like or a comment.
If I comment on a LinkedIn status update (a professional networking website where stirring the pot is a taboo and swearing is looked down upon) and it is left to stand, it tells me one of two things: The person isn’t paying attention or they don’t care (same thing really).
Or my comment is more valuable than their integrity.
Would they rather let something stand that they disagree with and don’t want to see, but be validated by it, than to take action and delete the comment?
P.S. I actively delete (some) comments from my social media posts because I’d rather have no comments than put up with someone’s inane blithering.
