It was a simple comment on a YouTube video podcast. The host was recording from a room in their home and it had that bare walls ambient reverb. I left a simple suggestion in the comments.
“Try some sound deadening material”
That’s it. Just trying to help someone improve the sound quality of their work. I was immediately attacked by a paragraph long screed about how awful a person I was. Wow. So, not to let this one slide, I responded with a comment about their meds wearing off. I was then attacked by another claiming I was a “mean and horrible person”. So I responded to them with an inference about the unfortunate emotional lock down apparently by the age of eight. That was responded with a thank you for confirming I was a “mean and horrible person”.
This, my friends, is where social media has taken us. There is now an army of socially maladjusted, arrested development poster children ready to re make our world into a giant day care play pen so nobody can get their feels hurt. And that makes me a mean and horrible person.
