This Is How You Should Act

If you’ve ever listened to one of our shows, you know that I deeply despise Facebook. But you also know that I see it as a necessary evil. Unfortunately, it’s one of the best ways to keep in touch with friends and family, and we also use it quite a bit here at Stolendroids to help drive traffic to the site.

One of the many, many reasons that I hate Facebook, and most social media in general, is that people get a sense of anonymity when hiding behind a keyboard. This leads them to say whatever incorrect, rude, or horrible comment that comes to mind. And despite efforts from Facebook, Twitter, and the like, I don’t think this trend is going away anytime soon. 

It used to be that politics and religion were subjects not generally discussed; however, that’s all that I ever see on social media anymore. Sure, there are some people who will post images from comic books or videos of cats being stupid, but those types of posts are few and far between. Maybe I need to start filtering out my friends? Of course the moment that I do, they will post something actually important to me that doesn’t talk about President Trump being an actual super-villain hell-bent on destroying the world or how Religion X is awful because of their beliefs that must not be tolerated even though we need to all be tolerate of each other’s beliefs. It’s pure madness!

Fortunately, I’m not alone in these feelings. The guys over at Glove and Boots, which happens to be one of our favorite YouTube channels, just put out a video reminding us that “if you talk like this at someone’s birthday party, everyone is gonna think that you’re an a**hole.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.

Jeremiah Zohner

Founder & Executive Producer After developing a love of Star Wars and comic books as a child, Zohner was destined to be a geek. With interests touching on computers, video games, technology, books, TV and movies, and toys and collectibles, he is the epitome of a well-rounded geek. Zohner is one of the founding members of Stolendroids. After stepping away for a time to work on other endeavors, the time was right for him to make his triumphant return to the one project that he truly loves. When he’s not writing articles or podcasting, Zohner can be found spending time with his family, managing projects for a software company, or hanging out in the gym knowing that it won’t do a bit of good.
