Nasty-grams FAIL

James 1:19
My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry

I just have to ask it.  What is with the nasties?  Why do people feel the need to be outright nasty to others?  I see it all over the place but especially on group pages on Facebook.

I get being in a foul mood.  Boy howdy, do I.  I will also admit that at one point in my life, I sent my own nasti-grams.  Not pretty.

I have seen attacks because someone posts, “First poster!” on a new thread started on a page.  Or someone heads over to The Bible page or Praying People page, in order to say something rude, crude, and mean.

Are people so bored and lonely that this is how they fill their time?  I think so.  I also think it stems from jealousy because they don’t have something they feel others have.

Then the nastiness is perpetuated with responders who are irritated by it and also have nothing nice to say.  Responding to these folks just fuels their fire.  It’s exactly what they are looking for.  So, please for the love of all that is good, ignore them!  Or respond with kindness.

There is also this handy dandy thing called, FLAG.  Click it, and hopefully a lovely mod will take care of it.

If someone is constantly harassing a page and the mods have not blocked them, you can do it for yourself.  Click on the person’s name.  When you get to their profile page, scroll down on the left hand side, and select Report/Block this person.  You can report them if they are truly being abusive etc.  Selecting block, makes it so you never see this person again, no matter what they post.  It also means, they can never see anything you post on Facebook either.  Win Win!

And if you are one of these nasti-gram deliverers, please find something productive to do.  Start a farm or get out of the house and go for a walk.

Better yet, do something KIND for someone and see how it makes you feel.  If you are in a funk, I guarantee that you will come out of it!  You will feel better.  You will make a positive impact on someone’s life.  Everybody wins.  Need ideas?  Check out this cool website:  Acts Of Kindness

Mods, please get rid of the trouble makers ASAP.  Don’t allow them to bring the page down.  You have the POWA!  Utilize it.
