Social media, historically, has been a breeding ground for spreading hate and nastiness because it comes with no real consequences. You can say something unkind to another person and walk away from the keyboard into your own existence without ever having to answer for your inappropriate behavior. In America we preach free speech and so many hide behind this as if it's a license to be ugly.
Mean girls (and boys), fueled by jealousy, boredom or a complete lack of social grace and etiquette, take every opportunity to tear others down. It's quite sad really. I cannot imagine any person truly feeling GOOD about themselves as they are belittling or insulting and hurting another human being. There is enough hate in the world, that here, in the metal detecting community, where we all have something in common, you would think everyone could get along. Instead there are accusations of staged finds, back biting and tormenting behavior that leaves me shaking my head on an almost daily basis.
This post is not some altruistic attempt at changing the world. I have enough of my own cynicism where that is concerned, but I truly hope that maybe a few will pause and consider their actions. I for one continue to spend my time telling my fellow detectorists how amazing they are—letting each and every detecting darling know that she is beautiful, unique and special. Spreading kindness instead of hate is so much more fulfilling don't you think?
Meanwhile, I will just sit back and watch that bitch karma sort it all out.
