IDK where to put an intro comment, but anyway, it's me, Tashy. :D
I remember making my LJ in 2006 and then leaving it stagnant, lol. XD Then I got into certain fandoms and made another account because my old journal was too messy to manage.

... lol, I'm rambling again. XDD

Anyway, on topic:
I've had my fair share of the guilt with um, unnecessary hate. My current fandom especially provokes such, haha. XD I don't think I'll be doing it again, but the guilty pleasure of bashing someone anonymously on a hate meme had me grinning from ear to ear--okay, wait, that sounded freaky. XD

I think I'm more vocal when talking to people on the internet rather than in RL (well, with the exception of friends of course). I get to throw friendly insults at random people without being too conscious.

I never cuss though, even on the internet. *shrug*

A big part of my initial "life" in the internet is documented in LJ so this place has a sentimental value for me... though because of many things that involved my sanity I went awol for about 3 years and focused my attention in deviantart.

Like you said, it also gave me the outlet to express my innermost feelings. I popped in from forums in every corner. It seems natural to retaliate to things that makes you uncomfortable. So who could stop you from saying yours? :D

Back in the day, there were only few people who roam around the cyberspace and those were the good ol' days. Healthy debates and insightful conversations are highly appreciated and are well delivered by people. Today, there is a rise of users who aren't responsible enough to hold their own words. Internet became an outlet of hate. It multiplied so fast it's starting to affect the young ones who are just new to the interwebs.

The internet holds no boundaries especially the knowledge that we are all anonymous if we want to. It's a great thing but it is also scary. It gives us freedom and that means to do good and the not so good.

hahah, anyway, sorry if it sounds so preachy.
