I deal with the internet mob in the most perfect way. Avoid them like the plague. I don't do social media and I only visit one forum group, here at Stardock.
I keep hearing about the trolls and wankers on facebook, etc, who seem to take pleasure in bringing others down, and I keep saying to those who keep crying about it: why bother going there if all you meet is trolls and wankers who upset you?
Nope, Wincustomize and Stardock forums are enough for me. Besides, I'm 65 in May and don't need to broaden my horizons [I pretty much know everything already ] and I'm quite comfortable in my own skin and surroundings, so I don't give a flying fech what anybody thinks of me anymore.
Having depression taught me one thing.... to grow a thicker skin... otherwise I'd be forever crying in my beer, which I prefer to dilute just a little with a little lemonade or lime juice. Yeah, tears turn it yucky salty flavour and it's seriously not a good taste. Just ask Jafo. He's in Victoria but drinks South Australian beer. Well who wouldn't? Victorian beer is enough to make and discerning drinker cry.
Anyhow, Brad, keep being rude to the trolls and wankers.... we could use the comedic relief.
