One of the biggest changes in the ethics of interaction that I
have seen over the course of my life is the creation of the
Internet, Email and eventually forums.
We all know that the written word doesn’t convey humor or
sarcasm well at times and your actual meanings can be
Worse than that is the perception that the internet isn’t “real”
and that you can be / do / say whatever you like however you
want and there are no repercussions.
Have you ever said something to someone you wouldn’t say
to them in person….. bet you have.
Has someone ever said something to you that they wouldn’t
say to you in person ….. yep, that too.
It’s sad….. it’s worse than beer goggles….. name calling,
belittling, ignorant or just plain rude behavior…… just
because you are isolated by the internet.
Now here at CLSB we have another problem…. it’s a small world.
We all live in Chicago and are part of the motorcycle community
*and* we all socialize with each other.
I would remind you all of this when you interact with other members
here on CLSB….. We might just get to meet face to face someday and
we wouldn’t want there to be any really bad feelings….. right ?
So show some restraint, a bunch of respect and enjoy the ride.
Life’s too short for all that other B.S.
