Think about it for a minute.
Everything, both good and bad about high school moves forward with you in life growing
to either become more
You go to high school.
You have your populars
, your weirds
, your geeks
, your jocks
, your sluts
all divided into little entities
. You have rumors
and good times
is pretty silly
, but hey -- it's high school after all.
Flash forward to college.
You still have sluts, jocks, geeks, and weirds, only now everyone is a little popular
within their own group. You've managed to somehow take the bad of high school and make it a little less bad, while at the same time, making the good a little better (beer
Flash forward to the office.
The office sees all of the bad of high school magnified
. Why? Because people have even less of a life now than they ever had. Instead of cligues
, you now have your warring factions
in the workplace. You still have your geeks, weirds, jocks, and sluts. Except now, instead of populars, you have managers
who get promoted because of good hair
, the high school resurfaces in a new and improved element in the form of online communities
.I love the concept of this site
, but we still have a lot of the bad things most of us would like to leave back in high school.
The whole datagirl ordeal makes me sick.
I can't even understand how, with so many smart people hanging here something like this
could happen. Let everyone do their thing.
If you have a problem with a user, keep it to yourself. If you don't like a node
, vote it down
. If you do like a node, cool
it or vote it up
. I don't have many friends
here- I may say something in the Chatterbox
from time to time, but for the most part, I just keep quiet, node, read other's nodes, and vote. Here, instead of jocks, we have comedians
. We're all weirds and we're all geeks. These are all good. The populars are now called M-Noders
(which is another good thing
). But, in the place of sluts, we now have XP Whores
. Let's work on improving the good and getting rid some of the bad. It's our community and up to us to shape.
