The evolution of the comment has made internet 2.0 what it is today. Founders of the first blogs are accredited to bringing community and a sense of togetherness to the internet in the late 80s and early 90s. Reddit boards, and yahoo answers are sites that hold the power of the comment. Up until this day, I’ve read some deep, deep thoughts on Yahoo Answers about love, sex and the most pressing health concerns. Now in 2016, commenting has become the essence of bullying and shaming. Trolls and other horrible people of the internet take it upon themselves to abuse the comment box to spread racist and derogatory statements with no repercussions. Due to the fairly recent evolution of social media, people feel empowered to speak their mind with no filter. Comments are treated like the rodeo of the internet. The old saying “If you don’t have anything nice to say…don’t say it at all” should be a rule for commenting on any article. No cursing, no racist remarks, no fighting. If you disagree with something, back it up with facts and don’t write an essay it’s a comment, not a thesis.
