8 Questions To Ask Yourself Before Commenting Online, So Special by kingobama2: 4:12pm On Sep 28, 2015
Ah, the comments section.

It’s where the Internet — in all its terrible glory — weighs in on the hottest issues of the day. And after you read a particularly incendiary article, you too may be tempted to weigh in.

Not so fast, champ.

Before you leave your magnum opus in that comment field, take a deep breath and ask yourself these questions. With a little introspection, you may be able to avoid an ugly feud or a lot of embarrassment

1. Does this comment represent me well?

Your comments show the Internet what kind of person you are. Make sure it’s a good one, not a terrible garbage one.

2. Would I want my #1 role model, most likely NaijaIdols, to read this comment?

Whether your role model of choice is your mother, your college Biology professor or Naijaidols, make sure your Internet comment is something your idol would be proud to read.

3. Am I reading a satirical article?

Does the article seem too crazy to be true? That could be because, uh … it’s not.

4. Is my comment offensive?

If your comment contains slurs or relies on stereotypes, reconsider posting. Some jokes aren’t worth hurting others or perpetuating harmful structures — no matter how hilarious you think they are.

5. Did a loved one — perhaps my son — write this article?

It doesn’t matter how much you disagree with the article’s content — if your own estranged child wrote it, you should address your qualms in person.

6. Has someone already expressed my opinion using similar words?

If another user has already made your comment, you should be excited. It means you don’t have to write anything. Just upvote and nod, pal.


7. Will I act chill if people disagree with me?

You know the old popular saying: If you can’t take the Internet, get out of that Internet.

8. Did I actually read the article?

Did you forget to read the article again? Oh, you!

smiley

the most requisite thing is for one to be patience and;

before you SPEAK listen

before you WRITE think

before you CRITICIZE wait

problem is that most people don't read to understand,rather to put up a rejoinder.I really don't blame them,often you discover that the one putting up the question,puts up a very absurd one and therefore he get a qualified answer.

Na so?. But my comments on Nigerian girls is not offensive. The truth isn't offensive, if anybody finds it offensive, that person needs to change HER attitude/character.

I Can tell you that must Nairalanders are usually temporary crazy whenever they have the opportunity of commenting on the FP, this is gradually making any thread on Nairaland making little sense, you only get better comments when you get to subsequent pages. SOMETHING NEED TO BE DONE ASAP
