Internet Trolls or Keyboard Commandos are always on the move. It's almost the norm to run into some type of inflammatory, or off-topic messages in an online community. In This podcast I talk about how I deal with trolls. I hope it helps. Enjoy.
You can't change people. If a person has a mindset of, "I'm gonna go out there and I'm gonna make myself feel better by putting other people down." You can't rationalize with those people. So, how do you deal with them? You don't. It's sad that people go through life that way.
I'm just messing with you guys. Guys, thank you so much for joining the Bravo Audio Show. You know who I am. It means the world to me that you guys are here. Guys are rocking it. I've always said this and I sound like a broken record, I know I do, but, man, you guys are out there sharing this podcast, you guys are out there downloading it. You guys are listening to it, you guys are commenting on it, you guys are five staring it. Thank you so much, guys. It truly means the world to me. You guys don't understand. Never thought we'd had a podcast, never thought that it would do so well as it is doing right now.
This is like our 45th or 46th episode and we keep going because you guys are listening, you guys are downloading. So, thank you so much. I wanna talk about the keyboard commandos, the trolls and I don't wanna spend too much time because it's not really worth that much time. You know, there's a lot of people that ask me, "How do you deal with these trolls?" And it's plain and simple. I just don't. I don't deal with them. I see their comments and it is what it is and I just move on. These people, their shortcomings in life, that's gonna be their own demise.
For somebody to wake up in the morning or just, you know, during lunch or whatever it is, during work hours or just at home because I feel like some these guys don't even have a jobs because of all the stuff that they go out there and do. I mean to me, it's just...that's their own demise. And so I let them be. Obviously, if they get crazy and they start cursing and stuff like that or being super disrespectful, then I'll hide their comments or I'll just block them or something if it gets very crazy.
We hardly block people on Facebook or on Instagram. We let them speak. If they're disrespecting especially other people, other people's comments then they're out. But I just don't deal with them. I truly don't. I just let them be. Again, what I was saying, for somebody to go out there and...I mean these guys, they'll go out there and they'll write a paragraph, probably more school work than they've ever done just to go out there and try to make somebody feel bad. That's really all it is that they're doing.
And look, let me say this and there's no way around this. We project how we're feeling. That's why you can see somebody and you can kind of sense that, "Hey, man, something's wrong with that person. They're not having a good day. Maybe something happened." So, we're always projecting how we feel inside. You cannot hide that. It's very hard to hide that. I don't say that you can't because a lot of people walk around with, you know, just like a facade or something. But it's very hard to fake that especially, let me say this, especially on social media.
For some reason this device, this phone or YouTube or whatever it is that you're on a daily basis, whatever it is that you use for social media. It exposes you. It exposes you and you can't fake it. Not for long. We project how we're feeling. And so people that are being negative, people that are being angry, it's projected. You cannot sit there and write something on a vlog or on a blog or make a video, a vlog video and not project the way you're feeling. You can't. You can't fake, "I love my monies." You can't fake that, man.
People are gonna see that and they're gonna see through that fake facade. There's something about this technology that it just exposes us. That's really what it does and it kind of...it almost like...it can kind of see through you. It's crazy, but I love it for that. I am who I am. The way I am here is the way I am 24 hours a day. That's just who I am. And so I can't come up here and try to fake something because it's just not gonna work. So, anyways, I digress.
Going back to these people, going back to the trolls. They project how they're feeling. That's all it is. It's a mirror upon themselves. See, but they don't know that. They think that they're sitting there and I'm putting in my two cents and, you know, I'm gonna talk bad about this guy and that guy and this guy is an idiot. But all they're doing is just projecting who they really are. And if you know that and understand that, well then, why even start a conversation with someone like that? I don't listen to people that are upset and angry because they're not in their right senses. Calm down, let's talk about this in a rational manner and maybe we can get somewhere.
But look, let me say this also as well, you can't change people. If a person has a mindset of, "I'm gonna go out there and I'm gonna make myself feel better by putting other people down." You can't rationalize with those people. There's no way. So, how do you deal with them? You don't. You let them be who they are and as a matter of fact, I kind of feel sad for them to a certain extent. A lot of it, they do it on their own, right? But I kind of feel sad because it's sad that people go through life that way. It's sad that people need to feed off of somebody else's achievements by putting them down so that they can feel better. It's sad. But it is what it is.
They'll always be around. You'll never get rid of them. To me it's like, "Dude, don't you have more important things to do than to do that?" It baffles me that people think that way, that they can go through life by, "I'm gonna go out there and put people down," or, "I'm gonna go and try to find..." These guys probably go out there and do keyword searches and stuff. As a matter of fact, I know they do. To go out there and do keyword searches and try to find somebody that they can put down so that they can feel better about themself in one way or another for the rest of the day, it's just ridiculous. It's sad, and it's...if it wasn't so sad, it'd be fun.
It is funny. I'm not gonna lie. I can't. What I was saying earlier, it's funny. And you know, some of these people do need help, I think. But the best thing to do is just ignore them. You see them on TV. They're everywhere. Whether they're protesting somewhere, some group on TV or something, you have to just sit there and just watch them crash. Let them crash and there's really no help. That's the way I deal with them which basically I just don't deal with them.
The only people that think the same way they do is their own kind. And so they feed off of each other. That's why when you see comments, it's usually a group of trolls. And it's not that they...they're all like, "All right, man, let's go and attack this guy and that guy." They don't even know each other, but if one surfaces, the others will go and attach themselves to that person and it just makes them feel like a gang. They just wanna feel like they belong somewhere. So, they all kind of come together and that's why kids join gangs because they're just looking for a reason to belong. They're looking for purpose.
You know, they wanna matter at something even if it's just a gang, right? A street gang or something or just a pack of guys that are out to do no good. And so guys, that's all they are and a lot of these guys they don't even have followers. This is where they're truly exposed is, you know, I see them and I have studied them a little just to kind of comprehend a little. Most of these guys...I'm talking about like 95% of these guys don't even have a Facebook page or an Instagram page. They maybe have two followers or zero followers and they're following like 500 or a 1,000 people. And that right away is the first sign that you know that you're dealing with trolls.
A lot of these people, they say that that's not the way it's done. It's done this way. And then you go to their page and they don't even show any signs of them having any knowledge on what they just commented on. And so it's real easy to spot them. They just go out there and they just go look for a prey, I guess it's what it is. So, anyways guys just wanted to share that with you guys. I know a lot of people ask me that and you know, there's comments on there. If you go to our Facebook, even on Instagram. Facebook more than anything, you'll see trolls out there.
Again, if they're only hurting themselves or whatever, it doesn't really matter. If they start getting crazy and nasty, well then I'll probably just hide their comments. If they get really crazy then we'll block them, which doesn't really happen a whole lot. But again, I just let them be. Have fun, go out there. Go check out some of our posts and you'll see them out there and you know, have a good laugh.
