“I was incredibly impressed with HOTorNOT, because it was the first time that someone had designed a website where anyone could upload content that everyone else could view. That was a new concept because up until that point, it was always the people who owned the website who would provide the content.” –Jawed Karim (Cloud (2006))

Ah, sorry - I caught the tail end of your tweet and didn’t see the whole chain. Sorry, sorry! (Tucker (2015))
we can learn much about ourselves
and how other seek to exploit us
I visited: Amazon reviewers, fan fiction authors, online learners, scammers, freethinkers, and mean kids
I decided to lower the curtain a bit and let you see more of my personality…. I approached [Twitter] as a place to be less formal and more off-the-cuff, honest and “human.”
I will be tuning out of the social networking sites because at the end of the day it’s now doing more harm than good in the bigger picture and the experiment seems to have yielded a result. Idiots rule. (Reznor (2009))
Geocities, Myspace, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram, Snapchat, …
Slashdot, Digg, Reddit, Hacker News, …
At its start, Twitter felt edgy and intimate.
We spend 30-40% of our interactions speaking about subjective experiences
41% of tweets are of the “me now” variety (NaamanBoaseLai (2010))
gossip is what makes human society as we know it possible. (Dunbar (2004))
Not our environment, our use of color vision to find fruit, the distance traveled while foraging, or the complexity of the omnivore’s diet.
But group size, the one measure of social complexity available to me at the time, did correlate with neocortex size (Dunbar (1996))
The answer turns out to be groups of about 150. (Dunbar (1996))
Many of us (most of the time) want to express an authentic sense of self without fear of attack, manipulation, or unusual exposure …
… while remaining open to things that will surprise and delight us.
Looks like the Metal Sludge contingency has discover Twitter! Finally! … Metal Sludge is the home of the absolutely worst people I’ve ever come across.
It depresses me to think my art and life’s work can attract this kind of scum, … you trolling, cowardly pigs – you’ve succeeded. (Reznor 2009)

I finally decided today that even though sometimes I get some value from having comments here on Scripting News, in balance they’re not worth the trouble. So I’m turning them off.
There may be times in the future when I want to solicit input from readers. I’ll find another way to do that. (Winer (2012))
It began just over four weeks ago, when something shifted. It started with death threat blog comments left here (which some of you may have seen before I deleted them) including: “Comment: fuck off you boring slut… i hope someone slits your throat and cums down your gob” (Sierra (2007)).
Kathy Sierra is a hopeless dipshit. (Locke (2007))
Kathy hollers like a stuck pig as she wonders why the trolls escalated to magnitudes which she could no longer control. The answer is obvious: she fought the LOL. The LOL won – Andrew Auernheimer (weev (2007))
Of all personality measures, sadism showed the most robust associations with trolling and, importantly, the relationship was specific to trolling behavior. (BuckelsTrapnellPaulhus (2014))

an attack by a spectrum of people exhibiting varied behavior, but who share a target, culture, and venues. (Reagle (2015))
“Samsung fined $340,000 for faking online comments” (Souppouris (2013))”
“Samsung buying off StackOverflow users for publicity” (Marvin (2013))
“Samsung admits to posting fake user reviews on the web” (Knight (2013))
will chase away their users
as profit seeking leads to exploitation and “extortion”
we’re in a world where the mainstream social networks want any and all people to boost user numbers for the big selloff and are not concerned with the quality of experience. (Reznor (2009))
“Yelp and the business of extortion 2.0” (Richards (2009))
“Are Yelp extortionists giving restaurants the shakedown?” (Muneno (2012))
… but make shills of us all
Rachel Maddow: “Is it possible that this started out being a private photo of yours?”
It could be. Or could have been a photo that was taken out of context or was changed and manipulated in some way.
People get hacked all the time and it happened to me. (Reporter (2011))

by reading the comments at the bottom of the Web
I’ve come to the conclusion
comment is as “commenterrible” as we let it be
