Lesson 2

Here is an example of an ass on the internet: Not Minding your Own Business.



(user A) Posts: Marvel comics are better than DC comics.

(user B ) Posts: No way, Dc comics are better the Marvel comics.

(user C ) Posts: You guys are idiots, Vertigo Comics are better than both combined.



Result: User A and User B are in a clean argument, people do this sort of thing all the time, but then user C drops in and sees the conflict. Instead of minding his own businesses and staying out of the argument he becomes a third wheel and decides to change the subject from Marvel Vs. DC. Not only has user C changed the subject but he has also taken the dignity from the clean argument with his immature name calling, making him an internet ass. Dont be a user C there is no need to to meddle in the affairs of others and resort to name calling.


Thank you for reading internet advice, making the internet a better place.






Lesson 1

Here is an example of an ass on the internet:The Misused Quote.


(user A) Posts : I hate the way Government functions and forces you to do what they tell you to do. "Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds."
Albert Einstein

(user B ) Posts: That quote has a totally different meaning, Albert Einstein is trying to express how those with great minds are often judged or opposed by those who cant understand or logic with them.

(user A) Posts: What are you 5? you clearly dont know what you are talking about, and obviously dont know anything about Einstein.


Result: We can see here that user A had misused a quote, and thats fine everyone makes mistakes its only human, but when user B, tried to show user A that he had failed to understand the meaning of the quote user A lashed out on user B in a very demeaning manor resulting in user A being an internet ass, Dont be a user A, if a user B shows you a mistake there is no need to lash out.

Quotes are pulled out of context and used in other aspects of life. That's a fact.

Thank you for reading my obvious observation of your obvious observation.

Ps. Obvious observations are the first signs of an ass. You're an ass. I'm an ass. We're both asses. The only difference is, that I wouldn't try to pretend that I wasn't an ass, because it's better to be an honest ass than a pretentious douche. You see, the pretentious douche is an ass, too, but he's a lying ass. The conundrum, however, is that society prefers the latter. Lying is the norm, whereas being honest just makes us weird.

I'm quoting you, so I guess i'm an ass (lol). Anyways, i'm scared that I actually understood every word you said, then proceeded to agree with it.

I like to think that the more logical fallacies you use whenever you're interacting with others the more of an ass/troll you are. They pretty much cover all the bases and can be applied to everything. https://yourlogicalfallacyis.com/

well to user A, user B is an ass.

To user C (of which is a third party, not listed) thinks that both of them are asses.

So everyone on the Internet is an ass. What is the big deal?

Nuh-uh! Not everyone. User C isn't an ass because user C was smart enough to not participate. Oh, wait... Damn... I'm an ass, too. You're right after all.

You are taking an opinion and showing it as fact. Granted, though such opinion may be the opinion of most, it is still an opinion. User A was most likely simply using a defensive mechanism, common behavior when one feels offended on-the-spot. User B has poor grammar. He used a comma instead of a semi-colon. Also, writing this makes me such an @ss.

Yay, when do we get a lesson 2?

Please tell me, please tell me, please tell me, please tell me, please tell me, please tell me, please tell me, please tell me, please tell me...etc

Please tell me, please tell me, please tell me, please tell me, please tell me, please tell me, please tell me, please tell me, please tell me...etc

I'm having this incredible urge to continue posting this over and over again -.- it's so hard to ignore T_T

You'd have to be a 5 year old moron to not know what an ass is like.

...

But in all seriousness while I try and avoid being an ass, we're all one at some point. It's just that some people are destined to eternally be an asshole, spewing shit wherever they go.

kyocool, SeraphAlford, and Darkphoenix3450 will eat you gals for breakfast.

Especially, Darkphoenix3450. He doesn't want to be corrected and grammar or no grammar he won't stop to make your statements less than a nil. According to him, he mastered all the martials arts to offer and sciences out there. He's like the Chuck Norris of Extended Discussion forum thread.
