We Should Do Our Due Diligence Before Commenting

I believe we need to do our due diligence when we're going to comment or share something on someone else's network. This was the reason why click-bait did so well originally. To avoid spreading false information, we need to have some due diligence even if that means just briefly going through the video or skimming the post you are reading. Again this isn't a demand I'm making, but rather a thoughtful suggestion. We can all benefit by avoiding misunderstandings and can better formulate our arguments when we firmly know our opponents position.

Let me know your comments below!

Agreed, as long as they didn't post a 40 minute video, and make some outlandish claim. I'll call them out, and demand they argue in their own words. It's sad when their only argument is "did you watch the video?" But in general, I agree with you.

That's fair I guess that's the opposite extreme

Scott Cunningham, well surely, a 5-10 minute video is fine, but you can't require someone to watch a 40 min video to gain permission to discuss a topic. Unless the video itself is the topic. It gets annoying when people can't argue their point without asking "did you watch the video" and sometimes it's over an hour long. ๐Ÿ˜’

Hanover Fiste, yeah for sure, that's just an awkward attempt to force you to consume more of their content. I would never encourage tricking or coaxing people into doing that

Scott Cunningham, well I like your videos. You make a point, and you don't come out with some long winded introduction, and try to create suspense. That doesn't work with these topics. In fact suspense is probably dead lol

Hanover Fiste, yeah I don't know she said she blocked me for sharing the statistics on male suicide, addiction, homelessness etc., but comments on a lot of my stuff and posts about me on her profile.

Hanover Fiste, yeah I hate being lead on for hype. I'm glad you enjoy my simple format. Usually 5-15 mins uncut on a topic to get discussion going.

Scott Cunningham, ๐Ÿ‘ I admit I don't have time to watch all of them, but I've seen enough that I always swipe up. Perfect format. Any longer wouldn't work on an app like this. We all have short attention spans lol

Unknown, there's only so much of your insults and unrelated commenting I will tolerate. I saw on the other card that the app is weird with the way blocking works.

Some people might be in a public setting like on a bus ride home without any headphones were watching a video isn't an option, but I do think that every commenter should be adding something useful to the conversation.

That's fair. That would be my bad for not having closed captions

I really appreciate this Scott, nice work.

I believe that the core of this issue has arisen from our new technological age; everything is just so accessible. Attention spans are rapidly getting shorter and often a headline is all people are able to read before hopping onto something else. Our brains are just so used to short term stimulation.

Yeah 100% agree. I wonder if that's how we are and technology exposed us or if technology adapted us to having less attention because it was profitable
