Social media hate!

About 2 months ago I joined a website commonly used by my age group called, this site allows people to anonymously or un-anonymously ask questions to other people on their friends group, one of the reasons i joined frihost was for a new experience. However recently i've been getting a lot of hate on It's been horrible, like on a daily basis being told to die, it doesn't really affect me majorly, but it's made me look at society in a different way. It's more upset me that there are people out there that are shallow enough to atack someone anonymously, especialy when i've done nothing wrong, i've just tried to live life as myself, no more no less. Also that none of them would have the balls to say it to my face.

I see some comments on Youtube and still get shocked at how unkind many people are to each other. I guess the cowards of the world have just found a new avenue for their hate through anonymous posts.

You may be pleased to know that Frihost will most certainly be a new experience if you have grown up with the instant social media tools these days.
It is actually an old-world online media really, with discussion forums being one of the earlier types of digital community.
You will find no hate here because the staff and other members always hit it with a passion.
Yes, there are heated debates, yes, you can expect wild claims to be shot down in the Philosophy or Science forums etc, but hate, no, it's not accepted here.

I'm on facebook and other sites for the practical social uses they obviously offer with communication, but I very much prefer the rational debates found here.
It's not all serious though because 'General Chat' for example has some of the shallowest and amusing topics to get involved in if you're just in a lighthearted mood Smile

@UKbeys. That sucks badly. Am curious, what were the topics that generated the hate and were you the only target? Also was it one individual who went for you, or a "pack"?

Social networks allowing anonymous user is probably not a good idea at all. In networks like Facebook if you don't like someone's postings you can kick him out of your network and you are done with this person.

@deanhills it was mainly just being told to kill myself and general hate like things. But i believe it to be a 'pack' as you say, because i was getting many different ones at a time Sad

@amagard i totally agree with you. It would be a good website were it not for the stupid anonymity service it provides!

@watersoul As am i disgusted with the things i have seen on youtube!

And i am very pleased to see that frihost is such a welcoming place, i'm looking forward to getting to know may way around and everything as well. The discussions are very good actually, i'm looking forward to getting into a few myself actually Smile and i'm so happy with the fact they are against the hate, because as a victim of mild cyber-bullying, i have experienced firsthand the power it has. Were it not for my parents <3 i would have had a very different end to it and it has made me see just what an impact it would have to someone who did not have the help and support of my amazing parents!

As am i on Facebook and again another thing we agree on, just how good the debates here are Smile

I hate humans. I can not understand why we can not be nice to one another - especially if the other person hasn't done anything to harm anyone else. Reading a lot of comments on the internet upsets me and makes me ashamed to be human. But yes, on the whole, Frihost seems to have a good lot here.
