There was a time when I had great conversations with people online. We would argued about finer points of things. I was open to opinions. But that was until I got trolled.
These days I Periscope a lot. And there everything is in real-time, including interaction with your audience as well as trolling. But this also had meant blocking trolls had become real-time as well, which is a good thing. By interacting with viewers who felt trolls a nuisance had meant blocking was no longer a problem I faced alone. To know other people feel the same way as you about trolls had meant that I can now block without feeling I was shutting out perhaps a valid opinion.
At times people disguise their trolling as views, and one must learn to deal with it as much as one does in real life.
So let’s get back to dialogues. Let me build again a good community of readers as I once had had. Let me be free to speak my mind without fear.
