If you could un-invent something, what would it be? Discuss why, potential repercussions, or a possible alternative.

If I could un-invent anything in the whole entirety of the universe…I would undo the “Comments” section for articles/news stories I read on sites like Yahoo/HuffPo/etc.  Now, I’m not saying get rid of the ones on prestigious sites with informed and intelligent participants…

*cough* *cough*

But you know the ones I’m talking about right?  Take any possible divisive topic out there… Gun control/Democrat vs. Republican/Tim Tebow… the comments sections get completely TROLLBOMBED by knuckleheads who hide behind the anonymity of the internet and say nonsensical, hateful, purposeless word vomit that just don’t add to the discussions in the article.  It makes me wonder why there are so many out there that enjoy just making a mess in the world for their own enjoyment.

So yeah, take out the comments section.  Yahoo doesn’t actually care what you think.  They just want you there to bring more traffic to the page and see their ads.

On an unrelated note, feel free to COMMENT!  I welcome your word vomit! 🙂

    People usually try their hand at beeing stupid know-nothings on these comment sections you want to undo because they think no one can determine who they truly are. Would they actually say these things live to another person? Who knows?

      Yes, who knows indeed. I know we can’t legislate stupid speech, but maybe we should be having these discussions with real live people… not anonymous faceless trolls on the Internet!

    I agree on all counts! I’ve learned to avoid reading comments on yahoo. It only makes me angry and sad. Very sad.
