Okay, I need to get this off my chest.
Everyone knows what I'm talking about. These journals that get passed around, or things reposted on Facebook, or Retweeted, and usually have a good point or a moral.
They drive me insane.
Now please, don't get me wrong. I often agree with the message, and other people reposting them doesn't offend me or anger me. What does is the claim in each and every one that words, in some way, that you are a bad person if you don't repost it. "Let's see who's paying attention." "Repost if you have a heart." "Let's see who the fake Deviants are."
Doesn't ANYONE find it in the least offensive, that someone would imply that you're a bad person for not spamming someone else's thoughts in your journal? If I have something to say about a subject, I'll say it in my own words. I don't need to "repost this picture" to prove that I'm a Christian, or "Repost this journal" to actively be against bullying. Why should I have to PROVE my thoughts and beliefs to anyone? So for everyone reposting these chain letters, I challenge you to REMOVE those parts that cheapen the message! Nobody has the right to call anyone a bad person for simply not mindlessly copying and pasting!
I welcome people's thoughts on this. Again; I don't have a problem with the messages or the people who repost them, but for the love of all that's holy, why should anyone be expected to?
