This week Dr. Tanya has asked our opinion about this quote;
See no evil, hear no evil , speak no evil.
Does evil exists in blogosphere?
Of course, we all have encountered spammers, trolls, and overly opinionated people who insist that only their point of view is the right one.
Neither in real life nor in blogging, I believe, in ignoring the presence of evil. As a blogger, I address the social issues I see around me. I feel it’s my prerogative to write what I deem right. If anything is bothering me, I write about it and highlight the issue.
There will be people who don’t agree with me. They may at times make their opinions known to me in comments. I usually defend my point of view politely but firmly.
Recently some people disagreed with me on the principle of vaccinations for all. They argued that these vaccines are ‘harmful’ for humans. I know that these vaccines are helping us beat Covid and hence the difference of opinions.
The best way to put your opinion across in your posts is to state it in non-offensive terms, politely and without targeting anyone. It’s okay to disagree with a school of thought, customs or attitude but don’t be specific in addressing any one group of people. The point here is to be inclusive and not exclude others. There are ways to state one’s opinion without being offensive.
Another important thing to remember is not to criticize anyone’s religious beliefs or their political opinions. This can hurt people which is not what most bloggers want to do.
I’ve been guilty of criticizing Trump for his actions when he was the POTUS. But there wasn’t any backlash from it. Perhaps it wasn’t the right thing to do?
Thank you Dr.Tanya for keeping this conversation going.
