Chat room: (n) an area on the Internet where users can communicate,
I was supposed to go into chat rooms and converse with those individuals who had accumulated in various clumps based upon their interest level in a particular topic.
I saw no reason to argue with the expert advice, so I found a couple of chat rooms that pertained to my particular writing style, musical interest and overall vision of life’s mission.
I started out slow–just tossed off a couple of ideas.
Suddenly I was attacked. I apparently had said something with an incorrect inflection which came through my writing as offensive.
So I apologized.
My apology was not accepted because it read insincere. I tried to explain my level of sincerity.Then the people in the chat room thought I was being pompous and self-righteous. Pleading with them that I was not pompous or self-righteous, but to the contrary, had set my direction in life to be at odds with such ridiculous profiles, they then wanted to know what I meant by “ridiculous.”
One person mentioned that without some sort of organization, how could anything be achieved?
Whatever way I turned, I ran into somebody who was either offended or was bound and determined to try to offend me.
Attempting to be up to date with the times, I continued for a few days in various chat rooms, pursuing some means of communal relationship.
It was utterly disastrous.
So I was gradually able to back my way out of the conversation and eventually they continued railing each other, unaware that I was gone.
I guess the premise would have to be that if you have enough time on your hands to be in a chat room, you probably have too much time on your hands.
