Social activity on Xbox Live
We all know it and participate in the social experience of Xbox Live. You and I have seen the extremes people go to, in order to win a trash talking conversation. It's quite sad how we let it happen also. These events only happen because people are protected by a TV and a internet connection. From these subhuman conversations we can see exactly why worldwide standards have lowered. Grown men harassing young kids, blatant racism for no reason, and the crudest language. Then there is the aspect when there is a female gamer. The words that are thrown their way would more thank likely get someone put into a hospital. The lack of respect over the internet shows a sad side of our culture where we praise the internet for everything it has done to advance us. But there is the rare friendly side, where you actually enjoy your experience with these strangers. I have made some good friends through Xbox and I know a lot of people who have made some also. It just astonishes me that I can actually pick through all the immature ignoramuses and find someone who is actually worthwhile to hang out with.
