cool question and interesting answers...
i think it's funny that we can vote up or vote down comments in our world, just like retweeting or liking things. it's also comical to look things and see our opinions about the follow me, i follow you mentality or there is criteria as to why we choose people.
i believe the world is just one giant mirror and i think about things in regards to who i may follow or friend. on FB for example, there are some giant (insert expletive) that pop up in the friend feed that i know from my past and i recognize that behavior because i can also be like that. do i want to be friends with everyone or follow everyone? no, but i'm okay with that, and isn't that all that really matters whether we vote up or vote down?
in the end, i try my hardest on finding the comedy in it all. it's too tragic otherwise.
