One of the less awesome parts of the internet is the veil of anonymity that so many people take advantage of by writing things they’d never say in person. We’ve all been guilty of it at one point or another.
The other side of that is that people think they’re being slick when they leave a bunch of comments on an old post with a clear agenda. It’s why I don’t envy TripAdvisor’s job for having to weed out fake reviews. Often when I review hotels in smaller cities where there are only a couple of competitors, something like a year later I’ll randomly get five new comments over a week on the review bashing the hotel.
But here’s a unique one. Yesterday some “random” comments were left on some posts about the Korean Air nut rage incident, all from the same IP.
This comment in and of itself is reasonable:
Won’t stop me from flying Korean Air.
As is this one:
Cut her some slack,, no big deal,, everyone get’s all bent out of shape over nothing!!!!
This one is slightly concerning (if you’re majoring in management in college and think physically assaulting people that don’t listen to you is appropriate, well…):
I am majoring in management in college and admire her ability to command respect from her employees. Too many places have employees that are careless and don’t follow rules and policies. I applaude her actions and feel she did not over step. Good managers like her run very successful businesses.
And then there’s this one:
Dude should consider himself lucky to kneel before a hottie like Heather Cho!
Indeed, Purser Park should feel honored to have been physically assaulted by “hottie” Heather Cho. Damn straight!
