shot Oct. 30, thank you to “The Buzz!” production team for their patience, i had cramps that day. Thanks thanks! And thank you also to the hosts for the upbeat intro and voice-over!
A good empirical study to make, too, is: What sort of people engage in bullying or “paninira” in the internet? those that don’t involve public interest or issues. – A psychological- profile- sort- of- study. We could probably ask the psychologists: My theory is that, those who engage in this (bullying, paninira in the internet) have low self-esteem. Just a theory — Let’s ask our friends in psych. (i probably read that somewhere, it’s not even original, or my siblings who’ve worked in the psych ward probably mentioned it in a conversation, or sumthin’) What is the cause of low self-esteem? — i don’t know, it’s probably complicated, ask the psychologists! (criminals however are another matter). Thank god it’s Friday! Happy weekend, y’all!
