If my blog post is impeccably well-timed and I manage to rise above the sheer volume of words on screen, I then risk something far worse than apathy, far greater than insignificance... I risk comments.

Are you fed up with all the hateful, hurtful rubbish that's in nearly every comments section on the internet? Me too. So I've come up with a solution. The 'say it to their face' rule.

Tell Us What You Think

Twitter of course breeds opinions faster than Nick Ferrari on a Waltzer. I no longer need to stand on the top of an African mountain to "find myself", I can quite easily log onto my 'interactions' to find that someone anonymously thinks I look like Ed Sheeran with AIDS.

Ferrari entered this weekend's Hungarian Grand Prix with a  sense of foreboding to be honest... at least that's what it seemed like from Fernando Alonso's public statements. The Spaniard made it clear that the team needed to have a good showing in Hungary or face a summer break full of anxiety over what best to do to salvage the year.

The anonymity of the internet at large brings with it the exciting positives of more discussion, more openness and, maybe most importantly, more honesty.

Personally, I tend to be less bigoted than I used to be, but when I do get on my high horse, which happens more than I like to admit, I tend to direct my anger towards the people I perceive to be ignorant, stupid, naive or socialist.

My point is that people who make nasty comments via social media (or any other media) should think before they speak. They have no idea of how their comments might affect someone. Yes, I put my outfit out there to be judged, but that doesn't give anyone the right to attack me.

There are only about three paintings on this planet that I am able to say that I 'like', but last week Vladimir Umanets, the Yellowist, decided that one of them wasn't quite good enough. So he decided to improve it, with the addition of some half-legible scribbling in one of its corners.
