first the definition because public service or public facility isn't the same as one owned by the public.
The word public doesn't really apply to most of the services we use online in that context. corporately owned but open for Access by the public.
In the social context there still a public forum.
Sometimes there's rules but depending on the service there's more or less or none
I've noticed a disturbing trend and I've seen it a few times from different people that I know and more from randoms. At least one of the people I know who has done this is diagnosed borderline.
That trend is posting something like a status or a comment in a public forum
Then being enraged by the fact people would leave a comment or attempt to engage in conversation. Even in support of their point.
Or with a couple strangers a similar version is when you reply they say I didn't ask you to comment
To which I finally have taken up saying "do you think you have a right to decide who is worthy of responding to you?"
NPD aspd and BPD all have problems with the mental construct of what or who others are
I've also seen it described as carry over issues with things like object permanence which if you think about the two together you start to see there's problems in processing what other people have the right to do in any given circumstance
Which I think translates pretty well to posting this is this because I say so don't reply on a public forum or even without the don't reply part but then getting enraged at how dare you violate them by putting a reply when by service rules anyone who has an account is free to reply
I think there's an erosion intelligence going on in this country I'm really scared for those who survive if this trend continues
It's hard to have a free people when the leadership ends up with these problems
if you can't conceptualize how to Independent parties exist in the first place let alone that someone might hold an image of you in their head from when they knew you like I've seen borderline people comment how creepy that is. No that's natural but that sort of mine said if they take office things like freedom expectation of privacy what is there isn't harassment and stalking dear God help us all
I saw it years back when there was talk about how one time even if they don't ask you to stop anything can be harassment
If anybody asked me to stop I have always respected that
The thing is The logical point I'm trying to make here is as an external being or entity from you I do not know what you like do not like anything like that unless it's communicated to me because I can't read a mind
then there's the concept of expectation of privacy which in public you do not have
If we're both free me saying something to you in public is my right
When we start talking about making that a civil or criminal offense without the other person having to try to walk away or say please don't do that again then we've gotten rid of freedom without realizing it
Don't get me wrong in what I just described there still is potential easy potential for it to become stalking or harassment the thing is does that person follow you if you tell them stop and you try to walk away arguably if you're both in the same public place the one who doesn't like it should leave unless being held in some way or direct physical contact is being made but that's already chargeable by things like assult.
We've already seen this sort of degradation enter into law the unsubstantiated claim of abuse or feeling threatened overrides just about everything else in fact in Minnesota there's some PDFs on government servers were they almost boast about that
At one time it was known people lie. Being proud that you've destroyed standards of evidence handmade innocent skin Victorville off of here see you should be on trial for treason
