Trash Talking: Does it Need to Expand Outside the Gaming Community?

Digibytes writer Christopher Pascarelli, talks about the Justin Carter story, and talks about if trash talking is really necessary to be uploaded on to social networking sites, such as Facebook, and Twitter? Or should it stay in the gaming community? Plus a picture of a little girl arguing with a pony!

The real question is does it belong in society at anytime. I believe if the world would learn not to be jerks to each other we'd have a much happier lives.

Well put my friend, but there is good trash talking between friends, for me and a few of my buddies, when we rag on one another, but we do it in a civil and fun manner.

I call that friendly banter, trash talking is against people whom you don't know nor do they know your sense of humor.

if it would be a perfect world, we would all jump off the building because our minds can't accept it.

Trash talking can be fun when done in a right way. When I played football, trash talking was good to get a competitive game going. After the game was over, the rivalry was still there but there wasn't any ill intent for the player.

To me its a matter of fortitude. When you leave trash talking to go onto berating someone and being racially insensitive, then of course, that's not trash talking that's just being ignorant.

But if I hear some trash talk, I offer my own. Then I raise my level of game to beat out the trash talker. In other words, I get more competitive. It's motivation for me.

Well said, but let's look at the big picture here, do we need to express our trash talk on Facebook or twitter?

'if it would be a perfect world, we would all jump off the building because our minds can't accept it.'

Where did you get that nugget from, The Matrix?

@Caseh

LOL! No. I actually I got that from some women I've dated who said that too much of a good thing they can't trust. It's well known that is the human condition. We expect tragedy even when there is none to be found.

@Static212

Trash talk is trash talk. It can be found anywhere and even in commercials. Twitter and FB are just outlets for these people to express themselves. With that said, some things should be kept to yourself. It's all in the accordance of having good judgement. Unfortunately, it isn't trash talk you read on social networks such as Twitter. Its more so antagonizing and threatening words. That, to me, leaves the definition of trash talk and becomes something else.

Stop being so sensitive.

Society as a whole should learn that any feelings that are written behind the keyboard shouldn't be taken seriously. The Internet allows us to talk smack without worrying about the consequences. Let's just say many of the things that are said through the Internet wouldn't be told if it was face to face. I for one find online ranting amusing so keep it coming.

@ripsta7th please read the article, and you will see how I honestly feel about it.

Can I just add this? The problem here is the majority of people have no sense of decorum and/or tact.

Like that kid posting that on Facebook, how did he even think that was okay to say, especially in an era where that topic is so sensitive? Scratch that, there's never a good time for that.

My trash talk consist of things concerning the game itself. "Aha, you can't aim!" "Oh I'm coming for you, run if you must"

But to post something like that on FB is just plain stupid. Because I know my words can be misinterpreted. Unfortunately, that kid didn't know that.

Can't we all just get a bong and a PS4?
