In Response To: The Silver Tongued Devil ()
Perhaps if we were carefully watching, some of the atrocities committed against our fellow Internet users could have been averted.
Perhaps if we were not comfortably nestled in our all-knowing persona, some innocent could have been saved.
Perhaps, if we had followed the trails so clearly laid out before us, we would have sensed the danger of the predator in our midst.
Perhaps, if we were not so quick to leap to judgment based on the complaints of a few [the predators, no less], we would not have driven innocent people from our midst.
Perhaps, given the deceptive nature of the predator, we would have examined situations more closely before we reacted and condemned.
Perhaps, if we were man or woman enough to admit that a predator is possessed of a smooth tongue, we would have recognized his or her predatory characteristics.
Perhaps ...... a lot of things could have turned out differently.
