Jello's first visit to Dr. Freud

Doctor, please tell me what's wrong with me?   Why do I do the things that I do?

Yesterday, after swearing that I would never again enter that sight,  I responded on Politics forum.  I was barraged by insults, slanders and curses.   All of this because I didn't recognize something that they call Snark.

Admittedly,  my vocabulary is not the best,  so I looked up Snark.   Apparently Merriam Webster is as ignorant as I am,  because it's not listed.   

I also was called a Troll and a Lurker.   Now a troll, that's just stupid,  I'm clearly not a short fat doll.  I couldn't figure out what a lurker was.

Doctor,  I wasn't a great English student,  but i would think that I might remember these words.

Also Doctor,  I'm 51,  not old by today's standards,  I was called an old fogie by these condescending youths,    I tell you Doctor, it was as if I had entered the Lord of the Flies.   I never would have spoken to anybody with the vitriol that attacked me.   The kicker is that they agreed with me politically.

Doctor, why do I do this?  Every time that I go through this I swear that I'll never go back to that site.   Like a train wreck,  I have to look.  What's wrong with me, Doctor?

Dr. Freud:  I'm sorry,  our time is up.

A lurker is someone who watches but doesn't speak. There are a lot of lurkers on gardening. It's not a bad thing.

These were some of the meanest, nastiest response I've ever seen.

I think that I'm becoming my dad, not a bad thing. I would never have spoken to anybody the way that they spoke to me.

People feel free to be mean when they know they will never meet the person face to face.
