Quoting Quiverfull: Bitter Rooms or Silencing Techniques?

from Growing Up Duggar page 155

Harmful Gossip

One other big issue we’ve witnessed in the social media world is that some people get hooked on reading gossip and then post their own slanderous statements about others, whom they sometimes don’t even know. Or they post something they would never say to that person face-to-face. It comes across as though those posters have nothing better to do with their time.

We’ve heard that some discussion boards or chat rooms right be better named bitter rooms because of those drawn to them often seem rather bitter. Possibly they’ve harbored resentment for circumstances or hurts in their own lives. And since bitter people seem to gravitate toward other bitter people, these sites seem to be the place to hang out. Misery loves company. Unfortunately, some people seem to derive much pleasure from nit-picking other people’s lives.

“Bitter Rooms”? What do you think? Been on the internet since 1995 and this is the first time seeing message boards referred to as ‘Bitter Rooms‘ Is this merely a big old ‘F-You’ to the online critics of the Duggars? 😉
