Of course, I'm standing on your side Lycan. We stand as one.

I know this well. But recently feel, this is just an excuse of cowards.
Once, I got suffered an anonymous attack. Got PTSD, depression, insomnia, anorexia, and so on. But now, it's not a threat for me anymore. Because I learned the mechanism of why they do that. And got the purpose to live. I can't get defeated by such meaningless and worthless trolls anymore.
The reason why they're doing is exactly [ Schadenfreude ]
. Human race's DNA built-in social apoptosis system. This phenomenon is caused by [ Oxytocin ]
, the hormone of love, union, and hatred and sacrifice. These sequential phenomena are the result of the human race's evolution, species peculiarity.
Obviously, human is the biggest killer on the earth who killed the same species members intentionally, especially in out of the food chain. Each community makes the common enemy to unite the members. In the case of the smaller community, they pick the specific scapegoat. In the case of the bigger community like factions or nations, they estimate the other factions as their enemies. And brainwash the members of communities to fight against the enemy. It's like the community itself has its own personality and uses individual people like just disposable cells.
And Oxytocin is the genetic built-in brainwashing mechanism. It is the receiver of 'community's will', and takes control of individual people to make the action, sometimes violently. Then those who have enough time but nothing else to do will receive the command, and be controlled by the 'community's will' and enforce something.
And, sometimes even countries make mistakes, as history tells. Nowadays, those communities on social media work like virtual countries. And not all of the leaders of those communities are enough experienced. Naturally, some man-made accidents will happen.
These all are the result of the human race's evolution. Countless attempts of getting a temporarily false relative advantage by defeating someone greater. Result of abandoning the chance to being stronger. Sacrificing individual's human rights for the community's good. Even though sometimes that community itself turns into evil. Humans are still making fun by watching killing someone. Internet is a modern colosseum.
Surrender before this phenomenon, or stay strong and fight back against the phenomenon itself, this decision is still in our own paws, individual's will.
So, I personally feel. The key point is, not to fight on their field. Do not fight in the modern colosseum. Instead, break the colosseum itself.
Modern human rule whispers that 'If you want to get rid of suffering as a victim, be a new offender to victimize your offender'. Perhaps, it's within an allowance of the rule.
Like, we can accuse someone because of the suicide trigger, and draw mass people's attention to avenge the offender. However. If that 'new victim' commits suicide and another someone accuses us because of another suicide trigger? And the endless cycle of hatred begins. This is what I'm calling 'evil humanity'. The negative side effect of Oxytocin.
Oxytocin has a good effect too. It is the hormone of love and unity. It boosts the feeling of love and sympathy. But if it gets corrupted, the blessing turns into a curse. The origin is the same. Love and hatred, these are two sides of one coin.
So. The subject is, if we can take control of the neurological transmitter. Otherwise, we'll be controlled and become a mindless slave of 'community's will'.
Many people are already brainwashed and under the control of that 'community's will'. Perhaps it's natural as a human. Sacrifice is already built-in in human's social systems for long history.
I saw the possibility in us, therians and otherkins. Genetically, we might have the potential to refuse the command of 'community's will' and keep our own ability to think standalone. Because of the difference from 'normal humans'.
We all can be just an individual animal, who stands with their own will and own paws, no matter how normal people and the community do or think. I personally think, this is our strength. We can't be 'normal', at least so easily. But we don't have to do the same of 'normal'. Even if everyone is attacking or abusing someone for no reason, but we can refuse to join the bullies. We all have the potential to refuse the evil humanity.
Of course, I never force everyone to fight against those internet bullies. I just want to say that don't forget there are many choices. Hide, escape, secure some contacts and abandon the account, move to other platforms, other communities, or even other countries, and make other friends. There are many choices before we pick the ultimate end. We can break the colosseum's wall and escape endlessly. No matter how people behave or how the community says, but we can survive. Because we're just individual animals. We can make our own packs, regardless of the human community.
And. Personally, as a creator, I mourn the lost.
I'm sorry but I don't know them well. And I know this is not the only case. If I took one wrong step, I might have doomed too. Just, maybe, I was lucky, and I was not 'normal'. The difference is small, but sometimes it changes decisively.
What I still can do is only creation. Creation is the only way to defeat the void. Even if we avenge the offenders, but I don't think the creator will be happy enough. Because, creator's ultimate enemy is one's ability limit, and the 'nothingness'. Those internet trolls are just obstructs.
I'm really sad that creator got suffered by those unworthy people. But I personally don't play their 'game'. I don't fight in their colosseum. I work on what I should do. And working on something constructive is what all of us still can do.
I really hope everyone will never lose their true self. Please don't dive into the endless cycle of hatred. Please don't corrupt yourself to never be a mindless slave of 'community's will'.
That will be the most valuable memento for the lost. At least I personally think so.
Rest in peace, sincerely.
I mourn the lost, and bless the living. To make the future brighter, to never surrender before the evil humanity.
