It's crazy how many people fake having mental illnesses/disorders on social media these days especially Tik Tok because they think it's "quirky" but then use the excuse that they are "self-diagnosed" which is very toxic. Anybody else have any thoughts about this?

@KidDJ This exactly ( I wish they would add emojis on this site)

The web can be misused to bully people, create a persona of oneself, or can be useful. It was much better at the start of existence. The WWW had lots of nice intellects to meet and chat with. ♡

@Lookn4raysofSunshine - Very interesting: heart emoji at the end of your posting which has suddenly turned into something else. I agree with your statement too: worthwhile things will always get co-opted for deplorable purposes. It just seems to be human nature to push limits in both good and bad directions.
