On the Cal site I write for (GoldenBearReport.com), I recently dealt with a nasty troll who derailed a conversation I was trying to create on our message boards. I ended up having to lock up the thread prematurely (within an hour) due to his sexism and raw negativity towards women’s athletics. It was so frustrating. Every now and then I have to deal with this kind of negativity. It gets old.
This got me to thinking about how Cake is the exact opposite and how I’ve never once dealt with a negative troll like that on here. In part I’m sure that’s a credit to those on here who keep trolls out, but it’s also a credit to the mission of Cake. Namely, to have a great conversations without having to worry about nasty trolls and people derailing them. Cake has done a great job of setting this tone. Hopefully more people will discover Cake and the awesome platform it gives those of us who want to have serious, thoughtful conversations! Happy Friday everyone!
