There are replies you may not give. There are comments you may not make. There are truths you may not tell, in the world of public relations, for the public are fickle, and behave as a mob.
A mob in all its feral, brutal depravity, lacking any and all of the qualities we laud upon humanity that allow us to feel so smug over all of the hapless animals that we raise ourselves over. And we are all, whether we admit it or not in public, under strict censorship of the mob.
Even admitting that the mob censors our thoughts and feelings and the expression thereof is risky. The mob may notice. Some parts of the internet glory in the mob.

The internet hates you. Were I being politically correct right now and toeing the party line I would instantly disagree with myself. Do not argue with the trolls! You make yourself look bad! Look at fucking Phil Fish!
Look at what happened to him! Poor Phil, we say. He meant well but he lost his cool. He let the internet bring out his naughty, bad side. The side that spoke what he actually thought and felt. Look what the internet did to him!Annie Hall (), from director-actor-co-writer Woody Allen, is a quintessential masterpiece of priceless, witty and quotable one-liners within a matured, focused and thoughtful film.
