RSN™ Editorial: End The Hate

ATTACKING THE INNOCENT


– – – – –

We have just seen an example of what happens when trolls act on their hatred instead of understanding the issues and real parties responsible.

In London, it appears, a man so filled with hate, that he is indistinguishable from the terrorists he hates, engaged in an act of terrorism himself.

Our hearts go out to the real people who were harmed by the attack in London yesterday.

However, we have to be careful even when dealing with scamsScams A Scam is a confidence trick - a crime -  is an attempt to defraud a person or group after first gaining their trust through deception. Scams or confidence tricks exploit victims using their credulity, naïveté, compassion, vanity, irresponsibility, or greed and exploiting that. Researchers have defined confidence tricks as "a distinctive species of fraudulent conduct ... intending to further voluntary exchanges that are not mutually beneficial", as they "benefit con operators ('con men' - criminals) at the expense of their victims (the 'marks')". A scam is a crime even if no money was lost. and scammers. People get hurt and they need and want someone to blameBlame Blame or Blaming is the act of censuring, holding responsible, making negative statements about an individual or group that their action or actions are socially or morally irresponsible, the opposite of praise. When someone is morally responsible for doing something wrong, their action is blameworthy. By contrast, when someone is morally responsible for doing something right, we may say that his or her action is praiseworthy. Blame imparts responsibility for an action or act, as in that they made a choice to perform that act or action.. They want to hurt someone as they have been harmed. Retaliation and revenge are a cancer that grows until it destroys you.

Our company has been wrongly blamed for many things over the last couple of years as well, but in the end, all hatred breeds is craziness and obsession.

Trolls and haters are really no different than scammers. They just want to do what THEY want to do, regardless of who is hurt.

They are criminals that attempt to deceive a victim into sending more or performing some other activity that benefits the scammer. in our view – if you scam a scammer, it is still a scam.

Recently several anti-scam pages were deleted by Facebook, and several admins added to Facebook’s watch list. We have lost several of our own admins as well over the last year.

We predicted early last year that Facebook would become more strict and start rigidly enforcing their Community Standards in the reporting of scammers. We helped work with SCARSSCARS SCARS - Society of Citizens Against Relationship Scams Inc. A government registered crime victims' assistance & crime prevention nonprofit organization based in Miami, Florida, U.S.A. SCARS supports the victims of scams worldwide and through its partners in more than 60 countries around the world. Incorporated in 2015, its team has 30 years of continuous experience educating and supporting scam victims. Visit www.AgainstScams.org to learn more about SCARS. on the development of an Industry Standard for Ethics In Scam Reporting, but very few even bother to follow it.

We have learned and evolved, and hopefully – through becoming a Facebook partner, and our close connection with the U.S.D.o.J. – become a better organization and able to meet the needs of the many better than we could before.

Just remember that hate is its own master. Hate controls YOU, not the other way around. That doesn’t mean we are not vigilant and do all we can to end scamming, but it does mean that ethics are important in what we all do.
