The spread of the Internet has led to the creation of what is called a shared culture on the Internet or a unique Internet culture that did not exist in the real world.
For example, the idea of open source is a culture that was unthinkable without a network: users of the world could become developers and development cooperators by making the source public.
Besides, movements such as writing novels, writing lyrics, and composing using networks have advanced, and it has become possible to operate video conferences with a simple system.
“Do not trust anonymous information” is the principle.
I state that “information from anonymous people is not considered until they can be confirmed.”
Whether it’s the Internet or old media like newspapers, television, and books, you can throw away any information you don’t know who is the sender. This is because the credibility as a fact is low.
With the spread of the Internet, the number of anonymous senders is larger in the amount of information distributed. However, my criterion that “the information sent by anonymous senders is not recognized as a fact remains the same.”
“If you don’t know what you say, you’re less responsible for what you say.” And there is nothing disadvantageous or troublesome for professionals or individuals based on this criterion.
This is not to say, of course, that “stop sending anonymous information.”
It merely states the fact that “the person who receives the information sent by the anonymous person gives the lowest creditworthiness”. It’s perfectly acceptable to have that sent out anonymously. They are simply not trusted.
At least, I, a professional writer, do not trust anything.
