Be Nice on the Internet Week

Yeah, it's a real thing, you idiot.

Sick of snarky tweets, passive-aggressive Facebook updates and abusive website comments? Real Simple magazine has proclaimed Jan. 9-13 “Be Nice on the Internet Week,” launching a Facebook-based campaign to redefine negative net-speak. Will it make a difference? Oh, probably not. But we could all use a break from the net’s bad vibes. Plus, we love the campaign’s hugging-robot image by Canadian illustrator Graham Roumieu.
