- Be a nice person
- Turn off anon messages
And that’s it. Tumblr is actually designed so that you can only ‘like’ things and/or share things by ‘reblogging’. Those two actions are, usually, acts of kindness and it is usually unfavourable for someone wanting to criticise you to actually reblog and share your post because it is usually a nice thing.
Therefore, the primary way you will ever receive hate is through a direct message in your ask box. And, because most haters are actually pathetic cowards who don’t want to risk getting hate in THEIR ask boxes, they won’t attack you with their own name. That way you’ll only get hate from the belligerent or the short-sighted.
But seriously, never let the stupid, unjustified and completely arbitrary things people say get to you. Let it slide off you. Be confident in who you are and what you can do.
And, if you’re up to it and you think it’s wise, never be afraid to SLAP A BITCH DOWN!

I read certain comments around YouTube on people’s covers of songs that never cease to annoy.
…when people think their opinion is the most important thing in the world on matters of music because they have studied it at some level at some point in their lives. EARTH TO FOOLS: I know of plenty of people who study music BECAUSE THEY SUCK AT IT and also, just because you know how to read sheet music doesn’t mean you are more in-tune with sound. You ain’t so special so shut it.
…is that some people think that by singing in a higher octave one can magically avoid going flat on notes… What the actual fuck? Earth to idiots. People have the most control over their voice in their strongest range. Therefore, if someone’s voice is more comfortable in a lower octave they are more likely to avoid bum notes in that range. FOOLS!
…when some people point out minor things like “you messed up the words in that line” or “you missed that note.” NO ONE CARES! I’m SOOOO sorry that I can’t afford to go book into a studio and have them master and smooth my audio for this amateur YouTube video. I’M SO SORRY FOR BEING A HUMAN WHO IS NOT PERFECT!
…and lastly, people who can not appreciate different kinds of voices. So often are there comments where people say “sing this higher (oh sure, because I want to sound more like every other poppy, guitar playing guy - this is what I do)” or “don’t use so much vibrato because they don’t do that in the original (this is a cover not a copy…)”
No, I’m not normal nor will I ever try to be. All I will ever do is what makes me happy and what is right.3
MUST WATCH! I made this video for all YouTubers but if you are someone or know someone who uploads videos of themselves to YouTube and has, this is especially for you.
Is it coincidence or fate that I just made a vlog about called ‘Haters Gonna Hate’ last night… http://youtu.be/8XVxtTAfxM0
Bringing others down is a pathetic and cruel.
An average of 5000 girls and boys commit suicide every year due to online harassment/bullying.
Make a change. Think before act.
People don’t realize how serious online bullying is. Please spread the word and make it stop!
I feel sorry for them. Really.
I don’t care whether it’s a joke or whether you actually dislike them enough to want them to die, just don’t do it.
No one should be made to feel like an outcast, or like they’re hated just because they’re different. Ever.
If you don’t like them, avoid them, move on, find people who don’t but don’t go out to attack them. It’s so much easier to do this on the internet too, close the tab, go to a different page but don’t make them feel fucking hated.
Watch this video! This is for anyone who uses YouTube and anyone who uploads videos themselves to YouTube.
What can I say? Haters gon hate.
