It is proper Netiquette to think positive when consuming content. Don't think the worst.
Positive thinking opens up the possibility for positive things to happen. Plan for the best and prepare for the worst. Electronics have a digital disconnect between reality and feeling. In real life, engagement provides many non-verbal messages. Online, messages are communicated digitally through audio, video, and text. Positive thinking completely discounts any negative feelings from digital contact because it is not real.
Positive thinking is a state of mind, not a state of thought. The positive state of mind does not jump to negative conclusions. Even if it is a correct assumption. Jumping to negative conclusions comes from bad experiences and a negative attitude. Do not let past experiences make you a negative person. Look at every engagement in a positive light and protect yourself from negative comments with political correctness. When you have something negative to post turn it into a positive. Post a positive that corrects the negative you were going to highlight.
Think positive because it will contribute to a better experience.
