A Digital Devil

Everyone who kept chihuahua at home or met one on his way knows how vexatious this little doggy can be. It can sometimes drive you mad with its relentless and mindless yapping and occasional ankle-biting. There is a reason why chihuahua behaves in this way. Its neurotic display of aggression compensates for its small size and extreme fragility. Actually, the little doggy is so delicate that you can crush it by accidentally sitting on it. Its posturing serves the purpose of letting the whole world know that chihuahua is a big bad dog.

A devil is no joke. This monster can drag your precious soul to hell and cast it into the fiery pit of flames. You can meet one also online. The only difference is that a digital devil resembles chihuahua with his/her behavior. Digital devils are on all kinds of internet venues but if a digital devil joins a Satanic forum, his aim is to prove to everyone how adversarial and antinomian he is because we all know that the internet is a serious business. He does it by constantly yapping at your feet, not exactly biting your ankles, just pulling your shoes. It’s an attempt to outsmart bigger forum dogs or avoid being called out on one’s bullshit. Sometimes, after losing a debate, the digital devils flee to their blogs where they indulge in happy yappy fest, obsessing over this person or that person and, like a broken record,  regurgitating the same crap over and over again. The whole thing is to remind everyone how nefarious and diabolical they are, just in case anyone fails to notice.

Like chihuahua is a ball of nerves, a digital devil is governed by his emotions. It’s very easy to piss him off and cause him to have a hissy fit even if if you meant no offense. He will call you vile names and accuse you of some ridiculous shit and once he calms down, he will say that it is just you being mean.

However, it would be a gross mistake to take a digital devil’s tantrum for genuine evil or even hostility. Behind the loud yapping of chihuahua there is a deep, if not obsessive, need for love and affection. And there is also fear. Let’s not forget about fear. These little dogs are afraid of everything and everybody. The same is with a digital devil. All he needs is recognition, acceptance and covering up his own insecurities.

Addendum.

Sadly, this blog angered a few chihuahuas who thought it was unfair and thus decided to yap up quite a storm file a complaint. Here it is:
