Back to words...

Ah, yes. It's not good to be negative. It's only human nature that strife would occur on Internet networks since it occurs in families, in communities, in countries, and globally.

I started a discussion about "agathism" on Wordcraft, so I'll not repeat it here. However, Tim Alborn, one of my favorite limerick writers on OEDILF, wrote this nice limerick about it:

"All is well!"—so the optimists cry,
Which the pessimists say is a lie,
While the agathists state
There's a happier fate
That we'll happen upon, by and by.

Agathism recognizes the existence of evil but holds that all things tend toward the good.
