Violent Words Advertising & Fear-Oriented Words Advertising

by : Susan Nichols

Have you noticed the inundation of violent words used to
"positively" promote web site and online services? In
today's atmosphere of terrorism, why is there "not" a
recognition that terms like the following promote fear and
negative emotions: "Killer ads" "Blast your Readers
with..." "Explode your traffic..." And if the user of these
terms "intends" to gain customers by tactics of fear - Why?
Do you 'want' to do business or buy from someone who would
personally hurt you? Offend you? Blast you? Kill you?

Those who use such terms will be defensive against my
viewpoints, but as a person who wants peace in our world,
I encourage all of us, including myself, to "think" before
we use such words that depict fear, violence, hatred and
words used in terrorism.

Am I an extremist? Perhaps, but before using such phrases,
visually place yourself in the same room with someone who
lost a loved one on 9-11 and try to ask them if they like
these terms? Would they 'buy' from you?

The unfortunate reality is that if a person were to totally
avoid working with web sites that use these terms, he/she
might as well not work online -- the usage of these words is
That Prevalent!

It's obvious that the users of these phrases do not mean
them literally, but what concerns me is how saturated the
mind can become with such syntax. "Words" DO affect each of
us. There is a Bible verse that says, "As a man (woman)
thinketh in his heart, so is he/she" (Proverbs 23:7). As we
think, we speak -- as we speak, we influence -- as we
influence, we change lives!!! Let's not blast, explodeArticle Search, nor
kill each other in our advertising! There are "numerous"
online dictionaries and thesauruses where nonviolent words
and terms can be found! Bookmark this one today:

This IS important! What can each of us do to make a stand
against violence and terrorism? -- help change our "speech"
on-line and off-line!
