    What it accomplishes is damage our culture by proving the pernicious nature of social media and the internet and that it has devolved our society to where now there is a record of your every word, your every action, and since we are all people and less than perfect, that someone will go back to your kindergarten if necessary and find that you took an extra juice as a baby in order to defame, harm and damage you in order to gain a political advantage.

    That there is no longer any sense of fair play, ethics or decency in our culture and that people as a whole must be much more guarded now, that there is no "second chances," no mistakes, no forgiveness anymore, no understanding or perspective, and that no one can afford to be open, honest or sincere, much less express a thought that stands out different from the pack, otherwise your life will be ruined, careers destroyed, and so controlled by your enemies.

    Worst of all, it has everyone apologizing for things they never should apologize for. People say stupid things, but now there is a photograph of your every waking moment, a camera on your every thought, Big Brother has moved in to attack you for every politically incorrect thing you can be attacked for, small people on the other side of the planet with nothing better to do can now criticize you and try to alienate you on a whim, AND WE WONDER WHY CHILDREN GROWING UP IN THIS NEW WORLD THAT ADULTS HAVE CREATED SOMETIMES NOW LOSE IT AND BRING A GUN TO SCHOOL AND SHOOT PEOPLE? You've have just walked across the answer.

    You weren't warned when you were a kid? They kept talking about your "permanent record" right? Who knew it would be Twitter?

    Most high profile NFL recruits are highly scrutinized nowadays. See Josh Rosen
