Tom Scocca “On Smarm”

In Tom Scocca’s “On Smarm”, Scocca discusses “smarm” which is the idea of snarky comments being made and not addressing them. The essay discuses that people do make negative comments and that they are hurtful, but that does not mean that they should not be said. Comments that are not exactly positive are not bad; it all depends on the context in which the comments are given. Constructive criticism in order words. The world is surely lacking in that. A lot of people think hurtful words can seriously ruin everything, which is true. But “hurtful” words can be good too, just depending on the way they are phrased.
