ARE YOU INTELLIGENT?
Intelligent people reject petty gossip. Gossip thrives in petty places, promulgated by petty, immature people who are devoid of character. Petty gossip is always malicious, unsupported by fact (and when believed) serves only one purpose…it infers some perverse authority on the monger. Hearsay (especially of a scandalous nature) is a cancer; it metastasizes among the intellectually and socially challenged…those who are only capable of following.
Gossip is the brother of lies, the cousin of censorship and the ally of hate; if you are intelligent, you realize that.
