What is it with this voyeuristic schadenfreude attitude?
Not only staring at the misfortunes of others but filming it. To be frank, it disgusts me.

For example instead of saying a polite thank you for something it moved up to "many thanks", but now we see people saying "massive thanks" or "huge thanks". In the above example, instead of people/witnesses chatting amongst themselves and perhaps hoping the victims were all ok, they now post said images on the various social media forums with increasing gratuitous comments. Haven forbid if one of those involved was breaking the law - speeding, drunk, using mobile phone etc., then the comments would increase exponentially with what the punishment would be and how it would be carried out.
It's one thing informing of events, another to try and gain some sort of kudos for their own self gratification.
