Why Sneaky Link Culture is Toxic

Sneaky Link

The internet is a beautiful thing. It’s great for connecting with people, sharing ideas, and spreading knowledge with others. But sometimes that can be dangerous too. Like when you’re in a relationship and your partner has been using sneaky links to get you to do things for them without even saying hello first.

Also, it’s manipulative

If you’ve ever been in a relationship, you know how hard it is to stay on top of all the little details. It’s easy to forget appointments—or skip them altogether—and end up getting caught off guard when your partner asks about it later. It’s also difficult to keep track of what was supposed to be done by whom, when, and where.

Sneaky link culture takes advantage of this lack of attention by manipulating people into doing things for each other that they wouldn’t otherwise do themselves (or at least not on their own). People who use sneaky links are more likely than others within their social circle or workplace group. Because they have less time than most people do. Thus they need shortcuts that help them get through life easier so they can focus more on what matters most: themselves!

It’s disingenuous

The next time you’re in an online conversation, listen for the word “cheating.” It’s a common one, and it’s often used as a way to describe behavior that feels wrong or unethical.

But what if there were another word for this behavior? What if we all agreed not to go there anymore? What would happen if we treated our relationships like they were real-life friendships instead of just online ones?

Super unfair

If you’re dating someone and they have a bunch of friends who also date each other. It’s unfair to both of them. It’s even more unfair for your partner. Because they get to date all these people who are “friends” with each other but not your partner.

Do you know what else is unfair? When someone asks you out on a date and then brings their friend with them because they want to make sure that no one at the bar will be able to talk shit about them after they leave (and this happens all the time).

It’s not a real relationship

I have been in a lot of relationships, and I can tell you that sneaky link culture is not one. A real relationship is built on trust, honesty, and respect for both people involved. When someone tries to sneakily manipulate you into doing something. Or saying something out of line with your own values or morals (or even just being supportive). That’s not a real relationship. It’s just another way for them to get what they want from the situation without having any responsibility for it themselves.

If someone tries to get their way by manipulating others around them into doing their bidding (and then acting surprised when everyone else acts annoyed). This behavior is toxic and dishonest at its core; it hurts everyone around them. Because nobody wants to deal with someone who constantly lies about how much they care about other people’s feelings!

Sneaky link culture is toxic. Don’t engage in it.

Sneaky link culture is manipulative, disingenuous, and unfair. It’s a bad way to build a business relationship. It shouldn’t be tolerated by anyone who cares about the future of the web or their own personal brands. And yes, that includes you.

    It’s also not really a relationship at all. It’s more like two people who have been friends forever. But want so badly to get married they can taste it on the tip of their tongues! So they come up with some kind of deal where they both pretend like this thing will last forever. When really what happened was one person tricked another into thinking he had any interest whatsoever in her/his life after he’d been dating her exclusively for years (and sometimes even longer).

    This type of deception isn’t just hurtful because it suggests your friend isn’t invested enough in their relationship with you. But also because once people start seeing through these masks there’s no going back: no more pretending anymore!


    So, there you have it. The takeaway is that sneaky link culture is toxic and dishonest. Don’t engage in it, because it’s not real friendship. And will just lead to disappointment or anger if you try to be friends with someone who has done this to you. And if they do then they are manipulative people who don’t deserve our time or respect
