The phenomenon of attacking or criticizing without fully understanding the context is unfortunately not unique to Indonesia and can be observed in many online communities around the world. However, the existence of a specific group of people known as buzzers, who can be hired to spread certain messages or disrupt discussions, is a concerning issue.
In the case of Grumpi, it seems to be a metaphorical representation of this phenomenon. Grumpi is depicted as a "vehicle of war" that is ready to disrupt the concentration of visitors to an exhibition and is dressed in a camouflage uniform made of plastic. This imagery suggests that the behavior of buzzers and those who engage in attacking online is akin to waging a war on the internet, where the battleground is the online space and the weapons are words.
The use of camouflage also suggests that buzzers and those who engage in online attacks may try to blend in with the general population and disguise their true intentions or identities. This can make it difficult to identify and hold them accountable for their actions.
Overall, the phenomenon of attacking without context and the existence of buzzers is a complex issue that requires a multifaceted approach to address. It is important to promote critical thinking and media literacy to help individuals better understand and contextualize information they encounter online. Additionally, there needs to be greater accountability for those who engage in harmful online behavior, whether through stronger regulations or better enforcement of existing laws.
