Constantly insulting and incriticisable.
I know I am a dick but this is way worse.
One usually points at something like https://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2004/03/19 at this point in time. As for uncriticisable then I have never found anything yet that I could not criticise, occasionally it is pointless but it is still possible.
Easy, you can hide behind relative anonymity and say whatever you like. The internet isnt really a place with too many consequences.
There is no anonymity on the internet. You can find out tons of personal info about people with just a name. I can show you how if you like.
Cause stupid fools also use the Internet and they irritate the living fuck out of others.
Same thing happens IRL.
People hate others for certain things.
People irritate other people.
Just be nice and shrug it off.
If you don't want to be treated badly, then don't treat others badly.
I see it in youtube comments and sometimes shades of it here. I think those people are either miserable or they are cowards who never voice their opinion in real life, and internet gives them a chance to vent. Or the third kind that just want some form of attention by saying something they know a lot of people will get pissed by reading.
Because behind a screen, some people feel in invulnerable, and give themselve the right to be mean to anyone.
Just ignore them and move on.
This. Freedom from consequence tempts some people to unleash their inner fuckwad, that they usually keep in check in public for fear of retribution.
Is that a cat?
Also is not information more spreadable on the internet?
So many devs quit because of the constant and unnecessary cursing of users for some minor delay, failure or unwillingness of delivering a feature(which might cause issue to dev's normal life). And somehow hip never gets attacked.
It's significantly easier to just say whatever you want on the internet. I do have a policy of only saying things to people I would say to their face. Too bad i'm brutally honest IRL too.
However it's also easier to just not care what people say to you on the internet. Someone calls you a name? Who cares? They're just some random person over the internet. People who get overly sensitive or offended are hilarious.
It depends on whereabouts you are on the internet. Most places are sane and respectful whilst others anything goes so if you feel offended in this you have to remove yourself from them. Sometimes people on the internet only want positive feedback but that's just not the reality of the internet, so to avoid it, it's best to not use it or have the disclaimed "Please only leave positive comments".
However, in doing so, they would be unintentionally asking for negative comments.
Because "niceness" is a societal ideal of just certain communities. (I see that you're Canadian) The internet is global, however- so we make our own goddamn rules.
What rules? People on the internet seem to do whatever the f*** they want without giving a damn. In some cases it is freaking pathetic how low they go in order to get attention, even if they drive someone to suicide in the process.
Well adjusted people don't hit self-destruct over comments on the internet. They turn off the computer and walk away. People who kill themselves have pre-existing mental conditions that aren't helped by that kind of casual erasure.
Everybody has their own morality, much of it happens to align, but there are really millions of individuals online- with their own styles, attitudes, points of view, and they all theoretically have a valid place in the world...maybe not all on *this* forum.
Easy: Peer pressure! That's the problem.
This. Sooo much this. :\
Though I am one to avoid arguments and the like, reading them feels just the same as participating in them.
If I followed that, I'd say practically nothing on the internet.
I do not think peer pressure is responsible per se, maybe in real life but it is slightly different on the internet. However there is an observation from games where if your would be team are dragging your game down then you have to set the barrier to entry for your team high or you go down, if anybody that joins is an asset, however small, then that is a different matter entirely. Or if you prefer this is why when it is combined with the deliberately obtuse and near impenetrable mechanics seen in most attempts at the concept that DOTA/MOBA games feature such awful communities.
Cause anybody can get it
Anonymity helps, coupled with the idea that really nothing can stop you.
If I call you a "piece of shit," on the Temp, what happens to me in real life? Nothing, you got insulted and I leave unharmed.
