Rudeness on the Internet

It seems like wherever you go on the internet the toxicity remains consistent.

I'm thinking there came a time when people started to think it was cool to just let their children "grow up" rather than actually raise them. Problem: they never grew up, nor do their children in turn, and so on. No manners. The selfish brats behave like selfish brats online too.

@JaggedLittlePill Well this gives me hope then, thanks for sharing :)

@HatterM It does seem like there's less of an emphasis on manners and morality in the culture overall compared to previous generations.

@HatterM [quote][i]they never grew up, nor do their children in turn, and so on.[/i] No manners. The selfish brats behave like selfish brats online too.[/quote] I agree. I see it consistently with some middle aged or older people. Maybe it's[i] emotional[/i] maturity they lack.

Some are too arrogant it's annoying, others believe they're the owners of this place

People who behave in that manner, do so because they're miserable, and like the old saying goes, misery loves company. Don't engage, refuse to be their company, and they will crawl back into the cave from which they emerged.
I think that's mostly true. The exceptions are places that are heavily moderated, like certain subreddits, some news media comment areas, etc, where the rules are strict about what kinds of comments are allowed and people strictly enforce them.

I noticed theres a lot of touchy vile people on the social anxiety forum.

Similar phenomenon to a public toilet. It takes organization, commitment and ownership to keep a place functional, and just a handful of louts to set the bar so low that the only people left are garbage

There seems to be a lot here recently, can’t be done with it.

Nah, you're just too much of a coward, and think everyone needs to be sensitive and walk on eggshells around you.

The net is probably the nearest thing to "freedom" left. As you're not subject to the normal language, behaviours and norms that you would be in, say, your workplace. Within reason and ToS of course.

@jshm2 And you're just another random fag that wants to run his mouth lol. You're exactly the type I'm referring too 😂
There was literally no reason to come on to this post with your negative bullshit troll ass dude

Seems to be happening every where you go out in the world as well.
