#@*!!! Anonymous anger rampant on Internet

have any of you found that being
anonymous makes you more inclined to act pissy and angry when some thing on line gets your ruffles in a tight ?
Or are you generally pissy and angry IRL and just carry it over to your on line time ?

One reason for the vitriol that emerges on the Web, experts say, is the anonymity the Internet provides. Commenters seldom use their real names, and even if they do, the chance for retaliation is slim.

Re: #@*!!! Anonymous anger rampant on Internet

Yes, I feel like when I see some post. I first got on this site to read up on a company that owed me money. I found myself responding to post that pissed me off. After making a comment that I wished I could take back, I know ignor most post and try to research new companies to help other people keep from being cheated,
as I was.

Take Care.

Did you have any luck getting your money back from the company that you came here to reseach ?

Now that has got to be the oldest dodge in the world ever since a checking account was invented.

I find it almost impossible to become really 'angry' on the Internet, yes there are some really 'stupid' people that just can't get a grip on logic,
and there are some who seem to be on line for the express object of seeing how quick they can show their ass. But just exactly how important is your opinion to my daily life ? ZERO, and
But just exactly how important is my opinion to your daily life ? ZERO,
so how can anyone justify anger .
Now when someone comes out of left flied with some kind of BS name calling and opinions against proven facts on a personal level stubborn is what I do get trying to show them just how silly their BS is but angry,, besides I'm not using a bogus nick name so I don't guess I feel the same level of being Anonymous
as some would.

maybe you hit the nail on the head!?those who resort to anger dont have a daily life/dont like their daily life/are emotionally dependent on a specific set of personal standards that are not improving their life!?anger is certainly not considered normal healthy communication!?it reveals a grievance of some kind,an inability to function normally/cooperatively/and happily!?permanent anger or the tendency is an indication of possibly serious/dangerous mental instabilty!?do you think that anger is just the positive expression of an underlying fear!?the most basic of which is to be unneeded/unwanted/left behind/uncared for!? heeh!!....just askn...

I never thought about 'anger and the Internet 'in this context, but it does seem to make sense when applied to some of the 'arguments' one can see/read in threads and posts in most any forum/MB you care to look at.
IRL I would bet you are right on the money. I think it maybe called
abandonment issues, sometimes my mutt fred gets them when I have been busy . He does stupid stuff he knows is wrong . like pissing on things of mine. Of course I have went off topic with the mention of fred but I done it with a slight grin and giggle thinking about your question and people on line.

Re: #@*!!! Anonymous anger rampant on Internet

Yep, it's a lot easier to vent your anger on the net. Remove the possibility of someone busting another in the mouth and even the biggest coward can grow a set that clanks.

There is one saying that I often see on the net that rings true. "Fighting online is like competing in the Special Olympics..... If you win.... that's great... give yourself a cookie... but you're still retarded."
