    males can carry on crossing their legs and growing long hair and being femimine and jews christians and muslims can carry on without a god to save them but all of these people will have to follow the laws of the world Pagan religions of the world believe all living things have a God and if you beleive in them you'll go to Heaven and if you don't you'll be tortured in Hell.

    Some people are just idiots. They probably had a bad upbringing. They're also cowards - they can hide behind the safety of a screen and type whatever. Note that nearly all of them don't have their real photo online - which says *what* about *them*?

    Because the internet is people's outlet for frustration. Moreover, you can easily be anonymous on the internet, which means that you can irresponsibly say a lot of things that hurt others to vent their frustration.

    If you don't need to look at the other peoples eyes you can forget their humanity.

  • Some of us aren't.  They are usually hurting from within and need to vent.  Try not to take it personally and, be thankful.  :D

    Anonymity.  No use getting upset over something a random stranger posts on the internet.

    Internet is a depersonalizing medium--letters on a page, for example ;-)

    Seeing the hurt feelings or other responses in person does much to change the quotient of meanness.  Similar to difficulties in shooting the enemy "close up" vs bombing them from miles up and away, etc.

    You can say a lot knowing the person you're telling it to has no means to track you down. It only proves the world is full of irresponsible ignorant boorish cowards.
