Am I the only one who....

Thinks that most of the people on the other sites in the Lounge are douches? Just browsing through a few threads I was like... wtf? I just don't understand why some people go out of their way to be assholes over the internet, lol.

Ugh, sorry, just venting!

Re: Am I the only one who....

lol you can't judge someone by what they do or who they are on the internet. I know several people who are complete ass holes on teh interwebz but are really cool in person. It's a lot easier to be opinionated on the internet, because what's going to happen? Someone will get butthurt, and since you don't know them it doesn't even matter. Personally, when dealing with other ass holes, if you just are knowledgeable and don't typ lyk dis, then no one will attack you.

I have no Fusion. I have a Miata.

I need a new sig.

But Kenneh is a prick for realz... LMAO

Yes there seems to be a rowdy bunch of Mazduh's that think their shit comes out roses.... LOL But as said above, what are the repercussions of web actions? Even a Wolowitz (Big Bang Theory) can act like the Terminator.

Nice!

The way I act in here is how I act in person (for the most part). Sarcastic and sometimes crude, but never intentionally trying to belittle someone.

I admire your Ford, but you're jealous of my Mercury.

Besides, everyone knows Fusions are better than the Mazda 3 :lmao:

But ya, people are dicks and assholes online because they know they can get away with it. I bet you, dollars to donuts, that those little shits flaming people and calling EVERYTHING gay because they disagree with it, and that because YOU don't share their opinion that you too, must be gay, would get the shit kicked out of them in real life and wouldn't be able to backup their claims.

For example, in the local paper, when they opened up articles to comments, it was all anonymous. You could put whatever username and email you wanted in to your message and it'd get posted. The vulgar, racist, assholistic, and downright moronic comments that got posted was staggering! Then they switched it so that you HAD to link your Facebook profile before you could post. That pissed off a lot of people (I just locked my profile down a bit more). The really stupid ones just stopped altogether, but the slightly smarter ones created false FB accounts. It helped a bit. And with further changes, and improved moderation the comments section has gotten cleaner.

I've found that FFC is pretty good at moderating itself. The forum mods are really active (and some even TALK to you too!). Some of the threads that get started with the obvious goal of trolling or starting a fight, get trolled in to oblivion and then shut down once everyone's had their fun.

I find the other thing is maturity. If you're a mature individual IRL, then your online persona will reflect that for the most part. But if you're an asshole prick IRL, or even if you're the kind of kid that gets teased, made fun off and is the butt of jokes, you end up lashing out online, because you're "protected" by your screen, and as we all know, you can create an entirely different personality online.

For example, IRL my name is Matt, I'm a PC admin, I have a few friends on the other side of the country and I'm a big geek. But online, I'm "SUPER TRAINASS!" SMITER OF STUPID e-Peoples (or a Starfleet captain while playing Star Trek Online). Generally my ePersona reflects my IRL-Persona, but in the past I've also been the obvious troll/asshole type of person.

And then there are people like Kenny...

-= It's just random chance that I hit the keyboard in such a way, that my posts make sense! =-

Re: Am I the only one who....

95% of the time I agree with all of the douches.. in those same situations I think the exact same way I'm just nicer about it, and can hold off being a dick.. most of the time

I have no Fusion. I have a Miata.
