  • GaG is fairly vanilla relative to other web forums. You get a decent crop of racists, sexists, and lewd creeps lurking in the shadows, but beyond that it can't compare to more populated sites like Reddit.

    With Reddit you get trolling that is intellectually spurious because of the heavy moderating attempting to keep the peace. Being smart and having an opinion makes you a target. That's okay, if you're equipped to defend yourself.

    The trolls here are stupid and seem to not even try to be clever. How can one honor their sad attempts at trolling? Impossible.

    But if you're looking for a general answer, people are more open on the internet.

  • I can think of a few reasons.

    1) They don't have a whole lot of confidence or self-esteem, so rather than seek help, they spread the misery.

    2) They don't have enough confidence in what they believe to be able to defend it logically and clearly. They think it should be perfectly obvious to everyone that their way of thinking is the right, if not the only way. They can't conceive of someone not only disagreeing with them, but having valid reasons for it.

    3) We live in a VERY autonomous society. People want validation for things, but they don't get it, so then they react the only way that they know how to.

    4) Pretty obvious, but anonymity. They don't have to answer for what they've said. No one on the forum knows someone's real name and no one outside the forum cares (I use "forum" generically because people being rude is rampant all over the internet, not just on GAG).

    Hiding behind an avatar gives you the ultimate power of anonymity and people just feel free to throw shit at each other.

  • It's not the greatest forum/website ever I am part of a few that are far better, but this isn't the worse place I've been to and is actually pretty decent compared to the vast majority of places you could go to on the internet.

    • But you know that's just life working alone side tons of different people at my job I can tell you some people are nice, some people lose their temper quite easily and some of just plain demented/rude. I've even had one women try to go after my job and get fired just because she didn't read the painfully obvious sign posted on our front door saying we were only open to so and so time that day.

  • There are some decent people here, but there's also as much rude people and perverted as some of the nice ones.

    • i just mean so many people are passive aggressive and don't just say their opinions they shove them down everyone's throat

    • everybody is kind of entitled to his own opinion. it´s very common to assume to have the superior intelligence in a conversation (especially the case for formally bad educated or unintelligent people). therefore most people don´t care to learn and understand the other persons opinion... why would they, if they assume theirs is the "better" one.

  • Hiding behind the anonymity gives a lot of boldness to people, making them blunt and rude. I too would probably never had said some of the things in reality that i have said on internet.
    But again, it's not such a bad thing. But in limit.

    As Mark Twain said : 'Too much of anything is bad, but too much good whiskey is barely enough.'

  • no, there are many cool persons here basically.
    Why are there so many rude people on GAG?
    if you think the person are rude because they are saying you are against your thoughts then all of us are rude but if you ignore what you don't like then you will the peace :-)

    • no i just mean so many people are passive aggressive and don't just say their opinions they shove them down everyone's throat

    • yes, i have observed that some people are so harsh in giving opinion. i don't why they can't give a opinion in a cool way. i think better to leave them alone then you can live happy :-)
      don't be a bad person with bad person because it will keep you in bad place and sometimes silence make peace and some times peace make silence.

    • i hope it helps you :-)

  • Because there's a lot of thick prats on here.

  • Well, there are rude people all over the internet, and in real life, unfortunately. Not everyone are going to be understanding, compassionate, or empathetic. It's something that should be expected, especially when someone comes online. You can't really control what other people say/do, all you can control is your reactions to it. Don't let those rude people get to you. Just ignore them or, if they're really harassing you or being offensive, you can block them or report their comments.

  • Because it's easier to be honest on the internet than it is in real life.
    You get people on here that are full of shit. E. g, ones that say they only care about personality.
    You get honest people. Like me 💁
    Then you get people that are just rude because it's funny, or just to get a reaction. This is kinda me too 😂😂
