Why are there so many rude people on GAG?
What Guys Said 28
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.4
Pessimistic people who hate life tend to be alone more often than average.
The Internet is a loner's best friend!3
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).1
Because this world full of ass holes. I called born to be an ass hole! Rude just thier way treat other people, I was wondering did they treat thierself that way too?1
Everyone feels that since its the interner it doesn't matter how they act like they won't get punished for it so they just wana mess around with people, mostly as anon1
Hiding behind an avatar gives you the ultimate power of anonymity and people just feel free to throw shit at each other.1
“Complaining does not work as a strategy. We all have finite time and energy. Any time we spend whining is unlikely to help us achieve our goals. And it won't make us happier.”

They are not working a lot0
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.0
There are some decent people here, but there's also as much rude people and perverted as some of the nice ones.0
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.'0

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.2
Because it's the Internet, they can hide behind a keyboard and type anything they want to or think is funny.0
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 😂😂0
I have seen so much worse.1
You know what they say, there are so many rude people everywhere.
Screw those rude people 😠, that's all I have to say.1
Because a lot of people are rude in general, why would the internet be any different lol2
there is no reason of why there's so many people who are rude. you just honestly learn to ignore the little bitter bastards and go on.0
I've had the opposite experience. Most people here are very kind.0
Their parents didn't raise them right0
Because there is a greater amount of stupid people.0
They have no life1
GAG attracts the angry, the delusional, the bitter and the ignorant.0
They have encountered so many bad things in their lives so they lash out here.1
