  • I don't know, I've noticed that the older they get they typically get more cynical. They also believe that 18+ think they are incredibly wise and forget they're just another person with a computer.

    • Can confirm, I am 19 and it is a rare day I have a positive outlook on anything. Also the whole anonymity thing makes people get full of themselves. You don't know some of those people with computers may be experts on what there griping about and I don't know either. You could be a genius for all I know. We all seem to forget that possibility online though.

    • Yeah, exactly. This is what bothers me

    • Sure they could be, but some just want to feel powerful and be a jerk just because.

    • Well I will say you aren't a dumb teen in the slightest.

    • Thanks, lol.
      And you are a nice adult :)

  • 1. It's the internet so of course there are going to be some users who are rude, hateful, or judgmental because they are online and don't really have to face any consequences for their actions.
    2. Even in real life, some people are just assholes. That's just the personality of some people, unfortunately.

    • Yeah, very true.
      I forgot to keep this in mind while browsing the Internet lol

  • I have met assholes on both sides to be honest (over 18) and (under 18).
    That's a personality trait any age or gender can have

    • Yeah, you're right but I'm talking about the older users who are assholes just because they are in a different age group

    • Well I disagree with how ur being treated. No one should mistreat u because of ur age

  • i've been an asshole since birth so i can't answer for the other adults -_-

    • It's already happening. i completely understand now, i don't want to grow up :(

  • Doesn't matter the age. There are annoying assholes all over the place. So it depends more on the person. I've seen some (under 18) They were seriously annoying and irritated me. I've also had some people (over 18) that did the same.

    There are plenty of kids on here who are just as bad - only poorer language skills so it looks silly - not so much insulting really. xD

  • Well to be fair in this question, what you've done by not only using profanity but also not specifying a certain situation or several that have inspired you to make this post, is actually come across as rather hostile.
    That said I think people are against other generations for many things
    at the root of human nature we are afraid of the younger generation growing too quickly and usurping us...
    But aside from that we also have pride to deal with.
    It can be hard to believe someone with what is assumed to be less life experience is actually more informed in what routes to take in certain situations.
    Sometimes there's also this stupid need to protect younger people, but sheltering them from the reality of the world is rather redundant, wouldn't you say?

    • For example, if I ask a question and need a serious answer, I'll get a sarcastic answer as if they are superior to me or something.

    • So people aren't* afraid...

    • Yeah, you're definitely right. I suppose we just have to ignore the ones who act on that feeling, under the disguise of a computer screen.

  • Maybe they aren't they just have a good understanding of the world and give it to you straight with no sugar coating. Some of them are ass holes though

  • I don't know why some of the 18+ users are assholes to the under 18 users. Being older doesn't automatically make you better and smarter than someone else

  • We only try to be realistic, and even then not all of us are jerks trying to ruin your day. Us people with more age just try to help you understand life so you will find yourself avoiding that situation rather than going into it yourself so. :).

    • Some of them are just dicks for no reason. Like they'll live a snide comment instead of a serious one and likely mention your age, for example.

  • make the most of being young because when u get get older u see everyones on anti depressant pills working dead end jobs trying the best to not end up homeless watching there parents becoming elderly or dying
