  • Because maybe you don't know what you're talking about as that seems to be a large issue on this site in general just as much as the arrogance. A lot of people are wrong and get mad when someone disagrees with them or, honestly, are really talking out of their ass sometimes.

      Eh, it is what it is. But I'd like to point out that only a person who is insecure in what they are saying would feel the need to ask a question like this.

  • If I say that (which I do) then it's a combination of a couple of things. First of all, if I say it it's because it's true. It's about a topic that they very obviously really don't know what they are talking about. But if I actually say it, it means I have no patience with them. It means that I see them as someone who will not listen to anything I say, and it's not worth my time to mess with them. So I'm just cutting them off.

    So basically it's not just that they don't know what they are talking about. It's because I view THEM as having a closed mind, not the other way around. It's just a way of cutting off a lost cause.

  • It mostly depends on how they perceive the tone of the questions/comments. And since we are virtual here, and can't see the expressions and tone of the other, our perception is always influenced by our state of soul.

    If we're feeling down, and come on the internet, we may perceive a sentence different than if we were all happy. And if we're feeling down, we'll bring our negativity in, possibly some anger, and some more rude comments. And if they see something that we think is stupid, they probably won't sugar coat it.

    Also, some people are just trolling and goofing around to piss someone off on purpose.. the problem is when the other doesn't sense that it's on purpose, and tries to take everything seriously.

    (I've done all the above...)

    Then you have the really entitled arrogant people.. regardless of gender
    To those, you either ignore, or get into arguments that only bring negativity, and change nobody's minds. And then we get with a slightly less happy state of mind after those discussions.

  • Well, yes you are right. There are many people here who are arrogant, judgmental and not only that there are many people here who don't even have the basic sense of understanding and behavior and I have come across people like that and I just outright ignore them.

    Why they are arrogant/Judgemental? that is difficult to say, it can be any reason. May be they just want to show themselves as superior or they like putting people down.

  • I think maybe some people just like to argue and sling "mud" just to see where it'd splatter without any real concept of the topic being discussed and even when you try to open up a dialogue with them, they much prefer to take the role of "Devil's Advocate" then admit their point of view is wrong, but you know, skip that even. I believe are just narrow minded and if you challenge their belief even a little bit they are ready to fight. Nobody seems to want to be adventurous or explore the possibility that there's another view point or perception. I'm all for standing by one's convictions, but when you offer up an opinion, at least be reading to consider all the view points, instead of just being dogmatic in your stands and single minded point of view. That's my bottom line.

  • I have always thought the internet depersonalises interaction - Stuff descends into argument so fast on all sides, you say and do stuff you normally don't do in a real life conversation - You can seem on the attack as a response to a loaded question - There are people I know I disagree with on here but they are decent so I just go "We will never change each other's mind so agree to disagree" - I will give a snarky response to a snarky question.
    In regards to your poll, it is a complex but I would call it the "I am right" syndrome , you probably start of willing to discourse but you become embattled so your position is ingrained and then a trigger word appears ELECTION - "Charge..."

  • People in general are like that. I noticed that a lot of gagers dismiss the users under 18, but like you said we should keep an open mind. You dont know where a good opinion might come from. If you dont listen, you'll miss it.

  • Some of these "arrogant people on GaG", don't how to communicate without tact.

    What sucks for them, is that the person he/she is trying to talk to, will just end up being ignored and dismissed... so these people shouldn't even bother speaking at all.

  • You needed to add that the anonymity of the internet has a certain quality to it as well. Hence people trolling / cat fishing (personally, I don't see the point). Me thinks you need to hide your goat better (as in "don't let people get your goat).

  • Aside from their spparent sexual frustration (no'one wants them probably) they're simply just that: arrogant !

    With such inept social skills they probably don't have mu h going on in their lives so they use the internet to rant + rave about things, more than likely it's the only way they can vent their frustrations.

    It's a shame they can't all be auto-dropped into a "Ranters + Venters" website and locked away !

  • People, in general, like to look at things through a very narrow looking-glass. Preferring to see things that fall into only their own little reality versus putting in the time and effort to realize that there are not only other ways to do the same thing, but often, even better ways.

    That applies especially to people online. People who flock to websites like GaG- 'help' forums. Also known as places where the blind lead the blind.

  • Some people are just that way because it's the internet. They can (for the most part) say and do what they please, with little to no repercussions.

    Likely they don't have the guts or ability to act this way in public, which is why they do it on here.

  • Other. I am guessing a lot of people don't want to be wrong. Also, if you are online and anonymous , you could say anything without suffering any blowback or consequences. So in real life, they may need to be diplomatic or own the asshole title. But online, they can do whatever. I think they don't want to be wrong and they aren't nice people. There aren't that many nice or good people in the world.
