    I'm always disappointed when people act badly because I always expect the best from them... I feel this is a character flaw in a way

    Yes it is. There are many types of inner bitches too:
    1. The passive aggressive inner bitch.
    2. The I hate different people inner bitch.
    3. The I'm bored so I must troll inner bitch.
    4. The I must show off my superiority inner bitch.
    5. The I must show off my manlyness inner bitch.

    And so on.

    But the forum isn't really that anonymous, just look on youtube. There isn't one youtube page where some guy isn't arguing with some other guy saying nasty things, I find it interesting that most people argue on youtube. There's a newspaper here in Romania, and it has this website where you can post comments on the newspaper's articles, and they love arguing and saying nasty shit to each other ALL the time.

    I used go on that newspaper's website and tell them to go fuck themselves, because they write a ton of stupid shit, propaganda, and some people actually believe it.

    80% of the comments contains swearing which is hillarious.
    And that's pretty much all over the internet.

    If I act like an asshole, i am usually venting.
    What? 5 people killed themselves??!! And all the evidence was there on the computers.......

    What kind of sick demented guy convinces people to kill themselves knowing that it will not be long till he will get arrested. Who knows what fucked up family he grew up in.

    You don't have negative people around you now, do you?

    It is interesting how people seem to be more antagonistic on forums. Some of it is people are drawn to negativity and so a single comment draws a crowd. That is why trolling is a problem on a forum but not so much real life. There is no physical space between people to control on a forum. Also, some people don't have effective filters from their brains to their mouths.

    Some people mistake it for strength when the real strength in this kind of environment is to be strong in what you want to say and considerate. Any clown can be a badass on the net.

    Yes, Elementary through Middle School was fun for me too.

    See I assume the worst in preparation for that inevitable day.
