    This is all pretty vague. I haven't noticed a lot of rude behavior, but then I don't hang out in the debate threads.

    Also sometimes NTs are accused of being rude because they don't couch their opinions in "this is just my opinion, and you have one, too, and that's cool, because I certainly wouldn't want to hurt your feelings, so feel free to ignore it, just my two cents."

    Also, sometimes there's a disconnect in senses of humor between types.

    I try not to be rude because I don't like mean people.

    However, I sometimes can't resist making fun of people when their opinions are just too ridiculous. I would certainly also do this in real life in an appropriate (casual) setting. I hope nobody is offended. But really, you can't say certain things and expect them not to get ridiculed. Really. Otherwise people might start believing those crazy things you're saying. :eek:

    I do understand the temptation to be more rude to people online, particularly if you're shy IRL, though it doesn't condone the behaviour.

    (not targeted at anyone as I don't have any "enemies" here...well hopefully nobody's harbouring a grudge anyway)

    Yes - and they're right, because they ARE free to act like jerks around here without any real life consequences. You seem to understand this, so there's no need to be angry about it or take everything as a personal insult. Luckily, there's one more thing to online environments: it is a lot easier to end a conversation than IRL.

    Baseless assumption. People who like to pretend that they're fags may very well be brave and direct IRL. Or perhaps not.

    Some people are much more blunt and assertive here regardless of type, because there are less restrictions in an anonymous medium. An INTJ will just as likely be fired as an ESFP if he tells his boss to fuck off, so if you presume that the former is more likely to be rude online, the explanation lies elsewhere.

    Most posters consider this 'thing' a playground, where you can share ideas without having to adhere to social norms otherwise crucial in face to face conversations. I don't think there's anything wrong with this, and it mustn't be taken seriously.

    This is what I was thinking. I think it is a cultural glorification of rudeness. It is everywhere in the media and people just parrot what they see. There are quite a few celebrities/commentators who's entire shtick is their rudeness, and it catapults them into fame and adoration of many. People sometimes think they are being counter-cultural, but it seems like more of a norm.

    The problem is we come online looking for sympathy. And if we give sympathy, we get sympathy. But it only works for those who are the same as us, as sympathy means to feel the same as.

    Whereas if we came online looking for empathy, we could find empathy by giving empathy. And fortunately empathy does not mean feeling the same as, so we can empathise with those who are quite different from us.

    However sympathy comes naturally while empathy must be practised and learnt.

    But as far as I know there is nowhere online where we can practise empathy.

    So we continue to limp along on sympathy.

    Alwar, could you also post a picture at the exact moment of orgasm?

    I'm sorry, was that rude?
