Why do people find it acceptable, and even exciting when they or someone else is rude to people?
It is really interesting to see it being accepted and encouraged. Do people feel "free" to act like jerks to other people because they are "behind a monitor" or "far away." Is it normally people who don't actually have the guts to stand up to other people in real life pretending to have the guts to stand up to people online?
I realize there is trolling and I've seen that before. But it appears that some people are actually glorifying rudeness.
I'm guessing a lot of it has to do with feeling like you don't fit in in real life. An ENFP who get to a forum like this can end up flirting an insane amount, because they have the ability and they are "allowed" because of the ENFP "understanding" here. I've noticed some types aren't expected to be able to reason, and some people play that up and don't make coherent points. Is that the same with types that can lean toward rude - they have to play nice so often in real life that they want an outlet for it here?
I guess the rude people surprise me less than the people who enjoy watching them being rude and encourage it. Is it just "lookit that person has balls OMG!!11"
