Yeah i'm not saying its all good,the way people react online,just more truthful,but yeah you have the ignoring going on too.
Additionally, there are people who just write and express certain positions for the sake of getting better "online reputation", be promoted to forum moderator, and similar things. |
And people who just write things they have read on a book, but aren't able to defend their arguments when they are challenged.
The typical example are people who answer to the topic with some cliché predefined phrases, but when the original author asks something regarding those phrases, they don't answer anymore (it has happened to me on this forum as well, right now) nor do they admit that they might be wrong.
What I'm saying is, both written and spoken, humans are humans.
Yeah,youre right. I'm not saying this doesnt happen.
Good social manners are useful sometimes and may create more results than straightforward insults |
Yeah,i agree that you dont always get good results online...i'm just saying all this is easier for me,since i am not good at talking. And if we were talking in person about all this,we wouldn't even have gotten this far because i would probably just be sitting there quiet just listening to everyone else LOL
