[quote="Gunslinger808"]Heck, I've always found it easiest to post as if I was speaking to those I'm addressing in person.
The internut does create a disrespectfull breed sometimes.[/quote]
With little to no fear of recrimination, the impersonal nature of these message boards can bring out the worst in some.
But...
Why be hurtfull or an asshole just for its own sake? Some feel that they're being funny, but I must be missing the humour.

The same reason people pull the legs off spiders and slash people's tires for no reason: it makes them feel important and superior. Online, people aren't forced to be respectful because they lack the threat of an ass-beating, which is all that keeps certain kinds of people respectful in the first place.
