Reading some forums today, I have formulated a theory as to why there are so many jerks on forums. First, forums are for the enthusiast, which means that everyone thinks they know everything. Second, as forums are always adding new members, long-time members have answered the same questions many times over. Additionally, the people that post on forums are loud-mouths, posting everything they think, which may be offensive. This is quite constant through all forums, save the select few which are comprised of people who actually want to listen to one another, instead of tell the world how smart they are. Anyway, that’s all I have to say on the subject.
Oh, and by the way, the same goes for blog comments.
