So i have been thinking about 'internet behaviour' issues. I just saw the comnets of a post on my blog on a controversial subject and the commets were controversial as well. So 2 guys were 'comment fighting' and it got ugly. I read all of it. For 2 days they were wishing each other death and diseases. Really nasty. And then... Surprise! They find out they are both working for the same company in the same building! all of a sudden they start to apologize and invite each other for lunch... That makes me wonder...is the fact of being anonymous breaks our values? Why when somehow you find out that the person u r talking to is a real person and not just a profil pic then you behave differently? Does internet ruines our manners and our ability to make a civilized discussion?

That is a good one to ponder. I wonder how they really felt inside that they turned out to work for the same company and in the same building. I bet if they did not find that out they would continue to yell and each other. I guess it depends to me what people are looking for on the internet. If it is learn new things then that is something else, but, if they are learning bad things then that is not good.

I have no idea why people would be rude to someone they don't even know. The person could he going through a really tough time and the cyber bullying could really affect them. Maybe I'm old school, but I do believe if you have nothing nice to say - rather say nothing.
