I have come across a chatroom and it seems that the room have a friendly atmosphere. I have joined in and send a message which says " Just dropping by to say hi!". The response? "hi and bye...hahahaha!!!"; "you have already dropped the hi...hahahaha no more!!!"; non stop laugh and other similar remarks. I was speechless...What's wrong with these people? I was just greeting them in a manner I thought I was being courteous and that's the kind of courtesy i will receive? Well, maybe i was just being silly or over sensitive during those times but it really made my day! I just said thanks and log-out. What about you, ever been in the same shoes? How did you feel? What did you do after that?

Always remember that these people are also the ones who have no social life outside the internet. They could be nerds or those people who cant express themselves fully so they tend to be harsh when they are their internet alter egos.

It has to do with hypersensitivity to SPAM. It also has to do with an arrogance that certain people have when it comes to the internet. Fortunately the Internet is big enough for all types. Most importantly, when I feel offend, most times I just kick the dirt from my heels. Have great day. Enjoy today for it will never come this way again.

I think you will find rude people everywhere even in a chat room. They don't agree with anyone on anything and that is just how they are. I have even found a few rude comments on some discussions I have commented on and discussions that I have started. But you should expect that from anyone; no matter where you are.

you're right.. everyone is entitled to their own opinion moods included. lol. we should not expect that everyone share the same feelings. although it would be much better if they do it in a nicer way. or maybe just ignore. For me, silence means, i don't want to talk. Except for my page, im just away for too long (LOL). Better late than never. Thanks for sharing

That's why I only chat with my real life friends LOL Seriously, they are just a bunch of people who have no life. Ignore them, they don't worth your attention and time.

My opinion is that maybe they are rude cause the don't have to see you. Or maybe they are like that all the time.

Yes you are right.. They sometimes do it also just for the sake of being rude.

think i would be inclined to try and make a witty comment then leave the room, they are just being rude, obviously they don't not like new people to join in.

You are going to find rude people everywhere. When I find one, I just ignore the person, and move on. If they really insult me, or violate a terms of service agreement on a website I'll report them, otherwise, I'll just ignore them.

It really pains me to say this, being a human myself, but humans are a disgustingly unsocialable animal. It's in our nature to be violent, alienating and quite simply rude. Evolution needed us to be, or we wouldn't have survived to be the dominant species of our planet. However, genes express themselves depending on their environment. It's the same with our mentality. Long story short, we've grown up around civilization (some in less civilised part of the world than others) and we learn to adapt to be friendly, to be socialable. It's survival instinct. If you're a nice guy, you won't get beaten up in the playground. The internet messed it up. It provided nigh unlimited anonymity. With it, and with almost no fear of repercussions, we regress and become aggressive again. Or at least we can. Fortunately, thanks to the power of the subconscious most of us maintain the programming of being polite and courteous. But it seems more and more people are breaking the program and becoming unbearably rude. Most people disagree with me when I say humans, naturally, are not socialable but it's true. If you were to lock yourself away in isolation from your friends for a month or two and then try and socialise again. Chances are, you won't know what to do. Sorry about the long rant, but I felt I had to say all of that, get my point across.

It's okey, you are right. The environment help molds mankind. If you say if a person were isolated for that long then he would be a different person if he is sociable.

There is too much no manners kids broke into chatroom recently, and most of them just do anything they want, insult you, swearing, spamming. If you report them, they will kick out by the system, but will just go to other chatroom.

that is because our moral values has declined so badly. some readers might not agree with this but this is the truth. people think it's 'cool' to pass on such remarks. what i v learnt is that that dont expect courtesy from the others and it wont pinch u that much. gone are the days when people greeted others with a smile. u ll just have to get used to this and ignore such ppl.

I think the problem is a dwindling population of polite and courteous people. I think it depends of the site that the chat room was on too. Most teenagers and young adults would rather make fun of someone than take the risk that they are genuine and that the other person will make fun of them. It is a twisted thought process but I believe it to be true. With less and less polite people, others just assume that you are other average person who will be rude and ignorant just like them. In chat rooms, when people make rude comments, I just try to brush them off because I know that they would never have the nerve to say things like that to someone's face. They are only acting that way because their identity is protected and chances are that you live no where near them. Next time someone makes a rude remark, just kill them with kindness. Hope this helps!

It helps....Kindness is a great armor. As human being, our emotions have different tunes. We get to react overboard on things that might be just simply a misunderstanding (words coming across to them)and sometimes there are just people who are like that. We cannot please everybody and make friends with everyone even if we want it to. As my friend always says, we are only human.

Because it is human nature to be this way. Human beings are one of the only (besides chimps and other simian cousins) species that pray on themselves and on others within the species. We are classified as mammals but really we act like viruses. Multiplying, destroying, using up resources and moving on when nothing is left to repeat the cycle in another environment. We are inclined psychologically and biologically to be a predator, it is in our nature to be such.

Thank you...but it is just so sad that human beings are like that though i know that nobody's perfect. It is something that we have to face everyday the reality of life.
