Why are people so rude on the Internet?

It bugs me. A LOT. I hate the way people just belt out mean things like there's no tomorrow. Why?

Report as

Alot of people live double lives on the Internet and in real life they portray a different character usually trying to be someone cooler then they see themselves they find this cool however we both know it is nothing but the exact opposite I have noticed this as well

I think the reason why people are so rude on the internet is because they don't at times know who they are talking to so they don't care. Another reason is that they think they can get away with it.

Because they will never be responsible for their actions as they can be unidentifiable.

Because they can, in real life they'd have to confront you and deal with you after they say something stupid, on the internet they can get away with it.

it is all about feeling invisible.


if you feel "its just the internet, i dont care," when someone is rude to you, would you also be rude?
if you got a chance to show how bitter you are (online) at the world for being mistreated (real life), would you?
if you only had to leave the computer to escape your abusers, would you?

most cyber-bullies justify themselves by asking those questions

Because it's easier to be mean and/or rude when you can't see the person's face (or expressions). And you can find a way that it will never can found who you actually are.

Because they are trying to be someone they are not . Knowing the other people don't kno who he/she is they wouldnt care if he/ she acts mean to the other. Also if some is being mean to a stranger , that's because he/she doesn't kno who he is and how he (or she ;) ) is going to be affected :P you get the point

sme do it becaus they think thts what it tkes to fit in
sme do it becaus they think its funy
sme do it becaus their friends do it
sme do it becaus thats what theyre tawt at home
sme do it becaus they get dared to
sme do it just becaus it seems right
sme do it just to do it
sme do it on purpose
sme do it just TO hurt somebody
sme do it JUST TOsee them cry
sme do it 4publicity
but at the end of the day.. we still got kids in this world taking they life at 10/11yearsold up to 16/17yearsold
its ridiculous and trifling and just nasty to see this crap happening at these schools.
then the teachers dont do nothing
and if they having a real good day they join in to. in 2012 it still seems like LittleRock9 is going on.
except now it doesnt matter the race
this kinda crap pisses me off and idc if ik the person or dont like 'em or just now meeting them..

For the most part they do it because they can hide there identity which goes to show you what big cowards they are. So just no that we are walking among foolish people who throw there rocks and hide there hands. This is the reason for me showing my true identity so that all may see that I have nothing to hide, just being open and honest with every that comes in contact with me.

People are rude sometimes because usually its a stranger, they dont care what you think of them and its a lot easier to be mean or whatever to someone digitaly than in person

It is because the person can be anonymous. This way they don't feel the social constraints of someone judging them for their actions. Honestly, the internet is the best social experiment there is because you get to see what people are really like on the inside, away from the facade they put on for others.
