    So this morning I logged on and started reading some forums...
    And man do I have to say, some people are FLAT OUT RUDE to strangers.. even though yes it is the internet etc. shouldn't everyone have a conscience of being polite?? Would you REALLY act that way in front of that person if he said,"_______________" and didn't agree with your posts...

    I don't get it.

    Yes, I really would. I've said shit to people's faces in real life and it's a fucking lie when people say "you're gonna get punched in the face if you say that to the wrong person." People don't usually get in physical confrontations and if they try to I just tell them I'll call the police.

    Members are different in person.

    I went to an RJ Meetup half expecting a Real Housewives of RJ reunion and everyone, including people who'd rip you a new asshole in a heartbeat online, was much more edited in person - civil, friendly, easy-breezy and non-confrontational.

    Talking trash gives people a false sense of superiority and importance. On the Interwebz, it's easier because they're hidden behind their computers. There's not much you can do about it. Those kinds of people are better left ignored.

    ...there ARE some people who simply don't care if you call the police or not. icon_neutral.gif

    I'M FINDING THAT GIVEN THE DISRESPECT PEOPLE SHOW ON LINE IS CROSSING OVER TO A LACK OF COMMON RESPECT ON THE STREET AND IN PERSON. WE LIVE IN A GLOBAL COMMUNITY...WE ARE ALL BROTHERS AND SISTERS...ON SOME LEVEL.....I TRY TO LIVE AN HONEST RESPECTFUL LIFE....TRUTH IS GOOD...AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO REMEMBER WHAT YOU SAID TO SOMEONE...BECAUSE TRUTH IS ALWAYS THE TRUTH.

    I'm not sure which posters you're talking about when you say these are all strangers. A lot of guys on here know each other in real life, or through private correspondence. Are you sure some of what you're reading isn't just banter?

    Like water on a ducks back, let it roll right off of you and don't think about it twice.

    Speaking of internet civility, one of the oldest rules is DON"T POST IN ALL CAPS. It's like shouting. And hard to read.

    You're taking the Internet too seriously.

    The action or stuff being said on the internet says more about that person rather than you. Like you're more like sensitive type that cares too much about what other people say about you. But at the same time you're sweet and caring...I'm guessing.

    Is there an etiquette rule regarding marquee use? Too much?

    I think it's fine with single sentences but could you imagine some of the longer posts done like this?
