Why Online Comments Are So Toxic | Alternet
Why did you post this, you stupid racist? <sic>
I did quite a bit of research when we were dealing with tie and this is consistent with what I learned.
I often comment about Internet persona versus the actual real life personality.
I assume these personae provide therapeutic treatment for some of their real life frustrations.

Ok I confess. Here I am heading to Walmart today.
Texan, you are far better than this. The last thing this forum needs is another moreluck.
Way to throw out another example, D.
It's the weekend! Everybody expects it and it gets delivered!
I thought Troll as a little man living under a bridge.
Now I know the little man has a wireless hookup and a laptop hid under the bridge with him....yikes.

[h=2]Obama Campaign Releases App That Allows You To Locate Home Of The Nearest Obamabot…[/h]
Curious how many Democrats live on your block? Just download the Obama campaign’s new mobile app.
The app, released last week, includes a Google map for canvassers that recognizes your current location and marks nearby Democratic households with small blue flags.
For each targeted address, the app displays the first name, age and gender of the voter or voters who live there: “Lori C., 58 F, Democrat.”
All this is public information, which campaigns have long given to volunteers. But you no longer have to schedule a visit to a field office and wait for a staffer to hand you a clipboard and a printed-out list of addresses.
With the Obama app, getting a glimpse of your neighbor’s political affiliation can take seconds.
While The New York Times dubbed the app “the science-fiction dream of political operatives,” some of the voters who appear in the app are less enthusiastic about it.
“I do think it’s something useful for them, but it’s also creepy,” said Lori Carena, 58, a long-time Brooklyn resident, when she was shown the app. “My neighbors across the street can know that I’m a Democrat. I’m not sure I like that.”
some caustic comments are retaliation, nothing more nothing less
Welcome back trp!
What would a chatroom be like in real life?
It's like the pun: If you think you hate them now wait till you get to know them.
