this type of behavior just proves how powerful the human stare can be
The fact is, its easy to 'act yourself' online because walking away carries no "tingly sensation" in the back of your neck.
But alot of it might, also, have to do with the fact that text carries different tone than words. The tone in which you read text is purely dictated
by your current mood.
if you're angry and read a retort to a rant that doesn't favor your opinion, you may take it as a flame, since you're already in a bad mood (just
as an example)
Then again - there's also the 14 year old punks who get all excited because they think they're cool because they're using "big boy" words and
being "Censored" as a result.
Luckily there's a ban feature.
Also an ignore feature
Next time someone starts that crap with you - send them a U2U being just as polite as possible. Claim that you respect their opinion, yadda yadda
basically play dumb to the fact that they're just trying to get under your skin
9 times out of 10 it shuts them right up
and the 1 time it doesnt, they make complete idiots of themselves and usually do something to get banned
