Are people's lack of common courtesy on the road mirrored online? Why?
Road rage has always been an issue, but what about reckless behavior online? Is it frustration that leads people to act, on the road and on the net, differently than in person? A low probability of consequence? Delusions of grandeur?
I love that you asked this! I've always thought people reveal their true selves when hidden behind screens. Whether it's the shield of a vehicle's window, or the anonymity of a YouTube comment, people are less afraid to be jerks when concealed.
So yes, I believe road rage and internet courtesy heavily reflect one's true personality.
Those without road rage are the ones perpetuating it; the one who understands this wisdom is a rare creature.
