Why are people so aggressive and rude on the internet?


On youtube, forums and many social sites people leave comments in a quite aggressive tone. Why do people behave in a different way on the internet than in real life ? Or are the people who leave rude comments in real life rude as well ?

    True lying is too complicated. With dating sites I can imagine that people are not sure about themselves and fall into the trap of describing themselves as superman/woman including a top model picture.

    Yes there's always a reason why people behave the way they do. You can debate surely and enthusiastically but the scolding and trolling is sometimes completely rude without reason

    The internet has a great amount of freedom of speech and yes this is the negative counterpart of it.
