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.
PeterStip, When it comes to online dating a lot of people lie because they are in competition to grab attention. People have also been known to embellish their resumes when job hunting. One person's "white lie" is another person's "deal breaker".
scorpio, a tiny white lie is not really a prob. I was more thinking about all the negative and aggressive comments you see on the internet. Be it about football,religion or immigrants all in the name of anonymity.
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.
