Why some people answer questions in offensive way?
Or they assume that person who asks a question doesnt know the answer?
Answering the question in an offensive way is a matter of opinion that shows aggression up to some extend.
What I personally believe is, their psychological status which tends them to follow in a way that people notice them no matter its good enough or not. They feel superior at times by suppressing others with abusive and offensive manners.
Some answers are offensive because the person is just plain mean. Not that there are too many like that here, (I hope).
The other thing I have noticed is that people read too much into what's been written. Words on a computer screen don't have the luxury of body language, which helps us enormously in "reading" the fuller meaning of what is being said.
Basically, its a misunderstanding, (often, but not always)
I think it depends on the question... What's that saying... "Ask a stupid question, get a stupid answer." Substitute stupid for any other adjective you can think of.
As any celebrity publicist or successful troll will tell you, controversy sells. A lot of these questions from people who couch a religious question in such a stilted way that it is no longer a question but an insult to any one that doesn't agree with the questioner's personal beliefs 100%.
These self proclaimed 'puritians' think that they are morally superior, more spiritual and nobler are merely exposing thier intolerance towards diversity in very personal matters of the spirit.
Not sure Why they do it. But maybe it depends on the way the Person that asked the question states it !
Well it depends on two things.
1. Question: is they question offensive or hurting
2. People's temperament: people come from different backgrounds and experience different things that shaped their character. So if the person is violent, angry or offensive, then expect an offensive answer or question.
1) they can't help it and are offensive most of the time.
2) because they know they will start a controversy, and that's always fun...
they try to hide their lack of confidence with a misplaced attitude...
Some people are annoyed if they find the question to be silly or stupid. It is their personality defect. They may be nice people otherwise. There are others to whom offending others is a way of life. they will need some harsh lessons in life if they have to reform themselves.
Some people are abusive.
Some others are merly short to the point, curt in their replies, cut and dry, and are viewed , by the more sensitive as being abravise or offensive.
I am among those who are cut and dry.......staight to the point ....though I am not without sensitivities.
Without being privy to the details, I can not say who is being what.
For instance.....WHY would you ask a question that you already know the answer to? Are you an attorney? Whose energies do you wish to test? I have little patience for those inquires, perferring to assist those who do not know...........
Wait what you're trying to say is ("Or they assume that person who asks a question doesnt know the answer?" ) you already know the answer to your questions,so why answer them aggressively? if that's the case,maybe you deserve it. Why ask questions you already know?
Lack of intelligence. So their only weapon to use when they answer is their rudeness.
