Why are we rude online?


Recently I read an article in the Wall Street Journal, Why We Are So Rude Online and I found it very interesting. Basically what the article is saying was "Anonymity is a powerful force. Hiding behind a fake screen name makes us feel invincible, as well as invisible." In general,we are perceived as being rude online.We tend to voice our opinions without havin much to worry about how others'feel since we don't have to deal with their facial expressions.In a facetoface conversation,we tend to gauge based on others'expressions and we d adjust accordingly.But facing the faceless computer,no way!
