Are people less polite in discussions on the internet?


I've heard many people say arguments on the internet are fruitless and demoralizing, and many 'experts' claim that the internet allows us to be rude without the consequences that would follow in face-to-face discussions. Is this true? Are people more rude and aggressive online? Why would that be? Or are they less rude? Roughly the same? Maybe people are just more sensitive about their opinions on the internet? Answer as you like.
