    Why do people on the Internet make harsh statements period?

    It all goes back to the bullying theory - people on the Internet especially feel they can say or do whatever they want and "hide" - it is classic bullying behavior.

    It is sad but there is always a reason for it!  Like self loathing or insecurity or.....

    A lot of it is due to the fact that most users are young in age and immature.  But I believe the biggest reason has to do with the anonymity people have.  They can hide behind a weird screen name and they do not have to stand behind what they type.

    I think that because they do not have to look the person in the eye and give their opinion--they tend to really get nasty because there is no accountability.  People tend to be very brave and very generous with their opinions where there is no repercussions.

    People feel anonymous on the Internet, so some of them feel like they can say whatever they want because others won't know it's them and there won't be any consequences. Most of the people that make those comments online would probably never say such things to another person in the same room because they wouldn't have a fake identity to hide behind.

    Immaturity and poor up bringing. Children aren't being raised on principles of respect anymore like it use to be. I was raised in a strict yes ma'am no ma'am (or sir) environment. No deviations. 22 years old, and I'm still doing it. Also, the internet is like that glass wall between you and that dude you're identifying as the killer at a police station. You'll talk all the shit you want...as long as that glass is there.

    If you are keen to notice such comments are only seen in those video that tend to be hoaxes for people to view them.

    Maybe they want to be noticed or maybe they don't have any ethics.

    No consequences, or at least not any significant ones.

    That's the ugly part of how internet has made it so easy for some people to blast their morose ways and outlook on things. So much for freedom of speech and expression. But anyway, I think with the redesign of YouTube commenting on videos has become somewhat better with the inclusion of video comments compared to the earlier uglier and usually morose text comments. It's like if you cant completely ignore 'em atleast there are ways to make it look somewhat better. smile
