    I feel they are very sensitive at things and events that are not liked by them or not acceptable to them. In other words, they are very narrow minded and believe whatever they think to be good or true is correct and all other is nonsense. They are ill tempered, unable to control their feelings and thereby mentally sick or weak. So they burst upon the smallest things and resort in abusing without any hesitation and care for dignity.

    Not sure of the heart of the problem as it may be the heart that matters. I tend to make a best guess it is appearances. Magic is "an attempt to understand, experience and influence the world using rituals, "symbols", actions, gestures and 'language". Further we learn "Modern Western magicians generally state magic's primary purpose to be personal spiritual growth". Magic the illusion "is a performing art that entertains audiences by staging tricks or creating illusions of seemingly impossible[1] or supernatural[2] feats using natural means". (Quotes from Wikipedia)

    With the internet a great power is offered to partakers of social interactions with a common link - anonymity. Any person, a being of substance - body, consciousness, and soul (any personal definition is suitable) are an entity. That entity has a 'Self'.

    With symbolic interaction the 'Self' is given meaning as having two components or elements.The 'Me' or the inner-Self, which is the objective self - person of substance and is not seen interacts with the "I" or subjective self, which is what is seen. When an interaction occurs between those two 'Me' leads 'I' while 'I' is what socially interacts. Or, only the 'I' of self is what 'another' is presented socially.

    With anonymity upon internet interactions or the formation of an identity choices are made creating the anonymous identity, which may be viewed upon by the 'Self' as "now" more powerful. After all no other person in theory knows whom they are, which is a person of substance - consciousness, body, and soul.

    One of those choices is the possibility of the 'Me' becoming more social with interactions through 'I'. Or, simply more of the 'Me' is revealed under the cloak of anonymity. However, not all persons will cloak themselves or they may choose how much of the cloak or when to use the cloak. That cloak offers protection through a magical process. The Magic of illusion could be prominent as trickery using natural means - symbols, which are words of language and their meanings. And, those meanings may not be agreed upon to the extent of controversial.

    Many times this new 'Power' of anonymity is used for entertainment purposes both of 'Self' and too, socially. At times it simply is a baited hook tossed into the sea seeking personal gratification (A selfish act with some cause), dialogue, or is the 'magic' of the pursuit of personal growth (spiritual?) seeking learning. It could possibly be seeking like minded person's to befriend.

      So long a discussion but no result as it is vague in explanation. The question is why one hates or abuses another not "befriends"  It is the "self" or "selfishness" with no compassion, respect or consideration for others that makes to abuse opponents

    It is a reflection of the outer world. Since cruelty in rampant in the real world, why should everybody suddenly become kind on the internet? Its the same people. And the core of cruelty is dissatisfaction with ones self, while projecting that dissatisfaction on others. If you are happy, is there a problem? No. So the other guy is unhappy and he wants to make others unhappy like him.

    Bored people, misery loves company, and there are just too many busy bodies in this world who make other peoples lives their business . THis is why I made a well thought out decision to not have a Facebook or any other social connection. I tried it and found that it is  many times painful journey .  Way too many problems on there, we have enough to deal with in the real. So many people I know complain, but continue to be involved, you can count me out.

      But wherever you may go, people won't leave you. They try to enjoy by making others feel embarrassed and inconvenient. They do something or other to disturb you. How long can you escape from them? So be indifferent and balanced and don't heed it.
