    ? They seem very quick to take the piss out of you, always try to put you down. I mean, wtf?
    Yeah I've noticed it. It's annoying when people post completely irrelevant/useless posts or threads. Or insulting a particular group/person/thing that is in no way harming you. Sometimes people go on to a thread insult the op and say nothing else. Real classy

    Guess that's what happens when you give people the chance to be faceless. That's the problem, no accountability.

    It's the internet, people don't know you in RL so they have no vested interest in making you happy.

    Keyboard warriors and trolls are on pretty much every forum, TSR's hardly an exception. But sometimes it does get a bit much, I agree.

    It's easy to be brave behind a keyboard and even more so behind anonymity obviously.

    Many of them get their claws out online but in real life they're spineless wimps.

    If you ask strangers their opinions on things they are more likely to tell you the truth, the way it is. Most people deserve the cruelty because the nonsense they post is trivial.

    and people tend to give positive rep to posts that make fun of the OP.
    Do people really think about how to get rep in that much detail? :confused:

    Internet anonymity makes people a lot more abrasive.
    That is true.

    And I don't know if your sig is just meant as a joke. But that urban legend about someone shouting "10 points to Gryffindor!" isn't true. Confirmed by Emma herself.
