A while back, we had a thread which was intended for restrained venting and discussion of general online behaviour trends. Whilst successful, the thread met a bad end and was closed some months back. The general overall success of the thread has led to starting over. However, if this new attempt should spiral into the same problems as the previous one then it will be closed and the concept of such a thread abandoned. The thread itself is concerned with general trends and behaviour online you feel to be rude, petty, etc. It is NOT a place for you to launch personal attacks or air dirty laundry, be it related to this forum or elsewhere. === I'll start things off by mentioning people who don't actually read what you say and instead jump the gun on a bad interpretation. If they eventually understand these people often blame you for poor communication, even if the majority got what you were saying exactly. It's really poor behaviour to my mind, especially if you then can't even admit you were the one in the wrong. Mistakes are acceptable if you can at least have the maturity to admit when you've made one instead of pointing the finger.
