Subject: Non-music....Why,oh why, oh why?
Do we ( i.e. forums like this)get flamers? Since I've been here,( about 18 months or so) I've watched numerous people try to make a name for themselves or get attention, usually by pissing off, often in very personal terms, people they have never met.What's the pay off? They can't see facial expression, they can't be around when they spoil someone's day, they don't even have the power thing going on since they are ALWAYS outnumbered and ridiculed/reviled.What is going on for them?
I noticed Big Mick asked one to contact him personally to find out the very same thing...I have done so in the past and had one set of answers but as a generalisation,I don't understand and would really like to...what is the impetus to upsetting people you have never met, are never likely to meet and cannot control or affect?
