Subject: Why are people so mean and nasty now?

Written By: Dude111 on 11/23/15 at 7:35 am

Whenever I PM people on many sites they simply ignore me,dont bother replying back....

Are they that brainwashed they cant be social anymore? or are they a sheeple who is realising how bad the world has gotton and doesnt feel friendly anymore??

I AM NOT HAPPY WITH THIS WORLD BUT I AM NO SHEEP!!!!!!! -- I am wide awake!!!!!!! (But I do not treat people badly..... If someone PMs me,I reply.... Why take my anger out on them?? (Although I gotta admit being around SHEEPLE is not pleasant so I stay home mostly))

Maybe people didn't get the notification that you PMed them. Or maybe they didn't know what to say. There could be many reasons.


I have found that many people believe that it is ok to be mean & nasty on the internet. They don't really know the people they are being nasty to. The internet also causes a lot of misunderstandings and people take those very personal. I try very hard to be careful what I post. Even with being careful, I know I have p!ssed a lot of people off. That is just the nature of the beast.

Could be they don´t know you well enough. Like I didn´t really send private messages on here until three or four years after I knew people here.
Also, when you´re new on a site, it can take time for the group there to warm up to you, just for the fact that you´re new.

-Could be you´re angry about something, and people from the other side of their computers can misread this energy as you being angry at them, but it´s leftover angry energy from another situation.

There´s more but just ideas.

People have always been nasty to be honest.

I find it's the complete opposite. I think people are much nicer now, to me anyway. Everywhere I go I get a courteous hello, good morning/afternoon/night, how are you, have a good day.

Sometimes some people are shy, I mean extremely shy. It can come off snobbish, so they can be read as mean. But it's just they're very introverted, and slow to open up.

He used to be my friend many years ago and I dont know why he hates me now...... I PMed him and said merry christmas but he didnt reply and it makes me sad....


I dont think I have done ANYTHING to him;given him any reason not to wanna be my friend!

Happy New Year Dude.

I think people are mean and nastier now because they've just become desensitized. You see war on the tv all the time, dead bodies, etc. I mean just yesterday on my FB feed this woman posted a picture of this couple that got shot to death. I mean the lifeless bodies in the pool of blood. I unfriended her after that. But people I guess just aren't feeling and nice anymore. And really, like no one wants to be nice anymore. Once as a kid I had another kid tell me that I was "too happy".
And it's just getting worse and worse. I mean look at the rise in shootings and killings and things like that. It is an absolute hot mess out there in the world. I know I'm desensitized there's lots of things I KNOW hell well bother other folks but has no affect me at all. But I still make an effort to be nice.
