Why is there so much hatred Online?

Recommended Posts

The Spook

There's so much hatred online because people can do what they want and say what they want from behind the safety of that controller/keyboard and not have to worry about someone smashing their face in. Thus why you will find most racist pieces of $#!+ on the internet.

Referendum's coming up mate, you know what's gonna happen

 

The sales of R* games and whisky alone is gonna keep this country afloat for the next wee while.

 

No more sharing the pot with others, London alone has got more people in it than Scotland has, only makes sense.

 

But cheers for trying to at least make a decent point .

 

You desended from an hairy arsehole by the sounds of it with that McGiver line. (I would excuse you if you were verbally trying to say my name and got it wrong, but this ain't the case here) - ya wee witty radge

Away back tae google or wiki yi go, al wait........

 

Tell yi what else happened after that, we invented the TV, the toilet, the phone, whisky, penicillin, insulin, radar, discovered electromagnetics. And most importantly invented this game.

History lesson 101 - America -

 

2. Slaughtered a whole peaceful race of people and stole there land

 

It's obviously that you should have a history lesson son. If you think that the ''native americans'' were a peaceful race of people you are out of you god damn mind. The native americans were as brutal as any other humans but they didn't have the weapons the brits and the colonists had.

U a dummy smh. If that was the case the native Americans would've slaughtered the first pilgrims that got off the boat. Its common knowledge the visitors started it bro.

Yea, after looking back a bit I do find it funny that a non-competitive game, such as GTAV has so many trolls and complete D-bags. Unfortunately,TheMckeever; You are going to find squeakers (annoying little kids) or complete racist assholes anywhere you go in an online game and sit in game chat. I recommend muting people you dislike, or going into party chat. Not all of us Americans are like that though. I've met my share of friendly people in-game.

Most of the people I've added to my friend list who play GTAO are American. I have no problem with Americans...

 

If anything..................it's actually British players who tend to be trolls. So it has been in my experience anyway.

Every country has their dickheads. Most of the time, I highly doubt it has to do with racism. It's more like people feel they can say anything without consequence, due to the fact they can be anonymous.

Just a FYI, in case you might be interested, Indians weren't the first to be on this land. In fact, they too migrated here, like every other person.

Most my mates are American too. Alot of trolls from alot of different places, only worse thing than trolls is the amount of kids that play this game, why should I have to take time out to pause it and mute them. Oh wait it's cos their mums are buying the shark cards and R* couldn't be happier with that.

So true mate, I've found so many sound and funny Americans just randomly it's amazing, got new mates from all over the place that I can phone for the cost of $10 in-game money. People like me moan alot about the 1% of the game R* screwed up on, forgetting about the 99% of the game that they got right.

Wow a vote. f*cking pussies. My American ancestors didn't vote or ask nicely they said f*ck you red coats we are going to take our country by force. How's that for a history lesson.

 

I do like how in your OP you complained about people making derogatory comments when a few sentences in you stereotype the people talking. Just because somebody makes racist comments it doesn't make them southern or inbred. There are idiots in the eastern, western, northern, and southern parts of the US.

 

I'm a white guy from the south and I dislike the idiot kids acting like they are tough online as much as you do but I don't assume they are southern inbreds because they use racial slurs I just assume they are idiots.

 

Besides the "history lesson" and southern inbred comments I agree with your OP.

Thoughtful post, now you just have to realize that unless you are in the top 1%, your ancestors fought the war in order to give elite englishmen local parliamentary control, under the guise of constitutional democracy.

I won't disagree that the elite have more privileges but the war for independence ran a little deeper than that.

 

The founding fathers also weren't Englishman. Some may have been of British decent but they were all born in America.

 

Just because things are different now doesn't mean the war was fought to only benefit the elite of the elite. Nice try though.

Voting is how things are done these days sadly. I got some mates from the south of the US, they've always got a good sense of humor but this one guy, it was the other Americans in session that said he sounded inbred. But I agree with you mate shouldn't have generalised the South in the comment.

^ you do realize that just because America turned out to be almost the exact thing they were fighting to get away from back in 1775 it doesn't mean they fought the war with that in mind.

 

You can believe what you want but I'm gonna stop derailing this fine Scottish gentleman's thread now.

 

The OP f*cked up me trying to stop the wall of quotes. Damn you.

I'm glad you guys sent the British homeward, now I got great TV shows to watch, amazing music to listen to and jeans to wear, kilt was getting a wee bit itchy.

 

I wish it was like that nowadays.

Because the hatred already exists within people...and they are being thrown into close proximity with those which they spent most of their lives either avoiding or abusing.
