It's because they never get laid.........

You seriously made a thread just because I corrected you about your ignorance on a topic? I wasn't being rude.

I think this is a great community. I don't know what you encountered that made you criticize the people here.

Or this is just a troll thread?

it's the internet. that's the short answer. the long answer would be a psycho-sociological analyzes of the nerd world and the empowering consequences of such members acquiring access to these types of forums

Being behind the keyboard incites bravery which would otherwise never be exhibited in an individual. That is what I hate about the majority of people on the internet.

Because you get what you give, so if you're aggressive you're gonna annoy the users who disagree with you and then the snark comes out.

Just chill out, remember not to push on people and you'll find that most users on here are actually quite nice.

Except in the Battles forums, they'll just rip your head off with their teeth because that section is hardcore.

Maybe just because there are people on here. There's usually a few rude people anywhere you go.

People are not as polite on the internet as they are in person. However here on Comic Vine people are far nicer than they are on most of the other sites I've visited.

@lady_liberty:

I tend to agree. but every once in a while some people on here just get angry because you disagree with them and they attack you

#15 Posted by longbowhunter (7082 posts) - - Show Bio

I really get along with most everyone on the site. You think it's bad here go checkout Comicbookmovie.com. That site is a hellhole of negativity and rudeness.

C'est la vie, no point making a thread about it. In any community, you're always going to find individuals that you disagree with, or that rub off in a bad way.

It's a funny hellhole of negativity and rudeness to read though. xD

People get heated, it happens. Heck I've seen you get pretty rude and angry before, especially with certain recent law related stuff.
Sure you apologized after for loosing your cool, but that's the thing, you lost your cool and you're not the only who does that.

The best defense against what you feel is rudeness or anger is to be as calm and polite as possible. Remember that you're talking to another person who could be having a very bad day for all you know, so don't give them more reasons to be mad.

I have two points on the matter to make:

1. Comicvine does, for the most part, have a very mature community. The older/more knowledgeable guys will nearly always correct a newbie on something in the most polite manner, and the mods are understanding seem to only hand out warnings or bans in extreme cases. In the event that a viner is picked on, or someone is being out of line, the community will be there to help them out or put the guy in his place.

2. However, because of this very friendly, mature atmosphere on the vine, there is one slight gripe I have. There seems to be a very fine line between being rude/immature or attacking someone, and simply calling them out on something. A line that really isn't very clear at all. You could say something that you think is really harmless, and all you're doing is replying to someone in the same manner in which they posted, intending only to clear something they're saying up, and out of nowhere you'll get the typical reactions "you're being immature" or "you're starting an argument", "you're just as bad as him" and especially "there was no need in that".

It just leaves me there like "really? You're that sensitive?"

So yeah, it's best to avoid any kind of conflict whatsoever. Even stating a difference in opinion can incite some kind of feud between you and another user.

@sog7dc: I assure you I'm just as big an asshole in real life as I am on here, I know there is literally no way to prove that so I completely understand if you don't believe me.

I've always found the comicvine community to be mostly pretty laid back and easygoing, with a couple exceptions that spring up now and then. However, the community has a very low tolerance for ignorance, and tend to deal with it some pretty aggressive ways, I've noticed.

@sog7dc: I know I just felt the need to point it out, I have a long standing family reputation to uphold. I'm an 80th generation prick.

It's hard to convey tone through text so some people aren't being rude or mean on purpose.

Then you have your small group that are just colossal A Holes.

LOL, Comicbookmovie.com is terrible. Constant arguments and flame wars.

Lol it's always a good read though!

#32 Posted by BiteMe-Fanboy (7837 posts) - - Show Bio

Because Comic Vine is their life and they only feel important in life when they are on the Vine being dicks to people.

Basically, they are losers.

Ha.

@veshark: I can't do it anymore. I've been a member on that site for years but can't tell you the last time I logged in. Anytime a comic is previewed its, "What is this crap, my 6 year old niece can draw better than this". I don't know if there is any comic fans on that site. It seems like a grouping of children with anger management issues. A real cesspool of trolls.

If you have an issue with someone take it in PM. Making a thread about people being rude isn't going to help a situation. People get angry. It's a part of life. This thread isn't going to do anything positive and is a perfect grounds to make situations worse.
