    my thought are that these "social" networks are bringing out all the bottomfeeders hiding behind their anonymity. i'm thinking the tune might change if they were required to sign their names instead of Upyours.

    I think he's right, it's not really the social media. I do think you're right about the cowards and loonies of this world can hide anonymously behind their comments. But it's more that society is changing, the gap between the haves and have-nots is wider than ever and people are resentful of that fact. The hatred building up in present generations makes our vitriol at their age seem childish by comparison.

    hm... perhaps, but on the other hand, people are not accepting their fate as did those before us. some of us just don't know "our place" unlike my grandmother who always spoke respectfully to and about her "betters".

    Manners cost nothing. We should be mindful of others, whatever their backgrounds.

    Sometimes, I think it goes back to how a person's brought up and educated - although by no means does that include everyone. My children've been brought up to have manners and to be respectful. They haven't always followed what they've been taught or shown, but I trust they'll revert back to it as they get older. In fact, I don't really have much trouble on that score now, but if kids're allowed to get away with spouting off and being rude to people, they're going to carry on being that way, and then this can spread to interaction with anybody, whether on social media sites or in person.
