The real world has a pretty efficient system of justice: if 2 guys are having a disagreement and one says to the other
“I’ m gonna fuck your wife and make you watch” –that guy is gonna get punched.
When you’ve been attacked in print, the internet has no mechanism to reach through the thicket of wires, beeps 1s and 0s, to punch some asshole whose staying up late on his laptop ‘cause he just got back from the Charlie Daniel’s concert at the mall down by the swimming hole.
That’s because on the internet, there is virtually no fear of reprisal.
You see, Anonymity makes people aggressive. It’s been demonstrated time and again.
