Im in dozens of groups, and many servers where people are nice. The problem isnt the people on the internet. The problem is that on forums, you see everyone persons posts. Thousands upon thousands of people. And out of those thousands of people, there are going to be a few dozens shitty people. And those are the people that stand out, becaus their posts shock people. People dont notice the nice, or normal posts, coz theyre so many, and theyre nothing special. The shit ones stand out. So we notice them more, and theyre in our heads more, and so they seem bigger and worse.
Not saying they arnt still a problem, because they are.
It up to each of us to genuinly be nice, and surrond ourselves on the internet with people we like, and trust. Forums let anyone post, even horrible people. Discord servers, group chats, friend lists, they dont. And all of those are full of "Internet People,"but theyre the nice ones.
