I think that internet drama is mostly attributed to the misunderstanding found in typed words (whereas irl you have expression/tone)...one example i can think of right now is some post that went like this:
op- what is your favorite sandwich?
lj user- i like bacon, ham, salami, and cheese
me- that is so not kosher!
lj user- Fuck off and don't tell me what i can or cannot eat, BITCH.
i was obviously joking through my comment but the poster didn't get it...do you think that had to do with misunderstanding or just personality?
what about in general (that is, if you see a lot of unneccesary internet drama), what do you think causes it?
OR Are internet users just more open to saying whatever they're really thinking because they have more anonymity online?
