Blogger Wars

Ah flame wars. Velvel & MoChassid would like people to cut them out. I have found in my (personal, offline) life, that people tend to be more upset & to get offended when they have too much free time. When people are busy with [work, family, projects, Talmud Torah, relationships, etc.] they have less time to be offended & therefore fewer things bother them. But since blogs are a hobby for almost all, they are written, almost by definition, by people with a surplus of time. Hence the natural tendency of bloggers to be engaged in flame wars.
(I have previously posted about anonymity & why I don't think that it is the problem for flaming.)
