There’s this saying that goes like this:
A drunk man’s words are a sober man’s thoughts.
The same can be said about anonymous flamers – he or she will only say those things because of anonymity.
However when you are on the Net, you are never truly anonymous. IPs can be noted, screen captures can be made, and time-stamps can be compared. At times a little investigative work can reveal several commentators to be the same person – multiple personas were created to either stoke the fire or to lend credence to what had been argued earlier.
Why? I can’t really answer that. But to each their own eh? I will just stick to arguing on the facts.
