An interesting question has been brewing in my head in regards to all the ridiculous, stupid, idiotic stuff I see online all the time. It seems like no matter where you go there is always somebody spouting out the most ridiculous and profane crap imaginable.

So these are the possible scenarios I came up with to explain why this is the case.

A) The internet has somehow brought the collective population's IQ and inhibitions down

B) People have always been this way, but the internet allows them to more easily express their hate and ill conceived ideas.

C) Something about the anonymity of the web brings out the worst in many people.

D) The few people who are problems just are able to overpower the rest of the world.

E) It's all Richard Nixon's fault.

I Think its a combination of the 5, personally, but I think i shall expand on this idea later.
