7. Age
A lot of the "mean and rude" posters are 24-45 years old, and a lot of the "hurt or offended" posters are over 50. Maybe the young don't have manners nowadays, maybe the old are too touchy, I don't know.


I find thaS statement to be very true. Seems it's a different world these days than when us 40 or 50 year olds grew up. More fast paced, more impatience, more anger and less respect. Unfortunately, I even see that in my own children (ages 20 and 15) Makes me long for the good old days.
