No? I actually have a manager position in IT and work with people daily. I know ways for my word.
What I experience in the English internet specifically are interactions like >>2146
. For example, here's my recent interactions with the "public" (posts on forums and whatnot):
Me: do you prefer MMOs with trinity or with fluid class system? I personally prefer the trinity, (etc etc listing some reasons)
2 people at once spering out at me simultaneously: well I bet you blizzfags can only play trinities lol
Me: why do people use qt for windows-only development when you can do basically the same with .net in less code and time?
The entire chat room turns against me saying that I'm worse than hitler
Me: is there an anime like X? I really like (this and that, listing some things that I like)
Some dude: I bet you also like eating shit (more or less this point scattered across like 5 messages)
And I don't even just express my opinion. I propose a discussion point and even list my personal reasons for this and that, but 90% of the time I'm met with some passive aggressive shit as if I'd threatened their families with my messages or something like that.
