Yahoo news is living up to its name. The comments section is just page after page of angry, vengeful, and bullying comments. Thing is, I can't help but wonder if this is how people really think once the politeness filters are off and the consequences gone. A lot of anti-everything, aside from violence.
It's all very lizard-brain. Very "MINE, STAY AWAY!" No room for complexity, thought, ambiguity. "Hurt them before they hurt you" thinking.
Mind you, I'd like to find somewhere to comment and read comments about news of the day. These news boards, though, are as healthy as drinking a liter of water from the Fukashima plant.
