This Explains SO Much!

I've been musing for some time about the level of civility in online discourse. It's been well documented that when people communicate electronically instead of face-to-face that it's easier to degenerate into personal attacks and such. People write things in e-mails and blog posts that they would never say face-to-face.

And it bothers me that some people seem to revel in this.

But yesterday I finally read an explanation that makes more sense (via Atrios): psychotic gnomes and leprechauns control the blogosphere!

I think we can all rest better now.
