Uncivil discourse

I don’t often wander into the comments sections of blogs and newspapers, and for good reason. No matter the content of the original blog post or news article (sports, news, religion, the weather, etc.), it doesn’t take long for the comments section to devolve into the most vile, coarse dialogue one could ever imagine. Unfortunately, many of those who hide behind their keyboards simply cannot carry on any sort of online conversation without being contentious. I cannot relate to this type of behavior, which is why I long ago stopped participating in these forums. Sometimes you can’t even say anything nice without being attacked.
