The Internet is what you make it. I have found, since I utilize the Internet to post my politico-religious views on blogs and forums, that cliques develop, attitudes harden against this or that person regardless of what they say or do, the sandbox or playground or bully mentality rules, instead of treating each new post as a new post, something to consider and maturely evaluate, even if disagreeing with the person on some other subject in the past.
