Why does it feel good to fight with people on the internet?

I’ve been online since the early 90’s and during that time I’ve figured out that arguing with someone about anything is pointless.

I believe the people who engage in online arguments do so because it strokes their own ego. Kind of an adversarial based confirmation bias.
Kinda like stepping in puddle instead of walking around it.

Welcome fellow chick! Meet @Laughing Grass as we were just talking that we needed other chicks here with us! Yay welcome!
Thanks for the welcome, but unfortunately I don't think I am the chick you're looking for. My knowledge on this hobby is limited and really I don't get along well with the general public. My plan is more to sit back and read articles rather than trying to fit in and share my experiences with the rest of you. Hey it's just my way of keeping myself happy, so please don't take it personal.

It’s all good.

In the real world and the major raise in public surveillance, most adults that give out a beating would be charged with assault and detained. At least I would hope so for me and my families safety. As a woman that was forced into kick boxing at a young age and continued through to a fighting career in my early 20s; in my later years the rush of the fight isn't there anymore. My hands constantly hurt, my shins ache when it rains and honestly I constantly ponder if it was worth it. When you rush into a fight irl on the street, there are way more dangers such as aids, weapons and a myriad of other things that come into play just to teach a stranger a lesson. Not worth it! Fuck that stranger because they are obviously not happy with their life and I couldn't be more apathetic how they live their seething lifestyle. You really want to fight? Get in the ring, where there is more than enough people to make sure you don't find yourself in a life threatening situation (but yet it still happens). There is a reason why most fight clubs (in lieu of a better term) preach to you that you shouldn't start a fight on the street. They cement it in your head to walk away. If you a good fighter, one street fight can be the end of your career (you would be kicking ass but the courts are going to hit you with the max sentence).

Injuries suck, hope you had a speedy recovery. I love how athletic training would make me feel. I still recommend training in a controlled environment over going to look for a fight <3 Definitely nice to know when forced to protect yourself. Glad to hear you came out on top, sorry about your hand though :(

I think many people have an appetite for "fighting"/clashing/going at it "tooth and nail". Perhaps it comes naturally(Mr. DNA) or the result of a life experience....maybe. The ceaseless mudslinging, character assassination, ridicule and threats. Lots of cat and dog fights flying around here. Plenty of members ready and waiting to pounce upon even totally innocuous posts, the bushwhack , blitzkrieg , bum-rush. I've noticed the threat " expect the Fed's at your door" is a popular cliche. I like getting along with people , meeting great dudes and having good exchanges but what the hell, if ya get a rush from "fighting", go for it. Whatever turns you on. It's only words, not the "sticks and stones".

Honestly, arguing with people on is pointless, their opposing views are already cemented, so whats the point? I just want to grow mushrooms/buds, play with my guns and left the fuck alone
