Flyday Five

1) How often do you get tangled in lj-fights?
Never really. It's never worth it for me to fight with someone that won't have a reasonable conversation.

2) How often does an lj someone make a generally unprovoked for snipe at you?
Not often, particularly as I'm not very active in communities.

3) Do you belong to any communities with a high drama factor?

4) What's your theory on why there is so much raw rage on the 'net?
Anonymity + written word= stupidity. It also doesn't help that you've taken a lot of people who don't really interact well in social situations (thus the involvement on the net) and stuck them in one place. The self-image problems alone allow for serious misinterpretation of intent. This is not necessarily true of everyone, but the rule of bad apples seems to apply. Also, the deliberate trolling for reaction...

5) Are these high drama interactions a source of amusement or a nuisance?
It's like a train wreck - can't help watching, but it's no good for traffic.

Perfect timing

I'm catching a cold. Really, this is great timing. The sniffling and itchy eyes are here just in time to make the plane with me Sunday. I'm doing my best to eradicate it and hoping desperately that I've caught it in time. I refuse to be sick on vacation!
