      Why some people are idiots?!?!

      Well, every time I ask or post something some where on internet 75% of the answers or replies are attacks or total spam or nonsense! WHY!!! Even offline in real life some times people act like that (most of those people are in America, I think). That's so ANNOYING! Does anything happen to you like that?

      Okay unnecessary comment about America...

      As for online people, well... I haven't looked up the numbers (though now I'm thinking I should), but seems like a huge chunk of people who post online are either 11 years old or really socially awkward in real life and use the anonymity of the internet to act up. What'd ya expect?

      It also really depends on what sites you visit.

      You may want to work on your communication skills. Also, if you're uncertain about the location of people you interact with offline, in real life, there may be more serious issues.
      If you have a sense of caring for others, you will manifest a kind of inner strength in spite of your own difficulties and problems. With this strength, your own problems will seem less significant and bothersome to you. By going beyond your own problems and taking care of others, you gain inner strength, self-confidence, courage, and a greater sense of calm.Dalai Lama

      Hey! No need to be hating on the Americans.

      If you have an issue with some of the replies and you really must get the solution solved, take up with the administrators or moderators.

      So true.

      Oh wait, would this be considered an unnecessary comment?

      Read your own post with an objective point of view. You will be given the answer.

      If the questions you typically ask are as dumb as this one, the answer to your question seems a bit obvious. Have you ever considered that the common denominator in these situations seems to be you? Maybe if you actually posed a thoughtful question, you might get a thoughtful response. Just a suggestion... but hey, what do I know, I'm just an American.

      Speaking only from the evidence on this board, you tend to be an extremely abrasive person, Stas. Frequently 'shouting' insults in all caps, berating people who believe differently than you do. You get what you give. If you are constantly hostile and belligerent, you will be much more likely to get hostile and belligerent responses, even in the few instances when you aren't being that way.

      Because you seem to post a lot of questions in which you're sure that you're correct in your thoughts on a subject, ignorant of facts that others might have contradictory facts and may correct you. Instead of weighing both sides evenly, you go on the offensive. If you keep that up, you will not be on this forum very long.

      If you're in a minority on a forum, you don't do your side any better by screaming about your position. The majority of Dreamviews are liberal, atheist, middle class kids between the ages of 15 and 25. If you're not in that group, prepare to have some of your posts criticized and contradicted. Take the criticism and don't be an ass about it.

      Non-sensicle responses are not allowed on Dreamviews other than in Senseless banter. If you deal something senseless then hit this button and the mods/admins/ and I will remove it.

      157 is a prime number. The next prime is 163 and the previous prime is 151, which with 157 form a sexy prime triplet. Taking the arithmetic mean of those primes yields 157, thus it is a balanced prime.

      First off, anti-American comments are NOT appreciated.

      Anyways, to answer your question there, a large percentage of the internet are socially awkward 12 year old boys.

      Dream views is lucky enough to be better than that, as Ninja said, we're ages 15-21, Dreamviews is relatively mature in comparison to a large chunk of the internet.

      I looked at threads you've started, and posts you've made, and its no wonder you think people are idiots. You're questions tend to be confusing, and when you act like you know it all, someone will immediately bring you down and show you that you don't.

      To be fair, he only said people IN America. If you ask some people, even most people born here aren't "real Amuricans."

      The majority of people posting in the extended discussion might be atheist, but that doesn't represent the forum as a whole. That's a pretty bold statement, and I'm not sure what it's based of

      Okay:

      The majority of Dreamviews posters are liberal, atheist, middle class kids between the ages of 15 and 25.

      There, happy? Based on countless "What religion are you?" polls, religious debates, and chat discussions on the subject.

      Because if we had no idiots then the smart people wouldn't be smart compared to the idiots. Then the smart people would not feel smart. In fact, idiots don't know that they are idiots. They already think they are smart. They are too idiotic to realize that they are idiots. They think that the intelligent people are idiots.
