The Internet forums provide an avenue for people to say what comes to their minds first without thinking or say things they would never say in person.

Example: when I see a civic all lowered and cambered out running on the corner of the tire, my first thought is to laugh and say how ridiculous that is. However, if I were to meet the person and talk to them I would just ask them how it performs and perhaps maybe take it for a ride to experience it. I would inhibit my initial thoughts. Nasioc or Internet forums in general have a way of removing that inhibition. As a car enthusiast I like to try to keep an open mind, so I can appreciate different styles/interests.

Most people also take things a bit too personal on the Internet. Guess it's just human nature. Sounds like a good sociology thesis for some graduate student.
