If I knew where the butthurt originated from I might be able to help, but it was just a totally out of the blue hate filled email, you'd think that I had slept with his Mother, then cleared out the family inheritance and smoked the grandmothers ashes while taking a shit in the cistern of their favourite toilet. 

I have a strong feeling this certain individual is a little mentally unhinged.

Re: Hate Mail

are you sure you weren't just trolled?
(it would probabaly take a few messages to tell the difference between genuine idiocy and intelligently masked trolling)

Re: Hate Mail

Nah this was an out right idiotic abuse.  Like I mentioned earlier, I received a bit of abuse from this fool on Google+.  I can tell you from the little interaction I have had with this moron that he doesn't have the mental capacity to troll.

Re: Hate Mail

Re: Hate Mail

Pretty sure this holds

after I get that knee jerk reaction out of the way, I realize that hate mail is not really about me. It’s about the sender. I just happen to be today’s target of something that has gone very wrong in their life.

Exactly, thanks for sharing.

I find the younger generations are like this, an over blown sense of entitlement and "but I want it now" attitude.

I have a feeling you are right.  Its a sad state of affairs when you can't accept the "blame" for your own actions.

Re: Hate Mail

it's OK to "want it now", but it's not OK to loose all decency in ANY online discussion.
the internet seems to be attracting this, and maybe the so-called "FOSS community" in particular.
Trolling or getting rid of negative emotions/thoughts under the protection of online anonymity is nothing new, but what strikes me recently is that people seem to be expecting this toxic athmosphere right from the start. like they want to interpret every little thing as an insult or trolling or flaming, and reply with a vengeance.

anyhow, that's why I wonder if people behave like that IRL too.

Re: Hate Mail

Maybe

Toxicity = work to be done (t) / being on time (t)

So if I have to wait for other ppl/system to deliver before starting my work the amount of toxicity will increase (its probably not linear).

Or other/me

Or (other * my problems * troll constant variable) / me
