9. Bless you for your reasoned and thoughtful request. I have decided after spending
many months reading and posting, I have come to the conclusion that the anonymous nature of DU allows people to behave in a way that gives them perceived power.

For many, posting flame baited posts and zinger responses has become their drug of choice.

For many, debating on the merits is so foreign of a concept, that they can not process it, because it does not give them the high, flaming does.
