All is what is.
Egos and Instigating
There's a certain aura around the internet. There's the people who say they would kill/attack someone on the internet. It's not a very helpful remark. It's actually something I don't say very much, but it's implied I have a tendency to do so when instigated in real life.

Then there's the instigators, the even more unhelpful, because they pretend to be calling out a bluff or the person's alleged incapability to do so. Offline and online the reply is always the same, "You won't!", only online the instigators try and appeal to the disconnected notion of offline and online behavioral patterns by saying, "You won't do it offline!"

The thing is, why does their ego suddenly decide to play "calling out a bluff" like an egotistical a**-hat, online? Does the ego play part in their offline behavior as well, but if not, does the alleged disconnectedness of the offline and online behaviors also play a part in their own reasoning for saying, "You won't!", which would imply that they would never say that counter argument offline, either?

Let's put this in perspective. We have one person saying a person is a b***h or whatever, under the veil of internet anonymity, and the one posting the counter-argument is also posting under the veil of anonymity. Both individuals fear putting up their information in regards to the opposite person doing something with their information, but if either party was as confident in either of their arguments, why is it that both of them fear revealing who the ******** they are?

In conclusion, the egotistical instigator can only be taken as seriously as the other party. My uncle said that, "You won't!" type of remark offline. I punched him in the face. I was easily overpowered as is always, but please, try not to call me out as being a person who's not capable of performing this kind of action.
