Internet drama can usually happen because of user’s tendency to judge one’s character instead of being “objective” about them. They will more or less troll/criticize any slight difference they have that bothers them. Sometimes, those same critics will use other user’s opinions to validate their concerns/accusations about the behaviors of others. There is a quite a number of users out there that start this type of drama because they are attention whores.
They crave attention and drain yours to get it. Those types of users are more aware of what they are doing then they let on with others in the community/forum/IRC/Chat RPG they are involved in. In the end, what it comes down to is stress impacting the brain to think and react differently, change with the environment or bottom line “Leave”. The more that leave will less and less the populace pool to convers ate or cause drama towards and eventually will dry up and blow away like dust off a comet into the dark and unforgiving void.
