I always got along with other kids growing up, had many friends.
I try to act the same way online as I do in person. I treat people with respect no matter if you make minimum wage or $1mm's a year. Most important thing is to be a stand up guy. I teach my kids the same.
As I have come to see in this day and age is how people can be complete animals when they are in front of a computer. I am not just talking about horse forums, I am also talking about the way people talk on a simple email response.
I liked the good old days, you manned up and said to someones face what was bothering you, and if you didnt, you kept your mouth shut. If it turned to a schoolyard fight, you settled it out..and it was over....god do I miss the good old days....

Ahhh, The good old days. Grandstands packed. The apron 4-5 deep. Had to either worm your way to the front or sit on your dad's shoulders to see the races.
That's the good old days.
Anybody who takes anything seriously on a computer needs to get a real life.

I wouldnt say people take things too seriously. Guess I am a compassionate person....when horse racing forums turn into bringing family into things...ah whatever....
