The Wrath/Clash of the Titans

I know a lot of you have dealings with people on the site,and in real life. It comes down to the crunch where adults behave worse then children if they don't get their own way.
How would you handle an adult that behaves in this way?
Is it intimidation?
Is it a long standing childhood problem that makes adults behave in such an eratic way?
Is it their upbringing?
I have always strived to be the best that I can be,and yet and I have stressed upon my children to have manners and be polite to adults so they grow up and become well adjusted adults themselves.
Or am I missing something?

I have always told myself that I would never be any man's slave to do their bidding, sexual or other wise.Some one doesn't tell me to do things,I like to do in my own time and not their time.

It's online. No one can force anyone else to do what they don't want to do. Frustration is usually in people not doing what we want them to do, right? Is that really their problem, or ours? No matter how frustrating they are, they are still just being them, and we have a choice whether or not to interact with them... because it's online.

Since it is online, if we continue to interact with people who 'unnerve' us, then we should ask whether we're really as frustrated as we tell ourselves; or if we're seeking out that which we are knocked loose by. Since they're not going to change, unless they choose to change, we can either change our attitude towards them (learn to accept them), or cut off communication.

I guess real life works the same way (learning to accept, versus cutting off interaction), it's just a little harder to actualize.

I just try and use the golden rule in all my dealings. Both online and off. Mostly, I do not let myself become upset by things I see online. I can always turn off the puter.
