Executive Decision

I’ve decided that people on the Interweb are all idiots and morons and that people should really just agree with whatever I say and we’d all be happier.  Is that so hard to understand?

More seriously, why is it so difficult to have an intelligent conversation with people on the web?  What about human nature makes ad-hominem attacks completely acceptable in a comment thread?  I know there have been studies on this and the lack of empathy with a faceless opponent but it still bugs me.  Have the decency to assume intelligence.
