Netiquette. I find it fascinating that the general rule of ‘Netiquette’ is so closely related to ‘etiquette’ and yet is still not adhered to.
Simple really, the protective bubble of an API (application programming interface) in other words a computer. No different to a car really, to some the protective bubble that is a car gives rise to abuse – something that most people would not even think about doing unless they were in their ‘protective bubble’.
The difference is the ‘delusional’ behaviour of the instigator. The self proclaimed gatherer of the truth. But the reality being that they’re only convincing themselves that they’re right at the cost of their own integrity and the environment around them.
The reality being that in the main no one has made a mistake. They just thought that someone had and, therefore, convinced themselves that it was so.
