Yeah definitely, it’s like, who’s going to come to the table first in the extreme ends of the spectrum? I think that’s why it’s good to have more general discussions about civil discourse on public forums and challenge people who go extreme and resort to name-calling etc. I think a great step would be to diffuse the social media ‘trolls’ by requesting conversation over private message or something – think a lot of the satisfaction comes from the fact that it’s often on public forums and people enjoy getting a rise out of others.
