What is honor good for on internet forums?
You'll have to go into more detail and lay out some examples/arguments on this one.On virtually all the forums i visit, i can see that most people instinctively are seeking the respect of others, even though it doesnt seem to serve any purpose and the resulting behaviour appears primitive.
So what is honor good for on internet forums?
Where did i say adults base their behaviour strictly on that?Adults do not base their actions/words strictly on fear of being disliked or beaten up.
In societies where honor plays a big role, the opposite can happen. They care about the opinions of others so much that they would kill their own offspring over it.One key sign of maturity is not saying what you think others want to hear - not caring if people don't like you for who you are.
Actually i was talking about honor (not 'being polite') in the sense of caring about reputation so much that one doesnt dare express an opinion that would make one less popular/less credible in the group.People treat people with respect because people are worthy of respect. It isn't much more complicated than the Golden Rule.
