What do you think makes IMDB users more aggressive than other internet users?

Question by grayure: What do you think makes IMDB users more aggressive than other internet users?
I have been all over the internet, particularly on Usenet, and although there´s a lot of hostility all over the place, i have found that the users of message boards on the Internet Movie Database are angrier and more insulting to each other than anywhere else i´ve seen, including Usenet which has a reputation for being unfriendly. What do you think it is about there in particular that makes it so hostile?

Best answer:

Answer by =]
I have noticed the same thing! When you ask a question even, people on IMDB seem to be hostile or condescending in the way they answer! Well, what I came to guess is that the reason people go on the forums is usually because they feel strongly about a movie or tv...

What type of people used the internet in the 70’s & 80’s?

Question by The Equalist: What type of people used the internet in the 70’s & 80’s?
I was looking through Google’s Usenet archives that date back to 1981, reading posts. Also, Usenet dates back to the 70’s if I recall.

Was just curious as to what type of people used the internet before it became well-known to the public – computer scientists, the military, nerds, hackers, etc?

I don’t think the internet started to become a household commodity until around 1994.
