Internet Incivility


Even the most innocent of on-line posts can find internet trolls waiting to pounce. Maybe you heard about the recent experience of retired major league pitcher Curt Schilling. Let's talk about internet incivility -- does anonymity, or just the lack of face-to-face contact, just turn people into jerks? Why would you say something online that you wouldn't say to someone's face?
