You’re so right. It’s human nature to infer. As they say, no 2 people read the same book. It’s the vitriol I take issue with. I can relate to your story... I had a similar experience recently. I suspect if we woke up one day and all the fake avatars and fake nicknames were replaced with real faces and legal names, people would speak differently. Easy to be a jerk when you’re anonymous, as most of the trolls are.
