Submission + - "The Angry Aughts" 1

ImWithBrilliant writes: This decade is winding down with an editorial calling it the Angry Decade as 9/11, wars, etc. converge with social media for instantly expressing anger or instantly angering multitudes. I recall netiquette of the '80's and the 24-hour cool-off rule in the '90's, and this certainly won't be the decade of decorum. Slashdot discussions don't even cycle through most time zones, yet moderates anonymous/voluminous postings into a usable format. Care to comment quickly or emotionally?
