I would guess there at least were quite a few people like that on this forum. Given how frequent conflicts between users were on here (in the chatroom as well, of course) until it all quietened down more recently. Outside of this site, I have mostly but not always been nice online. When I have been somewhat nasty, it was far too rare to be any kind of coping mechanism. And my outbursts didn't really involve directly attacking other people as such, but more ranting/complaining aggressively about certain things related to some other forums. I do have a pretty foul temper, but it has never usually shown itself that much online for some reason. Though drinking has been known to have an effect as well.
