Fish-keeping forums can get a little nasty sometimes.

I came across this recently and it reminds me why we need to thread the waters with care…

From a recent article, "of the hundreds of comments, 53 per cent of anonymous commenters were uncivil, as opposed to only 29 per cent of non-anonymous commenters. Their behaviour is rooted in three words: Online. Disinhibition. Effect."

What do you think? Is there too much hate on the internet?

Yours sincerely,
