Theirs the answer. (At least in UK, our streets are like a battle field LOL)

People simply don't bring up their kids how they used to, they don't teach them what's bad and good properly (I used to get a hit if I was naughty.. I soon learned LOL), nor do they bring their kids up with manners.

And it's also that a lot of people simply forget they ever posted. Or otherwise are just plain ignorant.

And ones who do post thanks. Good on them!

As for me.. Do I post thanks? Yes Always if it helped me.

People always complain about the youth, always. Give it a rest. The generation before me funded this:

The generation before them did this:

The generation before them did this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_War_I

Before that people had slaves. I could go on and on and on. Humanity is only getting better, not worse.

A simple thanks is one great thing to find nowadays, even if I am 15, I do understand the fact a simple thank you is a good thing. Though, with all the jack---es on the internet, the ignorant people, etc... It's just not worth thanking some people.

I've kind of just got fed up with quite a few people on this website, they're always demanding more because they SAY so, not because they're thankful.

Really, a simple "Thank you" is very nice for a developer to hear every once in a while. </rant>

@WoW video: I think I know that kid O_o looked familiar... Though I don't think he's THAT dorky...

Humanity is not getting better - where is your proof of this ?

Everyday the human race thinks up new ways to torture his fellow man.
Also the youth of today are getting away with murder and thats because the kids have no respect and thats down to the goverment and all the other do gooders telling people what they can and cannot do with their kids.
A good smack would`nt do half of these kids any harm and most of them proberly need it.

As for the older generations starting wars then dont worrie as this generation and the rest to follow will do exactly the same.

Probably the fact that we are getting less violent towards one another as time goes on.

But you know, keep spouting off anecdotes and such. I enjoy hearing them, nerd raging, then proving you wrong.

Stops at 03. Seems to be US Only..

Anyhow.. you think the streets are safe in england? go into a little suburb, like the ones were you walk in an area, if you don't have the same post code as them, they'll kill you.

Trust me. This world is no better than it's ever been.

"Crime rates" are generally judged by whom has been imprisioned and caught.. How can they say it's a youth, if they don't know the killer? Stat's are never right, as the government always lie anyway.

England is like America now, where it never used to be. It's like a battle field. Really.

PS: "Technically" it's my generation that are bad (90's)

u need to STOP taking your pills,as your seeing the world in a different light to the way im seeing it.

The world is getting more violent because people dont care about anyone else except themselfs.For every good person out there,theres a 1000 bad ones.

Also you aint proved anything - where is your proof that we are getting less violent towards one another ?
You said you provide proof but where is it ?

I can provide proof that we getting more violent and even the killers are getting younger.
Adults used to kill kids - now it kids killing kids and adults - how the tables have turned.
Wonder how long it will be before we have our first infant killer (still in nappies)

I'm so VERY thankful for coders and I do see that they care kind of treated badly here. I mean really, they aren't getting paid for any of this but some members treat coders like they've paid for something-so demanding and rude some of the time.

Not me.

I always try to say thanks, though sometimes I leave something for a week, then come back to the thread to say thanks for answers to my questions.

And I often open the door for others.

Not that I am saying that humanity is getting better (though thanks for the flamewar entertainment) or that it is getting worse. Or main bad thing about Britain is the beer and the price of ciggies.

Hey, I'm just a'lurking.

Obviously you have not been around enough women in big cities. They will yell at you if you hold the door open for them. They want to be as equal as a man.

So be it! I never get up to offer my seat on the transit system anymore. They expect to be treated like a lady with men benefits. GAWD!
