I've seen it happen here, where someone starts insulting people for using words they don't understand or saying things they don't know about, but there's another site I visit where it got really ugly the past few days.
The website made a few changes. The tech savvy people immediately understood that changes=bugs and it would be down for a while, and that they could give feedback to get things fixed. The less tech savvy people lost their damn minds, started threatening to leave, etc etc. Then, when people who understood what was going on started to explain, the ones who were confused started attacking them instead, accusing them of "thinking they're so smart" or "acting like they know so much." Is this still how we raise people? Are we still setting up a kind of knowledge based class warfare where you attack those who know more rather than learn from them? Most of those attacks are from parents of young kids.
