The mob mentality and anonymity of the internet is certainly not helping in some cases.

There's a difference between using the power of the people to affect change - for example an organised boycott of a product or company for a justifiable reason; compared to the frothing rabid manic wild eyed screaming of a bunch of people acting like entitled children throwing a tantrum.

Unfortunately the latter is much more common in video gaming.

I've also seen it on my side of arguments. I've actually seen someone parrot an argument I, myself, made, just a couple days later.
