All these banned threads have me wondering something. Why do people have the uncontrollable need to voice their opinion even when they're not supposed to? This is not something that is exclusive to the internet, either. People at my work will discuss politics with customers (which IMO is a no no), and in one instance got into an argument with a customer who worked for a company many people dislike. This seems totally inappropriate, but people still do it. Why? I'm not looking for a debate, I'm looking for an answer. Maybe a philosopher or psychology major can tell me why people have the uncontrollable desire to voice their opinion, even at inappropriate times. But I'd really like to understand the mental process behind this behavior.
