I don't think it's cool. If I'm mean to anyone, for any reason, I want them to tell me so I can stop doing whatever it is I'm doing.
I prefer being a nice person.

Yeah.. exactly..
It's so stupid though, because most of us don't actually want to be mean, but we are forced to adopt that mindstate because of those people that do.

And my original question was about those kind of people. What is it that propels them to actively open an act of hostility towards another person? I really don't get why anybody would do this...

I got all sorts of response in this thread. There's some that says they do it because it's just their personality. There's some that says it kills time and it's fun to do. Some say it's not mean-ness it's just being brutally honest.

It really make me realize something from this. Ok, truth is nobody would like it if they're on the receiving end of nasty comments. Nobody...

Except those people. I categorize them into 4 types:

-One type is the type that never expect to be in the receiving end. They like to do bad things but never expect to get them. This is a classic narcissistic syndrome. Majority of us believes that people are created equal. These people don't. Their main motivation of being mean? because they can. (did y'all know that all psychopathic murderers out there are diagnosed with extreme narcissistic personality?)
http://personalitydisorders.suite101.com/article.cfm/narcissistpsychopath

-Second one is the type that DO expect to be in the receiving end as well as giving one. These type of people just loves arguing. That's their main motivation for being mean: they enjoy pain as well as inflicting one. I don't have much to say about this except that you people are bunch of sickos. Had your thrills today?

-Third one, they do expect to be in the receiving end as well as giving one. But they don't like it. It's just normal for them though, they actually grew up in an environtment where hatred and hostility is just a norm. These people are normal. Just somehow a casualty of life.

-Last one, these bunch of attention whores. They give mean comments and put up with being in the receiving ends just because they are desperate for attentions. Desperate times calls for desperate measures. So if nothing else gets them through to people, what's the easiest way out? just be hostile to grab some negative attentions. It's still a form of attention isn't it? (To you people.. i don't actually hate you guys. But you should seek help instead of doing these kinda thing)

Anyways, of course sometimes these lines blurred and two or more diffrent types merge together. But most of the time you can categorize mean people like this.

I can't stand it either because my biggest moral "rule" so to speak is that if I can avoid harming others in any way without hindering myself from doing what I need to, I do that. If sometimes that's unavoidable I try and have as little effect as possible. The mean people you're talking about are the ones that go out of their way to make someone else miserable or to bother them. I really don't understand why either, but that's how it is.

Yeah they are interesting, and I've got a bus full of them, heh. They're always the ones that sit the farthest from the bus driver because they know they'd get in trouble. The odd part is that they harass her as well. That part always seemed strange to me, usually kids will try and avoid going for those who have more authority.
I think the biggest thing is that it's their primary source of amusement, so they either have nothing better to do or they find it so incredibly euphoric that they MUST be mean as much as possible
But in all seriousness they never seem to stop. If the kids on my bus can't find someone on the bus to make fun of they start making fun of each other and punching each other and stuff, more so than is considered normal friendly behavior.
