same.

I'm much more social online and my temper is probably a little nastier in person.

People are generally nicer when they are in danger of being shamed by their peers.

About the same. I try to be nice to everybody.

I try my best to be positive and respectful 24/7. So about the same.

People however tend to be nicer in real life because of the anonymity on the internet that allows them to do things without any direct consequences.

It's about the same for me. I usually treat people how they treat me.

Nicer online, since I have all the time in the world to calm down and carefully think my responses through. Also, I usually use more formal language when online, which significantly alters impressions.

I try to be nice to people (or at least keep the snark in check) regardless but the truth is that I don't particularly like other people so I often come across as nicer when I'm only indirectly interacting with people online.
Doesn't exactly help my case that I'm only ever sugarcoating my words when I'm being sarcastic which often doesn't get across through writing.

So, to answer the question: I treat people about the same but come across as nicer online.

Bonus answer: People usually act nicer in face to face situations where they can't hide behind the relative anonymity of the net and may face immediate consequences. Unless you're on the wrong end of a customer service relationship, then people all too often stop being people and turn into some sort of demonic infant.

I'm about the same, maybe a bit nicer depending on what site I'm on.

I'm about the same, but I come across as more arrogant in real life, I believe. That's just due to the fact that when I write online, I can formulate myself better, fully explain how I feel about something and think of appropriate responses.

In real life, I say what I think a lot more and sometimes that can be perceived as me just being an asshole, when I can't really explain myself well.

That being said, I'm more confrontational online, in real life I usually say something and if it turns into some debate or argument, I just let it slide and forget about it.
