A question about Dan's 'keyboard warriors'.?

not trying to instigate ANY fight (my avatar will do it for me lol)

but isn't there a saying- the pen is mightier than the sword

so they keyboard can(has) hurt you more than anyone can do physically

How come 'keyboard warriors' are cowards if they can hurt you more?

just a question out of curiosity....no personal insults please

I am curious to know Dan's defence for this is his theory

    Aye, but a keyboard isn't a pen, is it? It's a keyboard.

    And the saying basically means that a pen can ruin you. Identity, reputation, anything and everything.

    Only cowards need to do that whilst avoiding physical confrontation.

    what has this got to do with me? I fail to see how my name has anything to do with this question.

    There are lots of sayings in the world that are not true or can be read into to suit a argument

    But a keyboard warrior is someone sitting behind a pc making threats because they are not brave enough to do it in real life as they know they can get away with it online.

    Lets look at it this way someone makes a threat to me online what can I really do about it but someone does the same to me down the pub they get a massive kick in.

    "the pen is mightier than the sword"

    You have COMPLETELY missed the point of that saying.

    Besides, there's also another saying. "sticks and stones may break my bones, but mere words will never hurt me"
