Are you really asking why it upsets people that you act without courtesy. You readily admit to being discourteous; do you not know what that means?
One thing that the internet is still a work in progress is in how social conventions and courtesy are handled. As it stands now schadenfreude or plain ole trolling for angry responses is seen as 'fun.' The meme's of 'you mad?' just stink of antisocial behavior.
Gen X and gen Y types are both very culpable to this trend. Boomers on the other hand are not. One thing that I noticed about this board as opposed to the other gaming and likewise boards that i have been on is the truth of this.
I recall guys like trick, chief, hos and others always talking about class and how behaving with it is important. It was important around here as that was the culture.
Seems like those days are long gone and now we have people asking "why do you all get so butt hurt if I'm not 'civil'?" The worm, but oh does it turn.
