The Dickwad Theory or John Gabriel's Greater Internet Fuckwad Theory[1] states that:

Normal Person + Anonymity + Audience = Total Fuckwad

Face it, this explains everything.

Examples and applications[edit]

When your group considers being an asshole a virtue, well, the process accelerates.


Yahtzee Croshaw of Zero Punctuation fame has postulated that the theory is actually too complex and proposes removing the "Anonymity" and "Audience" sections to leave the formula as "Normal Person = Total Fuckwad", on the basis that *all* people are fuckwads and that it's not so much the presence of anonymity or an audience that causes issues but more the lack of consequence for being outwardly the complete dick someone necessarily is on the inside.[2]
