Agreed. Everyone has a temper. The golden rule is key. Do not do unto others what you know will make them angry/upset/depressed/hurt/etc.

But of course! Button pushers are addicted to the rush they get when they evoke a reaction from someone who is easily provoked. It's a sick, control thing. Quite often those "pushers" have no real control over anything in their lives.....therefore, it's the only "control" fix they have.
