I've heard anecdotal reports that people using voice are a lot more rude or brusque than people using text chat -- random interactions on the street, that is, not amongst friends. Has anyone found this to be true/untrue?

I have found it to be true. When I tried voice, I found that the other people who were using it were very quick to:

1) Pressure others to speak
2) Accuse people who didn't use it of "hiding" something.
3) Be rude and obnoxious.

I prefer to type. It forces people to filter themselves before shooting their mouth off and being rude.

There's a lot of what I would call "Voice Bigotry" going around. Some people are all too eager to judge others when there are a host of valid reasons never to use it.
