Being polite

Has everyone forgotten how to be polite? It seems like such an old fashioned word (and concept) these days.

Somewhere along the line the norm has become impatience, aggression and often downright rudeness. 

Wherever there's a debate: from online forums, to politics and the media, everyone could do with reviving a bit of politeness.

We're taught to be polite when we're small. Where has it gone?
