Why are there so many D-bags on the new TT?

What is probably happening, is since Riot changed the game, the new TT is receiving an influx of SR players, as well as Dominion ones that want to try it out.
-Lets face facts, SR players are a bunch of jerks. The second you join its "OMG NOOB, WE GONA LOOSE, REPORT THIS GUY, ITS HIS FAUL, REPORT THAT OTHER GUY, EVERYONE SUCKS IM AWESOME!"
I think its just that our peaceful little group of players is being invaded by the majority of the LoL community, who can't keep their cool if their life depended on it.

That, and any of the old TT community is probably just steamed that Riot took away their game, so I would imagine their outlook is none too pretty.

-Personally, I went back to SR until they get the old TT back or remove the shrines. Not happy about it but thats just how things are.
I second this. TT players are almost always very relaxed and we just have lotsa fun.

Very true.

Every time I venture to SR, I get frustrated at the lack of muturity.

Play ranked SR and you can multiply all this by 10.

-Getting mad when someone doesnt ban someone they want
-Get mad when someone doesn't talk
-Get mad when ANY portion of the 'meta' is in ANY way changed or altered.
-Call people noobs before they have even seen them play
-Boast about their ELO - subsequently, laugh at otheres for having the same elo, but of course, they desrve to be there.
-Say GG more times than I can stand. In champ select, at the beginning of the game, whenever someone dies, whenever someone does something they don't like...
-Complain endlessly when someone takes cs from a lane
-Criticize the jungler whenever they die (I've seen all three lanes do this simultaneously, but hey, junglers are shapeshifting timetravelers who don't need to keep up in CS)
-Criticize the support for not buying wards, or even touching a minion
-Harp on people when they buy something that isn't how they would build

It goes on. Honestly. My experience of normal 3's was a clam atmosphere, where people lost and won respectively. I saved the best for last, something that developed when I was on my TT spree, and hadn't played SR for awhile.
-People asking to report for unskilled.
Honestly? Not being good at a game is now a bannable offense? Its. a. game.

I'll give you some authority on matter of experience, then, but a few points of yours that I'd like to counter:

Quote:

This shouldn't be happening on TT, since the only Draft mode is Ranked Teams. If your teammates are complaining about your bans, you have a different problem.

Quote:

I've always found this avoidable by simply stating your intentions ahead of time instead of springing it on them when it's your pick.

Quote:

I had that happen to me quite a few times on old TT.

Quote:
-Say GG more times than I can stand. In champ select, at the beginning of the game, whenever someone dies, whenever someone does something they don't like...
Also had this happen on old TT. A friend and my duo'd Normal queue. He picked Teemo, other guy went "GG, squish". My friend proceeded to carry the game.

Quote:

You really shouldn't be taking someone else's CS when there's no reason for you to be in lane.

Quote:
-Criticize the jungler whenever they die (I've seen all three lanes do this simultaneously, but hey, junglers are shapeshifting timetravelers who don't need to keep up in CS)
Considering there really wasn't much room for a true jungler in old TT meta, you wouldn't have seen this much.

Quote:

No support role in old TT. Apples to oranges.

You know that there is an Unskilled Player report function, right? It even says it doesn't cause a ban, but helps seed players more accurately.
