Why do people get so mad when they bow and get backstabbed?

I`d avoid bowing unless the other guys does it first or I know how I`m fighting, but regardless, I don`t see the point. What`s the point of attacking someone to take a cheapshot and go back to your world? It`s not like you won anything, and it wasn`t a fun fight either... I`d rather lose a good fight than win a boring one

You wanna know what's worse? Sunbros with their host bow to you then proceed to try and gank you.

If I bow and someone backstabs me, I'll keep an eye out for them and next time I see them I'll wear the cheapest loadout I have and mutilate them while cheating to high heavens. Glitches, cheap shots, shoving off pits... anything and everything to win in the dirtiest possible fashion.

Then, when they rage-mail me, I'll calmly tell them 'Remember that time when I bowed and you stabbed me in the back? Karma's like that, son.'

After reading all this, tonight I hosted at Oolacile bonfire and some guy invades, runs closer to me, bows, then when I bow back he runs up and Dark Hands me for 10 humanity. Then he runs off during my recovery and black crystaled out of my world...

I don't gesture when an invader is in range, unless they do first. Most people that have enough respect to bow first have enough manners to let me finish bowing back.

That said, the one or two times that I've been backstabbed during a gesture animation and then won afterward, I'll spam the **** out of the "Down Point" and "Well, what is it?" gestures just so they that I think they're a total d-bag.

It is aggravating when an invader (since I never invade) bows to me, gets his ass kicked into low health, and then run away and pops a Humanity. I had someone do that twice to me while I was fighting in Anor Londo a few weeks ago. I was mid speed, he was fast, and this was before the DWGR got nerfed, so he had more Poise than I could break with my weapon. I never healed, but I still won, and I made the "Shrug" gesture at him so he'd know that I thought "well, better luck next time you try it."
