So many 'x' marks to click...

I've never been afraid to express an opinion. That much is obvious.

I was ready to back up my statements with a number of well-researched articles, until... wow, the sheer number of angry personal insults thrown at me was just, well... stunning. Never have I dismissed so many angry comments, some from people I thought knew me better. A number were burner accounts and easily dismissed, but a few... well, it made me sad. It makes me sad.
