…saying that it's bad in general lets a very few specific posters off the hook for consistently berating--and instigating shit with--many others or just a specific person repeatedly and loudly.

If I've ever been a fucker to someone without provocation, I've apologized, and I've always been able to dial it back if someone wasn't fucking with me in a specific thread, even if I've had numerous flare-ups with that someone in the past. Or in the past hour.

It's just the Internet. My last little hiatus here a few years back taught me to try and not to take it too seriously, and in general I don't. Doesn't mean I'm not going to fire back when someone is being a twat.

"None of this troubles the loop. Trump watches and emotes; he excretes and consumes. That a great and greatly conflicted experiment in self-government has come to this—a whole nation trying to talk a shitfaced trust-fund lout into a cab so that he won’t mow down everyone on the sidewalk, and then talking about what a fantastic job he did barfing in the ashtray—is one thing. It’s many things. But none of those things are complicated."
