This is why D has banned me from reading YouTube comment threads.
And after just one ten-hour long argument with people calling the late Elizabeth Edwards an unfeminine she-beast because she had the gall to express opinions distinct from those of her husband! I mean, wasn't that time well spent?
The problem is that it feels so icky to stand by while someone says something really unpalatable. I also feel like a collaborator at worst and a bystander at best. D reminds me that in some cases, attention is just a reward for bad behavior. This caution doesn't change my reaction at all.
