Funk, you're right, and i'm "on your side." But you will never convince anyone here of this through any conceivable argument. What you're doing, is exactly what galt/dream/mccock/landcrab/whoever wants you to do. To flail about, making yourself look bad and turning everyone else against you. You will not "win" this argument. People will not suddenly change their minds because you post some compelling record. No matter what any of us do, this place will continue to be a nest of some of the most ignorant/sexist/racist/etc dumbfucks. However, there are also plenty of level headed good folks too. But look, I understand, sometimes the shit really gets under my skin too. I'm notorious for carrying on like a total nut when one of these complete fuckwit shitbags starts up their nonsense. But at a certain point you just have to let go and carry on. I mean, don't roll over and turn the other cheek completely, but say your piece, shoot em a dagger and then just drop it. By reacting how you're reacting your just playing into what a troll wants, you are getting wound up by obvious wind ups. I'm not defending anyone who has wronged you, i'm just saying that there really isn't much you can do and your current reaction just makes you smaller, so don't do it.
