It was silly, though. At least let me explain that it was raining all day, so I got sucked into it. I promise to behave from now on, though. Really, a civil discussion there quickly became impossible. Overweight people were being accused of hastening global warming by exhaling more carbon dioxide than the average person, for chrissake. I got a cute email (from someone I had not even spoken to directly up until then) about my mother, anyone who spoke out to deride the two main flamers was dismissed as being fat and ugly...you get the idea.
The thing is, it was kind of fun, in a weird way, to jump in...to get down to their level...it's just too easy to cyber-smack people--that's the scary thing...next time I will steer clear, though.
