Sometimes it's not easy to remember that key saying.
Sometimes you get hit with another slam from the "if you're not 100% with us, you're 100% against us" school of non-thought, and you really want to respond.
Until you remember that:
- A response won't change anything; the jackass will continue being a jackass and cherry-picking what you write for stuff to attack.
- If I'm to take Greg* at face value, any "attack" (response) to someone on that side of the political spectrum, no matter how extreme or misguided they are, is treated as an "attack" on everybody on that side--a remarkable worldview in its own right, but one that dissuades me
- A real response would require linking to the braying, thus giving the jackass a much larger audience.
The moral is, as always:
Don't feed the trolls.
