I'm not going to discuss politics with you and I would appreciate it if you would stop breaking the forum rules by bringing that subject up.

Look, the absence of force is the reason that people are rude trolls on the internet.

1,000 years ago people were very polite because if you weren't you were likely to get a sword or spear stuck in your neck.

100 years ago people were polite because if you weren't you just might catch a bullet from someone's six-gun.

Today people IRL are fairly polite because the occasional smack upside the head/stabbing/shooting does happen. We see in on the news fairly often anyway.

But on the internet you're completely safe! So on the internet everyone is free to be a complete rude jerk. That was specifically why I used that picture of Gary Mitchell in an earlier post. Because that is what happens to people when they lose all fear.

On this forum all you have to fear is the moderators.
