“I'm on not on either side, and there is no fence. I always have to preface this with the predictable reactionary crowd here who can't handle being "challenged" without jumping to the usual barrage of pantomime insults.
The belittlement of his side far out numbers the other so consistency I can blindly click on these articles just to see how many seconds that predictability is reassured. It's sad, but it requires this much of a preface to even attempt a rational argument in this setting.
How are you any less than a "deluded keyboard warrior" with a comment that is so jam packed with self satisfied condescension it does laps around his "fighting" words. Calling someone out on what you excel at is not a good enough smokescreen to win arguments with no regard to whatever the actual argument was.
Looking right through that, a reality check shows far more axe grinding in the exact same fashion your recent comment history than in his...but facts relating directly to an argument at hand only matter on a certain side of the fence, right?”
“Yeah. This wasn't a case of an elderly lady accusing an apathetic teenager of seeming rude to her. Someone who takes the time to berate someone on their receipt after getting their cash has no business working in customer service for someone trying to run a business. If he valued his job in fear that his kids would starve, he wouldn't have f'd around as if he -was- some anonymous person on the internet.
Save that employee?? How is "lady chinky eyes" a small typo? Where is your mind? When I was a kid working with the public I was lucky to have gotten away with being "awkward". If I was his manager he would've been in the parking lot picking gravel out of his palms before this even had a chance to escalate
What would you consider a fire-able offense? I've seen guys lose CAREERS over researching starting their own business in the same field. Please tell me you're trolling.”
“Yeah... it's like the girl hit the jackpot, and they took it away from her! Outrage. But he had a paycheck AND he moonlit as an exterminator and demanded nothing in return -- (sigh...) always the provider.”
“The person you're backing up also has a zero fan base. If I ever have an AOL fanbase, write me out a prescription for some Iatrogenicify.
Bad joke aside, it's truly frightening how stats like that are so blatantly swept under the rug. Most people assume if it's not being covered on television news, it's just something "internet conspiracy theorists" believe. Trying to explain "why" it's not covered just makes it worse.”

“So you only browse subjects you're already familiar with? Her comment isn't any more irrelevant than yours, which fits in with the same strange phenomenon of pointless reactions that people take the time to post.”

“I often times browse, or thoroughly read about subjects that I am unfamiliar with. But I dont often scroll down to the comment sections of the ones that I find uninteresting, just to tell everyone how uninterested I am.
But, following your logic, welcome to the club.”

“No matter how you slice it, clicking on a link about someone and then saying you don't care about that someone is just plain silly (and I'm being generous here). Please explain how such a comment could ever be in anyway relevant to anyone.”
Yes, as if she was raped and forced to father a rapists' children.
There are many things in life that can cause psychological breakdowns, and not all of them are the result (direct or indirect) of conscious choice. Anyone else who snaps (for reasons much more horrifying than getting pregnant too many times) gets zero sympathy from professionals or fly-by web commentary.
I've worked in a state mental hopspital... that would have your mind and understanding forever changed -- a place where hormone imbalances are the least of one's problems. There were many people who get shat upon by society and would never hurt a bug during their biggest breakdowns, and it's nothing that can even be traced down to life choices that put them there yet are labelled threats to society.”
