Ah, the dice we roll when we post things online.
Sandra’s fifth Live Journal post, a nice piece about gardening, got anonymously trolled, drive-by style.
I, however, posted a “wee discourse” lamenting the corruption of religious principles, and the ensuing discussion of religion did NOT erupt in a flame-war. There was nary a troll to be seen ANYWHERE.
You’re all to be commended on your reasonable behavior. The anonymous troll, however… he does not get commended. He gets lampooned.
Going forward, know that I plan to keep religious and political stuff fairly low-key. While I do have strong right-leaning tendencies, I’m not especially evangelical about them. Mostly I prefer to talk about fun stuff.
The implications of finding or not finding WMDs in Iraq is NOT fun stuff. Building WMDs on the other hand… the physics, the chemistry, the biology… I can talk about that for hours.
My mouth should probably be re-classified as a munition.
