While I'll certainly acknowledge the potential for abuse, it's not necessarily going to always be illustrative of a failure to exercise any thought or one's lacking capability. It actually takes a great deal of thoughtful restraint sometimes not to respond to the baiting, which just encourages the trolls who are not here for a thoughtful exchange, but to get their adrenaline fix from combative confrontation. Replying to them really serves no productive purpose.

To anti-gay bigots: Don't bother disrespecting me, as I've probably already ignored you. To some, "we will never be, never be anything but loud and nitty gritty, dirty, little freaks". Search YouTube for "Lily Allen" & "Gay Collab"; you'll find collaborations by people in several countries expressing my ultimate opinion of your attitude problem.
I'm an independent and consider 'Left vs. right', 'liberal vs. conservative', 'Democrat vs. Republican' partisan hackery unworthy of my time.
