Dear jj,

There is a substantial population of people who demand respect and refuse to give it; who are eager to give offense and eager to take it; who praise in themselves what they abhor in others; and who cherish above all else the right to be obnoxious with impunity. It is inevitable that some number of them will find their way onto The Net, that great soapbox upon which anyone might shout into a passing and indifferent crowd.
