I prefer to pick the venue - which is why you'll find me mostly here at DoCo.  :)

Exactly. :)  And for all of our little disagreements, there is definitely a level of respect and genuine search for understanding and sharing that's not found in too many places.

You guys are reminding me of a quote from a Canadian Prime Minister:

Freedom is the right to be wrong, not the right to do wrong.
-John Diefenbaker

I can recall less than 20 ish really negative replies I have received to 5000 posts I have made on the web.

20ish?  That's all???  Your lucky.  I've found it don't matter how neutral you try to be on a subject, there's always a herd of schittheads that make it their personal agenda to write something negative in response.  There's always someone that will pick apart whatever you say and try to turn it into something out of context, with the main agenda to pick a fight or bully.  You know.....Trolls.

Well, there may be a few more grumpy "Anonymous" responses over at slashdot but as much as my feeble memory recalls I don't have a permanent stalker troll after me. So I've done pretty well.

As was alluded by several previous comments, it's important to remember you're walking a fine line when dispensing private justice. You have to be careful to keep any response measured and appropriate to the situation at hand. Because revenge is a path with no ending.

I guess the real point is that, when dealing with a troll, you take care not to become one.

Kind of off topic, but since a few people liked that Diefenbaker quote, here are a couple others that I particularly love:


As long as there is a drop of blood in my body they won't stop me from talking about freedom.
-John Diefenbaker


We do not convert people to think our way by pouring bombs upon them, day after day and week after week.
-John Diefenbaker

The first there reminds me of a couple others by Wilfrid Laurier:


Nothing will prevent me from continuing my task of preserving at all cost our civil liberty.
-Wilfrid Laurier


Canada is free and freedom is its nationality.
-Wilfrid Laurier


There are a few more quotes from Canadian Prime Ministers, but my all time favourite is:

NSFW quote from a Canadian Prime Minister

Fuck off.
-Pierre Elliot Trudeau

;D

Anyone ever hear of "the Trudeau salute"? ;D  :Thmbsup: Hint: It doesn't involve your thumb. ;)
