    Meteor Blades seems to do an outstanding job of community moderation despite the abject failure to be perfect.

      I just so needed to vent.  This woman is incredible.  She and I were both holding off tears and she tells me, "It's ok, it could be worse".  I'm like how the hell could it be worse?!?  She is very sick, anemic, weak, covered in itchy and sore spots, and clearly needs care.  Just basic, human care.  And she is trying as hard as she can just to keep a roof over her head.  Ans she tells me, "I could be in a wheelchair, or have cancer."  This is what America has become.  Fuck, I'm fucked, but this woman is at the very edge and still trying to find the bright side.  I wish I had half her courage.

      We cannot give up.
