      people.

      That you wish to have judgments internal to yourself is your right.

      You may not have the right to expect that other people accept either your judgment or your right to judge them.  If you want to imagine yourself "more grown up" than people who don't believe a dime's worth of respect or consideration should be wasted on A.B., that is an opinion you are welcome to hold.

      However, don't expect that looking down your nose at people is going to change anything.

        But I think most of us here really are better people than Breitbart and his ilk. I think most people here have demonstrated a better sense of manners, and certainly a higher sense of morality, than Breitbart ever did. But, hey, you don't have to show more class than he ever did if you don't want to - Heaven forfend that anyone would ever try to make you do what you don't want to do. I certainly never will.

        Oh, and if you personally don't want to be patronized, then don't be patronizing to others.
