        and those are thick with some ignorance and crazy-talk. But that's about it. Sounds like people are riled up about stuff I have somehow managed to sidestep.

        I know I piss some people off; how I've managed to avoid the knives is... well, I dunno. Probably because I'm not really a big presence here, I just pop in for a few days at a time and then I'm busy in real-life again and won't be back for a week or more...

        But it looks like things here are mirroring society at large: polarization-- "anyone who doesn't completely adhere to my interpretations are the enemy!" We can see similar things happening among the GOP-- the Teabaggers vs. the realists, Libertarians vs. Theocrats, etc.

        I don't get too worried about it because this sort of entrenchment pretty much guarantees that not one damn thing will get done because no one faction will achieve sufficient critical mass to get anything done; certainly not if they cling to inflexibility in the process. And since there's nothing to be gained but frustration... may as well kick it in neutral and coast until something changes the game.
