  •  Well, MB, here's the thing (8+ / 0-)

    Once upon a time, I used to battle conservative acquaintances on got to the point where every time I dared post something counter to their rant, I held my breath, expecting an onslaught of nasty responses. So I just stopped.

    I find myself holding my breath here now.

      is exactly what those that do the most back biting would like to see happen. I don't comment as much as I used to.

      If peace is to prevail we all have to become foes of violence.

          I still can't believe you put yourself out there like this.  It takes some serious courage and humility.  

          I released a game recently and it wasn't a big hit or anything, but it was generally well liked by the people who bought it.  

          Except for the people who were pissed about having to enter an activation code.  There is a whole huge 'controversy' among a lot of gamers about protection software.  

          I got a lot of public comments from some really pissed off people and they didn't just voice a complaint, they set out to convince other people to not buy the game on principle.  It was not a fun experience.  Especially since I had nothing to do with it.

          So, I don't even begin to know how you do it.  You put your work at risk by just being here.  And I remember how some people publicly swore off your books after you announced support for Unions in WI.  But here you are still.  Pretty kick ass, man.  You have my respect.

      Lately, I'm to the post of every topic on facebook (Guns, Zimmerman), and to the right of every topic on KOS (again, Gus, Zimmerman).  It's an odd place to be. I feel like I'm a pretty standard left-center liberal, but I find in nowhere.
