    It's still not acceptable here to call someone a troll for disagreement, no matter how vehement the disagreement.  This a long time poster here who happens to have solidly bought into an authoritarian viewpoint.  

    While I've hated the the piefights over this issue and repeatedly suggested to people that they simply not read diaries written by those who they knew will get them riled up and not respond to posts they disagree with, now that it seems like it's happening, I think I like it even less.  I haven't read those written by the Greenwalk bashers because I was taking my own advice, but I admit I hope they haven't become the echo chambers this diary has.  

    The name calling was becoming horrible and I often couldn't figure out what people were fighting about even because substance was being ignored so that personal attacks could be made instead.  But echo chambers are much more dangerous, imo.  And now I'm hoping people don't follow the advice I've doled out previously.
