But is it always necessary to engage them? You seem to have a knack for engaging the critics. Why is that? Would they not, according to your own standards, be likely to be /less/ hostile if they did not always have someone like you come up and brand them as immoral and evil and whatnot when they lose their patience after spending a lot of time trying to help someone? Have you no empathy for those who find that their goodwill is abused by these morons, only for the morons who so abuse it when they are criticized for it? Perhaps you create more morons by defending them? -- Erik Naggum, Oslo, Norway Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
