Wow, someone just called me willfully stupid on the internet. It's not the internet without hostility and wank, right?

Pretty much. It's a shame. I remember reading an article a while back on how trolls are killing the internet (I wish I could remember the title and location), and it made the point when people are put off enough they will simply leave, or disengage from any meaningful interaction and just stick with dirty pictures and the weather forecast. Sigh.

Yeah, whoops, i didn't phrase that well. The article was about trolls, but I think that insults, namecalling, personal attacks and flat-out hostility from people who aren't trolls can be just as damaging. Trolls may be shrugged aside after a while and some distance, but getting that kind of treatment from someone who purports to be a fellow good citizen of the internet always upsets me, at least, just as much if not more.

(also, I dunno, I don't think people ever deserve insults like that. Well, maybe sometimes, but I can't imagine you saying something to deserve that kind of reaction.)
