I just want to say that when the insanity of trollindundar shows up, you people brought this on yourselves...


I'm the kind of person opposed to name calling, but "trollindundar" cracked me up. And I actually like thundr, even though I think he's misguided.

Also, I'm the kind of person that likes to use logic and argument to try and bring people to my side. However, I read a study (grr, can't find it) recently that showed that ridicule was much more effective in converting people to a certain point of view. Political viewpoints can become as embedded as faith, and essentially logically unassailable. But the fear of being laughed at is so powerful that it can actually dislodge firmly held belief. Not sure if I can bring myself to do that, but now reason and logic seem like the harder way. Anyway, food for thought.
