anyone who gives a crap (for real), took the 2 micrograms of effort to show up here. I may have been unanimously out-voted on a ton of stuff, but the reason I have a seat at the table is I sat down. More than can be said for that whiner quoted above

melody: IMO, it is important in a sense that we maintain an accurate account of events. Interpretations and story-telling are something else. You'll notice that not only do those kinds of messages mislead people about the events (and paint a particular picture), but they create unnecessary social polarity built on top misinformation - people feed off that. For what it is worth, we can call it out if it seems useful, or just don't waste further energy.

Important to separate one's or group's opinion, perception, experience, collected anecdotal evidence and so forth from others', and not slip it through as facts as if everyone is in agreement.
