282. Okay, here's an example.

Ignorance is not hereditary and there's no reason that one need suffer with it. Then again, if absolute ignorance of reality is within your comfort zone, by all means, stay with it.

That paragraph was not aimed at you. It was nothing more than a random demonstration of how to reply to someone obnoxious without breaking the DU rules. No one would get a post deleted for the above paragraph. The only down side is that, whoever that paragraph is aimed at would, in all probability, not "get it."

Although my OP was about rudeness and cruelty toward other DUers, there really are disgusting or despicable posts that require a response. And I prefer to keep my responses in the realm of the above example (although it is much milder than actual ones I have posted). Of course, there are times when all of us go completely nuts over something we've read and totally lose it. No matter. Our "insanely angry" replies will be deleted within minutes.
