I have good people in my life that try to remind me of things like, “invective can erase reasoned argument.” That, and painting “people as retards with a farily broad brush is going to lead to a bit of controversy.”
True that, especially when you wind up getting quoted and linked (without context) on Kottke.
To be honest, I felt bad having used the word “retard” in the first place. I should have stuck with the much less controversial “webtard”. Like it? You should buy the t-shirt.
