So, I’ve been reading the comments sections of posts while doing research for OKCBicyclist.com. Some of them, like the comments in this article, just make my blood boil to the point where I sometimes feel the overwhelming urge to reply. In times like that, I should remember the following quote from Neil Stephenson:
Arguing with anonymous strangers on the Internet is a sucker’s game because they almost always turn out to be—or to be indistinguishable from—self-righteous sixteen-year-olds possessing infinite amounts of free time.”
— Neal Stephenson (Cryptonomicon)
The smart move is not to read them at all.
