The thing to always remember when dealing with bullies is that at heart they're cowards. The schoolyard thug hides behind his size. The Internet bully hides behind his user-name. That's because they know they're punks. Another type, however, bullies from a sense of self righteous superiority. You know who I mean...the Utopian Progressive. Their cudgel isn't greater size, anonymity or even intelligence. It's the court system. When beaten back by an inconvenient fact, or a greater number of votes - they litigate - and in doing so stagnate the issue with an endless cycle of lawsuits and legal briefs.
Lest we forget, the root word for Twitter is Twit. Gosh, I remember when the shills of Technology were telling us all how the Brave New World of the Inter-Web would help every mother's son and daughter reach his or her maximum potential for greatness. Alas, perhaps it has.
Time was when meeting people face-to-face meant meeting them in person - on the job, in church, at school. You could tell if they dressed nice, washed behind their ears, spoke intelligently, were kind to waiters and had interesting things to say. Make no mistake, one could still be fooled, but fooling someone in real life is much more difficult that substituting someone else's photo for yours. Life wasn't always better when you had to meet people person to person, but at least is was real.
