Dan S. comments:
I'm glad that Greg decided to stay on the forum (and to stay feisty).
As far as unfriending folks on Facebook -- I have somewhere around 3,000 "friends" on that wonderful Satan's playpen of a shallow social media site. My only rule on there is that I'll put up with almost any differing opinion (i.e. differing from my own opinion or from sanity itself) but if they decide to insult me, they're gone. I simply don't have time or interest in sponsoring the abuse.
Some months ago on Facebook I did a posting (well, a rant . . . I was fighting a kidney stone at the time, but that's no excuse) calling Greta Thunberg a "brat" and promptly received hundreds of personal attacks, insults, and more than a handful of threats. A few of the offended promised to burn my books and some of them contacted my publisher(s) and demanded that they quit publishing my work. It was my first personal experience with the new Cancel Culture and while it didn't much bother me on a personal level, it did give me a frightening glimpse of how venomous social media trolls can be and how infinitely empowered they've (falsely) come to believe they are.
The only thing I've strongly reacted to from the last few months of opinions on this forum -- other than my pleasure that people I really enjoy have continued to post here -- was the statement by one person that "I have no problem with [Adam] Schiff"
I despise that pop-eyed liar and heir to the Joseph McCarthy Dangerous Demagogue Award so much that I'd go 15 rounds with any purebred, full-time Trump Hater who presumes to give that snake-weasel Schiff even the benefit of a doubt. This is also one of the reasons that I don't jump into the (usually wonderfully civil and often enlightening) posts that have continued on this forum.
I hope the forum itself lives long and prospers. And ditto to its faithful interlocutors.
