I asked you to "please not misunderstand" - seems you did

You told Shark that "keyboard warriors don't count." I contend they do.

I think it's pretty fair to say that you just took that out of context. The PROOF is in every reply I've made on this thread starting with the very first one which stated why I think "CISPA" is so important. I said, "Internet regulation/communication is possibly the biggest threat to liberty in this day and age." So now you take ONE sentence that seems to have struck a nerve with you, while disregarding everything else I've said??? Amazing. If I truly felt that way, I'd be a hypocrite and wouldn't have posted THIS in my previous reply to you:
They both certainly serve their purpose. I've spent many hours myself "battling" on the keyboard in the simple hopes that debating/commenting on an open forum gets people to THINK and start questioning.

And I'm also sure many people found their way through this site by "word of mouth" through the internet. What I'm saying is don't just think that'll cut it.

So I guess that didn't count for anything, huh?

Again, I understand your frustration, but I'm not sure that being argumentative is going to rally support in your direction.

On the contrary, I see nothing wrong with that. It seems that's the usual "reaction" when people don't agree with someone else's point of view - that they're being "argumentative". I'd like to think that members of this community are above that. Argument, discussion, debate, they're all the sharing of ideas and opinions. Remember what site you're on and who libertarians are. We like to analyze and question everything. It's a big part of being a critical thinker. It's a real shame that you're not seeing this more as just a difference of opinion shared between parties that may be beneficial instead. As I told shark previously; It's not about "winning" the argument, or even "rallying" support. It's about getting people to THINK and look at things from a different perspective. You'll come to find that sometimes it's good to take a step back and reflect.
