You know what is most alarming?

The name calling, personal attacks and complete unwillingness to accept that others are allowed to have opinions that differ from their own. I have encountered this before, on fb, mostly during Ron Paul's campaign where supporters were viciously attacked, seemingly unprovoked by other fb members. Normal discourse was met with a negativity that you could almost feel through the computer. These attackers shared similarities in the way they spoke, the insults they chose to use and their unwillingness to accept logical arguments or even to agree to disagree. As if their intention was to shame or mock you out of your opinion. I can sense the same is being allowed to happen here and that sort of divisiveness is going to destroy this once tight knit community. I can't imagine they are anything but trolls trying to destroy this site by creating disharmony.
