Not one for subtlety, I guess

I guess it's true that on the internet, without access to body language and voice inflection, part of the message gets lost.

When I first read Granger say "Ron Paul is a Neoliberal!" I found the statement to be so whacky that I knew she was being sarcastic. Especially since this typically articulate person did not elaborate to actually try and convince others that this new label is accurate.

People here at the DP want to defend Ron Paul's character and spread his message. This includes Granger. Knowing how many people rely on Wikipedia as a resource, she's bringing up the fact that these mislabels are deliberately being set up to direct freedom-loving people who want to learn more about Dr. Paul and his ideas AWAY from the truth.

Enough of us send enough time on the internet each day, doing nothing of real importance, that if we wanted to, we COULD battle the deliberate disinfo on a resource that a lot of innocent people use. That is what Granger is getting at.
