I can be pretty harsh on the ol' internet. In fact, as direct as I can be in person, I can be more, um, forthright about my opinions and even blunter when it comes to blog posts or comment threads. But I've never been banned. I've never threatened anyone. I've never had to change my IP address and screen name in order to keep commenting at a place that clearly doesn't want me around.
So here's to you Bob/Fred/El, you massive douchebag, you.
