I'm trying to make sure I don't come across as the typical strident jackass that I normally am around here.
First, by no means am I perfect, and I don't have all the answers. Nor am I in a position to tell you that your opinion is "wrong". The community aspect is vital for a host of reasons, including lifting us up in times of difficulty.
I'm just trying to present the other side in the least antagonistic way possible.
