That's fascinating. I've seen that response quite a few times on this forum. The reaction of some here to differing views can be passive aggressive to full out violent. Interesting tidbit you brought forth. Now I suppose I will see those who react in that way as drug addicts. I wonder if there is a 12 step program for those sad people.
