I'm mildly amused.

One of my friends posted a link to an article. While I agree with the core statement of the article (SWAT teams are to common, large, over-equipped, and over used), I disapproved of the sensationalist reporting (OMG! SWAT teams are getting items they'd buy anyways from the military!) and the use of fear mongering language in the article itself (tanks? Really? A real tank would laugh at it, insult it's mother, and then run it over. They where armored cars at best). But because I showed disdain for the delivery, I got jumped on by one of his other friends.

Since when does disagreeing with how a message is delivered the same as disagreeing with the message itself? These things amuse me. Not sure why.
