Good work, even among men lacking all distinction, you’ve inevitably stood out as men lacking more distinction than all the rest. It’s impressive how unimpressive that is. You’re all intelligent people of great moral character who have taken very courageous stands. And, being intelligent people with no moral character at all, we’re in an ideal position to appreciate it. Just remember, the practice of positively judging internet comments is asinine. Like Olympic medals and tennis trophies, all they signify is that the owner has done something of no benefit to anyone more capably than everyone else.
