Thanks Mags. I had fun with it. Also, writing to another troll who apparently spent umpteen hours developing a response to a piece I did on food. He was apparently so upset with me and my reasoning that he invested one hell of a lot of time simply to prove me wrong. Can you see a large L forming in the air? Another guy, someone who took issue with something I said about salt, took the time to respectfully offer other viewpoints. The other cretin was flailing me publicly. This is my response:

This particular guy has perhaps one follower. Look, I’m not Shannon Ashley, but I have dedicated folks who read my work and honor me by taking the time to write, correct, suggest, guide, and educate. The hair on the back of my neck rises when Billy Bob has decided he knows what I meant, what I thought, and what my motivations were. What breathless arrogance. On anyone’s part, that any person would make any assumptions about what is going on in any other person’s mind at any time. We simply cannot know. And because of that, it is best to assume good intent until said human demonstrates otherwise with behavior. Like….trolling.
