-> ''"It seems like every other week, you get a news story about people being dicks on both ends of the spectrum. And that is WhyWeCantHaveNiceThings. We can't use the Playroom as advertised because people are being dicks. We can't have a VideoGame/MightyNo9 forum because people are being dicks. We can't like VideoGame/GoneHome because [[FanHater people will]] be dicks to you about it. And the dicks go both ways - we can't have a good VideoGame/SimCity game, or a good X-Rebirth game or good video game hosting because the people involved are being dicks! Is this really what the game industry is turning into - a bunch of dicks?''"

->"I have the right to criticize other people's things and beliefs because I have a right to criticize other people's things and beliefs. Just as other people, including the hypocritical moron who calls herself "LadyLilyMalfoy", have the right to criticize my things and beliefs. That's the great thing about Freedom of Expression: it cuts both ways. As I say elsewhere in this screed, your right to hold a silly-ass opinion in no way prevents the opinion from being silly. Nor does it protect you from having someone else come up and point out how silly-assed your opinion is. So... to everyone who thinks... or rather doesn't think... just like this LLM person, kiss my wide white ass.

->"And for the record, my wife didn't leave me. She died of cancer after a prolonged and extremely painful illness. But hey, thanks for taking an interest, you insensitive bitch."

Death and rape threats over a comic book movie?
