"Mass movements can rise and spread without belief in a God, but never without belief in a devil."
— Eric Hoffer, The True Believer
Batman: He frequents the "I Hate Hawkgirl" bulletin boards.
Hawkgirl: That doesn't mean...boards? How many are there?
Batman: Fifty-seven. Web rings. Unaffiliated sites number in the hundreds...
Hawkgirl: Forget I asked!

"Love fades. Hate can last forever."
"With American Gods, I found myself having written this peculiarly divisive book. I really hadnít expected the idea that it had a solid audience of people who really didnít like it for one reason or another, and who were incredibly vocal and articulate about why they didnít like it."
"My very brief acquaintance with Tumblr is that it's a place where people who hate me gather."
"I prance about the kitchen like Michael Corleone, and just when I think I've gone legitimate, just when I think I'm out of the business, Smallville sends a helicopter to crash the meeting of the families.
'Just when I thought I was out, they PULL ME BACK IN!'
(clutches heart, falls to the kitchen tiles in his bath robe, and tries desperately to justify dating Sophia)."
"The Secret Rival exists in the shadows. I never actually see him, but he is my worst enemy and my most faithful reader, popping up every now and then to reassure everyone I still ruin his life. With every article he continues to read, he hates me more and further hates the world that allows me to exist. More than anything, though, he hates the taste of his giant Me poster... but he must be ready for our first kiss.
It's hard to really get invested in a verbal war with people like this. I mean this kid has been working his rage up for God knows how long, and I've only had a couple sentences to catch up. Plus, I can't really tell a guy to suck my balls when he's already lurking under my toilet in a wetsuit screaming at them while I shit on him."
"Now do you want me to tell you how many messages/comments/emails we get from fans telling a writer to 'kill yourself' because said writer wrote a joke they didn't like? When I ban them, they always act confused as to why...As for me, I haven't thought about suicide in a long time, not since high school, when a guy talked me out of it, though to this day I doubt he realizes it. So, I lived on to wind up with a job where one of my tasks is to ban people who follow him from one comment section to another telling him he's not funny and should kill himself. Is that ... irony? Shit, I don't think English has a word for what that is."
