, it is SO hard sometimes. Especially when I feel like it's not just arguing and I might have a good or unique point or two to share. But when I go to the effort to think about and formulate a response, it's rarely as well received as I hope it will be and I often find myself wondering why I used up a part of my life just to yell into the noise. Of course it goes both ways. It's those stupid productive conversations that throw things off. If internet conversations were all hate and bile, it would be much easier to stay completely away from them.
