I mean WTF writers, find a better way.
If I post on a message board and you don't like what I have to say, there is usually an ignore function.
If its on social media, there are ways to block my content from infesting your stream.
And yet, people occasionally feel the need to send me a special note to tell me they think I'm an asshole or, in the particular case that prompted this post to tell me that I am "reality averse."
This was in the context of discussing the Red Sox disappointing 2014 season. Sometime said something about fighting the ship and I said the ship didn't need righting. The organization was making (mostly) good decisions and reasonable gambles. Sometimes it doesn't work out, but if you keep making good decisions, it's going to work out more often than not.
And apparently I'm an asshole for dismissing a "well thought out dissenting opinion" and it's doubling down on the condescension to point out that the opinion wasn't well thought out.
Here's the thing. It's not my fault you're a small minded reactionary dipshit. If you don't want me to criticize your ideas, have good ideas. If you don't want me to dismiss your ideas out of hand, make them ideas that aren't stupid.
If your idea is that an organization needs to be fixed just because of some sort term setbacks (and yes, one season of a team's performance is short term) then you have a stupid idea.
Especially when the team in question won the championship the year before.
The truth matters, folks, the truth matters.
Don't take a big breath before and after you say something, we hear it and it's incredibly annoying.
