I don't think ignorance is becoming more rampent +Kristine Rodriguez
I think that the world of computers is just giving these unfortunate few a free, world wide soap box to stand on.
I think our only defense is to believe that most everone has good in them somewhere. It may be a bit Polyana-ish of me but I do believe that good will come to those who work at treating everyone they meet well and go out into the world with a good attitude. A smile can be just as contaigious as a bad attitude.
Good will triumph over evil!
