See, that's the problem with the Internet. There are no nonverbal cues so people constantly misread each other's intent, and that's a constant problem for folks whose mode of conversation includes offhand snarky or sardonic or deadpan remarks, because inevitably someone's going to assume you're "making a big deal" or had some passionate emotional investment in what you said. People online just take each other too seriously and get too defensive.
This is hysterical. You teach the course on taking a single off-hand remark and running with It paragraph after paragraph.
Travel's fatal to prejudice, bigotry, narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things can't be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's life.
