If they are then they need to be acting like it and to be speaking up about the jerks and saying, "that stuff is unacceptable". When people are being jerks in a public forum, the only way to fight that - and to ensure that the forum is not taken to be supportive of the jerks - is to say, "that is wrong, that is unacceptable, it offends me, and you should find somewhere else to go if you want to say crap like that; we don't accept that here."

*sigh* this isn't very reasonable, its a classical fallacy, silence doesn't mean acceptance/consent/endorsement

I've resisted several times the urge to shout obscenities at the various rude participant in this thread, but it would be rather pointless, all the poop flingers are immune to both reason and insults

Don't feed the trolls only works when it's clear otherwise - through positive affirmation by a majority - that the trolls are indeed trolls. It's not clear at Perlmonks. For instance the poll is still up and unchanged.

more fallacy

something said/implied doesn't agree with my philosophy, so I will shout and be rude so they'll be like me , now be like me! If you're not with me you're against me and you can all go to hell!

Oh great, now I'm exibiting microagression, I'm so unreasonable
