One certainly can't please everyone.
What I find indicative of this phenomenon is that a harmless one-liner, amusing to most, was decried as racist by an anonymous commenter earlier today.
These are the same kind of hate-mongering, pathetic individuals who routinely spew venom, bile, and anger on Kos. Their desire to be patently offensive, boorish, and destructive towards anyone who disagrees with them reflects poorly upon the entire blogsophere.
I made a big deal out of this because this phenomenon occurs all too frequently in activist circles. We're the only ones who can stop it.
