A Commenter's Apologia (to whatever needs rebutting)

What do we do but take light-hearted posts seriously, and dark-hearted posts lightly? You hath disgraced him, and hindered him half a million; laughed at his losses, mocked at his gains, scorned his nation, thwarted his bargains, cooled his friends, heated his enemies; and what’s your reason?

He is a BoingBoing commenter. Hath not a BoingBoing commenter eyes? hath not a BoingBoing commenter hands, organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions? fed with the same posts, hurt with the same sticks and stones, subject to the same imaginary diseases flesh is prone to, healed by the same apple-cider vinegar, warmed and cooled by the same winter and summer which have remained roughly the same anthropocene-epoch claims to the contrary, as a lurker is? If you prick us, do we not bleed snarky comments? if you tickle us, do we not ROFLMAO? if you poison us, do we not die? and if you wrong us, DO WE NOT POST IN ALL-CAPS SPEWING SEMI-RELEVANT GIF AND YOUTUBE LINKS?
