I've read through the "mean" version, and I have to say, all I'm learning is that people have all kinds of ideas and sometimes hold differing beliefs as they grow older. My Internet trail reveals me to be, at various times: A libertarian, an anarchist, pro-gun, anti-gun, a douchebag, a feminist, a nativist, an anarchist again, and at least once- a complete idiot. I can't look at years of Internet posts and decide I know what someone thinks.
I'm irked by one thing in particular in the "mean" article, where they discuss Glenn Greenwald defending white supremacists as an attorney. He spends a paragraph talking about how alarming it is, then goes on to say, "but I guess that's not a big deal." Then why fucking mention it in the first place? It's a transparent attempt to color Greenwald a certain way before actually getting into the substance that's supposed to support the argument. He was right about one thing: It isn't relevant.
I do know why Snowden said he did it; and frankly there's not much creepy about that. Is he my saint? No, I wouldn't have worked for the NSA in the first place. Does he probably disagree with me on some things. Sure. Big deal. At least he didn't rape someone.
