gDNA isn't about taking people who deserve it down a notch or six. Besides, I prefer to do that without resorting to schoolyard name-calling. Much better to calmly point out the flaws in their arguments and make them seem like the raving lunatics.
That article wasn't about being an asshole to people because they deserve it, it was about how to keep trolls
from destroying the internet as it currently exists.
