You have GOT to stop trying to paint yourself as some victim here, Hybris. I know you're not him, but you're starting to sound a bit like CreepyThinMan (what with all the criticisms of groupthink/hivemind, which is to be expected in a community brought together by similar interests). If you're going to go against the grain a bit and don't want to deal with the aggressive pushback, you're going to have to change up your approach a bit. There was a good way to bring up your qualms with the 'calls for Zimmerman's head.' A snarky-sounding quip about how nobody was there didn't do you any favors. Nor did your previous stance in a past thread.
Look, I understand I'm going "against the grain". At the end of the day, what people think on CHUD.com is pretty inconsequential to me. I'm sure it is to everyone else as well. And I remember perfectly well that I called a bunch of whiners "a bunch of whiners" in a previous thread, something like six months ago.
I also perfectly recall that their response to me, in that particular thread, was "YOU WEREN'T THERE SO YOU DON'T HAVE ALL THE FACTS".
If I am not fit to judge a situation based on the evidence presented (since I was not, in fact, there), why is anybody else?
