Hi Kyle, I think that it's worth us all putting effort into being friendly and polite on this forum, especially when we disagree with one another. I didn't find your first comment informative or polite, and just commented to explain why I down-voted it.

Thanks Ben, for telling us that communities of do-gooders should be considerate. But I wasn't inconsiderate. If you linked an article titled "why communities of do-gooders should be so insanely fragile that they can't handle a small bit of criticism" then it would be relevant.

Yeah, and now I'm commenting to explain why I downvoted yours, and how you are failing to communicate a convincing point. If you found my first comment "rude" or impolite then you've lost your grip on ordinary conversation. Saying "meh" is not rude, yikes.
