In My 20s...

...I was all over flame wars in About.com and Delphi forums.  I ran a blog called Freedom Camp, written under a nom de Web, that was pretty snarky and less-than-forgiving to what I saw as the stupidity in Bush Administration supporters and neoconservatives.  If there's anything I would do today, it would probably be to apologize to Bushies for being so sharp-tongued.  I have a better notion now of how to get things done, and while I still enjoy Sadly, No!, Eschaton, and other satirical or biting blogs, I've opted to be a better Buddhist and eschew grappling with anyone in such a way that I come across as attacking the individual...

Just how charitable are you supposed to be when criticizing the views of an opponent?
