We all know that the folks who comment on web sites are not a random selection of humanity. They tend to have stronger views than the general public and on sites that have intense political views they are commonly nasty towards their political opponents. An anonymous conservative author who writes under the pseudonym Leften Wright about being oppressed by liberals has just authored an article pitching his book. The article claims that liberals are (uniquely) rude to conservatives. Conservatives and liberals periodically write this article demonizing their opponents for the alleged crime of demonizing their opponents. As befits the genre, the anonymous author relies on innuendo and ad hominem attacks that generalize to his/her political opponents based on slights to the author. None of these personal slights can be tested given the author’s anonymity.
