Re: err...

Have you been on the internet lately?

Well exactly. I was thinking that in my first days online in the 90s someone posting either:

The USA were rather late to WWII (7-ish words)

You'd all be speaking German if it wasn't for us (10 words)

Was enough to derail many online conversations. And a well placed "Fake News" or "Bollocks to Brexit" is pretty effective nowadays.

"Look, I came here for an argument!"

"Oh sorry. This is abuse. You want next door."
