“Of course, in the end, the truth is somewhere in the middle.”
How delightfully accommodating. Unfortunately, there are times when people really don’t understand, and there are times when people really are dead wrong. I don’t disagree that often the truth is in between two extremes, but I dislike the reflexive bargain-making and compromise that settles most internet arguments. Let’s not patch things up just for the sake of patching things up, and murder the truth in the process.
