@SirLiberal Exactly all of that. And, related, why I write so much to counterbalance the digital boosterism that plagues the tech industry.

@SirLiberal … and while the first is perfectly reasonable conservative politics, the second would be a liability.

@SirLiberal You don’t seem to engage when issues or policies are discussed, but as soon as a member of your tribe is ridiculed, out you pop.
