It's food for thought, at least. Even if you think it's all fun and games when you berate someone on an Internet forum, baiting them because you find their reaction so humorous, sometimes the person on the other end is really upset about it.

The picture in this article reminded me very much of someone I knew in high school, and thus, this story triggered the wrong reaction from me. Wow, I just found out a lot about myself.

Time to invest in a kelvar vest.

Ludicrously, I saw an article that suggested copies of Advance Wars should be held back over this.
