    Spouse says that people like that “aren’t happy unless they’re stirring the pot.” Neither she nor I cares to spend more than the minimum with them in the vicinity.

    I’m not gonna rile up on Rat’s tweet because I don’t have a Twitter account.

    Funny how some people will say “I’ll never go to Twitter because it’s all so negative.” and then come here and comment something scummy about someone in a round office or holding a wooden hammer…on a comic strip. (shrugs shoulders)

    I have sat on many a board where there was always that one person who seemed to thrive on stirring the pot. Not to achieve anything of substance, just to get everyone riled up. I even went to seminars on how to minimize the effect those folks had on boards. This behavior is not new to social media, just amplified by it.

    I’m pretty sure now all controversial subjects are censored now. Twitter’s biggest mistake was to oust Trump. Without him there, they have far less to go berserk about.

    Rat must be posting on FUNKY WINKERBEAN,which has more haters than any comic strip alive.

    In other news,Amy Schneider resigns from JEOPARDY,saying she’s getting bored with all that winning.

    Seeking a new challenge,she announced her intention to swim the English Channel upside down.

    It is possible to utilize the tools of trolling for a positive purpose. When you provide the right kind of cognitive dissonance, the subsequent resolution can yield new levels of enlightenment.
