Naturally, gators being gators, they manage to get themselves pretty worked up over a number of points I didn’t actually make. Gators remaining gators, there’s really no point in trying to correct them, as this will only give them more opportunities to misrepresent me.
Instead, let’s take a moment to look at some of the most highly upvoted comments in this edifying discussion that are, well, a bit more personal.

Given that to Gators will happily upvote insults and nonsense, you may wonder how exactly one might go about getting downvoted.
It may be a little hard to see, because the text is small and light grey, but this comment has negative 26 points.
Gators will forever be gators, I guess.
