Q is for quibble and quarrel

Today, I made a boo-boo. I am cranky, probably hormonal, and I should have stayed off the internet.

Or at least, NOT engaged in on-line 'discussions'. Particularly, those involving politics or the demonisation of Gina Rinehart.

But no.

Today, I acted like this was my first ever day on the internet, and I'd never come across trolls before.

I argued my point, and only served to prove the maxim

arguing with an idiot on the internet only proves there are two idiots.

I ended up apologising, at which point the troll said, "Oh, I'm bored now, bye bye." thus proving

a) yes, troll

and b) I wasted an hour of my morning.

I am desperately hoping not to compound the issue tomorrow. Might look at funny cat videos instead.
