To the point, I share with you today my own experience with Haters.
A few weeks ago, I wrote a piece entitled The Ubuntu FOSS Community: Merely Chumps on the Outside Looking In. Now, mind you, most of my regular readership do take what I write in stride and the comments reflect that. (Image credit: nocookie.net)
To have used the word 'chump' is quite appropriate; here's a definition:
"What is objectionable, what is dangerous about extremists is not that they are extreme but that they are intolerant. The evil is not what they say about their cause, but what they say about their opponents."
