And while lots of folks were quick to call DC out on these designs and DC actually managed to respond without sounding like complete tools, the discourse was the expected level of stupid.

So, rather than exhaust myself by having 800 conversations, I present a visual reminder of why common derailing techniques and many user comments are, well, stupid.
