      I LoLed! And so typical of social media.

      What I like is that the leftist commenters on FB tend to gather at The Wall Street Journal’s page.

      If they would read and learn it would not be so annoying,.

      I am so happy that I went off of all social media around a year ago. Don’t miss it a bit.

      Lacking any context, this CAN be a legitimate response to some asshole being rude to someone who IS being courteous. It could easily be intentional irony.

      I’m assuming that’s not the case, but it does point up the need for context in most interactions…. ;-)
