You're making quite a few assumptions in your post.
It seems as though conjuring up assumptions is an
ongoing theme in this thread.

I'm not directing my post toward you, Daniel.
You asked a reasonable question. I'm referring to
the nasty people who believe they have a right to
jump to conclusions, based on information that a
single question provides them. Nothing more.

I state that I drive on sidewalks. I don't state
the context, the facts, or any other information
on which to support why I mention this, or what
meanings it may have.

As a result of posting my statement, dozens of people
who believe they have the right to judge me, conclude
who I am as a person. Based on their irrational assumptions,
they somehow get the impression that they're entitled
to be the morally superior warriors of forum justice.
They fabricate a hypothetical statement to cast me as
the villain, and that's where it begins. Next, they
pursue justice by attacking the evil villain. What
I don't understand is that they don't use virtue
to condemn this evil-doer. They spew hatred at this
product of their imagination. How can a person be
the moral authority, if they go about pursuing
internet forum justice by using hate? Isn't that odd?

These people are looking for someone to harass, insult,
condemn, and provoke. Hiding behind a virtuous facade
provides them with what they think is justification to
go about their reprehensible behavior. Who are these people
fooling?

Why doesn't this kind of thing happen to me in public?
Cowardice? No, they can't possibly be cowards. Hiding
behind a screen, using anonymity, they exercise their
mighty powers of good over evil.

Once they leave their home, their power instantly disappears.
These brave social warriors don't behave this way in public.
They're too scared. Even on the internet, they must gang up on
the unrighteous evildoer. Dozens of other sinless
warriors pile on and mob mentality ensues. See,
it's easy to defer culpability when every other
person is involved in the hate fest.

I wish they would just leave their home and try this in public
to the face of a human being whom they don't have the
courage to make eye contact with. I know it,
they know it, and others know it.

Absolute cowardice without a keyboard and
this is how they deal with their well-founded
lack of self-worth. If any cowards out there would
like to prove me wrong, please record a video so
everyone can watch you urinate your pants.
Am I right? Yes, I am right. The cowards know
exactly who they are. Good thing there are no
cowards in this forum. I'm going to have to
search elsewhere for these barbaric animals.
