It seems strange to me that XL gets such a bad rep. It takes at least two to 
make a flame war/troll work so why do others jump in with both feet. It's like 
many approaches to narcotics control ie try to stem the source, the proper 
approach is to halt the demand. Just stay silent.

Trying to call XL a net abuser is just silly and wrong. Many people have ideas 
which others consider wrong, blasphemous, dangerous, stupid etc etc etc, but 
freedom of expression is important.
