    Loved the outcome described in the “Navigating the shitters” article.
    Good to see hate turned into something that is a message against hate.

    Each time I read about such people doing shitty things, I wonder “What is wrong with those people? Why do they show so much hate?”

    The one on “People did that” is excellent.
