    Umm, the last line doesn’t scan. It has too many syllables.

    That’s one mansplain for today. Need to do 7 more, and 8 each day for the next 4 days. That’s too hard! How do those courageous professional MRA’s ever keep up?

    Thanks for making the 2nd most annoying Christmas song even more annoying by wrecking the meter. :-) Somehow that doesn’t seem like a crime on par with ceaseless harassment and death threats.

    DMs?

    You forgot concern trolls.

    Last year has seen a lot of online harassment of ndn activists too. Seems that /b/ is now the model for activism. Or that other thing, asshattery.
