Something that's been bothering me for a while is the need that some people have to denigrate others completely out of the blue and with no apparent justification.
Last year a student at my high school was killed. Walking down a country road at night and got hit by a driver who didn't see him. Commenters to the local paper felt the need to claim he was on drugs.
Not to long ago a fellow dumped his motorcycle on an on-ramp locally. Commenters immediately started denigrating his riding ability even though they didn't know him from Adam. The reality, four bikes went down on the same on ramp in the space of a month. Clearly a dangerous situation and not an issue with the rider.
Captain Capitalism gives me a shout out and best wishes (which I really appreciate) after reading about my accident and the first two commenters make reference to Darwin awards and my lack of experience, suggesting I should be riding a trike. Now, I honestly don't care what they think, I am pretty thick skinned, and I know I am a good rider who made some mistakes, but I am just puzzled as to why some people's first inclination seems to be to make some disparaging comment.
