Yes, that's clearly _exactly_ what Mark and Paige think.

You're quite right, Vincenzo: that sort of behavior starts at "totally uncalled for" and only goes rapidly downhill from there. Some people feel that their point of view so completely overrides any other considerations that they completely lose any sense of perspective they might have ever possessed. At that point, they can justify any sort of negative, bad, _evil_ behavior to themselves. They'll try to get you fired, they'll kill your cat, they'll burn down your house, because their viewpoint is more important than _you_ are.

And friends, I'm here to tell you, that's just _crazy_.

Happily, my management, too, is more than smart enough to recognize a lunatic troll when they see one, and to take messages from such folks without any degree of seriousness whatsoever. Just as they should.
