Anyone who likes to go after those who show kindness to wayward (like you and me) is part of that brigade, basically.“I just get the sense, sometimes, that some folks have an agenda at times and seem to want to steer a thread to meet their preconceived narrative. Perhaps I'm wrong, just my perception.”
You are not wrong IMHO, there are some posters who like to stir up ****. You will get stupid ass advice here, and you will get stellar advice also. After a few months on this board I pretty much figured out the members of the torch and pitchfork brigade. I think you have too.
