That is a choice you have voluntarily made. You have the absolute right
to use whatever MUA turns you on; however, you have no right to tell

of altering their views to fit the facts, they alter the facts to fit
their views...which can be very uncomfortable if you happen to be one
of the facts that needs altering.
