From Matt Taibbi's beautiful tribute to Roger Ailes:

"We are a hate-filled, paranoid, untrusting, book-dumb and bilious people whose chief source of recreation is slinging insults and threats at each other online, and we're that way in large part because of the hyper-divisive media environment he discovered."

On that stuttering autoscroll, I read somewhere that just scrolling down manually would stop the autoscroll but it doesn't. Sigh.

Any tips guidance will be hugely appreciated.

Ah, in retrospect, probly shoulda marked that as sensitive. Oh well. Better next time.

But then, aren't we all? :D
