The crimes are so socially heinous that the reader immediately swears off the behavior and rushes to comment and separate themselves from the wrongdoers. I hate 98% of opinion posts. rarely write opinion posts because they are the blogging equivalent of smoking weed. Like weed, they seem harmless, but after a while, they make you lazy, dumb, and boring. The real problem is that it takes a great deal of skill to write a credible and logical opinion post. Anything less is just an adult temper tantrum. Excellent.
