actually you could've responded without looking bad. fate provided you with an opportunity to actually show that it might be plausible that you are a decent person in real life and you utterly blew it.The central question is why you call people "interloper" for offering their opinion but it doesn't apply to you. And if people don't want "nastiness" when they're going through a rough time maybe it would be wiser not to start something. I'm well aware that I can't respond without looking bad which is exactly why I chose not to and was pulled into it anyway.
Why are you even here when you should be out taking selfies on the beach?
