Hi, guys. so here are my options: navigate this minefield, or ignore it. Thoughts?

Love, your favorite AWOL commenter (ETA: OK, too oblique. Suffice to say, you guys know me but for a lot of reasons mostly involving idiots on the Internet, I've let my last handle become the lightening rod and the activist, and I've created this one so that I can bs with you guys. You might have heard of me, I'm huge in Serbia.)
