But in Liberalland, you can witness the gang mentality in online forums

Just as you can in wingnut forums. It's the natural tendency of politics.

Re: Noah movie

I don't think 'Black Swan' held up to reality either. I didn't get so worked up about it though.

A combination of friends over there and work trips. I worked for a couple of companies that had business there from time to time.
