I think I have mentioned it before, but I think it bears repeating: in today’s toxic environment of demonizing everything and everyone, Oppositelock remains the only refuge I know of on the internet. Oppo is a mix of so many different types of people who come from all walks of life, and that is what makes this blog so wonderful. There is no bubble here in Oppo.

This came up at lunch yesterday with ImmoralMinority. I had thanked him profusely for making the trek down to just spend an hour at lunch with me, and we briefly discussed how Oppo is such a civil place.

I feel like I’m rambling, and that’s probably because I am. I just want to thank you all. Personally, you have helped me to broaden my horizons. Everyone has their own tastes and they’re entitled to have those tastes without someone else shitting on them. Anywhere else on the internet, or in person, people would shit all over my decision to get two e-Golfs while keeping my Mercedes and TDI parked. But not here. You just congratulated me on my first new car purchase and asked me any questions you had. Even my coworkers didn’t do that, nor my mom’s. They just all thought I was an idiot. Because apparently, it’s kosher to think it’s stupid to not pay anything for gas or electricity and have a brand new comfortable car for a little more than I was spending in gas for one car.

So thank you Oppo.
