Brexit. Trump. The latest episode of Sherlock being a pile of arse. The online community is certainly more divisive than ever, with polarised views spouting hatred from both sides.

Can any topic be safe from people getting furiously cross and caps lock stabby? Is any subject safe enough that you don’t need to have a safe-space? Can you talk about something without a person getting triggered? Can you like something controversial without being called a Nazi?

Which makes me regret writing this tweet…

I’m going to let you click through the replies to that tweet on your own, just because embedding literally hundreds of tweets about jam sandwiches will make my brain go mushy.

TL:DR Butter Vs No Butter, Jam and Ham and Cheese and Things, Folded vs Cutting. It’s all a bit mad.

Anyway, that was a fun hour yesterday.
