Great quote by Nicholas Gurewitch

Ion magazine has a great interview with Nicholas Gurewitch, the creator of The Perry Bible Fellowship web comic. This quote in particular struck me as insightful:
"I think there's a distinct type of person that feels the need to broadcast their feelings online. And the more I think, those people who want to make their opinions known, or who shout the loudest, are probably the ones you should listen to the least. In most cases."
Anyone who has had the misfortune of spending time reading online fora can sympathize with this. I think it is safe to say that, taken as a whole, Youtube comments represent the single greatest concentration of human bigotry and ignorance ever assembled.
