The other day I lambasted some fool for not only advocating giving drugs to children to keep them calm, but making up information along the way about said medication.

What was the result? The clown gets modded up as 'informative', and im a troll.

What can we learn from this? Possibly that people who read /. dont bother to read the boxes that their cold medication comes in. Or perhaps they are too busy taking to much of it. Its kinda frightening.
