Sweeping Generalizations (1)

superyooser (100462) | about 10 years ago | (#10009642)

You made a lot of sweeping generalizations in that matter-of-fact way that drives people crazy. It didn't help that you were so vague, especially by not clarifying whether you were talking about American right-left politics (you mentioned Limbaugh's comments about Democrats) or the universal right-left spectrum ("Many mention the right is less tolerant. Extremist regimes making the best case."), which includes more disparate extremes such as Nazis and Fascists. If I were metamoderating the moderation, I would rate it fair.

Well, let's hope you don't mod it. :)

Given the context, i think it was fine, even if poorly written.
