Nothing specifically prompts this cartoon. Just a feature (or a bug, really) of online social life that having opinions means you will piss someone off; and if you belong to a group or several groups of people not protected by a wall of arbitrary privileges, someone you’ve pissed off will respond as venomously and as viciously as they can muster, often with verbal weapons society gave them for just such an occasion.
