    What makes you say that? (No, I haven't done a lot of these things, but only thought about it. Still, what makes you say that?)

    I'm writing in terms of why people would ignore what uberfurher says but not ignore what Sona says. Sona, when describing views, describes acting on them. Whether or not he is talking out of his ass or not, the presented version certainly does, and that will tick people off. Similarily, since uberfurher does not describe acting on the views, it ticks people off a lot less, and gives the impression that the views were chosen more out of some try at making an identity, or to associate with something seemingly powerful (A sort of "teen angst" way of acting), rather than being a set of views that will be acted on.

    Proteanmix has a good point here. I would say for me that Uber's comments seem so shocking and overdone that I just assume he's putting us on in some way, but if he isn't then that's a whole different thing.
