It doesn't help that the internet allows people to share their opinions without having to back it up. I don't blame technology or anything but it really helps the trolls come from out under the woodworks. I would imagine that these are a small percentage of the population and doubt that they would have such a strong stance if they had to defend their position in person. Their have been a lot of studies on the matter and at the end of the day I think that the Olmypics help bring people together.

I love that I can come on HFOil and talk about the Olympics
