In reply to Katherine Noyes
++ What Linux Rants said, I disagree wholeheartedly with those who claim the more popular linux becomes then the more malware we will see, Linux IS especially popular on those machines that hold up large sections of the Internet, ask Google,Yahoo,Amazon,Facebook,The Stock exchange, to name but a few. Not to mention the lions share of mobile devices (tens of millions). Of course anything on a network can be exploited, but Linux will never be raped and pillaged the way Windows is. We can see the code we run, others are less fortunate.

What best describes your attitude toward social networks and politics?
The value of engaging in serious political discourse outweighs the negatives.
Most of the political conversations seem overheated and ignorant.
Social networks provide a lot of very good political information from reliable sources.
Almost every political post I see is skewed or totally fake.
Political interactions on social networks simply mirror those in the real world.
Social networks remove inhibitions, bringing out the worst in people and politics.
