"You're the laughingstock of the whole town."
"You're middle-aged now, alone and shunned."
"Your "call to arms" is a joke and we will laugh at it, as always."
"And you will end up with your pants pulled over your head and stuck heads-down in a trash can."
As I said in my comment that started this discussion of Slashdot reactions to abuse (+5), people who comment about abuse often don't respond in a manner guided by logic. Commenters often use these avoidances, and others:
2) Change the subject. Respond to the new subject with an attack on that subject.
3) Give excuses.
4) Say that positive change is impossible.
