The body of the first post (describing the thread as a diary) was just two sentences... not much of a rant by most internet standards. It was turned into a debate by others

I've been in an almost-wreck on so many occassions because of women driving like this, so I'd like to keep a diary here of future experiences just as a counter to the kind of claptrap above which we're now having pushed at us.
Those first two sentences are textbook examples of a rant. Yes, you then say you'll keep a diary, but it's a carefully constructed one-sided diary, much more agenda-driven tirade than honest recording.

That's why you got the response you did.

Well I consider the 'body' of the first post to have been the paragraph of two sentences beginning with the one "I've been in...". If you want to split hairs then the actual first line of that post was simply a short, disapproving exclamation... and I remember from before that you took exception to my use of this word "bloody"... so if this is the nub of what you consider "nasty" then we've covered that already: it's a UK colloquialism often used informally to emphasise a point... not always & only as a swear-word.

I agree that it was agenda-driven... my agenda was to counter another, finger-wagging and lecturing agenda

I was thinking women drivers could have been distracted by the suns reflection. hehe

When? I never thought about it one way or another, and never really cared. Most Americans don't have a clue about the word. I remember one complaint a very long time ago - before I even knew who you were - saying that it is a 'bad' word, but it's not on our list and I still don't care, so no, that's not why I brought it up. Mainly what got me was the open hostility I thought I was seeing. As I said, if not for that I never would have replied in the first place.

Fair enough, and citing examples ad infinitum is fine with me. My complaint was how one-sided your examples were. It looked like a lot of anger and rage to me. Maybe I'm wrong, but I respond to what I see, or to what I think I see. Either way, I'm done. You win.

Hello everybody:
I am new to the site. I started playing with submarine simulators a few months ago and find it fasinating. I've tried Silent Hunter 3,4,and 5; got the Steam bundle, but so far my favourite has been SH3.
I look forward to participating in the community,learn and share my knowledge.
Take care
