Since this is my intro thread, I figure it might be a good idea to ask intro questions--those that really don't warrant an independent thread--here.  So here goes. 

Question: Should I be concerned about bringing about animosity through statement of political views? 
That is to say, if I express an all around view point which is strongly disagreed with, which a cursory examination of recent posts in the politics section suggests some might not be able to understand my maintaining, and argue it persistently and effectively (subjective, I know; let's just say I'm not simply spouting off talking points), should I be concerned about being flamed, decried, ostracized, and shunned? 
Not that that bothers me too much; I would just like forewarning.

There are really two questions in this. 
1) Will you be "flamed, decried, ostracized, and shunned?"
2) And, if you are, should you be concerned by it?

I would suggest posting about whatever you feel like posting, in any terms you feel like using, and then let the reaction take care of itself.  If it is overwhelmingly negative, then you should either ignore it, decide this isn't the best place to express your views, or respond to it.  Of course, no-one can specifically answer your questions in advance of you making these posts.

Any intelligent and thought out posts are welcome. Personal attacks and general stupidity aren't.

At least to me. :P

Who's your favorite king of England?

It would be between Alfred the Great, William the Conqueror, Edward I, and Henry VII (that last one due more to my being a fan of Protestantism than anything else, though I know his motivations certainly were not theological).  They are not all of the good/interesting ones, but they are the ones good/interesting enough for me to remember them. 

These are exclusively prior to the Union of 1707, when they ceased to be the Kings of England and became the Kings of Britain. 

Cool. Yeah William the Conqueror is pretty awesome. English wouldn't be the way it is without him. Oh, and do you mean Henry VIII?

Hello!  Why are there so many people here who like the Metal genre? :(

Emo elitist teenagers tend to denounce bad music and then champion even worse music. It's a very ironic human phenomenon.
Are you calling me an emo elitist teenager?

Yes.

lol.  I'm sure the "Emo elitist teenagers" bit was a troll, but it really does annoy me when people try to subtly insult a genre of music because they don't like it.  It is, of course, beyond fair for them to say they don't like it, but saying it sucks or implying that people are lame for liking it really grinds my gears.

I know I've been guilty of this in the past, but now, I try to avoid saying those kinds of things.

Okay.

Antivirus, Ender was clearly making a joke about people who like Metal.  He wasn't referring to you at all.
I am pretty sure he was since he told me in a PM that he was just poking fun at me...

Actually, Rule is right. I wasn't making fun of you then, but I am now.

Those PMs were fun. Why did you bring them to an end? We should publish them somewhere in Off Topic.

Cool, that's what I intended to do--particularly the latter most option you gave.

Good philosophy; I hope I can expect such from others as well.

Oh, and I did mean Henry VIII.  I thought I had typed that . . . thanks for catching it.

I judge people on how they look.

For example, Joe looks stupid. It follows that Joe is stupid. QED.

One must ask oneself: "do I will trolling to become a universal law?" And then when one realizes "yes, I do will it to be such," one feels completely justified.
