Well, I've gotten pretty much the expected responses on the other forum, and from the expected parties. The forum is primarily about wine and food, which is why I joined it to begin with (before I came to FTF).

Several commentors had doubts as to the letter's authenticity, and questioned why the names of the signers were not revealed; one said an opinion by an anonymous group of ex-military folks carried no more weight than anyone else (Commentator claims to have spent 5 years in the military carrying an assault rifle, so he "knows one when I see one". I didn't even waste my time replying to them, as it wouldn't make any difference.
"Well, we're all victims of our own gene pool. Someone must have peed in yours." - Walter Bishop, from Fringe.

"Then tell me this: Why would you want to hang around people that get uncomfortable, or even scared, about that kind of thing?" "Maybe to feel normal," I said. He laughed. "Normal's not all it's cracked up to be." "You think?" "Hell, I know." - from Spirits In The Wires, by Charles de Lint.

Great letter. What I'd expect from SF. The people that need to read it won't.

I had seen this linked in a Facebook post last night. I in turn copied and pasted it to my wall then shared it top a few people to make sure it was getting to more people. I have a feeling this will as they say in the media Go viral.
