Guardian comment’s page

Yesterday, I made a few comments on a Guardian article about Liam Fox and Adam Werrity. Essentially I responded to a comment from another commentor called kvlx387. A few comments later, someone called grubbedout aimed a comment at me in which they accused me of being a Tory Troll and telling me to go back to reading the Daily Mail. I immediately realised that they had probably aimed the comment at the wrong person and were probably intending to aim it at kvlx387. This did indeed turn out to be the case as they later apologised. What I found slightly amusing, but a little disturbing, was that 56 people recommended their comment despite the fact that it was clearly aimed at the wrong commentor. This seems to indicate that people simply quite like aggressive comments accusing others of being a Tory Troll and telling them, in no uncertain terms, to go away.
