I regret the times I've been mean to people... It's fine to pick on people who can defend themselves and deserve it. Some people don't deserve to be picked on who I picked on, so I don't do it anymore
My goal is to goad people into saying something that ruins their life
I talk to millions of people every day. I just like it when they can't talk back.
