You would make an excellent evil dictator.

A benevolent dictator like Linus Torvalds knows better, in the LKML
"fire hazards" are not removed, they are ignored before any flames go
up. This achieves the best of both worlds; if the person is truly
vicious, nothing happens, but if there's something to it, a person
that doesn't offend so easily might have a fruitful discussion, while
the rest ignore the thread.

In a flamewar everyone is guilty. Apparently you never learned that
"but he started it!" is not a defense worthy of an adult, hell, even
most children know that.
