I, personally, don't intend to descend to the level of personal insults or attacks (except, perhaps, against politicians - a class I believe deserves to be attacked).
And freedom of speech is an impotent principle that separates us from our Russian comrades.
Frankly, I also believe it can be a tool useful in exposing their misdeeds, embarrassing them enough to bring them into line with the majority of the civilized world.
I don't think the Russian people are inherently evil (as I've said before, I've enjoyed most of the contact I have had with them), but I do think they are misled.
