I deal with the same thing Lance does, although not at a global level. Almost any advanced athlete gets attacked for taking some magic pill, even when it's almost certainly not the case with Lance. He's been studied to death, and he just is an amazing human machine optimized for cycling races.
Last week, I was repeatedly attacked here by MikeMikeMike and even though I've explained that I weighed 175# in high school; that I was studied in my 20's, and so on, he still made baseless, unprovoked attacks. For whatever reason, folks like that try to take it away. I suppose it's the sad side of being an achiever in a particular area.
I had one guy, MikePhil, and MikePhilPerez, and mikephilperez, who has spewed venom at me on this site for nearly two years. Logan, flex89, was in touch with Chris, the owner of RealJock, last week, and we were successful in getting MikePhil bumped twice for his hate speech and slurs. There's a huge difference between passionate discourse and name calling / hate speech / slander . (On a side note, Logan messaged Chris, "Mike Phil is back, in lower case!" LMAO)
There comes a point, just like Lance did in the interview linked to above, where you say "enough." There comes a point, where your best efforts to maintain decorum fall apart, and you say "this is unacceptable."
