Good attitude, sir. I applaud it, and I think it's what one should strive for. I've increasingly found that, except in extremely absurd or notably vile situations, it is solipsistic to expect people to be up to one's level. Satanism is inborn, not acquired, so there's no use in being mad at most people for not being Satanic.
This is probably why I am so amiable in face-to-face encounters. When people act in generally benignly (or even, not-so-benignly) stupid or expectedly cowardly ways, I generally don't out-and-out resent them for it, because I shouldn't.
It's still possible to surprise me, though.
I'd still consider myself a misanthrope, but I don't pour a lot of coal into the fire, because that would use up my energy.
