Perhaps everything -- every object, word, concept, action, event, everything -- is the source of passion for someone somewhere.

I'm often surprised to find in my websurfing that there are hobbyists for the most obscure pursuits. I understand that politically charged subjects will generate controversy.

But a controversy over dental amalgams? To the extent of inspiring Wikipedia vandalism wars?

I would so never have anticipated that.

(PS - If you're passionate about the Dental Amalgam Controversy ... please don't e-mail me about it!)
