Ha! If by 'whining' you mean complaining about the current political situation, you are without doubt the biggest whiner in Waygook's history. It's not even close.
Constructive criticism is not whining. Calling out liars and thieves is not whining.

Carping connies, like yourself, whine the same way dishonest don does, always trying to blame someone else for his wrongdoing.

Donald Trump isn’t going to read waygook.org ... nor will anyone who has any interaction with him ... so your thoughts and opinions don’t make a damn bit of difference.

And not everyone on here is American either so they're not really that interested. Why don't you whine about Boris Johnson being a racist or something occasionally, just for variety's sake?

Better to stay away from national politics completely. None of us are in a position of any real power, meaning our mental energy thinking about it won’t lead to any positive change. Just an annoyance.

Our votes don’t matter on a small scale. Nor do dozens, hundreds, thousands, etc. (the upper limit of the number we could possibly hope to influence in our lowly station). Statistically and rationally it’s better to ignore all politics.

You could spend time reading about politics then cast a vote that doesn’t affect the outcome ... or forget about politics and use that time in a more productive way.

James Carville’s famous phrase from Bill Clinton’s early 90s campaign, “It’s the economy, stupid!”, reflects a conventional wisdom that voting is primarily about spending money wisely.

In recent years, however, a growing body of evidence has shown that our political behaviour is governed more by emotions and less by rationality. The decision to go out and vote, for a start, is in itself an irrational decision. Political scientists refer to it as the “voting paradox”. Voting involves considerable effort, which needs to be offset by a considerable benefit if the decision is to be rational. But each of us separately has virtually zero influence on the election outcome. Through the entire history of democracy there has been no national election anywhere in the world that was determined by a single vote.

Why do we vote nonetheless? The reason is that voting is an emotional and, to some extent, recreational activity. If voting was about influencing the election’s outcome, you would have agreed with your next-door neighbour, who supports the rival party, that you both stay at home. But no. You want to be there to cast your vote, because voting is more about expression than about consequences.

Phone numbers have hyphens to make them more memorable / readable.

***-****-**** is better than ***********.

Paragraphs have indentations.

I often put spaces between sentences.

Shouldn't matter if the information is all at once or broken up into smaller, more digestible pieces (though the latter is slightly preferable).

Maybe so, but  neither is your carping connie echo chamber. 

Besides as an educator, it's second nature to fight ignorance.

Korea is a lot less racist than it was 10 or 15 years ago.  That said, if you are a slobbish looking English teacher, long beard, lots of tattoos, piercings, man bun, etc, the locals will look more warily at you than if you are clean cut.  Some foreign migrant workers do still face some stigma though nothing compared to also 10 or 15 years ago.  (But even with the above mentioned looks, if you are really kick ass at your job and have an agreeable personality and the kids like you a lot, then even then locals will overcome it eventually, I guess.)

Poor baby, she has such thin skin,and can't handle the truth.

What a slime ball.

What a (stable) genius!

a religious zealot who'll say it's God's punishment for abortions and gays

You mean trump's mini me?

I guess that makes sense considering the intelligence of most far right reactionaries.

Another Republican cover-up; it's almost as if it's part of the party's DNA.

So big they spell it biggot.

Is that you, Capt. Obvious?

As usual, you;'e got it backasswards

And I fart in yours.

misogynistic racist gasbag

Trump voters ARE, by and large, racists.

LOL. Peace deal--that is truly hilarious.

Yea, let us know mike pompous.

trump's amerika.

OK boomer.

Repugs

Bonzo bonespurs

So constructive. They should put you to work on that wall!

But seriously, "Bonzo bonespurs"? Are you saying that Trump is the Bonzo of Presidents? The greatest of all time?

Per wiki:
In 2016, Rolling Stone ranked [John 'Bonzo' Bonham] first in its list of the "100 Greatest Drummers of All Time"
