vitriol & tantamount

Quotations:

--Where's the fraternity gone?
I'm a bit disappointed about the vitriole in this thread.
If us Newbies have no where else to go, no one else to ask, what can we do?
As is often quoted, " be kind to people who are on the way up, as they will be passing you when you are on the way down"
Or in other words: (kamahl:) " why are people so unkind?
Or to put it another way: (anon) "shit happens to everyone"
Whatever.

-- So many times I warned Uber about this issue and they always told me they are doing stuff about it. They knew this was an issue and did nothing. That is tantamount to murder/manslaughter.

Definitions:

vitriol:
very cruel and bitter comments and criticism.

tantamount:
having the same bad effect as sth else.​
