Very helpful article. So, there's nothing wrong with getting peed off; it's how you deal with your anger that matters. I am not surprised that canalizing your angry energy towards something positive and constructive is healthful, or at least less harmful than "blowing up." I have found that, when something pees me off, when I find even a small thing to do that is constructive - such as sign, or start, a petition - that helps disperse my angry energy.

It's a form of energy. If it's not released in some way, it circulates. What then?
