Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Actually, free radicals need not be positive, or even charged at all. Atomic oxygen and atomic hydrogen are both potent free radicals - which is why you don't generally find atomic O and H. Rather, you'll find O_2 and H_2.

And free radicals aren't uniformly Bad Guys In Pointy Hats either, but I think that I'll refrain from drawing parallels between politics and the rather arbitrary naming conventions of the natural sciences...
