  •  well, i just got slapped (2+ / 0-)

    down on the innertubes because i pointed out that an email circulated by a friend was anti-government propaganda.

    this friend regularly sends stuff which she doesn't understand and i finally just pointed it out for what it was in a please sort of way and her daughter replied that i shouldn't email her again.

    i guess i might have been in a pissy mood, but all i did was ask not to circulate this propaganda.

    for that i got slapped down.

    this person doesn't know me at all and was reacting to the fact that i replied to all because i wanted people to realize that the info was incorrect which i did in the fewest possible words.

    such are the innertubes.  my first comment here, or one of the first on the first day was met with something like:

    "your skin is so thin i can see your bones"

    i learned quickly that the innertubes were no place for the faint of heart.

    not that i sanction it.

    it does piss me off that people here are really more interested in arguing and stopping meaningful discussion than in making anything better.

    i don't think anyone gets convinced of anything here.  the information stream is very good as many thousands of eyes scan for what is going on.  this is what i value it for, not the idea that debate here leads to changing minds.

    people are far too ideological to be convinced by comments in a blog.

    just the way i see things working around here.

    slinkerwink is a target because she critiques the big guy so here taste in furniture apparently is a target too.

    wanting the best for your baby is not something that should ever be targeted.  especially, anonymously.
