    But that comment was eaten by my phone.
    ----

    Maybe your phone could eat your phone, as this seems to be "gang up on CHC day." I don't blame that on Steve Jobs, I blame it on the nature of the blog, and b.com, with its uneven moderation.

    Did it feel good to you to tell her that "people disagree with [CHC] a lot ..." ? I guess it does amongst the Schmoopy Barstool Mafia.

    I blame it on the people that are too gutless to use their real name when attacking someone

    It must be. Because "DryHumor" has no sense of humor.

    LL has had times of complete snark, times of complete domination by the so-called cool kids, times of hug fests and times of flat out bullying. It will continue to make the rounds of human behavior as long as it lasts. People come and go, and sometimes (yes only sometimes) it is brilliant.

    I read though these 31 pages to see where the discussion would go. I hope that next week some lurkers chime in to comment on the commentors. 

    Peace out folks.

    Re: Some Thoughts on The Blog

    I hate to see anyone getting ganged up on, and I also hate to see the blog get "blogged down" with petty differences.  I think most of the people here bring something of value to the table, and that comes in many different forms.  

    Sometimes the snarky comments force you to look at a problem in a new light.  

    Sometimes personal experience brings some nuance.  Sometimes it just serves to make today's letter about the commenter.  Again.  

    Sometimes the in-jokes are funny.  Sometimes they are exclusionary.  

    Sometimes a comment is condescending.  Other times it's just true.  Sometimes a comment is perceived negatively because it's meant that way.  Other times it's all the perception of the reader.  Flip a coin.  

    I don't always have time to read every comment, so I frequently don't find out what happened on the blog till later.  Usually if I see a comment that crosses the line into a personal attack or an -ism, I will hit the report button, but that's pretty rare.  And if I do see something, by the time I catch up to real time, it's been resolved, and my comment won't serve any real purpose.  And now that I've been posting an hour into the past, maybe I can do some real good.  LOL  

    People are going to continue to be whom they are, I try not to take any of it too personally.
