Recent Observations

The quality of discourse lately on the Internet has been something like this.

Person 1: Anyone who disagrees with me about my cause du jour is Hitler.

Person 2: You suck!

At first I was going to strongly disagree with you and tell you that you suck but you know I love you and I can't lie. However I have been having this great exchange on my blog that could have easily turned into a bunch of name calling but has been handled rather surprisingly with respect.

It's always been thus. No one is in danger of getting popped in the snoot for being an asshole on the internet, so it's easier to actually BE an asshole.
