Ummmmm, I never complained. But thanks for the link!

I know, but many of the complaints were lodged within your comments. Note I didn't include you among the whiny.

Too true! Too true! I just provided the sandbox for all the children to poop in.

I just stayed out of the comments over there. I don't think I take any of this seriously enough to bother arguing.

wow, who knew those people were that $#%&! bitchy? What a turn off - screw their websites. waaaaaaahhhhhhhhh!

I still think he is gorgeous. I do I tell you.

c'mon, don't play like andy put out some insightful criticism of personal blogging. what he did was take some egregious potshots using very loaded language, ala "neurotic, self-obsessed people to cram their heads even farther up their own asses."

that's not criticism its name calling, and it was also a good opportunity for him to take another shot in yours and his ongoing blogfight with duane.

of course, people who put themseleves out there should be able to take it. you get called names all the time and roll right along. i would never suggest that you or andy shouldn't post whatever you want or in andy's case whatever the editors of cl will let him get away with.

my personal opinion, it would have been a much better piece and stayed true to it;s intent if andy had left that out of there.

whatever, it's his platform and yours to do with whatever you all deem fit, but please don't play like he was offering insightful critique of the media.

as for your other comments, i don't give a shit whether my personal blog gets any accolades at all. it exists primarly because i like to experiment with the medium and also to keep far-flung friends and family in the loop on what i am doing.

and the two blogs among andy;s five that i read are great, as i mentioned in my metroblogging post.

A stuck pig squeals, James.

Oink?

Wait, no.

Squeal?

james

well, paddy. i'm just offering my OPINION and that seems to be the most sacrosanct thing around here.

btw - i have no axe to grind in this fight, other than i just think that what andy wrote should be called what it is and not be papered over as some form on 'intelligent criticism.'

i'm a fan of all these guys generally. don't believe me, check out this link:

James, thank you for weighing in.

I called the blogosphere dim, with some bright lights.

Clearly that irritates some people. Nevertheless, none of the people expressing irritation at me (and CL) for saying it have actually asserted that it's untrue.

Read Amber's comments on GriftDrift. She agrees that most blogs are crap. Her objection is that I put the words in print.

I asked her to elaborate a bit on her blog and responded that her problem with my story is that I expressed a negative opinion.

Without a trace of irony, someone actually said that they had a negative opinion of me for having a negative opinion.

What a bunch of candy ass little mommas boys you sissy pants really are! You should hear what the ladies at the club call me when I miss an easy volley in doubles tournament play. Would make your candy-ass lips curl back double over your shrunk-up little weenies! And I know those ladies were all raised right. You sissy blog boys... well, let's just say the jury's out on that bunch.

Can't hang around here long though. Off to the courts for me. No lazy-ass MySpacey-y list-makers trying to pass themselves off as real journalists allowed over there. We'd kick your butts six ways to Sunday, or 'til cocktails or served. Whichever comes first.

Once again, Andy, you are not hearing me. Sorry.

This squabble has made my week. +4.5 troll points for Andy. (2 pts. base, x1.5 for print-online crossover, x1.5 for inline.)
