Now I'm being flamed on MetaTalk, an offshoot of MetaFilter:
I wouldn't place too much importance on what a site like "A Small Victory" has to say about the level of debate on Metafilter. Come on! Look the bile, hatred, bigotry and self-righteousness the author and respondents generate.
I think I'll use that as my new tagline. Bile! Hatred! Bigotry! Except that I don't recall ever being a bigot, but that does not matter in the land of flaming your enemies.
Note to MetaFilter people: I am not a right-winger, especially not a rabid one. I am more of a centrist, with some right handed leanings. Just because I wrote in one post about my need to hang on to the anger of 9/11 does not mean I am an all out Bush cheerleader, school-prayer loving, white supremacist who frequents dirty water trenches like Free Republic. Of course, most of you have just read that one angry post so what would you know?
Anyhow, in two and half years of blogging, I've been flamed and broiled and skewered and roasted a number of times. This won't be the last, even though it is probably the first group-flame I've received and it most likely will remain the nastiest, for reasons I'll keep to myself.
Anyhow, get over yourselves, guys. Most of the descriptions you set up on right-wingers go for left-wingers as well. Self-parody indeed.
