I guess maybe I'm too new to this blogging thing, or maybe I'm just naive about people...
Even though I had heard about bloggers sniping at each other, and at least one instance of a reader not realizing that Frank was joking, it never occurred to me that bloggers and their "fans" could be so petty and malicious as this.
Ever since I read it, and the associated links, I have been extremely disturbed by the whole thing. I don't have a side here. I am not a regular reader of either of these ladies' sites. And one of them, although I don't know which, has some serious "issues".
So, just in case I happen to have a seriously deranged "fan", let me clarify:
My "battle" with Kin is intended to be playfully amusing.
The Axis of Naughty is a joke.
Frank's war on the Instapundit is a joke.
Any and all exhortations to "take sides" in the Blog War, declarations for one side or the other, appeals for peace...these are all ways to amuse ourselves during Official Bloggers' Navel Gazing Month....
Okay? We all clear on that?
We now take you back to your regularly scheduled blogging....
