Blogging Insanity

Another blogger and I exchanged some emails which, with their kind permission and names redacted, are posted here.

If you look at my modest blog you will see that I have commented once or twice at Theo Spark's house, a few times on others from the Pajamas stable, less often than I used to from LGF, and most often at Wretchard the Cat's The Belmont Club Unfortunately just last night PJM's Wordpress engine suddenly declared harmless little old me to be spam, so I am blocked until Fernandez sorts it out.

Regarding the blog wars around LGF I am as unhappy as anyone. Some things can not be fixed, change happens. The principle that we should be careful not to be exploited by extremists or anti-semites masquerading as conservatives or libertarians is one that I could agree with. There is some merit in viewing the Intelligent Design movement as a less slick bunch of charlatans aping the methods of the Global Warming scam artists or even as a wedge that can be exploited for stealth Islamization.

Granting those principles I do not feel comfortable with what has happened there. It is not my blog but I would not have focused on those issues and the personalities in the same way. It remains the best crafted user interface that I have seen.

See you soon,


PS: With your permission I will redact our names and post this thread on my blog. YYYYY

I just discovered her blog. I remember when she used to comment at LGF. Are you still commenting there? I stopped going a few weeks ago. Looking for a new go to blog. I visit JammieWearingFool and Killian Bundy's blogs.
Take care. Will be in NYC in June, hope to see you again then.
