Ok so I just read like one of the most annoying blog posts I've ever read. It definitely belongs up there in the top 5. Seriously, I was pretty pissed off...I couldn't even finish reading it till the end because I didn't want it to completely ruin my good mood.
If this had been around the time when I first joined the blogosphere, I would have replied with so much passion and fury and maybe a couple "who the hell do you think you are?" I would have brewed a cup of coffee in preparation for writing the perfect counter viewpoint while thoroughly illustrating the author's absurdity at the same time. In fact, I can often times tell if someone is new on the blog scene by the nature of their comments on posts.
Nowadays though it doesn't matter. I can just say "ok that was annoying" and move on. The exception would be when it's written by a really popular blogger with a widely read blog because in that case I don't feel like I'm wasting my time on ONE blogger's post but rather I'm reaching out to a large audience to lobby my argument. Other than though, I don't know this person, nor does the person know me. It's written by a virtual person that's part of a virtual world that might as well not even exist. So why react?
