comment boxing





Comment
Boxing


...is
when
you
use
a
blog's
comment
box
to box,
to strike,
to slap around,
to punch and pound
another blogger.

A mild form of inflammatory rhetoric attack.


Here's an example of what comment boxing looks like in a blog's comment thread.

A moderately aggressive form of blogbering, blog clobbering via comment posting.


We want everyone to have a blog, not so we can hear from them, but so they can hear from us.


Keep it real.

I prefer that such comments be by Anonymous.

He never sues anybody.

Helloooo Steven,
SO what of VTG rules of blogging??

Keeping fresh updated posts??
Several of your blogs have fallen behind. Could it be you are not following your own standards??
You the Grating and all powerful Vaspers??
Say its not so!!!!

It's true, I'm in the process of retiring, deleting, and otherwise damaging and erasing some blogs.

It's hard to tell what might happen.

The Moms Against Vaspers the Grate site is hovering in the basement, while Stinky Ugly Toys is rumbling around in the closet behind me.

The new blogs will pretend to try to be more interesting.
