the unspeakable curse of Nice Blogging
Paul Short is right. The blogosphere is a mess. It's so lame, I'm ashamed to be a part of it.
Bloggers are dropping like flies, abandoning their blogs as "failures"...and I don't condemn them, nor do I call them sissies, but come on. What in tarnation is going on around here? Everywhere I turn I see wimpy, light-in-the-loafers bloggers talking about cordial conversations, polite speech, gentle persuasion.
Nice Blogging is a curse, a blotch, a disgrace. If you're a Nice Blogger, I pity you, I really do. If you want to be kissy face with every rotten jerk on the planet, that's your problem. It's not Real Blogging to pamper the weak-ass chumps who whine about "A List Hegemony", "hopeless blog activity", and "negative comments".
You actually think corporate executives speak "professionally", "politely", "maturely" as they drink their Blue Moons with orange twist and plot their next scam on consumers? You really believe you have to have a supportive, soft, simpering environment in your blog? Sucka foo!
Blogs started by people with nothing to say, no talent, poor writing skills, defective logic, crybaby narcissism, or general malaise? They will not last. They deserve the obscurity they create by their lack of guts and zeal.
Once you start down the slippery slope of Nice Blogging, never using anger as a tool, as mentioned profoundly in the BlogHer 2005 "Flame, Blame, Shame" podcast, you end up with nothing but sewage, debris, wimped-out boredom.
No, not everybody has to be hostile or aggressive all the time. But damn, if you're an Approval Addict, you are a complete loser idiot to start a blog. Your little innocent stupid dreamworld will crash and burn super fast, with that ridiculous attitude.
If you pamper the whimpering underachiever crybabies, you'll fall in line with China style censorship and all the rest of the Neo-fascist garbage out there.
