I just have to share! by now you know that Katie let me know how hilarious dooce is. She has the balls (pardon the french) to just tell it like it is with some things. Her latest blog entry Exclamation Point, long overdue edition, talks about something that bugs me about people that comment on some blogs. Either the "commenters" are totally rude when they disagree with something (have some tact people!), or they are totally ignorant and don't own it. I read through some of the comments on some blogs and wonder if people actually read the posts. That is just a pet peeve of mine.....if you don't get what the author is trying to say then a) Don't comment , b) Own it! Comment on what you don't get, then the author has a chance to reply with an explanation OR c) read through the post a few times until you DO get it. (Although...sometimes it is the funniest thing in the world to read some of those comments and just laugh at all the "crazies" in this world!) Closed minded, ignorant people bug me! Disclaimer: This post was written under the influence of alcohol! (drinking alone sucks!)

I tried to comment on that post by Dooce, but it wouldn't let me (kept saying the verification I typed was wrong...anyway...) But I am constantly amazed at the stupidity of people. I know I shouldn't be, but I am. I mean, how hard is it to just NOT read the blog. But to turn around and tell people how horrible you think they are is just absurd. Like you said, they need to own it and say, "I disagree and here's why" but they take it to extremes. I'm glad Dooce has the balls to stand up to them!

On a side note, you know I'll always drink with you. Just give me a call.

Ok so I'm sure that some of the readers were not just one time readers. I bet some of them would come back and read it again just to see what she was writting about now. Which all in all is pretty crappy if they are going to rag on her and be dumb.
