This post is not meant to solicit responses from our colleagues--but more to describe what Charlie (may peace be upon him) and I have been through at Jay Rosen's site--fascinating--you know, I have never seen Charlie po'ed -- but damn, I am glad I am not his dog (sorry Charlie)--I went through the same sort of crap--and it is interesting: apparently some of their posters looked at our website site ID, Yargb, and figured it was a coordinated attack. Whatever.
I had the not particularly demanding (intellectually speaking) task of matching wits with one Steve Lovelady--whose resume far outstated his intellectual grasp of reality--
I made enough of a pain in the ass of myself, to get both Steve and me booted off Jay's site--not a problem, I claimed alcohol addiction, and general malaise.
Sports Fans: it is most interesting to me, that many of the poster's on this site somehow assumed that we were mounting a coordinating attack on their thesis--it really has come to the issue that political sites on one wing see other sites as on the other wing
At any rate, I am happy to report, that I got both me and the execrable Steve Lovelady purged from Jay's site--hey, its the LEAST I could have done--and then the dumb son of a b**ch called me "son"--Do any of you have any idea how much that burns me?
just saying--scum bag, opinionated b*tholes etc--I can live with that--but not SON
