The Golden Rule of Blogging . . .

You're going to piss somebody off sometime so don't worry about it. Different strokes rile different folks. Some people get pissed if you hit them with a track back from a post that they don't feel fits to theirs. Some get angry if you link in their comments. Others only want text mail or mail formatted this way or that way. Others are going to get irate over the content of your posts, comments, whatever.

So what? Don't get worried if somebody gets pissed at you. It's not the end of the world and it's not the end of your blog. As long as you're writing and visiting/commenting/tracking honestly the vast majority of people out there are perfectly happy with you.

Guess I'm one of the lucky ones. I have a whole army of people who hate my blog, yet find me so dang lovable that can't *stay* mad at me.

A person should be able to say anything they want in a free society with the understanding that somebody won't like it. Allowing for such dislike is a bilateral thing; it only works when all participants practice it. I think that's the difference between "spirited debate" and "assault and battery".
