One thing about a weblog instead of social media like FaceBook is that it’s not a forum, it’s just out there, take it or leave it and mostly it’s left. Cynicisms, personal religious aberrations, social oddities and political eccentricities can be said without encountering anonymous snark. A blog post is a wave in the ether. During the 2008 political campaign lots of extremist fringe material was passed around by email and my email address was on some lists. It'll start up again soon. Comments back and forth were always certitudinous, and often ugly, hateful, bizarre lunatic element, threatening, unnerving, alarming, even frightening. My response was back away, learn a lesson about exposing self to anonymous strangers.
People who respond anonymously are like a driver well-mannered among friends and neighbors who behind the wheel honks insanely and finger salutes anyone who annoys. On line road-rage: e-rage. He who knows not and knows not he knows not, he is a fool: shun him.
On my blog, my post is my person who doesn’t need to agree with anybody on anything and usually doesn’t.
For the underdog
Pax. Or pox.
