Am I the only one who finds ThinkDink
and the positive blogging crusade in general somewhat crass? If people do have something to say, they should just say it. The mistake of course is assuming that the blogging community actually exists as a community in any external, practical sense, when in truth it really is just a bunch of personal websites, reflecting personalities
. These people, generally highly intelligent, eloquent, vibrant people, shouldn't need to be goaded into following some Blogger Ethical Code. Their own moral
code should be enough to tell them when something is shameful. But reading so many vapidly humble, apologetic posts by bloggers with electronically downcast eyes, I
was the one who felt ashamed.
