I should have been reading Tony

Holy big bad shit. I should have been reading Tony. I knew it was a mistake to get involved in this meta blog bullcrap, because you know, people can say they know who's an asshole and who's happy and nice in blogland, and people can blog all day and put up nice pix that show they are so white and harmless and freckled and breadbaseket-americana, and then they:

rape
torture
kill
decapitate
rape again
cut up
and plan to eat
ten-year-old little girls

even if they only get to the torture, kill, decapitate, rape(2), and cut-up parts. it can happen. you might like them, who knows, they may have you on their blogroll, and they might dig what you write a lot, they might come around your place and comment, and even quote your posts on their blogs, and all the while you don't know that they have a dead freckle-faced kid in the cooler whom they have finished murdering but haven't eaten yet, and ...

when they confess, you find out that this pretty average blog guy who looks weird in retrospect but described himself as "single, bored, and lonely, but other than that, pretty happy," seemed like any joeblowblogger at the time, this guy who has swapped blog spit with you, is the killer, and you see a trail to other blogs where he wrote some way fucked up stuff, and did you know? no--that's not the part he showed you, hell you even threw him a link once.

And you feel like you are going to puke and you feel like the world has opened up and showed you the belly of the devil on Good Friday.

Just ask tony pierce how that feels.

Tony points to a roundup of news stories here.

jesus.

My brother put up a toilet for you to puke in here. But me, i've a different reaction. i fully expected this element to show up on-line. My reaction is more like this ... "We're finding that people are surprisingly trustworthy and good. Ther's some bad guys out there but not a lot of them. And that's working really well."

Actually, Seth, you have no context here, so, how fitting, you have NO idea of what I'm expressing. The element didn't "show up" online. The element has been online. THAT's my point. As a human being and a mother and a long-time blogger, that matters to me.

Who has said more about him, me or you?

Hmmm.

Well i think it is a healthy reaction to puke when you encounter evil. But then what? ... err, you redirect, you reconnect with the other side ... if you stay there puking and squirming and fighting you just contribute to the pain. No, i didnt say anything about him, nor did i puke ... i just noted his existence ... collected it as it were ... and moved on. Craig's comment that i quoted is a simple hint of that other side. Gahndi said it differently ... (sorry loose paraphrase from memory) ... good always wins out against evil because evil destroys itself. But if i am out of context here, just delete me and move on. PS, my server is down ... probably due to hackers from the dark side of the net ... yes we are swimming in this stuff ... time to get some antibodies.
