I'm Surrounded by Adults?

Despite the fact that I've been unreasonably busy this week, I have found some time to read my favorite blogs still (sorry to those who check in here expecting new material).

I worked late last night, and so while waiting for an experiment to proceed, I was able to find time to read. Apparently I left Michelle Malkin's site up on the (public) lab computer. This morning when I came in, I was still logged in and her site was up on the computer, except in the address bar at the top someone had typed "b**ch". I probably don't need to fill in the blanks for you.

Yeah, really mature guys. I know Michelle can be a bit grating to, well, anyone who disagrees with her, but how old are you? Even twelve year olds stopped thinking that was clever. Seriously . . .

Hey...if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck...

Certainly one is entitled to his/her opinion and though not the most constructive way to voice it, the point was still made.

Would you be as upset if it was a positive comment that had been left?

Have you ever heard that saying, "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all?"

Or are maturity, civility, and courtesy optional when it comes to political matters?

"There are times when something is so silly, so utterly stupid that mockery and ridicule become ineffectual. Sometimes the something is so ridiculous that it mocks itself. Such is the nature of the Daily Northwestern at this point."

Those weren't very nice statements either. Yes, those were opinions of yours. But for those you are criticizing, they aren't very nice to hear. Perhaps you should start following your own advice.

You do make a good point. I'll admit to being a bit harsh in that post (though I still think the Daily's editorials are without merit).

But I maintain that there's a significant difference between my post and that anonymous person calling Michelle Malkin a derogatory name.
