Response to Tuesday Afternoon (Reply #22)

29. She was? That wasn't what I saw. What I saw was someone incapable of getting along

with even her erstwhile "allies".

Someone smart, but deeply toxic.

I had some exchanges with her that were pleasant or humorous, but she managed to alienate pretty much everyone she came into contact with, in one way or another.

We can go 'round and 'round with speculations about how people really feel, but the truth of the matter is, it's the words we actually write and post on the internet which are the true record of our character.

I think there are a lot of people who have said, in assorted places, some vile, nasty shit online. If one looks at the sum total of all the words they've put out there- they should ask themselves; is this something I can be proud of? Honestly?

Or not?

I'm not expressly proud of every single dumb joke I've ever made, for instance, but not once have I ever expressed hate for individuals, or groups of people. Not once have I advocated or even entertained the notion of violence. Not once have I done anything remotely like that. My greatest offense has been disagreeing with people who apparently brook no disagreement.

I think in the case of this blogger, and some others in question, the answer is obvious.
