Bummer

First, I really appreciate and like what TAFKASKB* is doing. But Knoxviews already has a troll infestation. If you do not toe the line, we will annoy you with nonsense, non-sequitur and ad hominem to get you to go away (Not the host, the commenters).

Unfortunate. More unfortunate is that I felt the need to address them, a mistake I don’t mean to duplicate. Some folks over there (like Rikki) are serious about engaging the issues but a few bad apples and all that.

And that doesn’t mean I’ll quit reading or crossposting there because I think it’s an awesome concept for a blog. Just that I’ll stop feeding the trolls. Seriously, there’s a time and place for incivility, when it’s reasoned and shows some thought. I don’t think the various posts I’ve seen there by me and other right leaning folks warrant such annoyance.

Update: TAFKASKB responds. Thanks! And the word infestation was a bit much. For that, I apologize.

    It’s intolerant to be intolerant of intolerance! 😉 I was bothered by some of the early trolling but I chalked it up to “Let’s see what we can get away with!” Blogs tend to be echo-chambers. Bubba is on to something with KnoxViews. I can’t wait to see how it shakes out.

    Give me a break, Uncle. It’s well established that I have nothing to offer but insults.
