The sincerest form of something...

So a guy in America has formed a blog called Capitalism Great; Tree There to be Cut Down as a Natural Resource. Dean Swift sees three types of post on his new blog:

* direct replies to CBTP with quotes and what not
* dissenting views to those presented on CBTP
* atirical original posts (but not mean spiritied) written in the same style as CBTP
He's currently challenging people to reply to my position on the student who gave birth and abandoned the baby (don't worry I'm going to post a far more radical post on the subject - it'd be better if you waited and replied to that).

I'm kind of astonished that anyone thinks a radical, with very little power, on the other side of the world is the most important use of their time. There are days when I'm not even that interested in what I have to say. But I'm glad it's serving some sort of purpose.

I'd like to invite all the annoying men who want to talk trash about rape survivors, or women in general, or act surprised that there's anyone to the left of the labour/democrat party, or tell me how to post, or who get grumpy when I delete their posts, to go over there and reply to me in a way that won't bother me. I'm sure Dean would love to hear from you.

  1. Whoever said responding to you was an "important" use of anyone's time? It's just laughs, that's all. You have high entertainment value.

  2. I'd take it as a tribute. And, besides, the guy's not as bad as Trevor Loudon. First he banned me from his blog, saying that I talked a load of rubbish, then he did a cut and paste job on one of my posts on East Timor! You can't come over, but I'll come to your place and borrow what I like...

  3. No-one is as bad as Trevor Loudon Maps.

    I don't know whether to be pleased or depressed that my ideas are that threatening

  5. Wow. I guess it's rather, um... touching, maybe? that someone would start a whole blog about your blog. Some people sure must have a lot of time on their hands.

  6. Dean and Maia you both must have way too much time on your hands. I am amazed at the amount of time bloggers spend writing and posting on a frigin daily basis. Do you have lives? Maybe disagreeing with me is something you will both have in common!

  7. Dean I've asked you before not to post on my blog.

    I actually have better things to do with my time than argue with you. Go argue with me in your own space where it won't bother me.

  8. I have to admit that watching the little spat between two idealogues that differ from my own perspective always makes for great piece of humour.

    Both of you keep it up please!

  9. Of course it is also amusing seeing a blogger saying "please don't comment here" - in contrast to most pleading blogs on the web of "please SOMEBODY comment here" ;-)

  10. Took a quick look. Just another halfwit freeper (Michelle Malkin, for fucksake). I wouldn't bother replying, really.
