Let me make a suggestion to all the angry, warring, partisan bloggers, those who have received writs and those who have issued them:
Take a week away from the computer. Do it for Lent or for Purim, or just for your own sake. Do it for your mental and spiritual health. See how very small the so-called "blogosphere" is, and how its fights are not worth your time and money.
It's easy to get caught up in the Internet. Lord knows, even media owners and senior execs have been caught in the Net, making irrational decisions based on their own Internet use, not on reality.
Anyone noticing that the pool of "important" bloggers hasn't become any bigger in the past five years or so? Or that Kate MacMillan, the most-read blogger in Canada, still has her day job? Or that the commenters on most blog sites tend to be the same group of about 30 people, going on and on, day after day? Or that none of the politicians who took up blogging in a big way are important players in Canadian politics?
So step back. Give your heads a shake. In 50 years, we'll all be dead. Is all the ugliness on the Internet worth the time and effort?
