I debated whether I should actually go ahead and snark this comment
here, but I figured it was better than actually replying to it (again). So:
1. Apparently, if somebody is "upset" by something that somebody they don't know writes on an electronic bulletin board, that's the other person's problem for posting something that's SO MEAN AND NASTY and not their own problem for not being able to deal with conflict maturely.
2. Disagreeing with somebody on an electronic bulletin board is equivalent to "terrorism". Okay, then, I'll be sure to forward your comment to the Department of Homeland Security.
3. Electronic communication is both so
important that it's reasonable for people to feel "upset" and "terrorized" by things like people explaining that a certain word isn't used at Wellesley, and so
unimportant that anyone who bothers to use it must surely have better things they could be doing. (Unless, of course, they're using it to tell somebody else that they have better things they could be doing.)
4. Someone with an LJ that's almost solely about fashion, TV shows, and expensive things they want certainly ought to be lecturing others on how they should be using their time.
