What is it? 4am? About that.
It’s been a full, full day – – and I am sitting here at 4am trying to decide between sleep, or a cup of coffee. The activities of this day would probably take up all of the harddrive space I have available on the server that I’m on.
Let’s just leave it at this – –
The posting of private information about a person, without their consent, is just not a nice or a good thing to do. Especially when that private information is not readily accessible anywhere on the net. It’s one thing if you’ve obtained it from a WHOIS database from a registrar – – that is public info. It’s one thing if the person had posted it on his/her website for the world to see.
But, if you are privvy to a person’s private information, because of a former friendship or association with the person, and choose to post it on the net as some sort of retaliation for a disagreement that you shared with the person in a blog thread, for crying out loud – – well, it’s just wrong.
No matter how much you may despise that person. It’s still wrong.
No matter how much that person has been goading you in debate and discussion. It’s still wrong.
That would be like me getting into a heated argument with my mother – – then going to the net and saying “Here everyone – – here is her name, address and phone number, have at it! That’ll teach her to ever disagree with one of my blog posts ever again! Ha! I showed her!”
It takes a whole lot of diverse people to make this world as interesting as it is. Don’t take to a blog and expect that every single person who comes upon it is going to agree with every brilliant word you spew forth. It ain’t gonna happen. Learn to brush it off. Learn to let it go. Either embrace the other for their differences – – or walk away from it and don’t bother yourself with it anymore.

Is it so hard to just take a deep breath and just walk away from the blog?
