Scalzi has made some excellent points about this blog about A Call for Manners in the World of Nasty Blogs. I agree with all of John Scalzi's points infact, but I do have concerns about how nasty humans can be. It seems to only get worse with the level of anonymity that the web provides. What in a person to person level interaction where one individual is irritated or dislikes the other person, on the net it becomes full out hatred with scathing things said.
I personally feel that treat others how you want to be treated. And it is my blog, I can remove comments, but since you are all my friends and family, that is highly unlikely.
