No really, THAT was utterly shameful writing.

Lousy Canuck has another post with extreme histrionics. It's so weird because I really liked the beginning. He was describing his awkward upbringing, and I found myself totally relating. Obviously he went down a different path and chose the comic books and video games route. As for me, the Army pretty much saved my life. But I had to stop reading midway through and react.I stopped at this bit.Lousy Canuck wrote:I saw Justin Griffith step up to tell everyone that the members of Team … [Read more...]

But in the process of having this argument, I made some mistakes and he exploited the situation, so I ended up … [Read more...]

Shockingly, I received an email from one of my fellow bloggers that was coercive in nature and included violent threats.Greg Laden went way too far tha … [Read more...]
