LOL..you must have had a bad weekend. I’m not here to critique anyone’s writing. I just happened to like to read AC, or is it AC/Yahoo now? Anyway, I saw that Dateline last night..don’t know if it was a rerun or not.

As for your complete disregard and unhappiness of this article, why did you even get it on it when you could see perfectly well that it was an Associated Content article?

I’ve read better and I’ve read worse. So what’s your point? Maybe you should list the material that I am allowed to post here, is that what Freepers has come to? I don’t think so.

You’ve been here from virtually the beginning. I started lurking in 1999 and joined shortly thereafter.

You recall when FR was a place to post an article, then to discuss. We only truncated articles when FR got sued, and to avoid a hassle we truncate articles selectively.

My point is that FReepers should see themselves as part of a community, not a dropping-off point for blog teasers. I can’t make you see it that way, but I can certainly state my opinion. And out of fairness, I did read the story and I did comment (it was in fact an incoherent stream of consciousness blog). Her heart may be in the right place, but bad blogging is still bad blogging. Again, just IMO and when you post opinions to FR, you get opinions in return.
