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.
I still don’t see your problem, but it is YOUR problem not mine. Obviously you run the board and we will all do it your way. You’ve given your opinion on the author, story and AC. I hardly think I’m trying to keep anyone from giving their opinion.
I thought AC was a news source. It doesn’t look like a blog to me. But then these old eyes aren’t what they used to be.
So, do whatever it is you want to do..lol. Life is precious and time is short. If you feel better, then that’s what counts. That the article was trying to bring light to the hungry certainly is NOT more important than the points you are trying to make.
