I seem to have pissed someone off this morning.
Near as I can figure it out, he got upset over an attempted joke of mine. In one of my posts, I wrote, “After all, I am a proud intellectual who tackles information in order to get laid, rather than a confused scientist who tackles information in order to discover truths.”
From what I gather he thinks of himself as an intellectual, and — instead of dismissing that sentence as an attempt at humor — he took it that I was seriously bent on insulting upstanding intellectuals like himself.
So, he then went on a rampage in which he not only attempted to insult and abuse me, but also — for some mysterious reason — attempted to insult someone else — someone who is a regular commentator on this blog, and who had nothing to do with what was bugging him.
At that point, I felt it necessary to both delete his verbally abusive comments and ban him.
A half hour later, someone else — someone entirely different (I checked!) — came online to attempt to abuse one of the newest commentators on this blog.
Naturally, I’ve dealt with him too. But what’s going on here? Are some people now expecting me to provide them with a platform for abusing others?
Jeebers! What a morning!
