Friendslist for the WIN

March 19th, 2009 (11:09 am)

I want to say, for the record, before the Defensive White People Brigade try to use the number of responses to my last post as ammunition, I love my friends list.

Most of the folks on it disagreed with my last post, or at least felt really ambivalent about it. And they did it respectfully, kindly, and thoughtfully. Even people who wandered over from other LJs did.

Lousy excuse for an "orc horde" y'all are.

I plan to make a post talking about the list and my response to it plus my venturing over to yours. I have invited some folks to join. I have to tell you that yet again you and in this case one of your flisters gave me something to thing about. You always give me new reasons to admire and respect you.

Life's a piece o'---when you look at it

Too tame for ya, huh?

HA!

Believe it or not, I hate online ugliness.

But it wasn't tame; folks spoke up clearly and unflinchingly, and some said things that I didn't much like to hear. They just weren't assholes, is all.

I tried to google up a picture of an orc horde and only got WoW hentai/porn.

Which distracted me so I forgot about posting a picture of an orc horde.

*scratches head* I think I'm supposed to be a member of that DWPB you mentioned, but... I dunno. I've mostly been staying out of the RaceFail09 because I get the feeling that anything I have to bring to the conversation will not be new and will sort of automatically miss the point. ;) But even as a DWP, I wouldn't call the number of comments you got 'ammunition'. I like that people are talking and that a good number are keeping their heads.

I've learned a bit about the people I read on LJ from the whole thing though, and that's cool. There're a bunch of truly deeply interesting minds out there. Can't get enough of that, really.

Hmmm. Is that name-calling? Should I ban you?

Perhaps instead I will change my post to say: "I love my friends list except for Barth Anderson."

Really, I just wanted to be in the orc horde. Couldn't you let me be in the half-orc horde??

I followed the discussion with great interest! And found it very thought-provoking.
