I have to really disagree here. Sure, Matt's post was not devoid of cliches, insults or attitude, but it actually seems less guilty of all that then your response is.
And his underlying point seems pretty valid. The Carroll-bashing phenomenon seems to me to be better classified as an example of the right-wing attack mode, than of any general tendency of the blogosphere. Blogworld is incredibly diverse, showing examples of the full range of human expression - i.e. some disgusting, some brilliant, a lot mediocre etc.
It is simply not the appropriate category for the Carroll-bashing phenomenon.
Rightwing attack mode however, does follow a pattern, and the Carroll-bashing fits it well. If you want to transcend partisanship, you could broaden the category to include attack-dogs of both sides, for the left has its share as well (though it does seem to me to be a larger and deeper phenomenon on the right). So lets just say that it was an example of the atack mentality in general.Comment Posted By Tano On 3.04.2006 @ 12:20
