Twitter reply policy
Twice in two weeks now, I’ve had someone on twitter become awfully upset with me for replying to them after they have replied to me.
One was a concern-troll and probably unaware of it. The other was a troll plain & simple and fully aware of it.
The similarity between the two was that neither seemed prepared for the possibility that I would defend myself. So I thought it might be helpful to post a little twitter reply policy so we all know where we stand.
If you want to take me to task over something I’ve said, then go for your life. I post a lot of criticism so I should be prepared to take it.
I get to reply to you too.
I’ll cop criticism but I won’t cop someone who doesn’t even follow me expecting to be able to bag me without me replying and then acting like I’m the troll.
If you want to take up a matter with me, then bring it on, but if don’t want me to reply back, then shut up.
I’m looking at Tumblr. Friday night is clearly going well.
I had terrible service at a restaurant last week but I tipped them anyway because if I didn’t they’d go out of business but if I do, they might get better.

Where’s the “people’s revolt” now?
If you rented a billboard, what would you put on it?
I’m starting to wonder if conservative is the new alternative. When everyone is wearing black t-shirts, you’ll stand out in a suit and tie. Or maybe you’ll be a conservative in a black t-shirt! Oh wow, you’re twisting my melon man!
The more I see of the young right in the media, the more it appears their position is not so much one of heartfelt principle (which I would respect, even if I disagreed) and more a way of saying, “Look at me! I’m so different! Get me on television!”
