I mean, I understand the definition as it relates to the blogosphere; I just don’t understand the purpose. I’m not new to reading blogs and comments; however, I am new to commenting.
I joined the NRCC on Facebook when I got home from the Redstate Gathering. Just now, I received an update from them on Facebook about “targeting 70 democratic seats.” This interested me so I followed the link. The comments are horrible. There is nothing even remotely intellectual in the comments.
While I understand the perceived dangers of moderating comments too closely, this is a farce. Intelligent discussion is one thing but a pure disruption of the comment section is something else entirely. This disgusted me.
So, why does this exist?
