There are moments when the difference between bloggers who are real writers and who combine amazing talents of observation with careful analysis, thoughtful construction of argument, and clear presentation vs. the rest of us slobs who are just babbling, hoping the commenters will compensate for our slovenliness, becomes painfully obvious.
Today’s Question by Stephanie Zvan at Almost Diamonds is one of those moments.
Go read it, enjoy it, and then later on join me as we drive Stephanie off the island for making the rest of us look bad.
But seriously, I just want to emphasize, because this point will be missed by some: If you are not sure what Stephanie is getting at exactly, or of some aspect of her argument, perhaps an historical detail or whatever, there is a way to manage that.
SLAP HER SILLY WITH YOUR BLOG-FLAME POWERS AND UZ A LOT OF FUNNILY MISPELT WERDs AND GIVE HER SOME OF !!!!!!!!!! AND ?????????? WITH CAPS LOCK ON!!1!!!11!!!
And if that doesn’t work, post your question as a comment on her site. Because stomping your feet and screaming “I’m too eleventyfuckingsupid to get what this bitch is saying…” will make you look … well, eleventy fucking stupid.
