Clueless Blogger

A prominent blogger, at least in my corner of the blogging world, recently posted an e-mail from a reader. While it started out polite, it ended rudely, with an insulting tone, and a smart ass aside. Now, what is the point? If you are going to approach someone and ask them to consider your opinion, treating them as though they are an idiot, or that you are in some way superior, is not generally an effective method. And suggesting that your way is clearly the correct one, without any adjustment to it, is arrogant and dangerous. It is why we have wars. Something to think about.
