And if you don't like those facts, Raphael has others.


Blogging Tory Raphael Alexander goes for snark and misses the target badly:

We ask that members of Progressive Bloggers conduct themselves in a respectful manner.

Hear, hear! I commend this decree. Let's start with bloggers who tell the mothers of dead soldiers to fornicate with their grief.

Wow, Raph, that's really clever ... except I'm not a member of PB, and haven't been one for at least a couple of years.

Reality: 1; Raphael: 0.

AFTERSNARK
: It's thoroughly entertaining to watch Canada's whingers and their delightfully malleable principles:

Whingers: "Those leftards are a bunch of uncivil, shrieking, deranged, vulgar, out-of-control moonbats!"

Progressives: "We'd like to have some rules to guarantee civil and polite discussion."

Whingers: "Those leftards are a bunch of censoring, anti-free-speech, hypocritical control freaks!"

It seems like there's just no pleasing some people. Stupid people least of all.

They are bringing in a code of conduct over there that is likely to result in a mass exodus. I'm pretty sure I'll be among those leaving.

Oh don't be so melodramatic. I'm sure we'll work out a reasonable compromise.

Let's hope so. I'm seeing the discussion dominated already by a couple of genuine moonbats.

Let's see if RA has the integrity to correct his post.

Right. Whatever.

"We ask that members of Progressive Bloggers conduct themselves in a respectful manner."

Respect. What a loaded word! The meaning is so subjective as to be practically unworkable in any group. A polite nod in passing may be viewed as respectful and friendly by one person, but can be taken as a dire insult to someone who thinks he deserves a larger measure of acknowledgement.

Be interesting to see how this plays out.
