Run away from the blogosphere

I try to keep off blogs on the whole as they are like crack cocaine for me. But today Alex referred me to a right-wing website which I had to then look up for work (they were having a go at the Quakers for holding 'parties'/candelit vigils for the 2000 American dead in Iraq).

Obviously I got sucked into the trail. Blinking hell!! It's a minefield out there! I hadn't quite realised the high state of ideological warfare over in America and the sheer volume of anger and bile unleashed across cyberspace every second. I thought it was just Jess :)

I won't go back there for a while.

It is disturbing the kinds of people who express themselves on the Internet.

And that website even had comment registration.

Still, look on the bright side - if it weren't for the Internet, all those vicious bigots with violent pscyhotic-politics would be out roaming the streets.

I need clarification on the part that mentions me, and what you meant by it. My paranoia is running rampant!
