Bloggers can’t hold a regular posting job at any moderated message board. They have a problem with authority. You’ll find them prowling their own ghettoes, selling crackpot theories and producing illegitimate memelings by the thousands. They are organized in gangs whose members must constantly display loyalty and renew their links to each other. Huge swathes of the internet have been scorched by the ravages of gangland warfare of bloggers.
The other day I was surfing, and came across Mahmoud’s blog. Man, what a steaming pile of howling, incoherent, semi-literate invective against whatever cyber enemy this bloke is fighting at the moment:
We all deplore injustice, the trampling of people’s rights and the intimidation and humiliation of human beings. We all detest darkness, deceit, lies and distortion, and seek and admire salvation, enlightenment, sincerity and honesty… You know well that the US administration has persistently provided blind and blanket support to the Zionist regime, has emboldened it to continue its crimes, and has prevented the UN Security Council from condemning it.
I managed to trace his opponent to a blog called The White House, just as hilarious an outpouring of trash talking swagger and juvenile bravado. Don’t these creeps ever crawl out of their parents’ basement to see what’s going on in the world around them? I bet if you pulled them out of their safe cyber holes into daylight, all this flaming aggression will dissolve into whimpering submission. Pixel tigers, all.
