Hotline:

Also worth noting: Some present were a bit surprised to hear bloggers Aravosis and Kevin Aylward from Wizbang freely admit the fact that they too delete comments from their boards.

What planet are these people living on? No wonder the Washington Post freaked out this week. They have no clue what a blog is and how one is run. C&L readers know what I've been going through trying to keep the threads on topic and cleaning up the comments section. Every day I get emails telling me what I'm doing right and what I'm doing wrong. I'm glad just to be involved in the process. Little by little we'll make them understand, but My God buy a book, take a class or email me and we'll set up a phone call so I can fill you in. They actually think we do all of this in five minutes.

Duncan sums it up this way:

"Getting shitloads of nasty feedback when you get something wrong is, actually, "nothing." It's just another day as a blogger. I've always thought the whole "self correcting blogosphere" nonsense was just that, nonsense. Especially with all the mostly-conservative blogs which don't have comments public correction requires that they actually, you know, correct themselves. But nonetheless everybody deals with the feedback, and anyone with even a modest amount of traffic deals with quite a lot of it.

Boo hoo. People were mean. Welcome to my world."

Can you help us out?
