passion, blogging, and those nasty trolls

A quick run down of my morning –

wake up, flick on the espresso machine…

procrastinate on eating – [good for getting that low blood sugar feeling]

check email –

Finally get around to listening to hour long Michael Wesch video [love the lecture… feeling great about this topic of research and inspired with new possibilities]

move on to news sites – [and surprise things start to go sour]

watch the recently released Omar Khadr video, revealing some brutal behavior by Canadian representatives.

read more on Omar Khadr through the BBC, focusing on how they highlight the way Canada has supported the illegal process and never raised a hand to save a 15 year old kid from brutal torture. [time flies, fueled with an accelerated heart rate]

I drink another espresso. [and forget to eat]

stumble upon a self proclaimed “right wing” blog writing against just about everything I support. [heart rate really increasing now]

spew out stupid response attacking the blogger [positive effect on communication –> 0. But it certainly has a repulsive effect. ]

Realize I got trolled.

Realize its noon and I wasted a morning getting trolled.

Ponder ways of building more constructive responses, and ways to deal with political !@#!~. Ways to avoid trolls, or to respond to trolls.

Search for “free Omar Khadr t-shirts”

    Don’t listen to this Muslims Against Sharia nonsense, it’s a sock puppet organization funded by the Bush government to spread propaganda on the Internet. You will never find a a real name, or actual Muslim in the organization.


  3. Uggh… I’m not sure what the politics behind the posts are, but let’s just say the situation sucks, and there no way you can justify treating a fifteen year old the way the Omar has.

    I’d go on, but I’m not sure how to speak about such issues in a productive way… I’m working on it though.
