Dave Winer, on why comments on a blog post turned bad:
What bloggers are guilty of -- always -- is telling their story imperfectly. It's the imperfections that make it interesting, and human -- and worth it.
I have an opinion on many things. Typically I have a rather strong opinion on many things. And I've tried to jot the opinions down here on my blog by linking to things and, being as succinct as I'm capable of being, show what my opinion of that thing is. E.g.
However, I rarely get it right. I'm usually off a bit. Not only am I off on my assumptions about that thing but also off on expressing my opinion accurately. Often times I don't even publish my thoughts because I feel like I just couldn't capture what I wanted to express.
