Apology to Kos

Wednesday, July 13, 2005 at 08:44 PM

We've talked about my anger issues before, and I think it might be time to touch on this subject again.

I owe Markos of Daily Kos an apology. I flew off the handle because he banned some users he thought were inappropriate to his site a couple of days ago, and I never stopped to think about why that was an asshole thing to do.

I know I've said Kos has a responsibility to the left, and he does. And he discharges that responsibility the way he sees fit, and it is not for me or anyone else to tell him how to run his blog, his site, or his topics.

He is right about something when he says if you don't like it, start your own blog, build your own thing.

I fell into the trap of taking the blogosphere too seriously, and maligning the biggest one in the fold for no better reason than that he was the biggest.

For that, Kos, I apologize. I would also like to apologize to John Aravosis of AmericaBlog, for being an asshole to him in the email when he called me on it.

After I took a step back, I realized the only thing I was doing was being a dick. So thanks, John, for helping me see that.

And to all the people on the right I have offended, go fuck yourselves, you cheap tricks.
