Down the Memory Hole

Kynn at Shock and Awe posted a intellectually devoid little post called Six Thousand Words. I commented

Where are the funny captions? That is how talented people post out of context pictures.

I was then told that he had “had enough of me” and that I wouldn’t be commenting there any more. I have to quote vaguely, because those comments have disappeared down the memory hole.

I don’t think what I said was out of line, obscene, or beyond the pale. The only conclusion I can draw is that I hit too close to home, became inconvenient, and had to be removed lest I steal the point.

Things disappear down the memory hole there. Keep that in mind.

    Alternately, I could just be tired of you. Has nothing to do with hitting too close to home, only with people who wander in and insult me. I don’t see any need for putting up with that.

    It IS possible to make comments and disagree without putting down other people.


    PS: There’s plenty of context on the pictures — click on each for a link to the original source.

    Wow. Can’t take criticism, must delete. Earth crumbling. World view challenged. Does not compute.

    “It IS possible to make comments and disagree without putting down other people.”

    Yes, and it possible to go through your whole life only doing it missionary style. It don’t make it a good idea.

    If you did not say anything offensive, then what’s the big deal. Constructive critism makes humans better. Maybe he just can’t take the heat.
