"...i usually find it hard to despise. but umair is full of shit re: @scobleizer & "Valley is Blowing It" post: http://tinyurl.com/6hf2vh"
lol. Look - call me full of shit all you like. That's fine, and it helps us have good discussions.
But isn't "despise" a bit ott?
Would Dave really feel he had the license to ummm...despise me...if I wasn't a brown dude in London?
No, I'm not saying Dave is racist. But it sure feels like there's something deeper than mere disagreement happening. And it's perhaps easier to jump into "despising" people who are different from you.
I take a lot of attacks. Funnily enough, the people that make them usually come from a very specific demographic.
So I don't feel like Dave would have said this about someone, well, more like Dave. Maybe that's wrong, I'm sure many of you think I'm being too sensitive, I'm probably more than guilty of it myself.
But from my perspective - it doesn't feel like debate: it feels like hate.
This will be the last admin for a while, I've had enough of this navel-gazing.
And thanks to everyone for all the feedback on yesterday's thread - it was really, really helpful, awesome stuff.
don't get me wrong - it doesn't affect me hugely.
i'm just pointing it out.
thx for the comment and i'm glad you're enjoying.
