If you really want to make that case, you should write something specific for THIS thread, rather than using this as yet another excuse to click on the link to your blog.

I like Niki but she's still paying off debts from the last leadership campaign and raising a young child.  Jagmeet(or anyone who replaces him if he has to step down) should LISTEN to her advice, and should follow her most important recommendations about actually connecting to the social and economic justice movements, the only places on the left side of the spectrum where there is any organizational expertise and anyone working for change with any real passion.

Please folks, don't respond to some idiot blogger who has no intention of replying to, let alone probably even reading, your comments. This bullshit of "indigo 007" really should come to an end.

Good point.  Over and out for this one.

Again, if the mods don't give a fuck, I'm not seeing why anyone else should. And it's been pretty clear for a while now that the mods don't give a fuck.

Oh, and by the way, I think Billyard does actually read the comments. I corrected him on something or other a while back, and he posted on the thread to say that he had changed his blog-entry to reflect my correction.

  Thanks for your comments guys. My blog is an open forum where comments are more than welcome. If you write me a really good blog I will post it as a guest blog. I am constantly on the prowl for good material, send me some.  I should tell you though I have zero tolerance for put downs, abusive language, profanity and off-topic comments.  I spend a lot of time on comment sections but mostly where they are worth reading.

I fail to see what is wrong with posting a link  to my blog on these forums.  Hyperlinks are what democratize the  internet and give everybody  great access to related material and diverse opinions.

The problem has been that what you tend to do is post a link to your blog, than refuse to respond to or engage in the discussion that would naturally follow.  It makes it look as though you only post to increase traffic on your blog page.   This is considered bad form, since Babble isn't here to help people advertise OTHER websites or pages.  If you'd just look in here maybe once a day and post some sort of response to what people say, the attitude most people have about you would probably change.  The point of a message board is the back-and-forth.

It's like going to a party at someone's house and saying to all the guests, "hey everyone... why don't we all go back to my place for some drinks and snacks!"

And that "guest" is then allowed to come back to the host's place whenever they want to intice the other guests to go over to his place over and over again.
