A Little Clarification
I guess a little clarification is required for my â€śWhat the hell?â€? blog. I can see that some people my have been a little irritated, but I felt putting peopleâ€™s names down was harmless. This is an informal forum for us to express our ideas, concerns, and general feedback on class and work issues. I donâ€™t think we should hold the blog comments to any standards that we wouldnâ€™t apply to talking to each other in the classroom or work.
Yes, the blog is a public forum, as witnessed by Mr. Hairâ€™s blog receiving a comment from an escort service. However, we arenâ€™t using last names and how many people outside us are really reading this. Yes, I was being very critical of many people, but I did not omit myself in that blog. I just wanted us to recognize what was going on.
I hope I didnâ€™t ruffle anyoneâ€™s feathers, but I had to spit some posts out and that was one of the things floating around in my head. Fact is, if I hadnâ€™t let myself get so behind with my blogs, I probably wouldnâ€™t have felt it necessary to make that post. So if I pissed off someone with that rant, I am sorry. Nothing personal

I think the problem here is that it caught people off guard when you just named them online. If you told them in person they'd have the chacne to talk to you about it and maybe offer you some sort of clarification so that they (me, too) didn't feel like they were getting attacked without any sort of opportunity to explain themselves. Had it been in person, I would have told you that brainstorming is what I needed and thus, is what I asked for help with. You should just be careful that, although you need more blog entries, you don't offend people who you don't mean to when you write them. It'll just make people grumpy and it'll make you have to write blog entries explaining yourself. Anyway, I am drinking some Japanese beer right now. I think it's the best kind. It's the only thing that tastes good with beef jerkey. Anyway, have a good night and cross your fingers and hope I beat Adam in blogging and commenting.
Whatever, Jason, you said what you had to say. I think a lot of people didn't appreciate you naming names, though. Or at least, they didn't appreciate you naming the names that you named. Or more to the point, Adam was the last person you should have called out. That's not just from me, it's from conversations I've had with other people from the class.
I don't mean to bust your proverbial balls (sorry for the expression), in fact I think what you did was toaaly called for. You just might want to be careful how you go about doing something like that in the future. I mean, people have egos, and noe of us are perfect. And I think some of the negative flack you got back was due to what some people percieve to be a pompous attitude on your part. Please don't take this as me saying that I think you're pompous; just from observing others' reactions to when you went off that one class period.
The point is that we all need to (or should try to) work together. Not just in the clas; hell, it's already over. But as we continue to work together, I think we all--you, me, everyone--need to try, TRY to put all of our egos aside to make the writing center the best that it can be.
I know you didn't mean for things to come off the way they did. But, as I said, I think what you had so say needed to be said. So I don't want you to feel like you can't or shouldn't bring up the points that you did. Everyone needed to hear that. You just might want to keep the bigger picture in mind next time. That's my advice: take it or leave it.
Hello. HWIRZWUN2 [url=http://www.tHWIRZWUN3.com] HWIRZWUN3 [/url] Thanks
though I'm not part in your class but I can say it's not good to do something stupid in online community. Naming and saying bad things about people online can give you more enemies and your reputation will be in a mess. Not good.
the most common and widely being advertise services of many London Escort are the booking and dispatch services. This means that you can hire an escort model and pay for her rate depending on the hours and it is now up to you on what activities you may want to perform with her.
