That Was Way Harsh, Tai

The other day I stumbled across this blog. Basically, people submit their blogs for "review" by three women who proceed to rip them apart. I find this blog absolutely atrocious. These women are catty and bitchy and seem to have started a blog as an excuse to be just that. Since people (mostly women) are voluntarily submitting their blogs, the women can justify tearing them apart. And from reading their reviews it seems to me that since their own writing is just sub-par, they pick on others to feel better about themselves. So those who can't write...critique? Where is the logic in that?

Lately I've been really annoyed with the blogging community. When did it get so mean? The attack on Clink the other day and the bitchiness I referred to on Tuesday really surprise me. I don't find this stuff on men's blogs. Why are women so mean to each other? It's really sad that we have to break others down to feel better about ourselves.

Ugh, it's like a virtual high school.

Women in general are more catty I think. Men let more slip past without getting bothered by it and most of the time they don't care enough to do anything. :(

You're just a virgin who can't drive.

Nice post :)

Virtual high school, indeed.

I checked out that site and was also quite horrified. When your own writing is just short of mediocre, who are you to criticize anyone else's? And who would willingly submit their own blogs? It's sad that people and sites like that exist in the blogosphere. But it's great that people like you do!
