WORST. HATE BLOG. EVER. Matthew Neal Sharp, a programmer and blogger, has concluded that he does not think much of the peripatetic technology journalist and blogger Xeni Jardin (NPR, Wired News, Boingboing). So Mr. Sharp decided to create a blog dedicated to continually dipping her virtual pigtails into the digital inkwell. The site is replete with nasty, sarcastic invective delivered in spot-on Comic Book Guy tone.
Ms. Jardin tried to be a good sport, posting on Boingboing that Mr. Sharp's blog is "a total hoot." But that only enraged Mr. Sharp further.
You can see the love — er, that is, the hate — at xenisucks.com. An interesting side note: Mr. Sharp plays in a band, Mathgeeks, with Ms. Jardin's colleague, Rick Karr, who reports technology and culture for public radio.

Did you catch that? The bullshit threat of "legal" action? Oh noes! He's going to sue us all!
Totally weak and undermines any respect I would have had for the guy's argument.

Is this the same Violet Blue that ruined Fleshbot? Or is there another one?
Reading Xeni's petty, faux-composed response, along with Xenisucks' 27 paragraph comicbook guy-esque Usenet response, reminds me just how sad and inept social interaction on the Internet can be.
20 minutes of Miles Davis a day should be required for all routine Internet conversationalists until they learn to navigate their cyber-interactions with a little bit of cool and class. Just imagine a smooth bass line in the background before you hit post and think: 'is this rhythm congruent with my long angry string of sarcastic capslocked run-on sentences'?
