    Most bloggers are idiots - Agree or disagree?

    One thing I've noticed is that most people who blog extensively, specifically in the realm of politics, are both a) incredibly biased, and b) unequivocally stupid.

    Do you find this to be true, or do you think the percentages aren't quite as high?

    Is a forum such as this the equivalent of your own personal blog?
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    ...as far as the question...

    Biased? Well, yeah, duh.

    Stupid? Depends on if they agree with me, or not.

    No, DP exists as a construct for debate and, hopefully, point-counterpoint.

    Blogging is a forum where vomit goes unchallenged, by and large.

    Blogs do not go "unchallenged". While the blog owner can moderate "as can forum mods..." what comments get through, I have often seen bloggers engage in worthwhile debates over issues. Are most bloggers idiots? I'd have to say no, at least, most successful bloggers wouldn't be. It takes at least a little bit of talent to have something that catches the attention of hundreds.
    Either I'm right or you're wrong.

    I would have picked some of the above.
    There are some on this site who are nuts, or overly biased on both sides!

    Fortunately many on both sides here are sensible & willing to listen!!
    Myself included I hope.

    Most, if not all, blogs are nothing more than biased commentary coming from a distinct ideological slant, excluding all relevant information that contradicts what they believe and thereby, what they want others to believe.

    i will say that most of the "natural" blogs are packed with incredibly unscientific bull****. my guess is most of the writers don't even know what pubmed is.

    Re: Most bloggers are idiots - Agree or disagree?

    The most telling aspect of a blog is whether or not they accept public comments.

    Those that do are usually pretty fair-minded, though some abuse the concept by overly moderating.

    Those that don't are usually crap and just a place for a person to puff them self up.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Bloggers are hacks, pure and simple.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
