Some freak reader of my blog writes in to CRITICIZE SOMETHING ABOUT MY BLOG?!?!?!?
Dude please bail on the habit of referring to Talking Points Memo as “TPM” w/o a link, as if we’re all hip to nerd political junkie websites. Most of my friends (and I bet yours too, excluding [REDACTED] etc.) don’t know what TPM is (I have to tell them), and they’re people who’d go to your site. . . . No inside baseball, especially w/o links.
WTF, LOL, are you kidding me?!? This guy is gonna second-guess my usage of TPM as shorthand for talkingpointsmemo.com?!?
Here’s what I wrote back to this NUT:
ONLY INSIDE BASEBALL. MY BLOG IS FOR THE POLITICAL/MEDIA ELITE. I’M TRYING TO WEED OUT THE LOSERS, THE IGNORANT! HOW ELSE WILL I BE ABLE TO CHARGE PREMIUM AD DOLLARS?!?!?
Bottom line, if you don’t know what “TPM” is, GET OFF MY BLOG!!! We’re trying to appeal to the most exclusive, most sophisticated blog-reading-always-hitting-“refresh”-ers. I don’t have TIME to explain every little thing to people. I’m operating on a very advanced level . . . a level most people can’t even imagine . . . I’m developing nicknames for political blogs that you couldn’t even comprehend . . .
(By the way, that piece of reader mail was from an OLD FRIEND / PERMANENT NEMESIS. If you send reader mail, I shan’t reply in such an obnoxious fashion.)
