For me, blogging is a fun diversion. I do track my stats, respond to comments, and post often. I wouldn't call my blog any where near a "professional" blog. If it was, I'd spell check and read things thrice before posting, get a real code poster, and put more effort into posting items that tend to get the most hits. I would also keep my politics to myself, as most coders (the majority of my hits) aren't interested in what I have to say, and probably not politics in general.

So in the history of my blog, I've only ever got one negative comment before today, and that is when I hot linked to some one's image. They didn't like it, I delinked, and everybody was good. Interestingly though, now that I put my "friends don't let friend's vote democratic" link up, I've gotten a few more negative post, not about politics, but about technical stuff. I think it is "pay back" for my obvious political stances.

Just an interesting observation on human psychology.

Well, the anti-democratic side bar stays up till after the election. Not that this is an endorsement for McCain, but I just can't see giving the democratic party another chance at electing activist judges, not funding our military, further ruining the schools, limiting free speech, letting 80k abortions a year happen, redefine marriage, etc... Sorry, can't do it, no matter how much I'm at odds with the repubs some times. I even worked for the repubs in college but I saw their version of corruption first hand so I quit.

So a lot of people want change, and again I'm not saying the repubs are the answer, just that the dems aren't. Change might come, but be careful what you wish for.
