I don't get road rage. Usually when I'm in the car with someone who does I get this feeling of superiority thinking that I'm above such pointless anger. I rarely even get angry. But on the blogosphere, in posts and in comments, I've noticed that I can be very rude and really come off as a jerk. Since I started blogging back in 2006 this phenomenon has often vexed me. I'll write a post or leave a comment and a few minutes or hours later I find myself wondering why I would write such a thing in such a way. It's not that I begin to doubt whether the thought I was expressing was true, it's just that I realize that I expressed it in the most obnoxious way possible or perhaps that I should have just not said anything at all. It's times when I've come to such realizations that I've been strongly tempted just to delete this blog. But it hasn't happened yet and probably won't in the near future. I had nothing to blog about so I figured I'd blog about this. If I've been a jerk to you on the blogosphere I'm sorry and I promise I'm nicer in person.
