Gonna try this on for size:

The more difficult something is to say, the more direct it should be said.

What I mean is, if I have something awkward or confrontational to say, I should say it in person... something slightly less severe, the phone might do... something innocuous, email's fine.

I'm not thinking of anything in particular with regards to my own life. I just realized that the internet and modern technology make it too easy to confront without confronting for real... to be insulting or mean-spirited without suffering face-to-face repurcussions.

i think filtered blogging is enough if you never really want to confront them or it would take some time... like parental issues.

but yeah, leaving an unprotected entry to rant against someone who will most likely read your blog is cowardice. i've had that happen a few years ago.

Roy and Nadine aren't meeting my emotional needs. And they smell.
