Now I say this, in all sincere honesty, not because I care about the attention or reader traffic we get; I haven't checked our stats in months. But blogging is all about criticism and opinion. The Daily Dish is quite adept at "dishing" it out but completely incapable of taking it.
Blogging also entails a certain etiquette that Sullivan lacks. We can knock each other about, but at the end of the day, it doesn't hurt to give the occasional 'attaboy when it's warranted, because we're all trying to row the boat in the same general direction anyway.
I couldn't agree more, more, more.....you get the idea.
