A couple big links.

Two hours in and the next Wall of Shame is looking promising.

You regulars know when I'm joking, right?

Dude. The comment policy is taking a beating. But it is worth it to know that the people with context can tell when I'm not serious.

DUDE! You do that just to rile me, don't you!! CUT THAT OUT!

eDubin:

I got linked over at MR and Crooked Timber, and for a while it looked like the discussion would focus on the many reasons I repel men. It seems to have turned more general, which is a relief.

Still, there'll be a bunch of strangers at our party for a while, which means starting over with the comment policy and with dating-is-not-a-strategy, and with don't-look-for-agency-to-distinguish
-yourself-and-protect-yourself-from-bad-luck.

Well, I was giggling.

(Still with tears in my eyes from reading the baby hunger post, but giggling nonetheless.)

Hell yeah. Having fun sitting back and watching the show, though. It's been too long since you started a good blogwar.

Other people bring blogwars to ME, and I have to be all: we'll settle this with kindness and respect for everyone and can I offer anyone some organic carrot juice?

I wasn't starting shit this time. The funny thing is that I have another party to critique, but I haven't gotten to it yet. That went so well last time.

Hope I haven't embarrassed myself here too badly already...

No, Joe. You've been great company. We hope you stick around.

The really funny thing about the Crooked Timber comments is how completely they missed the point. All the negative comments are getting judgmental because it's wrong of you to be angry at (specific men? men generally?) who don't want to have kids with you. And of course you didn't say an angry word in that context; your post was about how wrong and stupid it is that being unhappy about the possibility of missing the chance to have kids is treated like a character flaw, or something to be ashamed of.

All of the unpleasant comments over there look as if no one read the posts. (And I don't know you at all in real life, but it's absolutely clear when you're kidding.

Oh no... are you going to badmouth the clothing swap party we dragged you to? Well, I didn't throw the party, and admitted that our connection was pretty peripheral, so I won't be offended if you do. At least the music started to get really good as the night wore on... but we all had better places to be at that point.

Hey Dennis, that was the party I was thinking about. I had a good time, and the music rocked. But I wanted to think about how stylized it was, along a very narrow "Burning Man" look, and then irony about how Burning Man is supposed to be all about freedom of personal expression but the party was as choreographed as any cliquish party would be. I mean, I've only seen the look twice and it was instantly identifiable.

Also, there was the part about how I was talking to this guy at this incredible warehouse party with tractors and awesome music and people rolling around in clothes and everyone dressed up, and I said that Sacramento was just a round of porch sitting and grilling food while people dropped by, and he gave a huge sigh and said "that sounds nice. I just go to warehouse parties."

I think that pretty much covered everything I was going to say. Burning Man blogs ALERT! Link me and say mean things!

I'm kind of a regular, I think (not a regular commenter, but certainly a regular reader!), but I still haven't been able to figure out what you mean by "Wall of Shame." Please enlighten me?

Oh, the Wall of Shame is where I collect and post all the negative comments people write about me. There've been multiple rounds; I think those are all tagged on del.icio.us.

Even if I hadn't read you before I would hope that I would recognize that as joking.

You know carrot juice never solved nothing. Now that you're on the wagon I imagine you've got cupboards and cupboards full of Dutch courage.
