Hmmm. Youch. Still hurting....
Am I the only one to have done this (go on, lie, make me feel better, say 'no').
You've been lurking aroound a blog for a while, some questions come into your mind. The questions aren't to do with the blog exactly, but they are related to the core of the blog subject. You look for an email adddress and don't see it (because, as it happens, you didn't trawl far enough past the pics in the side bar, doh!).
So, you decide to put a question in a comments box anyway. You think you have made it clear that you understand that the topic is a little delicate. You say that you are interested in different perspectives, you note that maybe the blogger might not want to engage with it on their blog. You think that if it isn't, they'll tell you.
Boy, she did!
I guess from the response that my question touched a raw nerve, guess I know where she stands on the issue I was querying. But y'know, I feel like I just had my bare legs slapped, and I think that was an over-reaction. As I said in my response to her response (!)'netiquette' is a tricky thing, and sometimes I slip up a little. All I can say is, cut us poor benighted souls a little slack - it's nice to be nice.
