I put up a comment on a blog recently. I felt like I was stating my opinion. My perspective. And the person basically wrote back that I was wrong. I’m wrong? It was an opinion. A view of life from how I see it. Do I ignore this? Do I never post anything again? OK, I posted one more post. And that one got twisted around by someone else. And now I feel like I really don’t want to post there anymore, anyway.
So, if you state your opinion, anywhere, and someone tells you that you are wrong, do you continue? Do you argue? Do you retreat? Is there a “right” way to handle the situation? Personally, I feel I give up too quickly. Maybe in person, if the person is important, one would try to work it out. But in the blogosphere, where many people are posting anonymously, is it even worth the effort?
