fuck you, man.
you shouldnt bash someone for being pretentious in print and then write an equally pretentious article against them. that's hypocracy.
your article made me cry. it's entirely rude to hate someone you don't even know. i wasnt trying to dictate my musical taste, which is why i never mentioned specific artists. i was merely trying to address an issue that i see in society today. calm down and get over yourself, please.
The trouble with mean-spiritedness is that even when you set out to write something that will make someone cry, it still makes you feel bad when it actually works.
I'll refrain from piling it on by nitpicking the comment. Except to say that it's spelled "hypocrisy." And to say that if you're writing an opinion column about music, you might as well mention your own musical taste, or at least some real-world example of music, or you're writing in a meaningless theoretical vacuum.
I do, however, want to say that I don't think the blog post was pretentious. Cruel, insensitive, heartless, mean, gratuitous, yes. But it had no pretense of being anything greater than that. I would argue that it was merely arrogant, and that there's a difference. But I will allow that others may disagree.
There is a lesson here. If you insult people by name on a blog, even one that no one ever reads, every one of them will eventually find out and have their feelings hurt, and probably hate you forever. Use this knowledge wisely.
