KANSAS CITY BLOGGER BEEF: HYPOCRITICAL CRITICISM FROM MO RAGE AND KICK-ASS COMMENTARY FROM UNCOMMON COURAGE!!!
Let's not forget that TKC is just one part and a leader among a large Kansas City blog scene that features some of the best writing in Kansas City.
Accordingly, we should spend just a few seconds addressing a critic bordering on troll because of his hypocritical attacks.
CRITICISM FROM MO RAGE IS HYPOCRITICAL BECAUSE HE CONTINUES TO LINK OUR CONTENT ON HIS SIDEBAR SO HIS OBJECTIONS TO THE TKC BLOG COMMUNITY AREN'T STRONG ENOUGH TO INSPIRE HIM TO STOP HELPING TO DISTRIBUTE OUR CONTENT!!!
Furthermore, MO RAGE won't engage in any real debate, he just posts Ad hominem attack that is rarely backed up by anything more than a constant social justice warrior sense of entitlement to hate on any opinion with which he disagrees.
No, our love of hotties isn't sexist.
Yes, sometimes commenters posts some nasty stuff but there are also some great insights on this blog and OUR TKC BLOG COMMUNITY REMAINS THE LAST FREE SPEECH ZONE IN KANSAS CITY and one of the most robust places for online conversation in this cowtown . . . Whereas MO Rage won't host a comment that calls him out but rather trolls other comment section and Facebook picking fights and then running away when he's shut down every time.
The reality is, MO RAGE knows our rules . . . He won't delete the link to our blog because our policy in link trading would then delete his link and his "ravings" would disappear from the Internets without a connection to our far more KICK-ASS community than anything he has been able to accomplish within pretty much the same time frame of this blog.
And not to take things to personal, we appreciate some previous criticism from his blog which noted that . . .
"What's both ironic and really pretty awful is that the cheap, sleazy, "yellow journalism" exhibited daily, nearly hourly over at "Tony's Kansas City" blog probably does a better job of covering local stories, especially at City Hall, and across town, than the Star . . ."
It's always nice to be appreciated.
But let's not focus on the negative . . .
A GREAT MANY THANKS TO UNCOMMON COURAGE FOR A KICK-ASS POST ON THE TOPIC OF ONLINE DISCOURSE AND HER RIGHT TO BE FRIENDLY DESPITE POLITICAL DIFFERENCES!!!
What we've seen in this election season is some very brave people stand up and refuse to let the divisive culture war define their lives . . . Realizing that locals of all demographic and political backgrounds have value . . .
Sadly, so many politically obsessed voters can't separate silly season talking points from reality.
We're humbled by a mention from Uncommon Courage:
My Friends Are My Friends - So Leave Me Alone
And the reality here @ TKC is that we remain a Free Speech Zone but we've stepped up our efforts to clean up SPAM - The only real enemy of Free Speech . . .
What's really interesting in this discussion is that we've noticed a great many so-called "liberals" and "progressives" posting some really racist and horrible stuff in order to call out attention against racism in a convoluted online "protest" that still sets off our filers and fits our TKC blog community definition of SPAM. Our SPAM removal politics have become more stringent with the help from our friends residing in INDIA and THE AWESOME PACIFIC NORTHWEST!!! (Thanks to xalti!)
Nevertheless, our mission continues to provide an ALTERNATIVE KANSAS CITY DISCOURSE and we appreciate criticism and commentary from throughout the local blog community that we have always helped to champion.
You decide . . .
