Re: Is civility in the blogosphere overrated?

Re: Is civility in the blogosphere overrated?

See my reply to uncle eb. My comment was very limited in scope and specific to the topic.



Also, as I said in my comment, I have read this sentiment in this forum many times before and I...

Re: Is civility in the blogosphere overrated?

Wow, uncle. What does all that have anything to do with my comment?

My comment was about the content of the article that Brendan cited. It has to do with civility in the comment section, lack of...

Re: Is civility in the blogosphere overrated?

Jeff, my initial comment said that I disagree with his bullying. I didn't say that he is a bully or that his most prominent feature is bullying. I don't think I need to qualify it more.



Yes,...

Re: Is civility in the blogosphere overrated?

I disagree with PZ's comment, as well as with his arrogance and the value that he seems to hold so dearly: bullying. I'm sure his audience celebrates him, and naturally, I'm not one of them.

Re: Is civility in the blogosphere overrated? (AemJeff & Bobby G)

I tend to agree with your comment.

I take your point that incivility is in the eye of the recipient, within certain limits. I have objected to the more extreme, overt forms of incivility, as I...

Re: Is civility in the blogosphere overrated? (AemJeff & Bobby G)

Early on in this comment section I made the observation that "civility" or lack of wasn't sufficiently defined. When I read your comment above, I had no choice but to wonder what definition you may...

Re: Is civility in the blogosphere overrated? (AemJeff & Bobby G)

I agree that people in a forum can exit. I also agree that the primary goal of participation is others' well-being. However, I don't think that it is so evident that participants have (or should...

Re: Is civility in the blogosphere overrated? (AemJeff & Bobby G)

First, a similar dichotomy exists between men in academia (or highly educated, well-read) and outside. If that's the case, probably a mix of intelligence and education can explain the gap.

Thank you for your response. Generally speaking I tend to agree with you about this topic. Perhaps I depart from your position in regards to the extent of my participation, although I admit this has...

Re: Is civility in the blogosphere overrated? (AemJeff & Bobby G)

Your view about the comment section as a general topic. I was also surprised that you would think de Waal would think of it as collaboration, and not recognize the competitive aspect of it.

Re: Is civility in the blogosphere overrated? (AemJeff & Bobby G)

That sounds like an interesting observation. Would you care to expand? There aren't that many women on this forum to start with, and probably even fewer invested in maintaining civility. I would be...

Re: Is civility in the blogosphere overrated? (AemJeff & Bobby G)

Most likely men and women's appreciation and enjoyment of aggressive behavior follow overlapping but not identical distribution curves. Do men or women enjoy more watching boxing, war movies or even...

Re: Is civility in the blogosphere overrated? (AemJeff & Bobby G)

Heh. Strange dudette.



The question may be broken up in parts. First, are there more male commenters because there are more males interested in BhTV kinds of topics, and therefore watching...

Re: Is civility in the blogosphere overrated? (AemJeff & Bobby G)

The lack of sufficient time has been a problem in many Apollo diavlogs. Perhaps we should have these topics discussed in 30 minute (or whatever the time limit is) episodes.

Re: Is civility in the blogosphere overrated? (AemJeff & Bobby G)

Interesting talk. As usual too short.

It seems that the topic was kept at a rather general and abstract level. Although there was an attempt to define what civility, or lack of, means for this...

Re: Is civility in the blogosphere overrated? (AemJeff & Bobby G)

This is discrimination! Against those of us who are at work all day and unable to watch these diavlogs until the evening when all kinds of cuts have been made!! Censorship!!!
