Confession time: I don't religiously read all the comments posted on various items on this site. Sorry. It's just sometimes I'm not in the mood. Or I don't have time. Or I have some other reason that probably isn't really compelling.. (I do however read the vast majority of my e-mail, even if I don't respond to it.)
One thing I do check from time to time is the "referrals" generated by my counter down at the bottom of the page. Most of the referrals come from Instapundit. Some have no referrer at all (I think that these are the result of someone clicking on a bookmark). A few other blogs also refer a few odd people to me. Usually I'll go to their site, do a little search and find out what they've said about me.
So, why am I telling you all of this? Well, I hadn't read my comments recently, but I saw a single link (emphasis on purpose) to Jeff Hauser's "adjunct blog" entitled "Picking Fights."
After reading some of Hauser's extensive vitriol, I'm concerned that Hauser may not be around much longer -- he's going to suffer a heart attack. It's just not healthy. When you headline a post: "More Hoy -- God, I hate reading his site " Maybe you should just stop? Unless it's a sadomasochistic streak. Most normal people just don't repeatedly put themselves through something that's so painful.
