I was accused of arrogance yesterday. A case, I’m thinking, of the pot calling the kettle black.
My mind boggles at the hubris it must require to post something to the internet and then expect to control inbound links. It’s as if a pretty girl stood naked in the middle of a public street and then demanded that no one look at her nudity without first obtaining her permission.
Such a girl should understand: she gave her permission when she took off her clothes.
Imagine you were standing in the appreciative crowd, and the pretty girl singled you out. Imagine she pointed and said: “You! I don’t like you! You’re rather tasteless, and I must request that you cover your eyes at once lest your viewing demean my artfully nude performance! Your crude gaze defiles the beauty I so freely share with all these others!”
Would you comply? Or would your jaw drop in amazement that anyone could seriously think it was a reasonable request?
Color me amazed.
