A popular writer at leading Australian political blog The Political Sword has hit back at "pedantic" criticism of her work. Responding to a series of posts at Club Troppo (an obscure political blog frequented by boring middle-aged men) Feral Skeleton writes:
Some stuffed shirts don’t even realise that their boring little blog has taken to scandal-mongering about someone who writes on another, more popular, blog just because they don’t play by their ‘rules’. How conservative these pathetic, so-called ‘radical centrist’ individuals seem to me with their tut-tutting and new, even more sensorious drivel.
Not that they are going to stop me blogging. I have been going since long before ‘Club Troppo’ came on the scene. With original, thought-provoking blogs that people enjoy reading. And I will be here long after their tendentious little, boring as bat’s pee blog has dried up and blown away due to lack of interest. Which is the way it was sputtering along until they decided to gin up interest in what I have done recently. Which increased their readership, marginally it seems to me, but just goes to prove how I am the interesting one and not them. As in, if my blogs weren’t so powerful, interesting and enjoyable, no one such as they would be taking the time to create a furore about them.
