So I was at the local ScienceBlogs million comment party last night. I was talking to Amanda Laden about something to do with Greg’s blog. She started a comment, obviously meant to lead to some other point, with, “There was the guy you were arguing with recently.”
I though, Let’s see, most recently. “Do you mean X?”
“No.” She shook her head. “I know X.”
“You don’t mean Y?” That was moderately high-profile, as low-profile internet slap fights go.
She waved a hand dismissively.
I thought harder. “Well, I’ve been going back and forth with Z a bit lately over the election.”
She frowned. “No, that wasn’t it either.”
We never figured out who it was, and I never did find out what the rest of her point was going to be. I did, however, discover that it’s possible, just barely possible, that I have a tendency to get into arguments in the blogosphere. Who knew?
