I am sure that this will be taken the wrong way and abused and snarked but
Advertisements [?]
I really need to say this: I've been here since 2001, I think. Will Pitt has been here longer than that. I'm his mother in case someone out there doesn't know that. Some people on DU seem to really hate him. I don't like this aspect of this site. There have been a lot of really fantastic posts from Will Pitt...many times he ran his Truthout essays through here for peoples' comments and many times he edited his essays based upon comments here. Soemtimes he was a real asshole on DU and, I think, most of the time he apologized for it. So, there is a post on GD looking for him and it's the same old shit and I have really tired of it. I am not leaving here but I feel as if I've lost an old friend in DU...I am not one bit objective about this and I don't think I have to be. I posted on that other post and tried to explain what I think is going on in Will's life right now and. while there have been no direct responses to my post at this point, all I see is snark. Well, I guess we eat our own, don't we.
