105. Just some advice, in case it gets lost up-thread

I'm not sure if he's trying to become a journalist, but plagiarism and muckraking can only get one so far. Interesting discussion and compelling news is what most people here appreciate and enjoy.

On your website you list some kind of "SCANDAL" in your blog about stuff thats going on at your High School. That's all well and good, but the topic is completely senseless. Why try to stir the rumor mill further when that type of behavior (teenage sex) is a private matter best left to the people involved and their families? You've done the same thing here with the anti-Hillary "EXPOSE" - it did nothing more than accomplish nothing but a flame war, and I've been an Obama supporter all along.

I commend you for being active in politics and I hope that you stick around, but this framing yourself as some type of Matt Drudge-esque breaking news muckraker won't fly around here. And please, don't pimp your website so blatantly - put subtly in your signature and if people are interested, they will go there.
