We at Bloggers Anonymous would like to call attention to a very unfortunate yet very real phenomenon happening across the blogosphere known as Blog Rage perpetrated by Blog Raging Bloggers (BRB). It’s a serious problem with deadly consequences. In order to underscore this issue, we would like to reference “recovered” Blog Ragaholic J.D. Matthews. J.D. Has long since overcome his problem by starting a blog about music. After all—they say that music soothes the savage beast. He’s put together a list of signs that might indicate you have a problem. Since it’s coming from someone who knows about the devastations of this disorder, we urge you to take this to heart.
Top 10 Signs that you might be a Blog Ragaholic:
10: You own a voodoo doll that says "Die, Seth Godin, die!"
9: You post a YouTube of you kickboxing it out with a cardboard cut-out of Robert Scoble
8: You sold the email address of everyone on your blog roll to Nigerian
Advance Fee Fraud Emailers
7: Your last post was the lyrics to Drowning Pools' "Let the Bodies Hit the Floor."
6: Gilbert Gottfried, Bob Knight, and Tom Cruise all left you a comment and told you to chill out.
5: You do “drive by” commenting—leaving malicious comments and leaving the chaos for other to clean up.
4: Within the course of one day your IP is banned by Wordpress, Typepad, Myspace, Blogger, Facebook, Friendster, and your own ISP.
3: Ann Handley and Mack Collier refuse to let you into their community.
2: You read Bloggers Anonymous and want to hurt the first person you see.
1: You are forced to frequent obscure blogs such as “fungusfetish.com” because they are desperate for comments. Even angry ones.
Note: J.D. "pursuaded" several BA staffers to post this, and after seeing his last comment—we thought it would be a good idea to just do as he said.
