I'm probably the one who find your blog via the Technorati search for "rankism". I maintain Robert Fuller's web site (http://www.breakingranks.net), and I try to keep an eye on references to rankism I find on the Internet. Your earlier post is going into my next update of Fuller's bibliography page. I also came back tonight because I'm going to give Fuller an overview of interesting discussion of rankism, and your earlier post is on that list. :-)
OMG! this is what blogging is all about, isn't it? Being part of a larger conversation about the world and ideas? This is what bloggers want, right? To be noticed? Why oh why then when I first read this comment did I feel like deleting the post in question? How uncool would that be? I have strong opinions; I don't always share them diplomatically. That's why I usually just limit my ranting to my husband and son who know me well and expect it from me. But I figured it was safe to start blogging about such things, after all, who would find my dinky little blog out of the masses? And it's one thing if just any old person reads my blog, but Fuller himself?
In thinking about my post on rankism, I am remembering a comment from my husband, that I could have been more clear on a few points. (of course now I am not sure what he said, so I would have to ask him to reread the post and clarify what he thought I should clarify) So.... would it be cheating to go back and edit the old post? Probably. Therefore I won't.
