Blogs - And God's Youth.

Just don't, kids. It's not good to "want a voice," and you shouldn't be tempted by quizzes about flirtation. Plus, idle words are evil. Fortunately I am a professional and a specialist so I get to have one if I want.

About a third of what this guy says is dead on, of course. Blogs are blather, the "current mood" is ridiculous, and posting quizzes and babbling about nothing is in fact a huge waste of time. Point taken. He allows email and instant messaging, though. You'd think that recent events would have given him pause especially about IMing. My favorite paragraph:
Then there is the language itself. Here is a mild example: “If your a hater then whateva i dont have time 4 your negativity in my positive world.” Phrases such as “screwed up,” “I dunno,” and every type of swear word are commonly used. One blog by a young twentysomething in a splinter used the acronym “OMG,” which is a shorthand way to take God’s name in vain.
Wasn't Tyre incinerated because they kept saying "I dunno"?

It strains my imagination to try to picture how Christianity will manage to get even stupider.

Is there even a rock-bottom to hit anymore?
