Informed Comments on the Web

Indeed
I was cruising through my reader earlier when I came across a post that I felt the need to comment on. For the betterment of the internet as a whole I decided to take a new approach. One that differed from the traditional 'shoot first, learn later' approach. There is a chance that this topic might have already been covered extensively elsewhere, but since it has yet to be discussed here, we can safely assume that you are about to reach enlightenment.
When I posted my comment I decided to include the fact that I was uninformed on the subject. I'll give you a moment to recover from the mind**** you just suffered and will repeat myself, I flat out said I didn't know jack (well obviously I know Jack, I think I even know a Jackson, I'll need to check my contacts though). I also decided to include a hashtag: #informeddecision
I felt the hashtag helped emphasize the uninformedness I was advertising, but I also think it serves as a 'read the whole comment before replying' check (if you are confused when you skim something once, you will likely read it again for clarity). Plus, it will undoubtedly put a smile on the face of reader who finds themselves perusing the blasphemous nonsense. I was pretty sure that the hashtag needed to say I was uninformed since the sentence earlier said I was informed and having the hashtag say I was not informed as well would have been a double negative (that's how that works right?).
Anyway there you have it. If you don't know what you are talking about just say so, and feel free to feed the web your ignorance as usual, but make sure to include the #informeddecision hastag so you can avoid breaking any grammatical rules. Your'e welcome.

Of course you can comment here (below, not here literally) and you should if you want your children to love you, but until Google does comment sync for Buzz with Blogger/Google Friend Connect, there will be two conversations on every post and the world will continue to be divided.
