1. When you update your blog, do you "plug" commenters? Why?
Not usually, but I should. Jerry, for instance, does some good political commentary. Ivan has a super blog about OTR and movie serials. Rodney doesn't have a blog, but I would recommend his if he did: he has varied media interests that I would enjoy hearing about.
2. When you receive comments from "hostile" people, do you ignore the comments or respond in a follow-up blog? Why?
It depends on what the hostile person says. If someone doesn't agree with me and is civil, I'll talk back to them. But I won't respond to people who just post junk to get a rise out of you. These folks are everywhere from newsgroups to e-mail to discussion groups. They have nothing better to do with their lives than make inciting comments.
3. When you learn that someone is stealing from your site, whether it be bandwidth, content, graphics, etc., what is your initial reaction? What do you do about the theft?
I've never done anything about the at least two sites that have swiped episode and movie descriptions off my Lassie site. They claimed the descriptions were from TV Guide, which mine never were.
4. How do you come across "new" websites? Do you comment if you like the site?
Other sites, links from blogs, just surfing or Googling, or occasionally recommendations. Oh, sure, I will comment on them.
5. What type of sites do you enjoy surfing? What type of site do you dislike?
Oh, anything interesting: Christmas, animals, birds, OTR, television. I will even read sites where people dislike what I like if they are reasonable and explain, especially in an amusing manner, why they don't like the particular thing. Something that really turns me off are very badly mispelled sites or those so grammatically incorrect that they become unintelligible. Everyone makes spelling or syntax mistakes occasionally, and I will be more forgiving of children, but I can't stand to read adults who express themselves so badly. Not interested in political sites, including the Bush/Kerry infighting stuff. All politicians are crooks. Don't like hate sites. Pornography is boring.
