  •  Honestly, this is not an ad hominem but... (9+ / 0-)

    I feel as if you are a better speaker than you are a writer.

    It is really hard to comprehend the information you are trying to convey by reading your diaries. Watching your video distilled some of that ambiguity for me.

    Maybe this is just me, but a great idea would be to write a diary and make a video detailing that diary so that people who don't understand everything in the diary can get a better understanding of it through your video.

    Just a thought.

        I know that it isn't easy readying what I write with an idea of how the reader will perceive it. But maybe if you used block quotes where other material (other than your own writing) is used it might help in giving us, the readers, some clues about the origins of the material?

        •  Such a simple suggestion (5+ / 0-)

          that one would figure a self-identified writer would understand.
          The one thing I've noticed in this little blogger war is the paranoia that runs rampant through this whole thing- both sides claimed the other side called for FBI investigations, visits from police, people talking about being arrested or being "SWATTED" (SWAT teams are called to your home for no apparent reason), or whatever.
          Now you have some guy posting an article, written by someone else and implicating the diarist in some nefarious plot.
          Even with block quotes, it's incoherent.
