Debate 1: Criticism: You Tell Us Where Is the...

SB Sarah invited Dear Author to engage in a once a month cross blog debate. Our first was going to be . . . well, I can’t remember anymore, we threw around so many ideas. Out of the THREAD THAT WOULD NOT DIE however, came a very interesting concept about personal attacks and where the line should be drawn, if it could be drawn.

While much of the blog posting is about one particular blog in question, it is used as illustrative of an example that we believed was over the line, in terms of personal attacks. You may disagree. I think this is really an important topic because I see it discussed briefly from time to time. We want to know your opinion as to what is appropriate in terms of criticism.

Please join us, after a deep breath and some chocolate as Sarah says, at the Smart Bitch site for the first of the Smart Bitch/DearAuthor Cross Blog Debate.
