Everyone who has written for the Internet has their own horror stories, and this author is no exception; I’ve been called “pretentious,” “painfully philistine,” and “a 13-year with ADD” (and that was all within one article’s comments), and last month’s anti-Eddie Murphy piece drove one reader to bypass comments altogether and track me down on Twitter, so’s to better inform me that the piece was not only “shitty,” but “biased.” (Imagine that! Bias in an opinion piece!) Ultimately, though, it comes with the territory, and if you’re going to make a (meager!) living voicing an opinion, you’ve got to be prepared to hear some dissent. Sometimes, a lot of dissent.
