Before blogs, idiots never expressed their half-baked opinions in public!

Is that you, Bill O'Reilly?

Yeah, it really sucks that people are allowed to easily publish their own reports, thoughts, and opinions to a worldwide audience without having to be filtered by News Corporation or one of the other four global media giants. Damn you, Internet!

The RIAA/MPAA were big nags about P2P technology because so many people used the fruits of that technology to engage in behavior they disliked. The technology consisted of some good ideas, and the uses people were finding for it were just applications of what they were already doing to new technology. Rawwr bad grrr.

The anti-blogger sentiment strikes me as similar. People have been communicating their vapid lives and ignorant opinions to each other forever. Letters to newspapers, social groups, protests, telephones, magazines, television, and of course the one-time ubiquitous "under construction" personal website. People are annoyed by the self-important, self-absorbed "blogosphere" that fancies itself the death of news organizations and criticize the technology and opportunity for individuals to express themselves through writing to anyone interested in reading what they think.

The thing that's funny is people posting their opinions on subjects in comments on web forums, complaining about blogs. Yes, I'm sure your opinion is the valuable one, dear forum-goer.
