Are Journalists as annoying as Bloggers?

4. Internet Flame Wars

Journalists really don’t do this. They don’t get involved enough in a discussion most of the time to allow a flame war to begin…
5. People who think that pretending to have an intelligent conversation (using good grammar, of course) can cover up their passive-aggressive, self-centred, neurotic personalities.
Again, journalists aren’t prone to this, because they don’t get involved enough in the conversation. And even if they did, they know that they’re better than their readers, so they don’t have to play these games to prove it…
6. People who want their readers to donate via PayPal to their personal blogs.
Not seen anyone do this yet, but given the way the print advertising market is going, it can only be a matter of time.
