The blog war involving Stuck on the Palmetto, Critical Miami and the Daily Pulp would be comic if it weren't so dumb. The battle, it seems, is over the anonymity of a guy named Rick -- who has been writing on Stuck on the Palmetto for a long time....and now says he won't blog anymore because
Bob Norman has threatened to tell the world of his identity.
Ole Rick and others say that blogging can and should be anonymous. For the record, I HATE anonymous bloggers. They, in my view, are chickenshit people who don'[t stand behind their words. Bob Norman didn't out the guy. I would have in his shoes.
So come on Bob, give me his name and I'll print it on this blog and in the newspaper.
