Anyone who has spent much time at all on the Bloggernacle knows T&S is the big senescent blog and the BCC is the young upstart blog trying to eclipse it. The thing is, they are morphing into odd caricatures of one another where their identities are being defined more as "not that other blog" than anything else. Any doubt of that was laid to rest today as the two of them mirror imaged each other in utterly strange ways. One careens into absurd unmoderated contention which drives the thread to be shut down, while the other graciously accepts all comers (perhaps silently deleting or editing anything inappropriate) and is pretty much contention free.

Not quite opposites, more like complimentary inverses. Take for example JMS's entirely too typical self-righteous rants and pouting contrasted with Evans' gratuitous empathy and pathos-filled apologies. If the two of them were in the same room, would their energies annihilate one another? Anyone want to contribute to get Julie a plane ticket to the Seattle Bloggersnacker and find out if the Nacle is summarily destroyed? I'll put up the first $20.

The thing I sometimes wonder about a little is that bcc: is the blog posting header pictures actually related to the "times and seasons." They are nice enough graphics and all.

Best observation and post in some time - it's as if you cannot top the absurdity of the original, so you are just reporting it.

Nice post.

Hilarious that Julie managed to get in the last word before the thread was closed.
