For a few hours today I had up a post that was part of a meme started by Calvin. It detailed 18 things I "hated".
I've made the decision to pull the post.
The bottom line is that I don't really "hate" most of those things. I don't "hate" bands, cities, people, TV shows, etc... I dislike them. I find them unpleasant or not to my taste, but I'll keep "hate" in my back pocket for things upon which I feel a certain passion.
They asked the question "What technology do I hate?" I hate the technology that allows the NSA to listen to my phone calls without a warrant. I hate that we're in a place where intelligent people feel that its necessary to do their job, and that if something akin to 9/11 happened again, they would be held responsible. I hate that. I don't "hate" the little switch box and recorder server farm.
I do, however, hate brussell sprouts. God intended them as food for rabbits and garden moles, but not for people. At least not for this people.
So if you saw the "hate" post here, and you're wondering where it went... I hope its okay that a better nature prevailed.
I think NTT, who commented upon the post, will understand.
