I will never, ever, ever take such a simple thing as an irrigation system for granted again. This business of spending all afternoon watering the lawn/yard is becoming one of those mildly annoying things. On the other hand, I have more of a tan now than I did at the end of last summer.

Someone posted a Jacen Solo themed set on fanmix and while I didn't find any songs that I cared for, I was happy to see my poor obscure fandom mentioned at all. Anyway, I was curious as to the user, so I hopped over to their journal and found one of the more articulate, coherant and lucid arguments into Jacen's character. Believe me, any argument based on logic, with actual facts from the literature, and devoid of any mention of Hitler is a welcome anomaly. Not that I think any more of Jacen, but I appreciate the extra effort.

Now I'm debating whether or not to comment on their journal. On the one hand, they seem like a rational person open to diverse beliefs and capable of objective discourse that doesn't collapse into asinine tantrums. On the other hand, this is teh intranet. So, having read the studies that prove that the interactive aspect of blogging is rated "extremely important"....

What would you do?

Better leave it alone. I don't like baiting. Or anything that might be percieved as such.

Eh. It's not worth the effort.

Well, okay, if I have a spare moment, I might drop a line or two.

Wouldn't hurt. I can always just drop out if it gets ugly. And it's nice to talk to fellow fans.

There's nothing wrong with putting another point of view out there.

If I care enough to follow the fandom, gotta defend my beliefs. Maybe point out the weaker point in their theory.

I hate convictions that stem from misinformation. I'd tell them what they obviously missed and how they used all those quotes out of context.

Well, duh. Can't let this one go with anything less than a paragraph. Hey, if I were wrong, I'd want someone to call me on it.

Respond with a few paragraphs of material centered around a refuting thesis and supported with plenty of unused quotations from the literature (with page numbers, of course) and then introduce myself.

EDIT* - If I had seriously thought someone would to pick "geranium", I'd have chosen another placeholder! You people are so bad.

But you didn't have an option that I wanted! Besides, geranium is such a fun word...
