Mo grump: Rhetorical Nazis

Yesterday I spent some time at Kos, trying to dig myself out of my funk. Didn't work.

Worse, while there, I noticed (with more dismay than usual) how many sneeringly attack others because their posts don't adhere to the English Department Composition Program Rhetorical Mode of the Week.

Okay, I really hate the rightwing fascists.

But English Department Composition Program Rhetorical Mode Nazis run a real close second. In fact, depending on how whiney they get (ex: BUT MY DIARY WAS DEEPER AND THIS ONE ISN'T EVEN A PROPER ARGUMENT!!), I could even be persuaded to consider the English Department Composition Program Rhetorical Mode Nazis to be just as noxious as the biggest, honkingnest Freeper.

Good gawd people, not everyone has your precious sensibilities when it comes to the proper structure of arguments.

In fact, in case you haven't looked around lately, there's an entire world of people who construct arguments completely contrary to how the English Department Composition Program Rhetorical Mode Nazis claim they're supposed to be done.

Sheesh. At least keep it to yourself. Or get your own blog where you can rant all you want about proper form.
