Polipundit Off the Preferred Blog List

For about a year I have been a regular reader and discussion commentor over at Polipundit but as of today, I can no longer recommend it nor will I be reading it. Until they remove a guy named DJ Drummond from the lineup of contributors, I won't be visiting.

Drummond was a leading "Bush bootlicker" in the Harriet Miers nomination debacle and often stooped to calling those who disagreed with the SCOTUS selection "bast*rds" and other niceties. Nearly every time he posts he is wrong and thus, I stopped reading him on a regular basis after his performance on the Miers issue.

His recent attempt to analyze Islam falls equally as short. Comparing Islam's and Christianity's history without a well-rounded understanding of either is just one of many exmples of how he misses the mark. Once one reads about 3 paragraphs of any of his columns, one realizes that Drummond is not only uninformed but has an indearing inflexibility and arrogance to go along with the ignorance.

But this is not the only reason I won't be stopping by there any longer. Polipundit is cursed with some of the worst forum software currently available (at least the version that is running there). No preview, no warnings about incorrect HTML, no spam prevention, and no user registration.

I liked Lori Byrd and Polipundit's title contributor but overall, it's simply not worth the aggravation.

Moving on...

UPDATE: Polipundit has spun out of control. Good riddance.
UPDATE: Lori Byrd has joined Wizbang! The Aerie wishes her well.
