SF Signal: Mind Meld

The folks at SF Signal invited me to participate in their latest Mind Meld feature:

As a reader, can you enjoy a story that is pushing an opposed viewpoint from one that you hold (religion/politics)? If the author is prone to holding, and writing about, views opposed to yours, can you enjoy their works or do you stop reading them?

Check it out here. JP seems to think that my answer might generate some discussions. . .

Well said Pat! I read to escape reality and find myself wanting to know "what if...?" and the authors I choose give me that. By no means does it change my view on life, the universe and everything. Which, by the way is 42. I knew it long before whats his name wrote about it. After all it has to be true if you Google "life, the universe and everything" it will clearly give you the answer.

How about an author that likes deleting blog comments for no other real reason than they disagree with his leftwing facist views.

mark: that guy sounds like a bit of a dick if you ask me. And by his dumb comment, he knows nothing and has just made a fool of himself. Stick to what you do.

Well, brave anon, I'll delete blog comments if they don't contribute intellectually to a debate, or if they edge on racism...
