Why I'm changing my mind and putting Lauren back in the blogroll

Because Shelley's right, in comments at Pharyngula, where she says:

I have read weblog after weblog condemn her and delink her and scathingly say, with a great deal of smug pride, "Well I don't want to hurt Lauren - I guess I'll have to stop reading her'.

You see, Lauren read what I was trying to say in that post. She understood my frustration -- she understood why I made such a bold statement. And now, she's paying a price that breaks my heart to see. She is one of the genuinely good people here.

She's right, in every respect.

My snarkiness was intended in good fun, but I'm afraid that fun has gotten lost in the general reaction if in fact it wasn't artless enough to have missed its mark altogether. And the last thing I want to do is hurt feelings, especially Lauren's. So I'm retracting the snarkiness, to the degree possible. Lauren says she doesn't mind being delinked, but I mind delinking her, so back into the blogroll goes one of the best blogs in all of Toyland.

[edited: And because I'm clueless, I neglected to make sure in the first draft of this post to say this: I'm sorry, Lauren.]

What's the Oscar Wilde quote - "I have spent most of the day putting in a comma and the rest of the day taking it out." You've been busy.
