It’s been a couple of weeks since WASP 101 was taken down. I wasn’t a regular reader of that blog, and I would never have taken advice, sartorial or otherwise, from Richard. His peculiar style made him the whipping boy of preppy/Ivy/trad bloggers and those who follow them. My visits to WASP 101 were almost always prompted by commentary on other sites about Richard’s pretentions or particularly bad clothing combinations.
In the spirit of freedom of expression, I ask you: Should WASP 101 return? I have a feeling that your answer may depend upon how much you like being at the circus. While it can be fun for some, others will feel uneasy, especially around clowns. The potential for chaos lurks in the background. If you accept the risk, you might be entertained…but you might just as easily find yourself running for the exit. Choose wisely.
TAKE THE POLL
I say let chaos reign.
The guy has every right to maintain a blog. While I didn’t like some of his posts about women, I kind of enjoyed the blog, although I had no idea it was anything but satire until Richard was outed.
Argette, I think many people thought WASP 101 was satire at first. Have you seen any of the comments at Get Off My Internets? There are lots of puzzled, head scratching comments. Check out this link:
