This is completely off-topic and meta, and I know I shouldn’t let this topic bother me so much, so I’ll keep it short.
I write this blog for free, for fun, in my spare time, entirely on my own – photographs, research, writing, everything. I try to gather as much info as I can before posting, but I have my limits. If I waited till I’d done an NRHP-level research document, there wouldn’t be anything here.
So I get kinda pissed off when a poster who is otherwise giving useful information feels the need to append snotty comments like these:
This is called “being a jerk”, and it’s rude and unnecessary. For me, it obliterates the pleasure of finding out more about a building, and it rather spoils things for the vast majority of commenters who are playing nice.
Also – it’s very easy to find information about something when you already know all about it. Try starting cold sometime, like with nothing but a street address or even less. You’ll find it’s a lot tougher.
So, in summary, don’t be a jerk – to me, to other people online, to other people in real life.
Sorry for the diatribe – back on topic now. Wait’ll you see these cool Art Deco churches I’ve got coming up!
