Doing this blog thing, it's stirred up the creative juices for me a little.
I've got some ideas that I'd like to share, but some of these ideas are a tad on the offensive side of the spectrum. Well, perhaps more than a tad.
I consider myself an okay-kinda-guy who is pretty sensitive to others' feelings and all, but I do have a misanthropic muscle or two that must get exercised from time to time.
I've got an amusing idea for a little photo-story using stills from the 9/11 movie United 93, as well as a great "dreadful reimagining" of a beloved children's story, which makes The Velveteen Cockroach look like, well, The Velveteen Rabbit.
I have told the plot of my take on the children's story to several people, who agreed it was a clever, humorous idea, but said it would probably be a bad idea to post it -- it was just too damned offensive, or could be perceived in such a way.
But I haveta, I haveta, I tell ya.
Here's how I think I can post these offensive things with a relatively clean conscience.
1. Mark the post as containing potentially "toxic" content.
2. Don't actually include the offensive content in the blog post, but rather a pointer to another page that contains it.
3. The page containing the actual offensive content will require a User ID and password to access it.
4. Give the User ID and password in the blog post, and indicate it's reader beware.
Does this sound like I am covering all my bases?
I'm not asking for permission to post offensive content, merely asking if this is a reasonable way of posting it.
