I wrote in a comment to somebody's advice column, and the columnist printed it,with my name on. Ok, that's how she usually does it; no surprise there. But a nice old slightly cracked lady called me the afternoon the column appeared, with a rambling commentary that I found a nice polite way of deflecting and ending.
Posted a comment to a news blog and got a certain amount of tinfoil beanie snarkiness in response. That'll teach me to watch my wording.
