Have the courage to be who you are...

...and own up to the things that you say.

A couple of years ago, when I first started this blog, I had written a post about my horrendous experience with Jet Blue.  I mean, I was annoyed, I wrote about it on MY blog.  Well, an "anonymous" person left a rather lengthy comment about what an idiot I am, how selfish I am, blah, blah, blah...I did not post the comment, mainly because I didn't feel the need to publish it.  Well, this person commented again, still anonymous, and then ripped me apart for not publishing their comment.

A good friend of mine who is also a blogger told me that this is fairly common.  Idiots with nothing better to do than leave insulting comments on people's blogs for no reason and to do it ANONYMOUSLY.  Why?  

Because they are cowards.

Get a life, Anonymous.  Seriously.  If you want to rag on a person, at least back up your words by being big enough to show your identity.

Only during that Jet Blue incident did I stop allowing comments, once I let comments come again I have published everything sent to me.  Actually, one time my sister and I had a major disagreement and she left me some unflattering comments here.  I published them.  Why?  Because this is who I am.  I don't have anything to hide.

Do you, Anonymous???

Oh, and one last thought to ponder:  I know that I certainly have better things to do with my time than read the blogs of people that I don't like.  Seriously, if you don't like me or what I write, go away and get a life.

Just sayin..

I too have had some comments like that. I don't think much about it and just delete it. It's my blog and my world. I really feel sorry for people that want to waste their time and live with all that bad stuff. Live is so much more fun being nice.

I agree...a nice world is definitely better. If it weren't for that Jet Blue incident where the person kept writing because I didn't post their comment, I would probably delete it.

Tammy, I can't believe anyone who knows you at all would leave you mean comments. You have the biggest heart! So do you, Stacey. People are just idiots sometimes.

There are unfortunately some very sick weird people out there who get their thrills in very strange ways. They are best ignored or, in the case of blogs where one has control, deleted. As they say, "Don't feed the troll!"

I stopped allowing "Anonymous" comments on my blog because it seemed to be a gateway for spam. I really can't recall a negative comment on my blog. Now on Facebook, that's another story. When I posted about my refrigerator going out and asking if anyone local had a pick-up truck and could help me move the used one, my Aunt Lol'd me. That was the last straw. I blocked her. I'm so glad my misfortune brought her humor...NOT!
