Don't go away mad...

Just go away.

[rant]It seems that the idiots are out in full force everywhere- again, or maybe still. I can't read any of my favorite blogs without at least one person a day being a bitchy little prat. I've had absolutely enough of people who feel the need to leave obnoxious, whiny, "blah blah blah, I'm better/more clever/nicer than YOU" comments, and explaining exactly WHY they'll never read said blog again. It serves no purpose but to raise the blog owner's/readership's ire, and more often than not has about as much follow through as the ever-popular "I'll never shop here again" or "I'll have your job!" threats from sucky customers.

For the love of fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches, if you don't like the content of a blog, stop reading it. You weren't led there at knifepoint, ordered to read the post, and forced to sign a loyalty oath- to completely agree with everything the blogger says. Self-promoting comments aren't necessary. Declaring that you'll never read the site again will not earn you sympathy, nor will it miraculously change the mind of the blog's author.

This is not to say that reasonable discussion, disagreement, and debate can't take place on a blog. However, there's a pretty simple distinction between someone offering up an opposing viewpoint, and someone saying "I'm taking my toys and going home because I don't like what you say, and you're a poop head." It's the latter that I'm railing against. It's the writers of the latter that can honestly, go blow it out their ears.

And quite frankly, if anyone, at any time, decides that I'm a giant poop head, don't bother telling me, because you'll not be changing my mind. Just do the grown up thing, and stop reading, or get a blog and bitch about it on your own space.

Thanks, ET.

Some days, I wonder. Then I stop caring. Then I start wondering again.

Glad to see you're back from the land of peanutbutter and marshmallow sandwiches!
