F You And Your Blog
Anonymous commenters are nothing new to bloggers. Most are spiteful, some are scorned, but nearly all share the same characteristic: They flat out don’t like you. A few months back I did a fake interview (I know this must be crushing to you to realize that encounter was fabricated) with anonymous as to his motivations for being such a dick. But that was purely made up and so the real mystery as to why someone would spend all day insulting a blogger still remained. Well, lo and behold, one of my more virulent critics, in real life, actually offered to give my readers a little insight into the mind of a bitter, angry anonymous commenter. A lot of you hate him, almost none of you like him, but the man who calls himself ANON1 has been pretty steady ripping on me and my readers ever since the Jenn Srterger fiasco back in March. I don’t know this guy, I’ve never met him. I have never talked to him and he only communicates to me thorough an email address that looks to be from a nefarious fictional character. So the mystery remains. But for those curious as to why Anonymous chooses to spend so much time arguing with you, or with me, perhaps this can shed some light on his motivations…..
When I look at
True or False? Most people lead boring lives….True. So why the hell do they feel the need to post about them. Like anyone cares what you dressed up as for Halloween. What the fuck? Note to the world…If you dress up for Halloween, are over the age of 15 and are not related to me by blood I could care less. If fact, if you are over the age of 15 and still dress up for Halloween you should be beaten with Paul McCartney’s ex-wife’s wooden leg. But it’s not just the holiday posts; it’s the everyday posts and the commenting on comments. See example below…
“Blah, blah, blah…so today I decided to organize my McDonald’s fries into a peace symbol. This brought me to the realization that the war in
Now that is what an average blogger’s post looks like. Not the context, but the stupidity and lack of thought that goes into it. Let’s now examine typical comments.
ASSHOLE ONE SAID:
“Wow, what a great post. I too did that with my fries except I used pepper to symbolize the gun shot wounds. You are such a great person and Bush is not.”
“Very good post my little baby. We are having meatloaf tonight so get home early. Make sure you fill dad’s car with gas also.”
“Yeah, like way cool post. I wish we could all just sit around, smoke bowls and sing songs all day. This war is like totally not cool…”
Now the comments are bad, but most people take it one step further by responding to each and every comment:
ASSHOLE ONE ~ You are too kind. Thank you for the words of support. With the help of you, me, Grandpa Steve, that bum on the corner, Oprah and Santa Claus we can defeat the evil Republican army.
MOM ~ Sounds good. Did you wash my underwear?
THATGUY ~ Wish I could but this damn kid I had won’t play by himself. Maybe you can come over after he is asleep.
My point is this people. No one gives a shit about your boring life. 90% of you are not funny, 95% of you are not attractive and 99.9% of you should not have blogs. Imagine if people spent less time on their blogs? There would be less people worrying about bills and more people getting laid.
Oh well, it could be worse. I could be a single mom stuck in
