***EDITED TO NOTE...I am VERY hormonal and VERY tired and have had my share of BS and yelling and general crappola from the littles today, so take this with a grain of salt, or a pound, whatever you need to make it go down OK***
I find people really lack any sort of common decency online, and I teach at an online school, so this is based on years of experience. There is something about the anonymity of it all, that people say things that they would probably not say to another person's face, or to someone they know socially. It makes me want to jump through the computer sometimes, shake the person and say "HELLO...REAL PERSON HERE!!"
I just removed a comment from a blog I read....and I am not a comment remover. I read the blog because I find the author writes well, and says so many of the things we all think, and she does so in a funny and interesting way. I removed the comment since another poster, not the author of the blog, basically shit on me for it. Hmm....I was just trying to help and may actually understand the plight of the author what with my gaggle of kid and night working hubby. So anyway, I became a comment deleter since I find that the other poster should really check my blog to see that 1. I may actually have information that is relevant and 2. I am above being told to "shut up" . I am guessing I will not comment on that blog again due to the readership being so damn rude. Sad since I really like the author.
