I just got a very heated, somewhat incoherent and possibly weepy comment from someone who didn't read through my "Old Friends" blog very thoroughly and took offense. Which is to be expected, once you post an opinion in cyberspace, however moderate, there will always be differing opinions to be had.
And there's really nothing wrong with that, we all have a right to our thoughts. However, in order for me to publish any particularly nasty commentary, I expect it to come from an actual entity rather than an anonymous swipe.
If you're not going to read a blog but then jump in and respond with rage without leaving some sort of name, the comment will languish in the blogger trash bin rather than getting published. It's my little rule for today. My blog, my opinions, my rules. It's my magical kingdom and opinion at this tiny little url.
But if you really, truly want me to shut the hell up, just click that little X next to the open tab on your browser. It's magical. I disappear with a simple closing of the page. And then you can take that righteous indignation and use its power and heat to start your own blog, featuring your own slavering and anonymous opinions, with no moderation from someone whose opinion gently differs from your own. Think of the possibilities!
And that is my thought (on my little blog) for today.
