The downside of blogging it that you always seem to be upsetting someone with something at sometime.
Now, to me, there are two things that you can do if "one is upset"......
You can have a lively and somewhat infantile debate ( like we often do c/o Tom Stephenson)
or you can just stop reading that particular blog........simples!
Last night I received a somewhat abusive post comment relating to the culling of the pigs. It was graphic, somewhat rude and threatening, and instead of embarking on any discussion with it's author I deleted the comment immediately banning any further comments from someone, who was so strangely....well....... aggressive.
Since we took the decision for the pigs to "go" I have found it interesting that I have lost five followers, perhaps it is just coincidence, after all Blogger seems to be playing up quite a bit recently, but if my deserters are a result of 85 kilos of sausage lying on our kitchen table, so be it........you can't please everyone !
The anonymity of blog land can give some bloggers a certain carte blanche to vent their spleen in ways that they couldn't possibly do (or dare to) in real life ( and before you go off on one Thomas, I am not talking about you...... I know you, in your real life can be a real stinker face to face so to speak!)..it has happened to me a few times with characters that I once thought stable (oh how wrong was I?).... That is the problem with blogland , sometimes lunatics can slip under your well homed nutter radar!
I remember that one affable old duffer that I follow with some loyalty- the bouncy old soul that is (Yorkshire Pudding) - well he had a awful time once, with one particularly nasty character who left a whole novel of abuse on his blog.
As a regular reader, I remember finding the whole thing unnecessary and all rather upsetting...
If you want a fun debate... great!
,If you disagree with an idea, a philosophy or an opinion....do so respectfully
and if you strongly disagree with anything you read or see...
then..........just fuck offLife's too short!
