Yeah, I’m talking to you Anonymous
Maybe it’s because I’m still fairly new to the blogosphere or perhaps it has always been this way, but lately it seems there have been quite a few rude comments left on various blog sites I frequent. The kind of comments I am referring to generally have little or no relevance to the topic the blogger has written about. Often these types of comments are purely absurd, disgustingly racist or just plain mean. And these particular asinine comments always seem to be written anonymously by some big frickin’ wanker.
Perhaps it’s just me, but frankly I’m fed up with it. And while not everyone will agree with all of the viewpoints expressed by a blogger, leaving a nasty or downright belligerent comment on someone’s blog just for the sake of being a jerk is just plain wrong. If someone is going to be a ginormously ugly dick and engage in that sort of behavior, then the least they could do would be to NOT act cowardly by hiding behind the word “Anonymous”.
Now it is always possible that sad little “Anonymous” has nothing better to do with their time than childishly insult bloggers. Or perhaps they are clueless morons and don’t realize the amount of time, effort and thought that goes into every single post written by a blogger. Maybe they can’t comprehend the fact that some of us bloggers literally spend countless hours writing, drawing, researching and putting together materials for our blog. Or that we often carefully consider the content we post and try to anticipate how it will be received by our readers.
Quite often our posts involve baring our souls and our life experiences. Sometimes our posts are merely geared toward entertaining our readers. Either way it should be obvious that all of the effort we put forth at the very least deserves a bit of respect.
So to all the asshats trolling around the blogosphere and hiding behind the name “Anonymous” I say pull up your skirt, grab your balls and effing man up once and for all. Those of us whom you so blatantly criticize would love to have the opportunity to check out your blog(s) and see just why it is that you think you reign supreme almighty ruler of the blogging world. And we might even want to leave a comment or two on your oh-so-perfect blog(s).
In the meantime, if you can’t start playing nice “Anonymous” then why don’t you go suck on this lovely award I just received from Rabbit over at The Long Journey to the Middle:
Cheerio you “Anonymous” shit weasel!
